Christmas list

Here is my Christmas list:

*bread machine


*gift certs to Target and Seams like Home (quilt store)

*chick flicks

*sewing table


*nice church shoes

*pretty ring for my right hand (cheap)

*There's a few more but I can't remember them all.

I would give them all back, give them to charity, sell them, etc......if I could have Chris home.

For reasons I can't post about the military, my husband will probably not be able to be home with us this Christmas.

This is the first year Bee can open his presents. It's the first year he'll be able to laugh and smile at what he got.

We will just move Christmas to a different day....when Chris can be here. My mom leaves the morning of the 27th. Fingers crossed, prayers said, that he will be here before that.

I realize it's just a day. I know that Jesus wasn't even born close to December. But it's just Christmas. You are suppose to be with your family.

I should be trying to look on the bright side like military wives' are suppose but I can't right now. I'm just going to go cry and pout around. I'll let you know what happens.

I truly hope your Christmas' are wonderful. Be grateful to be around people you love, like or even just get along with. I love ya all.

Don't worry about me. I have my mommy here! :)

Oh, so sorry. We've had to spend one Christmas apart with hubs being deployed. Next year he will be gone during Christmas and I am not looking forward to it.

I hope it helps knowing I understand. That's the hard part for me is that we have friends non military and they don't get it.

I'll keep my fingers crossed he's home soon. {{{HUGS}}}

So glad your mom is there---and I'll pray that your husband gets there before she leaves.
And that you get your bread maker as no woman should ever have to live without one of those.
