It Has Begun...

Today was the day. Hubby and I had to say our final goodbyes at 0930.

At about 4:30 Hubby and I woke up and layed in bed for about 30 more minutes just cuddling when we realized we needed to get up and get him ready and put some food in his stomach. We showered, double checked everything, and headed out the door. The whole time I was in a very numb state.
We get to the battery and it all starts to sink in. He gets his weapon, we load up his bags and we go to the training room and try to laugh and take some of the edge off. We took a few pictures and then he was called to get on the bus to take him to the motor pool.
I get in my friends car and I am desperatly looking for him when we arrive at the motor pool. We know there is only a few moments left.
I finally find him and the rest of the time we are together talking about R&R, babies, and things we will be doing to keep our sparks flying. I hold on to him, and we start swaying and singing "I'm Leaving On A Jetplane Dont Know When I'll Be Back Again" and then you hear those words...."Its Time for Your Final Goodbyes".....I wrap my arms around him, and kiss him and start crying. I tell him for the 50th time in the day how much I love him, and then he walks me to the door of the motorpool kisses me one more time and he tells me how much he loves me, and we will be just fine. As I turn my back with my friend we both burst into tears. It happened.
The 2nd deployment has started.
Right now I am pretty numb...I really wish I was alot farther in the deployment already. But I know it will be over before I know it. I can't wait to get my phone call or get to skype him! I am so proud of him!!!!
I love you so much Baby and I know you will be reading this, so just know I am always here, I will always be right here waiting for you. Your amazing. Keep your head high.
Heres a few photos from our last week and the day of the deployment, it has descriptions below it. I am only on my 8" screen and so I wont be blogging too much. I am picking up a friend tomorrow from the airport and then I am hoping I getting a phone call on Sunday or Monday. But I will be back in Utah on Tuesday so I will tell you all then. Until then I leave you with this....

Together forever and never apart,
Maybe in distance, but never in heart.
 This was our last big date night at Red Lobster

God bless you both! The deployment will fly by once you get over the very beginning, and he will be again back in your arms before you notice.
