My dh just left heading back to base. This just keeps getting harder on us all. Sometimes I have to wonder if it wouldn't be better to not see him. They are on 'hours' notice now. I know that things can change, but it's not looking good. I was so hoping that a lot of the war would be over before our unit had to go over. Guess not. Sorry for whining this morning girls. I just needed to get this out. And I know that you-all can surely relate to this. Thanks for just being here.

Hugs!

Deep breaths. Just remember to hold on to hope and the fact that this won't last forever and soon one day your lives will return to normal.

Hugs Jami

Hugs sweetie. We all do know how you feel! I remember when my DH was deployed last year. They would let us do the Video Tele Conference with them, and after awhile I had to wonder if it was worth it to go out to the Army base and do it. I had to take 2 hours off work to see him for 7 minutes, where we got about 3 minutes of conversation in because of the time delay. I felt like the worst wife ever thinking that, but I always felt worse after seeing him on the VTC because we didn't even really get to "talk". So don't you feel bad about what you are thinking about seeing your DH. TImes are tough enough right now, you just need to take care of yourself and do what makes YOU happiest and feeling best about yourself and your situation.

Anyway I just wanted to send out some hugs for you, from another depressed Jami. ;)

And big hugs to you too Jami!! We 'Jamis' are having a tough time right now aren't we? lol I do feel bad wondering if it's all worth it seeing him then having to say goodbye again. I guess I know that a lot of wives would give anything to see their dh's right now. But all of this is starting to take it's toll on us all. *sigh* Hopefully this will all be over soon.

It sounds like you and the baby are doing good! I'm glad to hear it! You'll have to post us some new pictures of the little man soon!

Hang in there. One of these days our lives will be back to normal!

Hugs!

I totally agree with you Jami. This last time seeing DH was very traumatic. It was awful having to say goodbye yet again. This time it was for an indefinite period of time and that made it much worse. I am so grateful that with him leaving that the next time we see each other neither of us will be living out of a suitcase and "just visiting" for a few days. We will actually have a home and that will be a major accomplishment.

Hugs to you.

I understand what you're feeling. My husband is supposed to be back for 2 weeks before leaving again for a few months. I know it'll be hard on me and DD. But the little times you have with him do sometimes wear thin when he keeps having to leave. I'm so sorry you're still in the waiting part. Waiting is the hardest. Good luck to you and sending some good vibes your way.

Jami,

Big hugs to you and your family. I've had to say numerous goodbyes before...although not in war time. Three years ago I had to say goodbye to my dh on Easter Sunday and then drive back home 4 hours away. I didn't see him for 6 months after that. You are strong and just keep yourself busy and make sure your son does his homework!! LOL! Take care and stay strong!
