Deployment countdown jar - great for kids! 
Put the amount of M&M’s in the jar for how many days your service member will be deployed. Each morning (or night), eat one M&M. It’s “a tasty reminder of being one day closer to homecoming.”
Another idea is Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses.

And if you like to see progress (how many days have passed vs. how many days are left), another idea is to put the amount of marbles/candies/etc. in one jar and each day, move one from that jar to another jar. You can label each jar with “Done” and “To Go!”

ABOUT

my-deployment-scrapbookThis is kind of an online scrapbook as well as an encouragement page and hopefully a somewhat informational page.

I will be the first person to admit that I don't know anything about the Army. I don't know what it's like to be an Army wife, but I do know what it's like to be an Army girlfriend and fiancée. I am not a know-it-all and will not pretend to know it all, but I am learning. I hope to post things on here as I learn them and if anyone ends up following this page, I hope you can learn with me. :)

My love is deployed right now and as deployment continues to get longer and harder, I seem to find myself looking more and more for support and inspiration to deal with everything.

I look for quotes, videos, songs, pictures, etc. each day to help myself stay strong and just realized it would be a good idea to post them all in one place so I can come back and look if I'm having a bad night, and so other people can look if they want/need to.

I'm making this blog for me, but I'd love to share it with you... Feel free to follow, reblog things, ask questions, submit things, etc.

This blog was made 09.09.11 - please
bear with me while I get it up and running!
