Sorry guys another post.  I can not believe that it has been 5 months since I got my last hug/kiss from my DH.  It seems like just yesterday that he was sitting next to me watching TV or we were just laying in bed holding each other.  But then some days, it feels like I have been a "single" mother forever.  (For those single mothers, God Bless You!  I don't know how you do it all of the time.  I am only having to do it for 13 months.)  I try to remember what it was like to have him home for dinner every night & honestly I am having a hard time remembering.  Is that bad?  Is that crazy to think that I have forgotten what is it like?  If you read my previous post, then you know he is getting ready to come home for his R&R visit.  I am so afraid that he will not fit into our routine.  I know that we are going to have to adapt to him being home.  I will have to get used to sleeping w/someone all over again (no more king bed for me-LOL!). 

I guess I better get back to the topic.  We are almost half way done with this deployment.  I have become a stronger woman than I ever thought I could be.  I have done a lot of things that I thought I would never do.  I didn't think I would be able to handle our 2 girls by myself but I have.  I have adjusted to being by myself pretty much all of the time.  But I love my husband and I support him in what WE chose to do.

Thanks for listening again.

Thank you, your family and your husband for the sacrifices you are making for all of us. God Bless him and you.

I know it is hard to adjust without him and it will be hard to adjust again when he comes home. Just remember that it will take time. I know with my cousin, his wife had a hard time giving up being the only parent, the only person running the house, etc.. But, they are doing great now. He was gone for 16mo. and has been home about 6mo. now.
