100 Days..

That is right folks.  We have less than 100 days ahead of us on this journey.  I obviously can't say where/when I will be coming home, but I am excited.

So many things to do!  Finish up deployment strong..stay safe, bring everyone home.  The things that not everyone always has at the forefront, but need to be. 

We just got done with another amazing port call, and all we could talk about is "home".  The sights, smells, who is waiting for us..all of it!

Will write more soon.  Busy/lazy Sunday ahead of me.  Must catch up on magazines that I have received in care packages...

Happy New Year!

Greetings from the great big sea!  Had the 2-7 watch last night, so I slept through the ringing in of the New Year.  Been busy out here, and trying not to fall into the mundane.  I have been reading, running, and just getting through the days.

We are 2/3rds of the way through our deployment, and I couldn't be happier.  I will be coming home soon, being reunited with my guy, my pup, and my family and friends. They have given me a great deal of support while on this deployment!  I couldn't have gotten this far without them.

I now have to go into planning mode.  New apt, new town, travels to and from my home town..Sweet Home Chicago!

Please continue to pray for my shipmates here, as well as throughout the Navy who are deployed during this holiday season.  May their homecomings be full of happiness and joy!
