There is no way to break this news gracefully. Some of you may remember my post from this summer called "The Fear". Well, the fear is becoming a reality. The Man is being deployed to Afghanistan soon. I have known for months that it was coming. Actually I have known for almost a year. It is one of those things I ignored. It was easier to live with my head in the sand. Now, the deployment is staring me straight in the face and I have to pay attention.
We will have Christmas as a family and then all bets are off. Don't worry about me and the girls, we'll be fine. Just please keep my husband in your prayers. He will be on an AF base, but still, it is like the wild wild west over there.
