April

Wow, has it been this long since the last time I blogged. Where does this time go? But believe me not much has happened and you haven't really missed anything.

I had a week off work and we went to see both sets of parents (what a lovely kids we are :))). We first went to Belgrade where the weather was lovely. It was Shaun's and mine first run of the year in short and t-shirt. That made me really happy... the little things, eh. Then back to the UK and to Wales to see Shaun's family. That was a rather flying visit. Unfortunately I am now back at work. I always find it so hard going back to work after few days of holiday.

Shaun is deploying in the early hours of Saturday. I cannot believe that time for him to go is already here. I find the last couple of weeks always particularly hard - he is not gone yet but I am waiting for it to happen, so I can't really do anything properly. It is almost like waiting for him to go so that I can get back into my routine. But at the same time I do not want him to go. Ugh...

We have had a pretty bad weather here in the UK this week. Rain, wind, cold, I mean it is April for God's sake. Where is that sunshine. It is officially spring but it certainly doesn't seem like it. The good news is that on Monday I am going on a business trip to Italy for a whole of next week. I fly into Venice and out of Milan but I will also be having meetings in Treviso, Vicenza and Verona. Unfortunately it will mess up my training a little but at least I can go for a run.

We in the UK have a Friday (tomorrow) and Monday as bank holidays so the long weekend awaits. I wish I could say that some sunshine awaits too but there are some parts of the UK in snow right now. Oh Italy, I cannot wait.

Hey ADC - I know, I know - we've got just about 3 weeks until Nate leaves - so we're almost in the same boat. I too find myself thinking it would be better to have him gone, because at least then I can get into a routine. I hope the two of you have a great Friday together - even though I know its bittersweet. I'll be thinking of the two of you...

Hooray for a trip to Italy! Wow...if I could start off Nate's deployment with something like that... :) Hooray for the sun and lovely Italian wine! mmmmmmm.

hugs and love to you both!

Hoping you have a great Friday together and will be thinking of you guys and praying for Shaun's safety once he is deployed!

Italy sounds amazing! I hope you can take some pictures for those of us that have never been there! :)

Hope you enjoy your last days with Shaun before he deploys. I can't imagine what it's like but totally understand the wanting to get back to a routine.

Enjoy Italy. So jealous. I was there this time of year three years ago. That seems like so long ago.

I can only imaging how hard it is before he leaves! Have a great time in Italy - don't work too much :)
