We're anxiously awaiting the weekend - which will be Andy's first days off since returning from Iraq.
I'm sure that everyone assumes that returning soldiers are immediately off to spend time with their families, but that is not the case.
He got back on Sunday and was back in to work on Monday. He hasn't been working full days or anything, but he has to go in daily for formations, medical and dental screening, meetings, and various other in-processing stuff.
In short, we haven't seen him much. Between work and catching up on much-needed sleep, we haven't gotten to spend much time together yet.
It's hard to have him here, but not have him all to ourselves yet. :)
Our time will come though. He'll be on leave in a couple of weeks and then we'll be able to have our much-needed family time.
Until then, I'm making the kids do schoolwork while he's gone every day. It hasn't been very organized or very fun, but I'm trying to be productive.
