As I talked to my friend, Mere, this past week she recalled all of the upcoming events that would shorten the interminable wait that seems to loom before giving birth; she is seven months pregnant. We are both on the same deadline--her Baby Rowen and my Tim both arrive in mid October (hopefully!). It made me think of all the "upcomings" on my calendar to look forward to, and reminded me that as each event passes we're that much closer to Tim's homecoming. If I think about his return being 3-4 months away, or 90-120 days, it just seems TOO far! But if I can think about it as in "it's only 6 events away" than it seems much more tolerable. So Tim will be home after:
July 25-Our 4th Anniversary
July 27- Mini Ashcraft Reunion
Aug 5-Tim's Birthday
Aug 8-11- Austin Trip for Vanessa's Shower
Aug 16-17-Visit Mandy in PHX
Aug 20ish-Call Ft. Bliss to Request Housing or Search for Off-Post Housing
Sep 20ish-Move back to Ft. Bliss and prepare for Tim's homecoming
...much better that way!
