Not that I'm counting down or anything, but we are just about to the six week point. That is, six weeks until my hubby comes home for four wonderful weeks. We passed the one year point last week, and it's been six months since his last leave time. That's really. freaking. long. Today, through our aggravatingly garbled skype chat, he said that the paperwork is official and he will be home over Christmas...!! For FOUR weeks. That is very very good news people.
