I just found this circle of moms last night, I'm so glad this exists! Is anyone in the Army in Florida, say near Daytona Beach, Palm Coast, St. Augustine or JAX? We will be alone for 3 weeks for the first time while my husband goes to Australia with his Unit. Then he'll be put with a unit in Eustis, FL that deploys in January, I would love to meet anyone who has support, or anyone near me that I could visit. I'm a little nervous...

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Quoting Shonda:

i dont live in Fl but i just want to tell u to relax . YOU CAN DO THIS!! JUST KEEP BUSY AND THE TIME WILL GO BY A LITTLE FASTER. AND IT OK TO MISS HIM,CRY AND EVEN BE MAD IT'S ALL APART OF THE PROCESS.
I can say this because i am a mother of three 5,3,and2 and they are a hand full and we are at the half point if a six month deployment.



Wow, thanks Shonda. What do you do to keep busy?  I thought that was the right thing to do.  I just happened to land an at home job typing in the city I live in.  It doesn't come around very often. So I jumped on it.  I"m a night owl so I can work at night.   Last night was my first night.  I"m in a new house and its BIG and I was hearing all kinds of noises.  After the kids went to bed it was a little hard, but I was so exhausted I ended up falling asleep.  I heard that someone went to Build a Bear and had their husband put his voice in one of the animals.  That would really help mine.  Thanks for the encouragement!
