I said “see ya later” to my husband a couple days ago in the wee morning hours. I’m still a bit in shock — and can’t believe he won’t be home again for another two months.
In a way, I’m glad that they gave my husband a flight out at 6am. We had to be up at 4am and out the door before 5am. It was way too early for me to process what was actually going on. I got home around 6am and was able to catch a few hours of sleep again. Everything felt like a dream. By the time I woke up to work, I couldn’t believe that it happened!
It was like a band-aid…everything was so fast that the pain went by quickly too. Now that I’ve had some time to be on my own (with the cat), I feel as though another big change is happening. I got married and moved out of New York City, but it’s been my husband and I since then, which I’ve absolutely loved.
Being married (to him in particular) has been a-mazing! Everyday that goes by gives me more validation on the decision I made to marry him (cheese!!!). Anyway….
In the six months of being together, he’s actually been TDY twice already. Luckily, it was only for a week at a time — and the second one that was two weeks, I was able to visit him on the weekend between the weeks. He was just at Fort Lee, VA — only about 3 hours away. Easy peasy. Get in a car and drive….
Arizona is a bit further away from Virginia. I would actually have to hop on a plane to visit. Plus, he’s being housed in a barracks facility and not in a hotel like his time at Fort Lee. My visit would be completely out of pocket.
I’m looking forward to visiting my husband at the end of his class — and having time to myself as well as his homecoming! Also, lots are going on to keep me busy too! Hopefully it will be like the last six months and fly by.
Thank goodness for technology too! Being able to see my handsome husband’s face helps!
