I've tried so hard this deployment to be postive and most of this deployment has really been easy considering my husband's in a terrorist nation. Anyways...there are times when I just feel lonely. Not in that way that Chad has anything to worry about. I get to talk/chat with Chad almost every evening...but you know chatting isn't always the same. I normally talk to my 2 closest girlfriends on the phone during the week, but on the weekends their husbands are home and I know that time's precious and they want to spend it with them and I don't want to intrude. I have found though that come the night time on the weekends I'm simply lonely. I have wonderful friends here, but their not like my closest friends in the states and definately not like Chad.

One thing I want to do when Chad's home is twice a month us go and do something fun. Little day or weekend trips. I have so many plans for when Chad comes home. We're down to 3 months aka double digits! That's really exciting! I can't believe how close we're getting to the end of this deployment. In a lot of ways it's flown by! Having Chad get to come home half way through definately helped us too.

I know I'll get through the loneliness and tomorrow is Monday and I'll get to talk to my girls then!

Christy I am praying that God will fill your lonlieness until chad comes home. It must be very hard to be by yourself, taking care of you boys and just not having that companiionship of your husband.
Three months will go by fast, I pray that they go by fast for you.
Take Care

I know I have said this 1000 times, but if you ever need to chat I am here. I agree- in a way (at times) this deployment has gone somewhat quickly.

I think the one thing that made this be- was that you did not sit at home just waiting for Chad's return. You got out and surrounded yourself and the boys with the beauty and history of Germany. You created such wonderful memories for you and the boys and will be able to share these things with Chad when he comes home. You go girl!!

You have to be proactive in your happiness and you did just that!! You did not just sit home and mope and wait for im to come home.

Hang in there friend.....I am very proud of you! Plus, I have loved seeing your beautiful pictures!!

I know how you feel and I still have my hubby here.  I get lonely to talk to my friends but don't feel like I can bother them on weekends.  
PS  I am tired of the terrorist nations too!!!!!

((Christy))) I'm late responding to this; I can imagine you would be lonely. I think you are doing great trying to be positive and planning for get aways with Chad is a wonderful way to try to pass the time. Hang in there; every day is one day closer; such an old cliche but so true

(((Christy)))  Is there some kind of support group around for you locally that has other women experiencing a spouse in a war?
