What Deployment Looks Like Part III

So we're well into our 2nd month of deployment and I'll admit to you all, that is starting to get hard.

Up and until now I think I let myself think he was just on TDY and would be back in a month or so. But sadly that is not the case. My husband is at war. Yeah that's a strange and surreal thing to think about it. He is doing well or as well as can be expected. They fly everyday and there are no days off.

So what does life look like right now...well here it is in words sans pictures...

1. Having a cell phone attached to you at all times and panic when you can't find your charger.

2. Knowing that 0000123456 is Skype calling your cell phone.

3. Waking up at 3am and reading an email you got from your husband telling you good morning.

4. Perhaps having an adult beverage or 2 on a particularly bad Tuesday night. (from your comfort of your couch)

5. Refusing to watch or delete your hubby's favorite shows that the DVR records.

6. Meeting up at your girlfriend's house and running late to a movie because she's Skyping with her husband. Obviously you are more than happy to be late.

7. Feeling the pain of your hubby calling you at 11am during the week and you're on a conference call and can't talk.

8. Letting the dogs cuddle with you in bed from 6am - 7am which is a huge no no in our house when Mr is home.

That's what my life looks like right now...glamorous no?

Hugs to you. I can't imagine. It has got to be hard, but you are doing what you can to get through it. I admire you both.

Got a little choked up here.
Hang in there girlie.
I think you are the hero here for keeping it all together at home.
:-) Thanks for sharing.
