We are almost to the halfway point of this deployment. Yay! But also Boo! I am reaching that point where I no longer just miss Chris, but I feel like a whole entire piece of me is missing. I lay in bed and wonder when it will be full again and when I wake up on the weekends I miss our morning cuddles as a family. It's been 3 months since I've had that and it'll be 4 more before I have it again. Typing it out like that makes me think of running a race...well, walking it actually, cause we all know I don't run. We're too far in to give up and just head to Denny's for breakfast, but the finish line is just so far away that I wanna go sit on that wall over there and wait for a ride.
To say that I miss Chris is so inadequate, but I cannot formulate the words to express just how deeply it goes. I am at the point where I'm gonna have to have an ugly cry before I can get better, but the tears just aren't falling hard enough. I know my other military friends know how I feel.
I have a ton of wonderful things in my life right now, fun things, exciting things, fabulous things. But I can't enjoy them completely until I have the ugly cry. I feel blah. Despite a huge announcement that is coming on Friday, a trip home in July, having family living locally for the first time our entire marriage, beautiful summer weather, a sweet little girl, and so many other things I can't even name them all, yet here I sit on my wall.
I guess I'm gonna have to go sit in his car, look at pictures, and listen to his music so that I can get off this stinking wall and finish our race.
