Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated.
Well, I’ve been back home from the Defense Information School for a bit now. Huzzy is gone. I missed him by SUCH a small window it hurts.
With him on the different type of submarine, we are going to have even less communication than the last boat. It’s been two weeks-ish since I heard from him (I’ve received one email since he left). I really don’t expect to hear from him until they are ready to return after the holidays. It’ll be tough. But we went through the holidays last year without any communication, either. That was seven weeks without an email. This is expected to be much longer.
I think the part that makes it harder this year is I’m in a new place. And I won’t be with family. At all. My mom (who I haven’t seen since February) was going to come out in November and celebrate the holidays early with me but is now not able to.
It’s really bummed me out. Especially since we only had 12 days together after the last deployment before I left for Maryland and then he was gone before I got back.
However, I’m really excited about the MilSpouse Secret Santa that I’m putting together. I think that will really help my spirits. I hope you all will join in!
I also really need to get photos up of my trips around the DC area while I was in Maryland.
