Last 2 weeks of DH's deployment!!!!

DH will be home in around 2 weeks time.   We have not seen him since January...  It has not been too bad I suppose,  DD had a lot of issues, I had issues with MIL lol but looking back this year has gone really really fast.  I think back to the morning that we had to drive him into the base at 4am  me and the kids had maccas on the way home lol.  seems like a life time ago yet just yesturday as well.   I am finding these last couple of weeks the hardest of all.  I am feeling really really lonely and teary and just wanting my husband home!!!  DD watched the movie Nims Island the other day, I had gone out with my mum and the kids stayed home with my dad (we went to my parents for school holidays)  when I got home she came running out the door bawling uncontrolably and saying over and over "I want my daddy, I want my daddy" it was just aweful.  apparently in the movie the girls dad leaves (I have not personally seen movie)   and well that just set her off.  We are back at our own home now as the kids go back to school on Tuesday.   I am feeling very flat.  I am just desperate for it to be over.   I better stop now before I end up like my DD :(    Oh and a S/O from the other post.   I have never said I am a single mother, but I have said that I feel like one. 

Hurry up the next 14 sleeps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is the anticipation! Before, it felt so far away. But now, he is just out of your reach. I think that is pretty normal :-)

I am in Australia,  they had a 2 week holiday between terms.  They got off school on the 29th June and will return on the 17th July.   They will have another 2 weeks off at the end of September and then out for 9 weeks on the 15th December for the summer.
