1. Date nights. Because really, it would be incredibly depressing for someone to go out to dinner and have a glass of wine or a beer by themselves. But as part of a couple? Totally fun!
4. Bickering about sports teams. We don't cheer for the same football teams, and as much as it gets under my skin at times, watching a game with him sure beats watching it by myself.
Making this list just makes me really want 2013 to arrive. Is it bad to wish away over a year of your life? Rhetorical question there, of course it is. And to all the ladies out there that have survived a deployment: you are awesome, and I wish I was like you, already on the other side of it!
But I can't complain TOO much, as I know I will have an awesome support system! My mom has already offered to visit whenever I want, and about three different families of students I have taught have offered to help me out with whatever I need while Dustin is deployed. I would just rather he not leave, you know? Sigh.
