If I can make it through this week, I can make it through the rest of the deployment.
The big bosses are in town. I've got 11 appointments in the next three days. The topic of discussion for every single appointment- Mobile To Go with KRDO: Put your business in the palm of their hands. We've got to sell both mobile sponsorships this week or I don't know if we'll ever get them sold.
A decision on a huge proposal for March is set to come in this week (cross your fingers).
I've got book club tomorrow night (which I might skip to self-preserve) and Chorale Wednesday night.
Saturday is Banner Making Day. This should be actually be fun. You know...banners for Welcome Home Ceremonies...because this deployment is almost OVER. I've got all these awesome German candies from one of our wives who lives abroad to share with the families. Should be a yummy 3-hour event.
Saturday morning also promises a redeployment brief. I'm really hoping the info is good, because if for some reason it's at all unfavorable, I'm going to hear it from a hundred wives and family members and it's going to be all my fault.
Saturday night is a Battalion Resiliency Dinner. I really liked our battalion Valentine's Dinner this past week, with guest speakers from ACS, a spouse whose husband has PTSD, and a military wife of 21 years who's survived three deployments. I felt like I gained tons of coping strategies and got great reintegration advice. I also won the book the 5 Love Languages- I'm words of affirmation; what are you? And I won the raffle- a night in a suite at the Doubletree Hotel in downtown Colorado Springs with breakfast the next morning! Turns out I'm really lucky this deployment. I think this dinner promises more of the same, which is good.
I just need to make it to Monday. The 21st. The last week of February. Because if I can make it to then, I know I can make it to the end of the month and to March when my husband is coming home.
Time to put the game face on...I gotta keep calm and soldier on (for real).
