Jason leaves for afghanistan at 8am well i gotta drop him off work at 4am. i dunno if I will stay to say bye or go home and come back or just go home at 4am and say bye at 4am. Im not sad yet. Im sure when I actually have to say bye i will be bawling my eyes out though. Saturday night I had an anxiety attack wich sucked, i dunno why i got it im on meds for it,. but i see my dr on thursday so i will tell her about it then. Tomorows gonna really suck. But all i can hope for is that hes safe and time flies, it will be a releif when he gets there and is able to call me or something to say he is there and ok, i know it will be a few days before i will even hear from him if not longer. Supposedly its a 6 mth deployment, but my friend heard 15 mths then people been saying 6-12 mths so i really dunno how long but whatever. I just really really hope that time flies by. Tuesday just came up really really fast. But we got last minute things done now. its gonna be weird with him gone but then like when hes in the field i get in a routine when he isnt here. so eh i guess it wont be too bad , tryin to keep myself busy. tomorow afternoon i gotta get the breaks changed on his truck, wednesday i gotta babysit. thursday i got my drs app. then i gotta schedule josephs 2 yr checkup and the dogs rabies shot.
On a happier note, joseph said a few words , i was giving them baths last night and jason came and got jordynne for me and i told joseph to say byebye to jordynne and he goes byebye dad and waved. then he had dropped his ball down the basement and goes uh oh whered it go. he also asks where we go when we get in the car lol. and here you go when he hands me stuff. so hes getting somewhere now, at least jason sorta got to hear him talk a lil before he left. i know joseph will most likely be talking alot more when he gets back and jordynne will be walking and the dog will be huge.ill have to take pics for him and video clips.
I just dropped him off. alot of people were standing out with there husbands this morning but it was rainy weather and i had the kids so i just dropped him off gave kisses and stuff he said bye to the kids now im back home. i didnt cry but also i know that he is still on base for a few more hours so idunno. hopefully its not to bad today. lets just hope time flies and they all come home safe. i think im gonna put joseph back to bed and try and get some more sleep. he was gonna pull an all nighter but we decided to get a couple hrs of sleep. jordynne woke up around 2am for a bottle and was ina weird good mood laughing and babbling it was cute hehe.
My hubby was gone a week on a fishing trip,he just got home today.I went insane not having him here for that length of time i couldnt imagine wut you are going through...are you able too talk to him via internet or do you write back in forth....my heart goes out too you and i hope his time away from home flys by like the wind.
im sorry i didnt get to respond sooner, we dropped steven back in camp leguene sunday and had to say our goodbyes for the last time as far as we know. I still get to talk to him on the phone and hes still in the conus but still goodbyes suck especially when they could be forever. i know how you feel, sucks when you realize the next time he gets to see the kids or they see him so much will have happened macy and liam will be 2 and 3 when he gets back. i dont think i could have stayed so far from my family in times like this. ugh im gunna cry just thinkin about it. ::hugz:: and the military sucks for stealing our husbands
im sorry girl!! i know its the worse feeling ever!
i agree the military sucks for taking our hubbys away..
eat a huge plate of something good.. food always makes me feel better.. your being so strong though.. brian doesnt leave until feb. and i bawl my eyes out everytime i think about it
ill be thinking of you girl.
***edit: this is my response to "the military sucks because they're taking our husbands away" comments. i am in no way saying "suck it up and get over it, you knew he would be leaving at some point". if the statement had been "george bush sucks for taking our husbands away", i would have agreed 100%. saying the military sucks for having your husband do his job is just silly. end edit.***
not to sound insensitive, but they did sign up for this. i don't know how old any of your husbands are but i'm assuming they're young like you and signed up after the war had already started, so they had to know they'd be going at some point.
i do feel for you and i wish nobody had to go over there at all, but this is the job they chose so you can't really say the military sucks for taking your husbands away.
good luck diane! you know we're here if you need us. a lot of my relatives were in the military so I know how you feel. stay strong and just concentrate on the kiddles! That's great that Joseph is talking more! They say not to worry boys usually start later anyway.
yeah we knew it when jason signed up he joined in 2005. We just kinda hoped he woulda went later and not soo soon. but we got a whole year together here before he left. i knew marrying him what i was getting into, so far im still strong, he called around 4pm they are still in germany im guessing at the airport they are waiting to get there once hes in afghanistan i wont here from him for a while until they are situated and trained etc.
today joseph said bye to his friend lexy, she babysat while i did the truck and i told him to say bye and he moved all his toys to one hand and said byebye and waved and i said give kisses and hugs and he kissed her. Im glad jason called and I got to tell him that too . Still day 1 of him being gone and he hasnt even left the country just yet.
