Just like that, the winds change, the tide shifts and things finally start to fall into place. I haven’t shared a lot of all that has gone wrong but since he left but it has just felt like one thing after then next. No matter how quickly I fixed them, something was always, constantly, unexpectedly going wrong. Sometimes it would just be one huge thing and other times it would be a dozen little things, but it always felt like it was something. Exhausted, I finally had come to terms with thats just how this deployment would be.
Well, just when I accepted it, thats when everything changed. Isn’t that how it always goes? After countless repairs and months of arguing with the warranty company, they finally deemed my washer unrepairable AND reimbursed me for a new washer! 🙌🏼 Taxes got filed. Billing issues got resolved. Issues with car insurance got figured out. The old washer is gone and the washer got delivered and installed.
Since the day he left, it has felt like an uphill battle to keep the house and our affairs in order. The first half of this deployment was a struggle for countless reason but I am so excited and relieved to say we are finally past the halfway point (woot woot). I am optimistic that the second half will be better than the first… but if it isn’t, at least I know I can make it because we’ve already made it through the first half.
Not sure how long it will stay like this but one thing is for sure, I am going to enjoy it while I can.
