He's coming home- mixed emotions!!

I can't believe it but hubby will be coming home in the next few weeks. It seems so surreal. Like it is not true. I think about how long he has been gone and wow it's time for him to come home.

I am of course BEYOND excited! Finally another parent to help out. He can fix all those things on the house that have been neglected. Someone to watch TV with at night. Just to be able to get a hug is going to be phenomenal.

Then I am worried because I didn't accomplish everything that I thought I would while he was gone. Plus- the kids and I have really become closer and I am slowly figuring out my teen son. My son and husband are so alike it is amazing. I am worried about them fighting and butting heads since they are both so stubborn.

I have been taking care of everything and now I am not going to be the sole decision maker. Time to share the responsibilities.

I also know that all my worries need to not be worries. LOL  Silly emotions.

Congratulations! You have survived deployment! =) I am so glad your soldier is almost home. I will keep you and your family in my prayers, I know post-deployment can be a struggle as the adjustments need to be figured out. I am excited for you!

So exciting to know this deployment is almost over! Reintegration is definitely the hardest part for everyone. Try not to sweat the small stuff and just enjoy the reunion! You have so much strength--you can do anything! Of course, I am always here for you to vent to any time! Just call or Facebook me!

I'm glad to hear he's coming home! I had very mixed emotions when my husband got home from Korea. We'd been in a long distance the entire relationship prior to that.

I was just blogging around tonight and found your blog. I am so glad your hubby is coming home safely. Don't over think things, just enjoy the fact you are all together again. Instead of thinking of it as now not being the sole decision maker, just put a different spin on things. Now you are only 50% to blame for any bad decisions instead of completly to blame. As far as butting heads well that would have happened anyway. And if Dad wasn't there he would have eventually starting butting your head. I have two grown boys. Loved every minute of having them, but raising them was no walk in the park. But love takes you the distance. Enjoy your family being back together, and thank you for letting me visit.
