Deployment Letter

Sunday, August 5th

Dear Jon,

So first of all I cannot believe it is August and Kaia is headed back to school tomorrow. In many ways this year as slipped right past me, but in others it has drug on and on. You being away from me has been the longest 4 months of my life I think. It is just still hard to go thru the day without my best friend. I have these moments when I am just sad that you aren’t here to help me carry in the groceries or silly stuff like that. Not that it sucks to carry in the groceries all by myself but the fact that we have built this life together and you are my best friend and I just want you to be here with me. To do the silly stupid stuff and the important family stuff too. We miss you and I know you are doing your best to get back to us as soon as you can but it still hurts to be away from you.

I hope you are enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon. It is crazy that you slept in until 8 something. I wouldn’t think your body would allow you to after being so programmed to wake up. I actually got to sleep until 9 which is the first in a long time. We are usually up before 8 to get to the gym. Tomorrow will seem like an early day getting Kaia up and ready for school. She is pretty excited I think and I am interested to get to know her teacher and stuff. I signed up to be the home room mom, there will be another one too so hopefully we can be more involved at the school this year. I think once you get home and things get back to normal for Kaia’s little world she will do really well in Kindergarten. We have already talked about the fact that I don’t want her to get sent to Mrs. Blair’s office so she better behave etc. I am sure it will happen at some point, I will just be happy if it happens LESS than last year.

Anyway, I am going to talk to you soon so I will go for now. I have to get all the thanks yous for Kaia’s birthday done and in the mail before it gets to be too late. I love you honey and I can’t wait until you are back home - where you belong!

Love, me
