In just a few days we will hit the two year mark of when HB came back from deployment. In that time we've had a lot of changes including the an ETS, a move across the country, me entering the workforce again, and HB going back to college and contracting as an ROTC Cadet. In that time, in spite of having a lot going on, we've managed to have some great family time. To put it plainly, I have been spoiled. With the exception of drill weekends, I have had my hubby around all the time. That is until this month.
Pitiful as it is, this month apart has been dragging! I can't believe that tomorrow only marks two weeks since he left. One of the biggest differences in this separation is communication or a severe lack thereof. The only form of communication we have until shortly before he comes home is snail mail. Of course I love the romance of old fashioned letters, but it doesn't fill the void I feel with the husband gone.
After waiting through a year long deployment, you would think a month of training would be an easy feat, but what can I say, I'm spoiled.
