  • My DH was in the army for 20 years. I am good a being alone. I just do the same thing I usually do. At night is the hardest part to get use to.

  • My DH travels for work a lot! I also struggle the most in the evenings.. I try to find something to occupy my time.. whether it's watching a tv show, talking to someone on the phone or hanging out on my computer! It passes time very quickly!
    As far as a send off ~ I would sneak a letter or a cute pic of myself in his bag! He would be so surprised.. or I've even made homemade cookies for him and packed them for him!
    Good Luck!

  • My husband is leaving Thursday and he'll be gone for 7 weeks. And that's a short time apart in the Army. :)

    If you're talking 5 days, it won't be so bad. Just fill your days with plans and by the time the night rolls around, watch a movie that he doesn't like or relax with some friends and a great glass of wine or just hang out on CM.
