  • Not until he retires.

  • I've never been in that situation, but I would assume not. Sorry. :(

  • Not really :( I have gotten better at dealing with him being gone and doing things myself but I never get used to the loneliness!

  • That's well put ILoveCade! No, it doesn't get easier. Probably not even when he retires, cause then he's always there. Always under foot, up your ass. No, not easier. You just get better. Better at communication (hopefully); better at dealing with all that comes with the deployments, which is a long list.
