see you soon

On Sunday, Nick and I made the dreaded trek to North Carolina to get him settled and checked into school. We left at 11am and checked into our hotel at 6pm. It's a 5 and a half hour drive..... If you do the math, yes we got lost. Twice.
It wasn't funny in the moment because we just wanted to get there, out of the car and off the road. But I do think it's funny that we are able to drive across the entire country without getting lost once, but when we drive south one state, we get lost twice. And it wasn't a "I'll make a quick uturn" kind of lost. It was a "I was pretty sure we were going the right way for 40 miles" kind of lost. But we made it, and Jacksonville isn't anything worth talking about. At least the part we saw.

Once we were settled, we went to the Texas Roadhouse for dinner. We had never been, and it didn't disappoint. We had the best BBQ food and a nice "last" night together for a while. 

Monday morning we got ready and moved nick's things into his room on base. He actually has a nicer room than I expected. Lots of space, a TV, and a shared kitchen with his neighbor. Nick checked into his school late morning and then we said our goodbyes. It was really hard for me to leave him in a new place. I felt guilty the entire way back to Virginia, but I know everything will be okay. Based on what we have been through and sacrificed already I know our relationship is already strong, but I know during these 3 months we will grow closer together as we work through new situations. 

And I am keeping busy this summer:
  • I am babysitting part time for two wonderful Marine families
  • I am taking classes online, and after 6 months I will be certified in wedding planning, wedding consulting, and event planning and design
  • I am getting things ready for our move in September
  • I am exercising, with all my free time
  • And of course, I have Lucy. She keeps me busy everyday :)
