He's Gone

Yes, my husband letft yesterday.... We knew it would be hard, but we had no idea it would be this hard. I miss that man SO MUCH!!!! We are both totally so in love, it's just obviously so hard because we cannot live without one another... We really had a hard time Saturday, saying goodbye. On Fridya night my husband and I saw no point in going to bed, because we wanted to spend as much time awake with one another as possible. We did eventually sleep, but my husband had set the alarm so 5:30 so we'd be sure to have a good, full morning together. And we did. It was beautiful, perfect, and precious. But we did have to say goodbye... It was so hard to just maintian composure!!!

I know we're not going to be apart as long as many other people are, but for us, ~70 days is torture!! I have a lot of projects I want to accomplish, but at the same time I just want to zone out so I'm no missing him so much. I already got some things done, but I'm trying to take it a day at a time, so have have enough to work on before he comes back.

I don't know why we've done this, but I know we're strong enough to do it. I am just living every day waiting for his return. Day 1 done, Day 2 halfway done!

That must be the hardest thing. I just can't imagine how it must feel to say goodbye for so long. And then to be left with your thoughts on your own.

You're very brave and we're all here if you want to chat.

I can't imagine being apart for that long. I hope it makes for a very sweet reunion.

i feel your pain! i hate those first few days..weeks. as a military wife I think the deployments just make us appreciate our men more and not take for granted the little things. stay strong and busy!! he'll be home before you know it ( i know easy for me to say, right when I have only 12 days left)!

My thoughts and prayers are with both you and your husband.
Those good-byes are so hard. It sounds like you are handling everything great.

WISHING...HOPING...and PRAYING said...

I'm so sorry. I know it must be very lonely. :( You have my prayers for you and safety for your husband.

(I'll let you know I'm a complete wimp when my hubby leaves and usually spend several hours crying into my pillow, or on the front step, or in the shower, or wherever I happen to be. I feel like my heart is ripped to shreds when he isn't with me and the summer he spent 3.5 months away was torture. Feel free to vent and whine as much as you need to!!)

Oh, hon, I hope these weeks go by as quickly as possible.

I am so sorry. I hope that the time goes by faster than you think it will.

Again, thank you for what you both sacrifice. Thinking of you. . .

70 days is a long time to be without your love. You are brave women, just as your husband is a brave man.

I'm sorry that you had to say goodbye :O(.

I have to do the same next week when DH heads to OCS. I'm dreading it. I'm trying to think of fun ways to 'surprise' him (things to hide in his car for when he has liberty, etc.)... but I just draw a blank because it makes me sad. Any ideas?
