I use my two feet and get involved with things in my life.  I do not dwell on the fact he is not there as nothing productive comes of it.

During his last deployment, I had so much going on, so my mind was occupied with solving problems and maintaining daily order and routine for the kids. I honestly didn't have a lot of time to miss him.

I have sad days where I don't want to do anything an am in a bad mood, But I also have kids, so they make it so I get up and do what I gotta do. Find some good friends for support, that helps. Moms group, other parents, other mil spouses, etc.

Find reasons to smile every day...watch a comedy, post funny pics on Facebook, hang with funny people. Laugh whenever you can.

Find a hobby, plan things to look forward to.

Try and keep yourself busy. It will make the days go by so much more quickly.

Just stay busy.  I was 5 months pregnant when my dh went to basic (not a deployment, but he was gone, I was pregnant and living 800 miles from any family).  I became active in my church, I joined play groups for my dd who was 2 at the time, we went to the mall just to have something to do, story time at the library.  We did anything to pass the time.  As far as the deployment goes, don't think about the negatives.  Don't live through every what if.  Just keep positive and keep going.

I found out a week after dh left that I was pregnant.  I understand emotional :)  Get out as much as you can - even if to just go for a walk.  Ok, realizing the weather is insane in some places...take a walk at the mall.  The more you focus on yourself in the present, the less you are to think too much about him being gone.
