My husband hasnt deployed yet, but when he leaves for other things, I find its the worst at first, then gets better then is pretty good. But once they get back I feel so strange. I had gone so long with no hugs and kisses, now Ive got all this. Ive done 3 months straight with just phone calls. Now he is only home on weekends. No contact at all during the week. I find this harder so far (only on the second week of this) Once Im used to him gone, hes back. Once Im used to him back, hes gone. I think Im going to get a second job to work lots. Keep in touch with his friend here. Go to church (though I dont normally).
Finding a way to keep busy it the best way. I had a newborn after the first two month, and hadn't been home for a LONG time so the first two month I spent visiting, and going to doctors appointments, and after until I came to Korea, I had Elijah keeping me busy. I did get really bored though. My mom dad and brother were gone during the day to either school or work, so I didn't have much to do besides sit around and watch tv. But I'm glad I did since now I don't understand anything that's said over here lol.
