Father's Day; Typical Sunday Here

With Hubby deployed it's just a typical Sunday for me and the kids today. Nothing special going on.
He called me last night and I totally forgot to tell him "Happy Father's Day" and it was already Sunday for him too... Oops.
I wish the kids and I could actually call him when we wanted to. It stinks, I don't have a phone number to call my husband... I have an email address that he is able to check regularly and a FPO address which snail mail takes about a month to get to him...
In the event of an emergency I would contact the Family Readiness Officer that's here on base and/or the American Red Cross.

The only other important "Dad" in my life is my Father-in-Law, whom I already called. I have a really good relationship with my in-laws. So not typical, I know!
My father is not involved in my life. I don't even remember the last time I talked to him. On my birthday all I got was a message posted on my Facebook wall... Because it's so much harder to pick up a phone... My parents divorced when I was 5.

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there, hope you all have a great day!

  2. Visiting from voiceBoks. I have a son who is a Marine and I'm thankful he hasn't been deployed yet. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for you to not be able to pick up the phone and call your husband when you want to.

    Hopefully, you will remember to tell him Happy Father's Day the next time you talk to him =).

    I have a good relationship with my in-laws, too. It's unusual, but not unheard of lol. My parents are both gone, so they've become my parents.

    I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog, especially since my son and your husband have some things in common. Ooh Rah!

  3. I'm sure your husband will understand. When we get those phone calls there are usually so many important things we want to say that we tend to forget things like "happy Father's Day."

  4. Hugs to ya! My Father-in-law has been a father to me, unlike my biological father. My parents divorced when I was 4 or 5 as well. By age 7 my mother abandoned me and my brother so I haven't seen her since and my father's parents took us in so we would see him every now and again. Kinda sucks but being that I'm over 40 and have 3 kids and a hubby I could care less. I know that they are the ones missing out. I can't figure out why a parent would do it but either way, they did and I don't dwell on it.
    I'm proud of your hubby and I think you rock! I pop in at your blog every now and again. Thanks for linking up during our Alexa Blog hop. Hope to see ya again on Thursday! xoxo SusieQTpies
