The year is coming to an end…

Hello everybody!

It’s been a while since I wrote something on here. I just didn’t feel like it.

Either way, I hope you all had an awesome time with your families and friends, no matter if you celebrate christmas or something else or if you just had a few nice days off.

This year I spend christmas alone for the very first time. My husband, who’s still deployed, obviously couldn’t be here. My parents, grandma and brother spend christmas in New York. I sadly couldn’t go with them since I had to work.
And so I was left with the family dog. Who has already puked on my carpet 3 times since he’s here with me. Lovely!

But anyways, we decided that we’d celebrate once the hubby is finally back home from the deployment which will be some time in January.

And let me tell you something, christmas all by myself SUCKED!
I’m used to a busy christmas day with all the family members running around and preparing christmas dinner and trying to sneak into some presents.
But this year was really quiet. And so once again it showed me what really matters for christmas.
I know everyone loves presents, and I myself love giving gifts to other people and seeing them open them. But none of that matters when you’re all alone.
Family is the important thing at this time of the year.
I might be 21 but on that day, all I wanted was my mummy, daddy and grandma with me.
No one knows how many more christmases we will have with our loved ones and so we should cherish every wingle second we get to spend with them. Not just for the holidays but every single day.

Ok, so enough for this one.

Havean awesome time with your loved ones and I’ll see you soon!
… not literally, you know.


The most wonderful time of the year.

Hello everybody!

Thanksgiving is over. We’re officially on our way to christmas.
The most wonderful time of the year.

With December right in front of us, we’re also getting closer to the end of my husbands deployment.

He’s been gone for a few months now and I’m used to it. Sounds harsh, but yeah, I’m used to being alone.

Earlier today i put up the christmas tree. I was watching Greys Anatomy and in the back ground played ‘I’ll be home for christmas’.
That’s when it hit me.
I looked at the undecorated tree and I started crying.
For the first time in a while it got to me.
He won’t be home for christmas, he is still hoping for it, but I’m not. I’m being realistic and he’s more likely to stay away longer.

But then I thought of how it’s gonna be when we will have our belated christmas. I have all his birthday and chrostmas presents piled up, just waiting for him to unwrap them and I can’t wait to see his face.

Those things keep me going. Thoughts like that.
They say the last few weeks are the hardest, and I think they are right.
We have less then 2 months left and I think we’re right in those weeks now. Time is gonna go by super slow and it will feel like an eternity.
But I know we can do this.
We’ll make it through this.
And then I’ll be in his arms again and hold him close.

Have an amazing rest of the weekend everyone.
Talk to you later.
Guess you get it by now…
