One Week!!!!!

So I bought milk today. The same two jugs I buy every week. A gallon of vitamin D for Avery and a gallon of skim for AK. And I almost started crying when I saw that the expiration date is AFTER Mike will be home. My husband will be drinking THIS milk! And then I went on to throw way more stuff in that I didn't need just because Mike would be there to eat it. I will be making him a sandwich on THIS bread and he will be pouring cereal from THIS box!! What a great boost to my day! I say to myself all the time, "this is the last time I will --- before Mike gets home. Whether it's taking out the trash, writing a check or going to buy milk, it feels so good to keep counting down this way. I can't wait to say, "this is the last time I'll leave the driveway before he gets home." Now that will be awesome. :)

Only about a week left! Please continue to pray for his safe return. I received a family readiness message today talking about some weather issues as they are traveling back across the Atlantic. I'm praying they aren't delayed!
