Default Does anyone else get excited when their ticker changes??

My husband and I count down to everything... visits, birthdays, anniversaries, dr apts, commissary, pretty much everything because we feel it makes the days go by so much faster. I have a count down app on my phone and computer to. But I get really excited when I see my ticker change on PTO. Just a few days ago it was at 15 months and now it's at 14 months 3 weeks and 4 days. Yay it's going fast. I can't wait!!!!

I hadn't even looked at it in a few days and when I finally looked I couldn't wait until my husband called me this morning. His response was "I love you baby...we are getting closer everyday". God I love this man.

That's awesome! I haven't started one yet because we don't know a date yet. We just know that everyday in counts toward the final number.

My ticker is counting down to my husband's ERD of course it's up to the parole board to let him out but here in Michigan if your non violent and you've done your programs they very rarely keep you any longer. So I'm going with it until I here different.

It's funny how it seems like it'll take forever for the days to pass, but when you're busy living life they kinda fly by without you realizing it. Sometimes. Sometimes it seems like I feels every second of every day.

I'm living and dying and FREAKING OUT by my ticker right now!

I totally did. I got kind of math-obsessed while she was in her last 6 months or so...I'm relieved to be done with that. But especially when things got into double digits.....that was kind of amazing.

I'm math obsessed at the moment too, but our count down has a crazy uncertainty band on it. It's like some kind quantum mechanics problem that can only be answered with a probability.
The good news is that we know it happen sometime between 9/8 and 9/29.

Freaking changed his day to come home on Nov 8. My lo is so upset and so am I. Just another way for him to be screwed. Our justice system sucks.

I've always loved countdowns, especially when I was a kid counting down to my birthday, Christmas or summer break. I always had a way of counting that made things seem much closer than they actually were, like for counting down the days to summer break from school I wouldn't count weekends lol....but this countdown for when my fiance comes home is by far the most special, exciting, important, emotionally draining and worth-wild countdown! Some days fly by and others seem to go in slow motion, some days the wait for him doesn't feel so long and other days it feels as if he will never come home, some days are easier or harder than others, but each day I get through brings my love closer to coming home!
