The Long Wait is Finally Coming to an End

Eric is coming home on Tuesday.

Need I say more?

One little sentence, six words, doesn't seem to do it justice.

Eric is coming home on Tuesday.

I'm filled with every emotion imaginable: excitement, relief, anticipation, and ...

ERIC IS COMING HOME ON TUESDAY!

Oh shit! (Pardon me ladies.)

How is six months over so.... soon?  No, it wasn't quick by any means but...

What happened to the weight I was going to lose,
the novels I was going to write,
the house I was going to fix up,
the exercise I was going to do,
the recipes I was going to learn to make,
the list I was going to complete?!

ERIC IS COMING HOME ON TUESDAY!

I've got two days to get ready.

Today: handyman fixing sink and installing new thermostat while I put closet back together (Somehow my clothes took over the whole thing! How does that happen?) and clean, clean, clean.

Tomorrow: nail salon, waxing salon, hair salon.  ACK!!! It's Memorial Day.  (A quick side note: to all who served and died for our country: you deserve far more than a quick side note in a silly girls blog but THANK YOU for being so generous with your own lives, to allow us the freedom to spend our time in this amazing country, living and loving in a such a way that suits us individually because of the sacrifices you and your family made.  Again, THANK YOU.)

I think I'll stop here and get to work, with a heart full of gratitude to our lost men and women, and a love for one Eric Michael who is coming home on Tuesday. I am fully aware, how fortunate we are, because not everyone gets to come home.
