Today, I dropped the hubster off at work and I won’t see him again for a while. We don’t know yet when he’ll get to take his mid-tour leave but we’re hoping it will be around July-August. After that, he won’t be back until January 2012.
It was a hard morning. He woke up, fed Piglet, and got him dressed one last time. As I left to bring Piglet to his sitter’s house, I heard him choke up a little. It was sad but I decided that today, I am determined not to cry.
Yes. It is sad that he is gone. And yes, it’s going to be hard. And long. And lonely. But I do not want to just sit around at work, or at home, and cry and be sad. I have to be strong and brave because it’s not just me. I’ve got to take care of Piglet too. He will be a good distraction I think.
Work for me is almost done. I have 50 working days left. Now, those days span over almost 3 months so, it’s still a ways a way BUT thinking “ooh, only 49 days left….” makes my brain happy.
Since the hubster is gone, I should probably get back on track with Weight Watchers. He came home for about 10 days after training and we kind of were sloppy. He wanted to eat at different restaurants and have me cook his favorite foods since it would be a long time before he eats them again so I didn’t worry about limiting myself. Because of that, I gained back 2 pounds but oh well. I had fun with my husband during his last week in America.
Guess I’ll get back on the treadclimber tomorrow.
