...it seems as though we always don't have enough of it.

Jared is heading to the Police Academy next Friday. That is really really sneaking up on me all of a sudden. :::breathes into paper bag:::

I am SO proud of him. He is doing a wonderful thing, and it is such a great opportunity for our family. But, it's going to be hard. It's going to be really, I don't know how hard, hard. I give major credit to Military Wives. I do not know how they do it. I am lucky enough that Jared will be home with Lincoln and me on the weekends. Military families do not have that luxury.

I will have plenty to keep me busy while he's away during the week. I have my sweet baby boy, my whole world, to help me get through it. I also plan on taking some trips to Rhode Island to spend some time with my parents and friends. Currently, I'm planning on taking weekly trips and spending two nights there per week. It's a 2 1/2 hour drive though, so we'll see.

Today is Jared's last day of work at his old job. We're going to enjoy this weekend as a family, and spend lots of time, the three of us, the rest of next week before he reports Friday morning.

I will have many distractions to help Lincoln and me get through these 22 weeks. Seriously, how did I get so lucky to have this sweet boy as my son.....

Jared is doing an amazing thing for our family. Lincoln and I are very proud of him, and we'll cherish our special time we get to spend with him before the Academy, & on our fun-filled family weekends :)


  1. Good Luck to you while your hubs is away. You have an adorable son that will help distract you, tho.


  2. That time will go faster than you know it, especially with your adorable little Lincoln to keep you busy.

  3. I've seen my husband through the state police academy. He had to live there for 6 months only coming home on weekends so if you need any advice, support, or someone to commiserate with feel free to e-mail me any time. I grabbed your button by the way.


Comments make me happy! I love to hear from my readers :)
