Possibly a week from today DH may be gone off to boot camp. I am already sad, he isn't eve gone yet! LOL It is going to be a long 3 months. Two days next week he won't be home at night, I know I won't be sleeping. On top of that, my son starts school on Friday. I should be use to this, my ex was in the Army and I maybe saw him 6 months out of the first 2 years we were married. I guess when someone you really love and rely on leaves, it never gets easier. I am so worried about things though. Like my son acting out because his step-Dad isn't home, being 30 miles away from my support system, not being able to find a job to help cover the bills, not being able to sell the baby birds, not being able to sell my car and maybe not being able to pay the rent on Sept 1st. Ack! Good news: I have 2 job interviews next week, so hopefully I will be super busy! How do I even know that this is even the right thing for him to do? How do you handle being alone for a long time?

wow three months is a long time. i would feel rotten if i were you too. I was missing my hubby when we were away for 7 days. and that was not so long. i guess when you really love someone you hate being away from any protracted period. although sometimes a little absence makes the heart grow stronger. i suppose you have to keep busy, and also take this time to be independent. hope that all goes well for your job!

I hate being alone :( But its something we have to do! You love your husband and you know you can get through it! At times you may break down in tears, but thats normal, just your heart crying out for your husband. Just start counting the days until he comes home :)
