Dedicating a whole week to my midterms seemed like a good idea. And I suppose it is: in the long run. But not having a schedule, spending long stretches of time studying, is not conducive to making it through a deployment day in one relatively sane piece.

It’s just too much time to think. To ponder exactly how your day would look different with HIM in it. It’s a little sad, I know. But I just can’t help myself. This is exactly why I keep busy, why I stick to a schedule, and why I try and only focus on today.

So I am looking forward to a busy, fun, get-out-of-the-house weekend. I’m looking forward to spending time with friends and experiencing new things. I’m looking forward to plain ol’ amazing busyness!

And maybe a little homecoming dreamin’!
