Random Thoughts

I am really looking forward to this summer. Rhett and I get to spend it together with our 2 kids(even though he's a little late getting off the ship). I have really missed him this past time he's been out. He was home this last time for 9 months because of the death of his dad and Ike. That is the longest we have been together since he graduated in 2001. It was a big adjustment to be together for that long and for most of you, that seems silly, but it was really weird for him to be here that long. He's been gone for almost 3 months and I miss having him around...especially now that I am at home with both kids and trying to stay afloat and be a single mom and take care of all the other chores that come with owning animals and a house, etc. The hardest part about him being gone right now is Libby. She's now at the age where she realizes he has been gone for a while and even though she isn't asking for him everyday like she first was, she will break down and start crying at any given moment. That breaks my heart because I have to be strong, but sometimes I do cry with her. She is a daddy's girl and he is a Libby's daddy. At least right now Caleb doesn't understand. I just hope he knows who he is when Rhett's around (they haven't seen eachother since Caleb was 2 months old). There are stages where Libby didn't know who Rhett was and freaked out whenever he came home and clung to me even more. I can't wait to be a family of FOUR again!!!


  1. Great blog!! I even teared up. I know it's so hard for you and having him away but I'm so excited that he gets to come home soon and you'll get to spend the summer with each other!!! : )

  2. That is definitely something that would be hard for me. I do enjoy my days alone when Chris goes hiking, but then again I don't have friends to hang out with very often here so I get a little bored.
