I miss my Husband

He has only been gone 2 months. I still have 5 more to go.
I am so tired of doing it all alone. I don't have family here to help me. I only have 1 friend and she has two kids of her own.
I just get so lonely. What I wouldn't give to at least be able to call him when I wanted to. Pick up the phone and have a meaningful conversation that lasts more than 15 minutes. Be able to call when I needed to, not wait around wondering when he will be able to call me again.
When hes gone, I don't eat well. I don't sleep well, I stay up way too late all the time, I hate sleeping alone. I miss him and need him home. Only 148 days to go.....
I could use a hug.

Mrs. Marine



  1. Hang in there, I know it's rough. The contribution the mamas back home make is so meaningful.

    Hang in there!

  2. Aw, here is a big hug for you. HUG

  3. Me too..mine has been gone for 3 months and we have 9 more let to go. Hang in there :Hugs:

  4. I have no idea how I ended up here... this is the first time I've been to your blog, btw. I know exactly what you mean though. My DH has been gone for 2.5 months, we've got four kids 3 and under, and at least 8 months till he's home from Iraq!?! I definitely agree that not being able to pick up the phone and reach him is the hardest part of this deployment so far. Hang in there!!

  5. Sending some hugs your way. My DH has been gone for 4 months now and we have 8 more to go. I know what you mean by wanting to talk for longer than 15 minutes. I hate when he calls and we get cut off a few times - we then give up.
    Hang in there and drop by blog some time for some comic relief - you aren't alone in this! We all go through it! {HUGS}

  6. Here is a hug for ya!! I know you probably get sick of hearing hang in there but that is all we can do. My husband just joined the military and has been gone to basic training and tech school since june. I don't know what it is like to have them deployed to iraq so i know i don't totally understand but he has been gone for 5 months and missed our anniversary and the birth of our second child and i feel the same way you do about sick of doing it alone. I don't sleep or eat. I only gained 17 pounds when i was pregnant and she is just a month old and i have lost 30 pounds and all i can think about is sleep. Oh my sorry that was so long. I don't have any family here either and i don't get to talk about this much. So try to hang in there!!! Thanks for listening. hehe again sorry so long.
