    Cloud 9 It was one of the best weekends we've ever had!

    Advertisements
    This weekend was absolutely amazing! As y'all know DH has PTSD, so there are major mood swings and he generally doesnt like to be around large crowds because it makes him extremely anxious and paranoid. But this weekend proved that he is making huge strides at getting better and managing his PTSD.

    I had 5 days off this weekend because we were supposed to go to the ball on Thursday. Well come Thursday afternoon DH doesn't want to get up and get ready and instead is kinda being a jerk about it. So I get upset. Well then he finally sits down with me and tells me that he feels bad because he knows how excited I am about going but that he really doesnt want to go because none of the guys he actually gets along with are going. So we'd be stuck sitting with his LT who he most definitely does not get along with. He tells me that if I really want to go we will but that he knows he wont have a good time and doesnt think I'll have as much fun as he wants me too. So I tell him that I would rather us doing something together that we would both enjoy and spend our time together having fun instead of him miserable at the ball.

    So instead ....he starts planning a great weekend for us because he wants to make up for not taking me to the ball.

    Soooo .....thursday night we went and traded my car in and got me a 2013 Dodge Dart ...which I am absolutely in love with and could not have afforded without DH's help.

    Then DH planned a trip to Knotts Berry farm for us on Saturday. We had such an amazing time. We ran around just laughing and having a blast. He wont me a bunch of stuffed animals at the little "carnival games" that they have there. We went and had one of those character drawings done, which is hilarious and amazing! All kinds of fun things. We both had such a great time!

    Then DH FINNNAALLLYYYY helped me hang all our pictures. So we have all our wedding pictures and stuff up and our place finally feels like a cozy home!

    We were gonna go horseback riding on monday but DH wasnt feeling very good. He had a rough night. He was sleep walking for a good 2-3 hours causing complete havoc in the apartment and making me completely crazy! So we are supposed to go this weekend instead.

    I'm just still in complete bliss over this weekend. It was truly such an amazing weekend. DH was in a great mood 98% of the time and we had so much fun! It was soo soo soo needed!!

    sounds like an awesome weekend!
    So close your eyes and sleep to dream. I'm by your side. No words to speak. We'll set our course and make it through. No matter how far, my heart remains with you.

    Thank you!

    Besides just having so much fun this weekend, I think what gets me the most is seeing his progress it is so amazing! We still have bad days but he's doing so much better then he was 1 year ago ....or even 6 months ago!
