  • friends! I'm with other army wives whos hubby's are deployed as well and we go from noon til about midnight!!! It's NOT easy! I take my dd to the park daily, just getting out of the house... even if it's a walk around the block... anything to pass time! My hubby has been gone 11 mo and i have 4 more to go... If I don't get out one day, i'm inside for 4 days cuz i get SOOO depressed! Also, our park is across the street so that makes it easier! really, the key is getting out and doing SOMETHING!! ANYTHING! It makes time go by and that just means it's sooner to him getting back to you!

  • go on walks, try a new hobby, play games with the kids, read, organize, cook and bake, workout, plant a garden, work on a project to have ready for your hubby when he comes home =]
