The past few days have been hard on me. I got home from my Army training in mid-July and the Hubster is already gone for a TDY. I was gone 20 days, home for 1, flew to Florida and then took 2 days to drive back. Then we had like a week together. Then he was gone. And he will be for about a month.
And even when he gets back, there’s ranges and field time for him to do. All while I’m working more hours. And Piglet is getting more active. And Blueberry is growing.
It’s stressing me out.
Of course, I knew all this going into the marriage. Dual-military families have it even harder because one spouse could be gone and when they return, the other leaves. But these past few days have been “bad Army days.” And it’s got me thinking about what life will be like when we aren’t a military family.
But that’s probably for like 15 years so I may as well get used to it.
Maybe it’s just the hormones but I am feeling sad and missing my husband. At least when he was deployed, I could reconcile the fact that we couldn’t see each other. Now, he’s just in another state. And that makes it even harder.
