Awe.  We have all been there.  My hubby is currently gone.  My boys are 6 and 7 and understand now what is happening when Daddy goes away.  Stay busy and it will go fast.  Love the picture.

Do members of the Coast Guard get deployed a lot? I'm sorry:(

If they are on a ship, yes. They normally will be underway for half the year. It depends on the boat how long each patrol will be for.

Some boats go out for 2 months, come home for 2, others go out for longer


Hubby has been deployed "underway" 8 times now. boo

It really depends on if he is stationed on a ship or not. When you get his orders you can PM me and let me know, I could probbaly give you an estimate of how long he'll be gone.

Hubby will be home in a few months, I know when he'll be home but I can't post it on the internet. lol

Okay, I will for sure PM you when we find out. That would help me out a lot. 

haha...I had no idea there was confidentiality with CG? That's great he will be home soon. 

So what do you do when he is gone? Do you work, hang out with people or meander around? =) Are you close with the other coast guard wives?

Dh is gone 15+ days a month. He is at a small boat station. It is one of the more family friendly ones too!

Well this is his 2nd time on a ship, the 1st time we didn't have the baby, so I worked. I worked 2 part time jobs before and when I had off I pretty much just hung out at home. I was also close enough to my family that I would drive home on the weekends sometimes.

This time we're stationed far away from family, but I also have the baby now. So I'm home with her pretty much all day everyday, but there is another cg wife that we were stationed with before...she lives 3 houses down from me, so I hang out with her a lot now. 

And yes, there is confidentiality in every branch. Basically you never discuss when the boat is leaving, when its coming back and when and where port calls are. 

Yeah we're excited that hes coming home soon, but it still seems far away to me. lol
