sunny238 is now a SAHM!
I had another 43things account that was lost in oblivion (meaning I forgot the sign in info and created a new account), but back then I had this exact same situation, so here we go again, 3 years later. My husband is currently deployed for a year, so I’m setting my hug my husband goal again! It will stay up until he is officially back, even though he’ll be home for 2 weeks sometime in the middle, he’ll leave again and I’ll have to do the goal all over again, lol.
Thanks to this goal I was able to identify my old account and get into it to retrieve my previous entries for your viewing pleasure…here is how it went down last time:
Sounds easy doesn’t it 3 years ago
Or it sounds like I’m just being sweet…really this is gonna be a hard goal to make. Why you ask? Well, my husband is in Iraq right now, and I can’t hug him til he get’s home. We’re just gonna have to have a big huge 43things party when he gets home. So, when I complete this goal…I want all of you on my site here celebrating…we’re gonna pop some champaign and dance the night away…okay my hubby and I will do that our own way, but the rest of you are still welcome to party right here…wooooooooo!!!!
Check back, I’ll be giving updates!
Only about 3 months left until I can complete this goal!! Keep your fingers crossed nothing happens in the meantime.
Time is flying 3 years ago
It’s amazing how fast time is going now that we’re around the 3 month mark. I’ve got so much to do in this short period of time I think the day he is home and I’ll be able to hug him will be here in no time. I’m just now starting to get anxious about all of this! I can’t wait! The bedroom project needs to get done, the yard is getting worked on. When he gets home we’ll get a new vehicle so I’ve got to continue getting the bills paid down! This is so exciting!
Getting closer!!!!!! 3 years ago
Miss him 3 years ago
Now that it’s been about a year without him (it will be 15 months when he gets home) I’m really starting to miss him. Not that I didn’t miss him before, but earlier I didn’t let myself feel it. Now I really feel it in the pit of my stomach and it’s growing more everyday. I just can’t wait ‘til he’s home and in my arms!!!
Under 100!!! 3 years ago
Since my hubby is in Iraq, they won’t tell us exactly when they are coming home. Okay, they have no idea when, things can change in just a few minutes. So until they step foot off of Iraq (and being in the air doesn’t matter; turning around to go back mid flight has happened) it won’t be final. That is why I have the time frame for this challenge set the way I do. It will probably be 90 days or less until he is home, but I wanted to leave room for error. So, in my conservative estimate…we are finally at 99 days left!!! yay!!! 3 months baby!!!
OMG!! 3 years ago
2 months left!!! I’ll be taking a month off of work when he gets home…I like the idea of a month vacation. Too bad I won’t get paid for it :( But I’ll be with my hubby and that’s all that matters! 2 MONTHS!!!! :D
Wow! 3 years ago
I’ve been off the site for awhile due to a massive dose of life chaos! (Thanks Eris) But, good things come to those who wait! My hubby will be home in a week…he’s finally out of Iraq and on his way!!!! YAY!!!! Thank you so far to everyone who has cheered this goal. It is by far the most important goal I will probably ever have on this site, but who knows what the future brings :)
Anyway, thanks and blessings to you all for cheering me and supporting my while my hubby has been in such a dreadful (meaning the war) place. In one week I’ll be taking this goal off my list FOREVER!!! Thank the Gods for his safe return home.
Midnight 3 years ago
I talked to my husband at midnight last night…still in Kuwait…Argh! They should have been in the air about 6 hours prior to that but had a technical issue with the plane and couldn’t leave…isn’t that just what I want to hear right before he goes thousands of miles above the ocean :)
Anyway, he’s on his way home. I’m expecting it will be a Sunday or Monday ceremony now as it was planned as a Saturday or Sunday before they were delayed. The longest part of this whole thing will be the TB test they have to take when they get back. My hubby asked if I’d still love him if he had TB…what a silly question. I can’t wait til he’s home so I can lovingly smack him for silly questions again.
Don’t think that I’m abusive…it’s only a playful smack that defines our relationship. He thinks it’s cute and said he wanted me to accept his proposal with a slight smack on the cheek as if to say “silly, of course I’ll marry you.” Oh what a strange couple we make.
Back in the States!!! 3 years ago
He is officially back in the states. Their plane landed about 10:30 this morning, and now they just have a few days of outprocessing and he’ll be back home with me! This is getting so exciting!!!
Time??? 3 years ago
So much for my time today to get the finishing touches done on the house. I ran to the store for some much needed supplies and when I went to leave my car wouldn’t start!!! Ended up having to have the car towed and paid a whole bunch for a new fuel pump, which shouldn’t even have had to have been changed yet. Poo. My warrenty better cover it, I’m sending it in and the manager said if they give me grief to call him back. Just one more thing I’m glad happened prior to hubby getting home, he doesn’t need to know about this until we get the $600 check back in the mail. I don’t want to stress him out any more than he’s gonna be.
HE’S HOME!!!! 3 years ago
They rolled in about 1pm, and it didn’t take him long to find me.
