First Deployment

How I felt during the 6 months Mike was away for a deployment.

  1. Surviving the Trials and Tribulations of my First Deployment...

    It is amazing how a year can change things so drastically in relationships, especially military relationships. Sometimes for the good and other times for the bad. I know this first hand....

    If you read some of my previous blogs, I had just met my boyfriend in September 2011. I found out about a month into the relationship that in exactly 6 months, he was going to be deployed for 6 months, but I didn't care. I liked this guy so much that I knew if I really wanted it to work, then ...

    So clearly, my goal of writing a blog everyday didn't work. I guess that's what happened when you start a new job as your significant other gets deployed!

    Well, let me update you on what has been going on! My job is beyond stressful and I travel atleast twice a week (hence why I have completely forgotten about this).

    Mike has about 8 weeks left in his deployment (probably a little less). I am beyond excited because I can finally say I am past the halfway mark and ...

  3. Adjusting..

    Hey there!!!! It's been a few days since my last post and I must say, I am feeling much better. Easter was much harder than I expected so I just needed a few days to "recoup" so to say. This week has been better. I have been able to talk to Mike a lot. I have already started looking for a home, so it felt so good to be able to update him on that and get his feedback.

    I miss him terrible and while I have had a good week, I still have my moments of weakness, like any ...

  4. Day 5: Today was a better day!

    by , 04-01-2012 at 11:04 PM
    Today was seemingly a good day. Last night I went to bed with such anxiety and sadness because I just had one of those days where I missed Mike so much (I think I smelled his towels and clothes for over an hour lol).

    I got up today and forced myself to get some things done, get ready for work tomorrow, cook and the day went by pretty fast. I was also fortunate enough to actually speak to Mike for about 20 minutes. I made sure to try and keep things as positive as possible because ...

  5. Day 4: It hasn't gotten any easier...

    by , 03-31-2012 at 05:25 PM
    Well, its been a few days since he left and I have to admit, it hasn't gotten any easier. Luckily, I have spoken to him since he has arrived and it has eased my mind a little. He is lucky because the deployment he is on isn't your typical deployment. He is staying on a villa in Saudi Arabia, has his own room and bathroom, internet access in his room. So again, that eases my mind a little. It has been so hard not being able to hear his voice or send a text message and talk to him whenever I ...
