How do you spend days?

Well, here we are in the last days before DH goes off overseas. He flies out on January 1st. I find myself pulling inward. I just want to spend these last few days with my family close, giving us as much time together as we can. I don't want to go much further than our home. His TDY is only 120 days, for which I am very thankful, but it is still hard to think about him going to Iraq. I know that other military families are looking at 6, 12, 18 months apart so I don't want to fuss about 4 months. I'm glad that he will be home in time for the spring planting. I'll have to do the tilling myself, but he'll get to enjoy the planting and all that goes with tending the early garden. Can't wait to pick him up from the airport in May!

Family, Love and Peace
