One more day, Ben. One more day.

Currently, Ben is enroute to me. Soon he'll be in my car. In our house. Sharing my life again.

Well, the countdown is over. Only one day. He’s on the plane right now, on his way to me all the way from Afghanistan and it feels so unreal. Can it really be happening now? After 21 months apart, are we really about to be reunited?

I keep picturing how it will be but for now, I can’t even write. I can only get more nervous. More excited. He’s coming. This is it. It’s real.

Stay tuned this weekend when I actually introduce you to Ben and reveal his real name.

He’s finally coming home.
