I needed a break...

Sorry I have been MIA. I just needed a break, I lost the desire to write, anything... I always have a hard time in the beginning of a deployment (who wouldn't right). How could it possibly be easy.
It's not, deployments suck. The first month is always tough while I adjust to everything. While I get used to being a single parent. This is our 8th deployment in 9 years. I guess I have learned how to deal with it better (I don't cry myself to sleep at night anymore), but it doesn't get any easier. If anything it got harder because our first deployment I didn't have any kids yet, I was pregnant. I only had myself to take care of. Then there were a few where I only had one child. This is the 4th deployments where I have had two children to take care of. I'll manage, I always do.
Luckily I have a good friend who will help me out if I need it.



  1. I hear you. Ours is coming up very soon and I too suck at month 1. I no longer sleep on the couch the whole time :-) but I hate it for the kids most of all.

  2. Forgot to link my blog:

  3. Hearing you loud and clear. I not a Military wife but a "trail-blazing" Expat wife about to embark on her next journey. As one blogger friend put it: "Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold."
    Chin up. Greetings from Switzerland.

  4. Hi - I am asking for fellow bloggers to visit my site in hopes that we can find a match for a young girl that desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would be great if you could visit today too. Thank you. Kelly

    My husband is going to training in July. Thankfully it's just for five weeks, but both my boys are daddy's boys, big time.
    BTW-thanks for joining my triberr group. Did I invite you? If not then it is inspired that you requested because I kept telling myself that I needed to invite you.
