I jsut realized

In the 9 1/2 years we've been together  DH has missed many holidays and significant events due Police academy,boot camp, training, or deployments.  I just realized on Saturday that this is the first Memorial Day we are not together though :(  I haven't gotten to talk to him since Friday and will probably have to wait another 3 weeks or more to talk to him or for him to get emails.  I'm not trying to complain. This is our decision and I am ok with it.

 I'm used to spending holidays without him, but  for some reason it seems a lot more difficult today than normal and he's not even like he is in harm's way at all right now.  I know I just need to suck it up, but I guess part of it is a feeling of guilt.  I know everyone,including me, is enjoying BBQ's, time with family and friends, going to the beach, pool or some sort of activity while he's in a hot desert training his butt off. 

 Sorry I needed to vent a little.

 On a happier note, I hope everyone is enjoying the day!  Happy Memorial Day!

  • I'm sorry you aren't spending the day with your DH.  A BIG thank you to you AND your DH though!

    I'm going to guess that she posted something, intended for another thread, and the nest wouldn't let her delete it...

     I'm sorry your are away from your husband, I don't know how Military wives do it. But ya'll seem to be a special, strong breed of women :-) and I know you'll make it!

  • I'm sorry you are not only away from your husband but not able to speak to him. I understand what it is like to be separate on holidays, we rarely have a holiday together, however, I do not know what it is like to not be able to speak to him. I hope you are able to speak to him soon. I don't know how you do it either, but you are certainly a strong woman!
  • Thank you for all the kind words and support.  I guess it's even more difficult because he has a deployment coming up soon so we already want to spend as much time together as possible. He was at this one thing for 3 weeks when we couldn't talk or email at all then he was home for less than 2 weeks then went to prede training and he is in a part of his training now where he is out in the desert and won't have any cell phone service.  It seems like he's been gone more than he's here recently and so close to him being gone for a long time and in a dangerous situation it's starting to get to me much more than these things normally get to me.
  • I'm sorry. I do want to thank you and him though. The fact that he is willing to serve our country, and the fact that you are a supportive wife who encourages him means a lot to a lot of people. I know that doesn't make it easier when your missing him, but thank you.

    I hope your able to spend as much time as possible with him before his impeding deployment. 

    And don't think that you can't come on here and talk to us about it. Your not complaining, your a wife who justifiably misses her other half.

  • I'm sure you miss him so much, I can't even imagine.  Thank you to you and your husband!
