Boo...

I just got off of the phone with Sam. Ugh.

Here I was comforting myself (and others) thinking that Sam was doing normal National Guard type stuff. Whenever they call the guard in it is to do things like transport fire fighters and evacuate people, nothing dangerous. Well, for the first time a private company has hired the military to do actual fire fighting stuff. Like dig ditches and build fire breaks and actually work near the fire and be in danger.

Ugh. Do I watch the news? Do I just ignore t.v. and love on my kid even more? I think that this is just the way it has to be when expecting a child in our household. Sam must be gone in a dangerous area. Maybe it keeps my mind off of other things.

It also looks like Sam will be gone the entire 30 days. That sucks because it means that right after he gets back from fire fighting, I get to go to camp for a week. That means it will be 6 weeks separated with only a weekend of seeing each other. So much for summer being a chance to reconnect!

But, we are still planning our anniversary mini-vaca to San Diego. We're taking the kid to Sea World. I figured he would enjoy that better than the zoo (more interactive).

Sigh. It's only been 4 days...

I'm sorry he will be gone for 30 days. As an Air Force wife I know all too well how hard it is to be separated! I hope you all enjoy your vacation to San Diego when everyone is together again!

Happy POW!

It sucks to be apart for so long, but you have a great vacation to look forward to! I may be biased, but San Diego is a pretty awesome place to visit.
