  • and you didn't feel that from the first two? Maybe it was because you were younger and taking care of your boys while this time they are older and do not require as much attention???? IDK! I'm in Alaska and he's been deployed for over a year now (first one!). That is how I feel now!! I keep thinking it is Alaska... can't really go hiking with the bears and moose out but I don't know why you feel like this now? How long has he been deployed? I hope you feel happier soon and he comes home quickly!!!

  • gosh probably bc of all the responsibility you have and bc you know what to expect and ...lots of reasons. I hope he took his laptop. We stayed in touch with my dd's bf every day while he was deployed bc he took his laptop. It made it easier on us all
