The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow!

Man, is it just me or has the past few days been rough ones? Work is long, the evenings are boring and it just feels like the end of the year is staring me in the face. 

Thank you so much for your nice words on my quilt. I sent the person I was making it for pictures. Yeah...I don't think they liked it too much. Oh well, I think it's fabulous!

Lola, asked what am I going to do now to occupy my time since the quilt is done. That would be continue knitting the blanket I was working on. I've probably got at least another week of work to do on that. So at least that's something to keep time moving.

I still have about 9 weeks!! We are definitely feeling the burnout though. Poor Z said that all of the guys are starting to get excited about coming home but that it is making it worse because they still have about 2 more months. Yucky.

First of all, the quilt is freaking awesome. Husband was just asking me the other day to make one out of his old tshirts and I don't have a sewing machine, so he said "just do it by hand" and i was like "there is NO way!" but you have proved me wrong!! My new idol! :)

Also, I know the time seems like forever! November will be here before you know it!

I think your quilt is beautiful.

For my Matt and I, the end of our days apart has been a long time coming. The longest I have ever been with him was six weeks before he went to Iraq. I had to take a leave of absence from work and get a transfer from my crap job to another crap job location in Seattle.

Keep your head up and know that its only a few more months.

I was thinking about that too. It's got to suck feeling out of step. Lately I've seen more blogs of people about to deploy. Ok, maybe one. But there's got to be more, because people are leaving to take the place of people coming home. Remembering how hard it was at the very beginning might help make this point easier.

I wouldn't worry too much about his quilt feedback, if he got really into it, commenting on the fabric layout and the way you coordinated, we might have to start worrying! haha

dont worry about him not saying much about the quilt. I get that a lot too with things I make. I guess husbands/boyfriends are just not too impressed with home made things....argh.

I have a tough time seeing other soldiers come home! When this would happen right after kevin left I had no problem. I would just remind myself that it'll be my turn soon enough. But the last month or two when I've seen "welcome home" signs and other things I just get pissy!!! "WHAT ABOUT ME"!!! (insert feet stomping here) so it goes around... and just remind yourself that it'll be your turn soon enough girlie.

I don't think quilts are really a guy thing per se. Although I'm sure if he actually used it, he would enjoy having it.

Ok... been a slacker lately and now I'm catching up!

Love the quilt!! A guy won't give you more than a "like" or something similar. don't take offense!

The post about smoking and dipping. Luckily, the hubby doesn't do either! But you know once Matt comes home he'll probably stop. I'm sure it's more just something to do while he's deployed.

November will be here before you know it!! Stay stong.

I thought the quilt was GREAT!!! I am sure he likes it!!! He will definitely love it when he gets to snuggle under it with you!!! :) I commend you SO much for being so strong while he is gone. You are an amazing woman for persevering through it! He will be home before you know it!!!
