So this is my late, OMG it's October post. This is the month I've been dreading, because at some point during the next month or so my husband will be leaving for deployment. Do we know when, No... We just know he's leaving. We don't even know if it's going to be a year deployment or 9 month deployment. We won't know until they are coming home. E-mails & phone calls went out in the last 24 hours with the official army announcement of "you are deploying in _____ time frame", tomorrow we MIGHT get dates, but who knows..
During this deployment, he's missing the usual- birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc. But he's missing one of the most important events--- his child's birth, his first one. They said he will get Emergency Leave after the baby is born, but in reality I'm not holding my breath.
Alaska sucks for October here's a few reasons why
1) They don't have pumpkin patches around
2) If you do buy pumpkins (at the store) you can't carve them and put them on your porch.. Why you ask, because the bears will be attracted to them and eat them.
3) It's already 43* outside, snow is coming within in next 2 weeks, meaning fall lasted all of 3 weeks.
Why is Alaska awesome in october??
I'll let you know when I find the answer...
Oh and on the 7th we have the ball to go to, so I had to find a dress that would "grow" with me incase I blew up, which I didn't.. to find out that someone in the same troop as my husband will be wearing the exact dress.. So I just borrowed a friends dress and wasted $120.
I'm also getting a hair cut on the 7th, Where do you ask... Well, where any other person in Alaska would get their hair cut, the same place as Sarah Palin.. (I still haven't seen Russia, maybe I just need better glasses)
Hoping this month goes by slow, and I get to cherish the time with my husband. We did get to finish the furniture in the baby's room.
We find out Oct 20 if it's a girl or a boy!!
We went out to the Alaska SeaLife Center today, and it wasn't exciting. Just a big let down, but on the way home we did hit snow.
