Progress!

And you get to see it! Hello! Well, today is day two of our deployment, my DH left yesterday! And amazingly enough I am not torn up, I cried a little at the Airport when I hugged him good bye, then I broke down for about 5 minutes when I returned from the airport and then I got ready for work and on with life I went. And I have felt fine ever since! I'm sure it will hit me here and there every so often as the months wear on, but for now I'm good!
So, anyway, I thought I would share my progress on Mr. Snowman! I just have to fill in all that white up top and then do all the backstitch which you can see I've already started, and then he will be finished. I hope to have him done by the end of this week. Then I can focus on my letter C sampler, and get that finished up so I can move on to letter D!!! I also really want to try and get an entire page of the Abbey finished up this month! As well as moving onto the next snowman in this series. So there is LOTS to do!

Here's Mr. Snowman! He is really comin' along, I think if I continue to work on him everyday I should get him done by Sunday night before bed, what do you think? I'm SOOOO close! Well, with that said I am off to make more progress on him, and maybe work on letter C! Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

I know a little of what you were going through - my DH was sent to work in England for six weeks a while back and it was very hard. The key was keeping busy with things I enjoyed. Weekends were a little harder, so if you have friends or family around, try to make plans with them occasionally. Even if you go out by yourself and walk around a shopping mall or something, that will help.

Good luck, and good wishes for your husband to return safe and sound.

Good luck adjusting to his deployment. You're right, it probably will hit more at some times than others. Hopefully keeping busy as it sounds you are doing will help the time pass quicker.

Snowman is looking great, wonderful progress.

When is hubby back? Don't keep busy for busy sake! Do the things you want to do or enjoy the 'do nothing' times.
