Lazy Days…

Good afternoon,

It has been 18 glorious days since Ryan arrived home from the desert…  It feels like only yesterday and it feels like months all at the same time.

He is, for the most part, readjusted to being here rather than there and it’s almost odd how easily we have readjusted to each other.  It used to take weeks and even months to get used to being with each other again but this time it feels as though he’s never left! 

He goes back to work at the end of this week, after two weeks of reintegration leave.  The first week he was home he had to in process and go to some training that “couldn’t” wait.   He’s on base today getting all of the details ironed out and taking care of some last minute business, which is why I’m here right now.   I hope you will forgive me for being so absent, but I simply could not bring myself to spend the time I could be with him on the computer. 

Not that we’ve accomplished anything at all…  We had plans.  I was going to take him to see some of the sights I visited with company in his absence.  We were going to catch up on projects that we had put off for a long time.  We were going to ride the bike and enjoy the sun.  We were going to go on a picnic.

In reality we have watched many movies, played a ton of xBox (Go two player Lego Indiana Jones!), and read three books out loud to each other.  It’s been WONDERFUL!

Of course, the house is a disaster, nothing has gotten done, we both feel like big lazy slugs, and we’re wasting the little sunshine that this part of the world can boast… but neither of us can seem to gather enough energy together to feel sorry about it…  We’re just happy to be together again!

As a result of having done nothing worth talking about, there are also no pictures to share… well there are a couple.

One night this past weekend we went out to walk the dogs at dark and found a gorgeous moon rise. 


I grabbed my camera and snagged a few pictures!  They aren’t great because I still haven’t mastered the right settings for this kind of picture but it’s better than anything my old picture could have captured.


Isn’t the color amazing?


There we are with it over our heads!


Well, that’s pretty much it!  I really don’t have anything to say at all… I’ve been trying to keep up with everyone from the shadows but haven’t had time to email or comment so I’ll try to catch up soon!  Next week life should go back to normal for us and I’ll be around more then. 

Until then, Auf Wiedersehen!
