Dh deploys next week... it isnt the first time (6th?) and 6 months is not the longest we've been apart before (over a year) and it isn't to anywhere dangerous (thank God).
My problem this time around however, is it's the first time as his wife... we first got together 2 months before he left for bootcamp, more than 8 years ago. we've been married since January. It is the first time where I have literally not known anyone, we got to California in February, and I have been a little too busy to meet anyone, being pregnant and having a baby. Which brings up the fact that this is the first time as a new mom of a beautiful 2 month old dd.
I'm trying to find a way to make money with an ebf baby, 2 dogs, 3 ferrets, and 115gallon fish tank that requires monthly maintenance. (yes i know ferrets are illegal in CA. that isn't the point.) I have no friends or family here, money is very very tight, (newborn, student loans, moving across the country...) and i am doing my best not to stress and to make dh not feel any guiltier than he already does.
I suppose I don't really have any real questions, just need to vent/ask for any advice. I am sure I'm not the first woman in the world with this dilemma, and I won't be the last.
