  • I'm not going through the same thing. Thank you for the sacrifices you are making for our country. Make a paper ring chain with your kids. Keep saying "this too shall pass" and take lots of pictures to share with your husband when he gets home. Do you live in MN by chance? I would love to babysit for you. Hang in there!

  • The worst is over. Take a bubble bath, put on some music, relax. Then plan on his favorite meals you're going to serve him, his favorite restaurant you'll want to go to, and any other favorite things you'll do. Thank you and your family for the sacrifices you've had to make while he keeps our couintry safe.

  • my hubby just got home a few months ago...i know how hard it is. Just try to keep yourself as busy as you can. Take the kids to play dates and take advantage of give parents a break nights if you are near your base. You are almost there!!! Usually about a month out from homecoming I start a countdown with the kids. This last one we did candy in a jar...they got to take one piece out every night and they knew that when it was gone daddy would be home. (I know dates change so you can add or take away candy until you know the dates for sure) I have found that if you surround yourself with good friends it is so much easier to pass the time. I also usually go through all of the closets and storage to get rid of stuff that we no longer need and then go room to room to give the house a good deep clean before he gets home that way I can relax for a little while once I have him back knowing that the house is taken care of.
