14 October 2009
Well, for starters, my husband is a Specialist in the Alabama National Guard aka the United States Army. And he has been in the Army since 2004. His first deployment was to Iraq in 2005-2006 with a unit out of Colorado. After he left Colorado and came to Alabama, he joined the National Guard. On Sunday, 11 October 2009, he deployed to Afghanistan. He will be gone up to 13 months with one 2 week leave around 7 months after being "in Country". *In country being in Afghanistan*
I can honestly say this really sucks. I had to move back in with my Mom so that we could save some money while he is gone. I miss having my own home. I can't leave things where I want to because nothing belongs to me. *sigh* But the worst thing of all is not having my husband here. Especially at night, because that's when we talk about everything right before we go to sleep. Or just hanging out watching tv. I'm not sure what I miss the most. I even miss washing his clothes. I guess this will get easier the more I get used to it, if that is even possible. I don't think it's possible to get used to not being with the one you love! I found a really great quote that explains a lot I guess:
"Missing someone gets easier every day, because, even though you are one day further from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will."
Hopefully it will seem that way soon.
Please keep Jeremy in your prayers. And if you feel like praying for me to, that would be nice. lol.
