    My husband, Garrett (ConchRepublic) is leaving for Ft. Still, Oklahoma tomorrow. He has 10 weeks of basic and 4 weeks of AIT, so won't be back until around Christmas time...

  4. my Dh will be home around then too, so we can be lonely and miss them together until then. When my DH shipped out to BCT, my youngest was 5 weeks old, and my middle child was almost 2, and my oldest was almost 4... i just about died with the amount of crap I had to deal with when he was gone... we rented, and heat was included, well, on a friday evening, the propane tanks went empty, and the house was poorly insulated, and it got colder and colder, and colder, and we didn't have any money, had JUST paid rent for the month, and ended up having to call my dad, and have him put 100 gallons on his Credit card, and he had to pay for an emergency visit by the propane people... and then of course DD (2) managed to slip on her own pee, right next to the bathtub, I was putting her in the tub, and she was walking well by then, but she just managed to pee and slip, in 1/2 a second, and pushed her teeth through her lip, and she was naked, and peed on, and screaming, and bloody, and her lip was just hanging there.... and I got about 5 flat tires while he was gone, and had to move while he was gone, and lost my job while he was gone, so, i guess what I'm saying, is that YOU WILL BE FINE. things are going to happen, and things are going to suck, but it will all work out in the end. BE strong, and cut yourself some slack~
