i expected to be alone alot, raise the children by myself alot of times, worry and concern, and happy times when he comes home, and i must say..it has lived up to this for the most part, i have missed my husband, the kids have missed him, when he is home we make the best of it. I knew it would be long deployments and hours, alot of where is daddy? and alot of single mom feelings and work. I deal with it. I also keep myself busy so that the time flies and i feel i like i am accomplishes my dreams and contributing?..so I guess thats the second question/
What do you do to keep yourself out of depression and from going crazy watching the clock on the wall and the calender(a watched pot never boils..lol)?
Is it what you expected and how do you think you are handling it? why or why not?
