Christmas has always been my favorite time of year.
I’m trying really hard to be happy about it this year…but I’m struggling.
I would like to say that deployment irrevocably SUCKS.
We are in our last 3 months or so of it, but now time is literally passing at a snail’s pace. Everyone tends to say that they wish that they could have more than 24 hours in a day to do things….I swear that I DO…I think that somehow I’m in a weird time-space continuum and have 30 hours in a day.
Except I’m not being productive with those extra 6 hours. Instead I look at all of the X’s on the calendar and think “get home already.”
Deployment is such an emotional rollercoaster. Well-meaning people say well-meaning things, but if they haven’t experienced a deployment first-hand, there is no way that they can truly understand.
Yes, we’ll get through this…because we have no choice…but it’s not fun.
I think I’ll go watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas…seems appropriate.
