Blah

So, I've been MIA for a couple of days. Just feeling the blues. Letters from SoldierMan have been sporadic this week. Haven't had much chance to get out of the house. The one night I had plans with friends didn't work out. Granted, it's because one of the friends wound up in the hospital, so there were extenuating circumstances. And now, certain other circumstances have made my favorite hang-out almost unpleasant to go to, not at all relaxing. And my shower is broken, so I have no water pressure and even less temperature control.

Sorry, having a bit of a pity party right now. SoldierMan wrote and said they heard they won't get their phones again until the end of the month. So that's probably also affecting my mood.

I know. I'm a wuss. I said it first. It's really not that bad compared to what other people are going through right now. I know. I just needed to get it out.

See you on the other side.

  2. Oh no, the dreaded Murphy striking as soon as SoldierMan has gone. Welcome to the army... ;)

    I hope you feel happier soon. I am sure things will pick up - and remember, the sun will rise again tomorrow. And you can be sure that SoldierMan is thinking about you right now, too.

  3. Don't think what you are going through is any less than what others are going through. We ALL miss our husbands and it doesn't matter why. :)

  5. Anytime my husband is gone, whether it is a TDY, deployment, or whatever, I am crabby!! It is normal not to be yourself when they are gone. Half of your heart is gone! Hope the shower situation gets fixed soon. That can put anyone in a crabby mood!! I hope your friend feels better soon.

  6. I know you feel the need to add in what you did in the end about not having it as bad as others. I did that a lot too, but a husband gone is a husband gone. And you miss him. Period. No matter where they are or what they are doing, it's hard on us. All that missing him plus a non-working shower.. that's enough to put anyone over the edge!
    Buutttt I did just notice your ticker... 18 days!!!!!

  8. Give yourself some credit- he is over there, you are here. It's not just the distance that you have to deal with but all the pressures and worries. NO - no wuss there. Hang in there - you have my support, my prayers and my thoughts!

    as a civilian let me just thank you for being willing to sacrifice time with your sweetie(and much more) for our country.
    I don't know how you all do it!
    you are keeping this in perspective so you are entitled to a crabby day. or 2 or 3.
    BUt here's praying that your spirit is revived and you get to talk to SoldierMan soon.

  12. You can do this girl, think of how strong you will be when this is all over and you are looking back on it. Here's what I read on days when I think I just don't have it in me to keep going"God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength but with your testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it" (1 Corinthians 10:13)

  14. There is always a lot of stress and worries put upon you when your significant other is not there. And the addition of the Army makes it even harder. Stupid rules and regulations! Argh! But it will get better. :) Keep your positive energy uP!
