waiting...

I can hardly wait until Stuntman is home, and has a few days/weeks of uninterrupted time with us. He has been gone so much in the last 3 years. I don’t recall the last birthday party that he was able to attend. It was a few years ago. His civilian job requires travel, and requires nights/ weeks away for training. Add to that the amount of training that he did with the Guard prior to actually deploying, and lets just say that he was rarely home during the last 3 years.

I don’t know how much time that will have here at home before he needs to report back to civilian work (I know I’ve read 90 days, but I’m unsure how much of that will be including a paycheck). When he does return to work, he’ll need to leave for a few weeks or a month or more for training to catch up on what has changed while he was gone.

I don’t want to think about that.

I just want him home.
