So this weekend my husband deployed for his fifth trip to the sandbox. This time it’s different as it’s a new place so I’ve got an extra feeling of worry. I know he’ll be fine. I know he’ll be safe. I know he’ll come home soon (though not soon enough!!!).
This is his first deployment where we’ve actually lived together and I haven’t been around family. It’s just me and the dog this time around. It’s different. It’s scary. But it’s the life I chose so I could be with the man I love.
Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon
She wore it in the springtime
In the merry month of May
And if you ask her why the heck she wore it
She wore it for her soldier who was far far away
Far away, far away
She wore it for her soldier
Who was far, far away
I have plenty of things to do this summer to help keep my mind occupied, so that will help some of the time. Other times – especially night time – it’s really difficult. I’m not sleeping well – I think I’ve gotten USED to his snoring! I never thought I’d say that.
Thankfully even though he’s gone this summer, our landlord is pretty awesome and is getting everything fixed that has happened with the house lately. I wish I could do a lot of the things that need to be done but I just haven’t learned how to yet. That will change once my husband’s back. I will make him teach meeeeeeee! *flail* 🙂
In costuming news, I’m making *some* progress with Rose Tyler. I’m still waiting on the fabric to come in (GRR), but I found a great base pair of sunglasses that I’ll be painting pink (they have the right shape!). I also have purchased a pair of Agent Provocateur Katy shoes – they’re the same height as the Jessica shoes – and I’ll be taking lots of progress pictures of my conversion of those to a more accurate pair. Can’t wait for everything to come in so I can GET TO WORK! Comicpalooza is in less than three weeks! AAAAAAAAAAAH!
So that’s what’s going on in my world as of late – I’m working on some things for TheGeekElite – I’ll be interviewing some of my favorite cosplayers soon for our “Cosplayer of the Day” featurette! Looking forward to it!
