I have to say I made it to my new home yesterday! So far I am loving it!

Sorry I have not posted in a few days. These last 4 days have been a blurry mixture of emotions.
For one, I was deeply saddened by the loss of Mr. Dogtags' Grandpa. I loved him like he was my own grandfather and he will be truly missed.
I felt so blessed and thankful that the Army allowed Mr. Dogtags to come home for the funeral service. At first we did not think they would grant him the time off because grandparents are not considered immediate family. They finally approved his funeral pass and I know it did Mr. Dogtags some good to be present for his grandfather's service. It was a beautiful service and celebration of his life.

His grandfather was a 20 year retired veteran of the US Airforce.
I was extremely happy that for the first time in months I got to fall asleep next to Mr. Dogtags. These last 3 nights have been the absolute most restful nights sleep that I have gotten since he left 5 months ago.
Elated that Mr. Dogtags and I could actually go out to dinner and a movie. I swear once you are separated from the one you love, the little things are the things that matter most.
Sad to say goodbye to Mr. Dogtags again when he left. Even though I plan on moving near him in just a few days saying goodbye to the one you love sucks, no matter how long you are going to be apart.
Scared but determined to have a safe drive across the country this week. I am nervous about the drive especially with a 50lb German Shepard in the car with me but know that I am capable. The veterinarian prescribed some sedatives so that she will be calm during the drive.
So that's been my week. As I said before it has been such a huge mixture of emotions. Hopefully things will calm down now and once I drive across the country I plan on sleeping as much as I want! lol.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
