Today's the Day

Today's the day I halfway wish was never going to come. Gunnar will be on a plane tomorrow headed for Fort Sill OK. He is staying at a hotel tonight (silly rule they have) and then off he goes. We had a super busy weekend getting fully moved to my parents house. My dad and Gunnar's dad, Denny were AMAZING and we really couldn't have got it all done in 1 day without them. Gunnar's mom, Connie joined us as well Sunday and Monday. Gunnar had a lot of people that wanted to see him before he ships off. We did have a spur of the moment fun time Friday night when we went to see a Kenny Chesney concert with Jeff and Nikki. It was really excellent to get out and enjoy things as much as possible before our long summer apart. The concert was a blast!

I tried explaining to Gus that Daddy will be gone for a while but he just doesn't understand. It will be interesting to see how he reacts when he realizes that Daddy isn't going to be around. I know we are all going to be pretty darned sad for a long time.

So tonight we are going to have our very last date for a very long time. I'm not sure where we're going yet but I am going to do my very best to not be a cyring, sobbing mess through dinner. I'll let you know how it goes...


  1. Oh Liz, I can't even begin to imagine how hard this must be for all of you. I'm so proud of you guys for doing it though. I hope you guys have a magical last night!

  2. Our thoughts are with both of you...if there is anything we can do, please don't hesitate to ask. Our home is always open to help you get through the summer!

  3. Thanks Elaine! I think I just might have to take you up on that.

    Bekah - I really appreciate the support. It means so much to me.
