    DH is being picked up by his brother tomorrow morning at 4am, to take him up to the airport, to fly back to afghanistan. He's been home 2 weeks, and things have felt so 'normal' since he's been back. I am just sick at the thought of letting him go. my 2 DDs, 5&3 are also devastated, and I just want to puke. He was gone 5 months already, and I really hate the military. Plus, he's going back to a less safe area than he's been in, which increases everyone's stress. prayers I guess might help, if y'all have any... makes me just want to lay down and not wake up 'til he can come home for good... but the kids would starve, which'd be bad.

    I know exactly how you feel [​IMG] my dh just got here(an early surprise) and I am dreading him leaving again. We still have a few more days but I know the kids(14,12,9,7,4,2,5mo) will have a hard time with him leaving again, especially my 4yo autistic son and 2yo dd. I feel for you [​IMG]
