is starting to feel the blues knocking on the door because their other half isn't here this year?  I have gone through this before, but it seemed to be alot easier last time.  Thanksgiving is a few days away and I soooooooo don't want to have to deal with it.  :-)  It just seem like I miss him all the more during family events.   On the plus side, there is always good food at our Thanksgiving, mmmmmmmmmmm......

I would, but right now, I don't even like my other half.

What on earth did he do?    Was it that bad or are pregnancy hormones playing a part?  Do you need to talk about it?

Feeling this way because mine is not here this year too, plus yesterday someone shattered the driver side window to my truck, and we really don't have the funds to replace it right now; its also my only transportation for my kids and me. That made me even more depressed yesterday. Here its suppose to be Thanksgiving this week, which I'm usually super excited about, and I just want to cry.

Normally, Thanksgiving is a day my dh is gone anyway.  Last year was tolerable because he was home.  But the eldest son was gone.  He was in AIT and Georgia is a long way from Washington.  This year will be the worst on record.  Absolutely no family but my two kids.  No one from the unit to come over and share this huge turkey, either.  I have invited a few to come over, but one's heading home and the other I just met so I understand if she doesn't want to come over.  But it's gonna be very lonely.  I just hope both my soldiers can get on the internet and use a webcam.  My dh doesn't have his own computer.  Long story.  My eldest has his own laptop but it's hard when there's 9 hours time difference.  So this will be very difficult for me.  Christmas is going to be even harder since we're always together for Christmas.  First one to be separated since our second and the eldest's first.  He was too young to care, but I remember being separated a week before Christmas and having to spend it with my grandma.  My dh had been transferred to Germany and it was 5 months before we joined him.  So even though my dh drove a truck after getting out, he was always home for Christmas.  Even if he was racing Santa through the door! :)  May everyone have a blessed holiday and please remember it may be difficult for us to be separated but there are many of our sisters who have lost their loved one and they won't ever spend another Christmas or Thanksgiving with them again.  That's what I'm thankful for this year.  That my soldiers are going to make it home again.  I just keep praying Psalms 91 over them.
