Today, Chuck left for his second deployment to Afghanistan. As much as saying goodbye sucks, I am surprisingly okay (for now.)

I will have bad days, but I have this odd sense of relief to have it started and the countdown underway, even if our future remains a bit uncertain. I never did have the freak out/meltdown that everyone predicts (though that USO/Jeep commercial during the Superbowl brought me very close), but his deployment has been a long time in coming. I think I am just very prepared…

Still, the house is very quiet and empty, and will be that way for quite a while. I’m making myself a giant pot of Kraft mac n’ cheese with hotdogs – an all time favorite – to keep myself full and spoiled. 🙂

And in the meantime… boy, will I miss him!!
