Anxious excited, definitely!

Well... by this time tomorrow I will be well on my way to Tennessee!

I have to work all day, so I didn't figure I would have time to post... and I couldn't leave my blog just hanging! :) So you're all getting an early post about the trip!

As my title suggests, I'm a little bit anxious. I just want to make sure I get there safely... but also, that once I get there, things between Sgt. and I will go smoothly. I don't expect everything to be candlelight and roses; the whole point of this vacation is to get to spend some time together in a NORMAL setting. With everyday life stresses and all the little things you miss when someone isn't there. Without rushing to visit people during R&R and without the hurry and newness of redeployment... just school, and work, and Grey's Anatomy on Thursdays, and taco's for dinner... normal things. I was beginning to get a little worried that he wasn't exactly looking forward to the trip. Call it over analyzing... I know he's been stressed but it wasn't doing much for my ego not hearing an "I can't wait till you get here." - However, I know he loves me, and I know he's excited to have me there (and yesterday a few of those "I miss you's" did peek out ;) ) and it's proved by the enormous help he's been trying to get me to not stress about things in order to get there. Anyway, just hoping it goes well :) Wish us luck!

Now on to the excited... any other explanation necessary?? I CAN. NOT. WAIT. It might all be the unknown and it might all be fairly new to us... but that is part of the reason I'm so looking forward to the next four weeks! Hopefully, I will be able to get a good nights sleep tonight for the long drive tomorrow. Have a feeling though that it will be tough to fall asleep :) (I promised the man I would at LEAST get in 4 - 5 hours... I think he may give himself an ulcer by the time this trip is over, worrying so much).

So... finally got packed last night. Have a lot of last minute things to do this morning before work. Will work all day... until late tonight and then sleep and hit the road! Here's to hoping I remember to shave my legs... I'm running around so much I actually put it on my to-do list.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend! "See" ya from the Volunteer State!

** Can anyone tell me what movie my post title is from??



I think the quote is from Parent Trap.

Eric S.

Good luck, be safe, and have a grand time.


I was just turned on to your blog, but I love it! I hope you have an amazing trip! I'm sure Sgt is so excited he forgot to tell ya! Can't wait to read more of your adventures!


I am the *worst* at movie quotes, so I don't even have a guess.

Have a great time in Tennessee, and don't analyze, just enjoy the moment! :-D
