A Light at the End of the Tunnel?

It is now less than a month until Bryan changes command and he begins to make his way back to the US! I am so excited for him to be back but I'm probably even more excited for Marlie to be reunited with her daddy! I try not to think about exactly how many days are left until his return because after 7 years in the Army and 3 deployments, I know that things change constantly.
I have also learned that a deployment will challenge you until the very end. The past few days have been a perfect example. I don't usually have allergy problems, but I started feeling bad on Friday. My symptoms were definitely allergy-ish and didn't improve over the weekend.
I had planned a Stella & Dot trunk show at my house for Monday morning and had made arrangements for someone to clean my house on Sunday afternoon. Since I wasn't feeling good, I was so glad I had asked her to come. Well, around lunch time on Sunday she told me that she wouldn't be coming because she was painting her house! I was more than a little disappointed and spent the rest of the evening trying to get my house ready when I really just wanted to lay down and sleep!
I was so glad when the trunk show and day were over yesterday. The good times were not yet over though! As I was getting ready for bed, Marlie began screaming. I ran into her room and found her throwing up all over herself and her bed. After getting her calmed down and changing her bedding, I was finally able to get a little bit of rest myself.
Today Marlie has been tired but hasn't gotten sick anymore. I am finally starting to feel a little better too. Hopefully we have dealt with enough negative things over the past few days and the last few weeks of this deployment will be good ones.

Hope you both get to feeling better soon and I loved seeing you and M on Coming Home the other night.

I am so sorry I didn't make it to the show. :( I'm looking through the site to find something to order though... I need a new necklace now that my favorite one broke.
Hope you're feeling much better and YAY that Brian will be home soon!
