Today is not one of those days...

I applaud the Navy (all military) wives that can talk about how awesome deployment is and how they love it and what a great thing it is for their relationship, etc. some days I can do that too. Today is not one of those days. As some of you know my husband is on Geo Bachelor assignment to Japan so ours is a bit different. He left in September of last year and came home in June for R&R. The next time it is likely he'll be home is next fall sometime. I'm ok with this I handle it ok most days.

Today is not one of those days. We've been able to talk to each other on the phone a lot lately but now due to some changes in duty he and I are back to talking by email randomly. Now I know email is better than nothing and that some people go much longer than that without talking to their spouses so I'm grateful about email but I'm having issues today with not getting to start my day hearing his voice. And to top it off I missed a call yesterday afternoon from him which would have been the last for a while.

I know this is temporary and I know that this is not a crisis but today is not a good day for me.

I think your guys' situation is different. The SC on my hubby's ship is a geo bachelor, and it has been pretty tough for he and his fam.

I think we all have those random moments where you discover a breaking point in the smallest, everyday things. You seem like one tough lady, I think.

I'm so sorry to hear you're having a tough time. There's no way around it -- deployments just really stink, don't they?

Is there anything I can do to help? If so, please, please email me!
