What really stinks is when you're about a month in and all of a sudden it hits you one day how much you miss your soldier. The past two nights i've had nothing but dreams of my husband and then I wake up just aching for him to be here to hold me. What I wouldn't give to see his pile of clothes on the floor by his side of the bed or his soda cans left around the house.
While he was here I almost felt like we rarely got to see him, but now even that little bit of time I long for. This afternoon we are getting family pictures, once again without him. Someone really needs to invent teleportation so we can just skip back and forth from here to there. It sure would make deployments alot easier.
