Mental Health/ Care Packages

Ok, well today I decided to take a Mental Health Day from work. During this deployment so far, I have not taken any time off except for when Hubby was home & if the Dr. has been out. So, today (well actually yesterday) I decided I needed a day from work. I needed a day to clear my head, have some alone time, & just do what I wanted. I did just that. I slept in this morning, got up & headed out to print some pictures off to send to the hubby, came back home, talked to hubby, ate some lunch, sat outside & read, took a nap, finished up hubby's Halloween care package & took it to the post office to be sent out, came back sat outside some more & read, and now I'm catching up on blog world & facebook & getting ready to go enjoy some shows on TV & who knows what else is in store for today. These last few months are starting to stress me & the hubs out. I hate that it is, but we are so anxious for this deployment to be over. Hubby has been putting up with a lot lately & to top it off he's now sick. Poor thing! I feel bad for him, but we both just have to push through just a little longer. He finally was able to get some meds today & hopefully he will start feeling better soon. He was able to take today easy as well & we enjoyed just being able to talk to each other without a time frame (he normally calls me on my lunch break during the work week). Anyways, to help cheer him up & hopefully make him feel better, I let him know he would be getting a little something something in the mail shortly:) So, here's a preview of his Halloween package:

Nice care package. I put those same stickers on my Fiances box. Did you get them at Target?

Awesome! Good for you! I'm so glad you took a day for yourself! We all need that once in a while. I hope your hubby gets better soon! I hate when my hubby gets sick out there because I usually take care of him. Super cute care package by the way. Love it! <3

I tried to find your email address to answer your question!

So the driving thing. When I turned 16 I got my permit, did drivers ed. and two driving lessons. I wasn't a fan....at all. I think I'm just such a nervous person that being in control of a car scares the shit out of me. In Boston its so much easier to not have a license, theres public transportation everywhere. But down here...it's tough. I think it might be my new years resolution. Maybe lol
