My hubby has been gone for 3 months now. He is missing Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. They just extended his deployment so our babymoon is now cancelled. The people I live have been so unsupportive of DH being gone. My friend told me to get over and I knew this when he signed up. Easy for her to say as she spends every weekend with her hubby and all the holidays. Yes we knew this when he signed up but some days are really hard. SInce we have not lived together for almost 2 years I did think this deployment would not be this hard. (this was our fist deployment) However, some days are just rough!!! I guess no one knows what you are going through till they have done it themselves.
The other thing my friend did that hurt my feelings was tell DH he calls to much. DH gets to call everyday and sometimes twice a day. We also get to Skype everyday since he works nights. DH called a second time and my friend grabbed my phone and told DH that I had other things to do besides talk to him. DH gets so excited everytime we get to talk. Sometimes he calls when it is not a good time but I stop everything and talk to him for his alloted 10 mins. I know he needs to know what is going on to not feel like he is missing things. I get it!
I was not sure how to respond to my friend other than just be upset! Anyway, just needed to vent and I knew you girls would listen.
