Finally. He made me come back home today. It was hard of course. Hard on both of us. They are supposed to be leaving *soon*. But I'll have to see it to believe it. lol So far nothing has happened as planned. I don't think all of this has dawned on me yet. I mean, where he's going, I just don't know how I will deal with it, ya know? I need coping advice BAD! lol

Other than that things are fine here. I drove all by myself today! Yah! I've never driven that far all alone. I didn't tell my mom or dad though until I was like 100 miles away from home. lol Didn't want them to worry.

I'm just glad to be home. I've probably made my last trip to see my dh. *sigh* I'll write more tomorrow. I hope everyone is doing ok.

Huge Hugs to you all!

Big giant, squeezey hugs Jami. My DH should be leaving in a matter of days and I feel much the same as you. A bit numb about the whole deployment and how long it is for. I mean how do you really get yourself to understand how long a year or a year and a half is? I don't have much coping advice. I've haven't been doing too well lately and being sick sure as heck hasn't helped matters much. Nothing like feeling sad and sorry for yourself and then getting sick to make life really pitiful. lol

If you get a chance to be online in the evening IM me. I'm usually hang out online trying to pass time and would love to talk.

BTW, way to go on the big drive by yourself!

Hugs Jami,

There is a prayer that you can say to yourself right now, The Serinity Prayer. Try not to worry about the things which you cannot control, control the things you can and turn it over to God.

Keep yourself busy, throw yourself into a project and stay positive for your son.

Huge hugs to you
