Deployment: 10 Months In

by Koko on March 3, 2012 · 5 comments

in Army, Deployment

It’s almost over. It’s close to the end. We’ve almost made it. 10 long months down.

A lot of military wives and girlfriends say the last couple months are the hardest. There’s the excitement about their return mixed with nerves. I’m anxious. I’m impatient. I lost my “it’s ok, he’ll be home soon” mindset and it’s turned into “get home now” instead.

I’m sick of delayed phone calls. Of sleeping alone. Of petty fights over nothing. Of not being together. Of not holding someone’s hand. Of going to events and weddings and parties alone. Of not having someone to share a bottle of wine with. I’m tired of being apart.

I’m excited to see Q. To spend a Saturday night curled up on the sofa watching a movie together. To cook dinner. To sleep in late and eat breakfast in bed. To find the joy in going to Bed, Bath and Beyond on a Sunday. To eat ice cream even when it’s -10 degrees out. To play in the snow. To run together. To laugh at all of our favorite shows. I just want him back.

I’m  counting down the days.

I started reading your blog because of the deployment stuff–my boyfriend is currently deployed too–and I just want to say it has been very helpful to read about someone else’s experience with deployment. I can definitely relate to what you’re going through. It has been nice to read your blog and realize someone else understands and is feeling exactly what I’m feeling (it’s good to know those emotions aren’t crazy, haha). I’m so excited for you and Q! You’re getting so close! (I still have a few more months to go) Hang in there!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love hearing other people feel the same too! Sometimes I feel so alone with it all and wonder how come no one else is angry/mad/ready for it to be over like I do! Hoping your time flies by and you get your man back soon! I’m counting down the days for mine! xoox
