Deployment Daze

7:23 PM Edit This 2 Comments »
As the end of May creeps its way closer and June starts to float into my horizon, I have this horrible feeling of loneliness starting to overwhelm me. My handsome, and hilarious, husband will be deploying the first week of June. This will be Chris's first deployment as he was lucky enough to not go last year and it will also be our first separation since we were married in March of 2008. I think the hardest part will be the fact that I am still integrating myself to the atmosphere here in Oklahoma as all my family is 5 hours away in Kansas, so I will be almost completely alone with the exception of the lovely faces of the ladies I work with each day and my close, and absolute blessing from God, friend Tammy.

I will also have to continue to kiss my angel goodbye for a week each month as her father, since Chris is her step dad (but we call him Daddy), will still continue to get his visitations each month even during Chris' absence. Therefore there will be 7 whole days each month that I will have to come home to a completely empty house. I think that I will either be scrubbing every nook and cranny, working out every muscle in the human body at the gym or just coming to munch on a HG Sassy Southwester Egg Roll and climbing into my bed to lose my sorrows in my sleep.

I just ask that those of you who read this will keep me in your prayers. I am sure this all seems a bit selfish of me but I can admit that I am needy lol. I love my husband and one of the things I am most thankful for is coming home to the man I fell in love with and for 6 months, which I know is much shorter in the big scope of things compared to other deployments, I won't be able to fall asleep to the sound of him breathing and I promise that I am not taking that for granted each night until he leaves.

So I shall close on a lighter note with a picture of sweet Coheed who is growing like a weed:

and my miracle from the Lord:

God Bless

I just hate deployments. What I'm finding out is almost just as bad is having him home and yet not having any of his time. The military is kind of bad about that, and we just had our first child in April. I hope the deployment goes well for you!
