I’m just waiting for my blogging buddy, Anderson Cooper to come on. It’s that special “Battlefield Breakdowns” investigations show, I’ll probably be depressed but oh well, that the very least *I* can do is be informed. This is incredibly sad that this is into year 5.
I was totally against the thing from the beginning because I know what it’s like to have daddy away for long periods of time, to have a child crying/worried/lonely because they don’t understand where he is or why he is gone, or when he is coming back, or if he still loves them, or if we’ll ever be together again or (insert hundreds of other things they worry about).
Thank goodness we had children waaay into my husband’s enlistment (and deployments) boy2001 went through 2 6-month deployments and girl2004 went through 1. Hopefully that will be it! We are holding our breath for about a year until he retires in a year or so!
