This week is stuffed full of errands, phone calls, and good-byes as Husband departs this week for half a year, so I'm afraid I don't have a lot to report on here. Truth is, it'll seem as though he's away for a short work trip for the first couple of weeks; the more emotional realization of our separation won't be felt til week three or so. Sounds strange, but I guess we've been on this path quite a few times, so it is what it is, you know? I promise I'll stop with the pity-party on here, but it's the most relevant event going on in my life, and I thought it'd be somewhat remiss if I didn't mention it. I'm fairly certain he'll be able to Skype with us, so finding the right pocket of time (with the significant time zone difference) will hopefully be the biggest challenge in future communication.
What else is going on? Aside from the to-dos mentioned above, we've been trying to maintain a normal routine. I really enjoyed watching Argo. We baked two loaves of banana bread and ate both of them in 2 days. I ordered this skirt for a spouses' function (don't even ask my how many events/fundraisers/dinners I go to for Husband's work...it's a career on its own). I think it'll go with a lot. I still haven't decided between this and this. Husband will hopefully be getting some really great news tomorrow morning. Will keep you apprised of it later. I think he packed his orange Mexican wedding shirt. Sigh.
