Shipping out

Most people know Aaron is in the Navy Reserves. Recently he got orders that he has been reactivated for 6 months and will be reporting to Bahrain. He was in Bahrain once before about 6 years ago, so he is pretty familiar with the routine.

It stinks of course but there are a lot more ways to connect online than there was back then and I have lots of plans to keep me busy. Here's to hoping the time will go quickly and Aaron will come home safe and sound.

  2. I have to agree with @Kelly. I wish Aaron safe travels and that he will return home soon. I am happy to hear you will have loads to keep you busy. My significant other travels quite a lot internationally but he has never had to travel for such a large chunk of time. Good luck Aaron and stay safe. :o)

  7. I don't know how I missed this in all my years reading your blog, but I wish him very safe travels.

    I think you should plan a trip out here to LA for a long weekend or something, Jenny, while he's gone. You've got a billion blog pals (like ME), who'd be happy to entertain you!

  13. I've been following your blog for some time also and wish Aaron safe travels in his recent duty. As a fellow military wife, I understand deployment separation and the challenges it can bring. It can also bring opportunities for self-discovery and relationship strengthening with your significant other, so I encourage you to seek the opportunity in the challenge :) Best wishes to you both!

  14. I have been reading your blog for so long, I remember when Aaron returned from his last tour of duty.

    I wish him well and will keep him in my thoughts and prayers for a safe, speedy return to you and the pugs. (And Stewie, of course.)

    Many thanks Aaron for the service he is providing for the rest of us!!

  21. I am so thankful for Aaron's service, but man, I am sorry you have to be without him for six months! I'll be keeping you both in my thoughts.

    I'm a long time reader and admirer of your blog - I think you (and Aaron) are the coolest!

    p.s. Any plans to attend the BlogHer Handmade event in Minnesota in September? http://www.thecreativeconnectionevent.com/ I hope to go and would love to say hi.
