Default My hubby is gone

....and on his way to Afghanistan. I hate that he has to deploy again, but I knew it was going to happen. The only plus is that this deployment is 9 months compared to the 15 month one he had last time. We dropped him off this morning and I let the kids skip school. We did a bit of retail therapy and I may have spoiled them a bit today.

In 9 months. We won't know the day until he is in the air coming home most likely. We have done this numerous times and it never gets easier.

I have he uptmost respect for military families, dh and I are apart a week and I lose my marbles. He is paid $150tax-free/day which in my research is in keeping with military deployment, but my goodness, money aside, I cannot deal with more than a couple days. My respect to you, your family and prayers for his safe return. My opinion and mindset is it must, be an incredible bond and strength of persons who can keep a family strong through such. My hat is truly off, I could not do it and applaud those who can.

I can't imagine how depressing this must be for you, especially with holidays coming up. Hope the nine months go by quickly. Prayers for his safety and strength for you and the family!

Sorry for you and the family. . Military life is so hard.
My daughter and son-in-law were both in service and I worried all of the time.
Thank you for his service!

I think I may have gone a little overboard on the retail therapy. I have been eyeballing a bedding set at Macy's for the past 2 weeks so I went ahead and bought it, as well as new pillows and new 800 thread Egyptian cotton sheets. I was given a 20% off coupon with my receipt so I went to the china dinnerwear section. Ummm, yeah. I bought new china too. I did get and amazing deal though. It was 50% off plus an extra 20% off with my coupon. I am now the proud owner of platinum rimmed china, 8 piece setting, 2 oval serving plates, 3 vegetable bowls, coffee pot, sugar/cream bowls, butter dish, gravy boat, and salt/pepper shakers. Let's hope the hubby doesn't look at the account too soon. He knew I was getting this stuff, just not today lol.
