My husband is currently deployed to Afghanistan with VAQ-134. We have two kids under the age of three and this is our second deployment. His last deployment I missed him from day one. I layed in bed and cried for the first hour after he had left. I missed his company, sleeping next to him, hugs, kisses, the whole 9 yards. This time around though, I just really indifferant. I miss him in a way. I know I love him and want him home again, but I don't actually feel like I miss him. I don't get sad or lonely, I don't even really think much about the fact that he's gone. When he gets a chance to call me, we don't even have much to say to each other than "just another day." Most of the time it's 5 min of dead air while both of us do something else, paperwork, dishes, whatever. Is it wrong that I can't miss my husband this time? If anything it is making me feel guilty that I don't. I just need to know if anyone else out there is either in the same boat or has some kind of explination so I don't feel like there is something wrong with me.
