I'm SO excited for this weekend... hubby and I got a call last week saying as long as we could fill in the paperwork by this past Monday we could attend the marriage retreat due to a cancellation. I feel bad that someone cancelled, but this is coming at such a perfect time... with my anxiety issues, the crazy training hours he's been working, upcoming time in the field, and ultimately the looming deployment.
I need this.
We need this.
The best part is... because it's military sponsored and funded my husband gets a half day on Friday so we can arrive there on time for the opening registration and dinner. I miss hanging out with him... he's had the craziest hours, so even though he's here... he's really not. I see his muddy boots, clean his uniforms, and make sure there is food in the pantry/fridge so he can eat when he needs too. But seeing his face hasn't really been happening unless I glance over and his head happens to be on the pillow next to mine. Take Tuesday for example, he woke up at 3:45am, started work at 4:30am and didn't get home until 1:15am (Wednesday), then turned around and was right back at work on Wednesday at 6:30am.
*If your husband is in the Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard be sure to check out your MWR/MCCS for information on CREDO... all retreats are free, there are marriage and personal enrichment classes depending on the month and availability. This is not a sponsored post, I am just excited we get to attend.
I have everything set-up for my 25th Birthday Giveaway Palooza. Please check in on Sunday for the overview of the entire giveaway week. I'll have to talk about the retreat the following week because the giveaway is going to completely take over the blog... I really hope you'll visit everyday to see the great prizes you can win!
