I feel like I am in need of a vacation. Not an itinerary laden vacation, but one of those vacations where you go on to get away from schedules, just to relax and let whatever happens, happen. Eric and I were planning on a little weekend trip before he left for training but unfortunately it took us longer to move out of our house than we thought and time flew by. ( as well as our money ) Now he only has a week left until he leaves, and school and family commitments will prevent us from a goodbye trip. I can’t believe he will be gone for five months.
The day he has to leave is now only a week away and it is becoming more and more real to me. He likes to say “it’s only 5 months”, but 5 months is nearly half a year. A lot of things happen in 5 months and according to Google 5 months = 152.184249 days. A lot of things go on in 152 days. The average heart will beat 15759360 times in 5 months, and we take about 3040000 breaths. That is 3040000 breaths that will go uninterrupted by a kiss, laughter, conversation, or the burning sensation his scent brings to my nostrils when he forgets his deodorant. I’m going to miss him…and it will be 5 months until we get to take awesome pictures like these together…Christmas card worthy?
