life without deployments
The other day I was talking to a friend who was just married. She was telling me all about their plans for life- where they will be in a year, fixing up their house, when they want kids, etc. A lot of things she said just seemed so off to me- so unrealistic- like, how can she plan that? And then I realized what was so different, she doesn't live her life between deployments. She doesn't live in the dreadful countdown until 'next time.' She wakes up every day, sure that he will be there today, tomorrow, and every day in the future.
I love FI. I love that he is in the military. I love what he does for me, for himself, for our country. But seriously, how nice would it be to live a life without deployments?
This mini-vent has been weighing on me for a few days, and I knew that you ladies would understand! Thanks for 'listening' to me!
