Reflection 1

A personal reflection on the separation caused by military training and deployment from the perspective of an Air Force wife.

So it's been a few weeks since I've written on here which, thankfully, is due to how busy life has been lately.  Like I said on my last post school has restarted for both my daughter and I so it's been a zoo around here.  Couple that with my endless buying and sending of care packages to Aaron and it makes one busy Nicole.
I have to say, though, that despite how busy I am I still can help but think about Aaron every waking minute of my day.  I just miss him so much, it helps though that we can talk and skype often enough but still, nothing beats having him right here by our side.  I'm really glad it's September, though, I feel like too much went on in August that I just needed the month to change so I can feel these days tick off of the calendar.  I'm extremely thankful that my husband calls as much as he does, it brings some normalcy to this situation because he would do that when he was in his regular squadron.  On another note, I went to the craft store on base last Friday and I spent around $30 on what amounted to be a bunch of paper and cutouts, LOL!!!  Fall being my favorite time of year and it seems like our daughter's as well, I wanted to make it extra special this year since Aaron isn't with us at the moment so I decided to buy a bunch of Fall and Halloween inspired papers and cutouts so we can decorate and send some crafts to Aaron and my parents and possibly his mother as well.  We made collages and bookmarks so it was a pretty fun bonding experience for the both of us.  Anyhow, it's getting late and I have a full day ahead so until next time...
