Again and Again

Really, just one again.

We just found out that Big Daddy has to deploy for six months. Again. This time to a location significantly less desirable than last time.

Wanna know what's the same as last time? He's missing a lot of very important holidays. As a matter of fact, all of them.

He's going to miss Baby C's first birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Eve, Brother's birthday, Valentine's Day, President's Day, our anniversary and I'm sure there are a few more that I'll think of between now and then.

It's pretty short notice so we have very little time to prepare and a lot to do.

In short, this sucks.

However, I've come to terms with it. For the moment. Five minutes ago? Not so much. Five minutes from now? No guarantees.


  1. I'm so sad to read this. I can only imagine how hard it is, especially with small children. I just stopped and prayed for you and your family. Hang in there sweet friend.


  2. oh, hugs. hugs, hugs, hugs. Praying for you. And your man.

  3. Oh man...I am so sorry. This just stinks.

    I will be thinking of you all as you prepare and deal with the coming months.

    Many hugs and much love.

  4. oh Heather, that just stinks!!! Sending virtual hugs your way :(

  5. Oh girl, my heart is heavy. I don't blame you for being emotional. PLEASE let me know if there is anything we can do to help you out. I know we aren't THAT close... but if you need anything....

    And let's try to get together again soon after he leaves, if you're up for it. Even around the holidays...

    We will be gone at Thanksgiving but will be around at Christmas time.


  6. Elaine just gave me the link to your blog--my honey leaves tomorrow morning :( I'm devastated, a crying mess and well, this definitely sucks for us both, hun.

    I'm here for you if you need to talk--my husband will be gone for 6 months, too...he will be missing so much.

    Prayers, hugs and love being sent your way.

  7. Love you girl! You know you are in my thoughts!!
