My DB has officially left for his deployment. The first day I was a wreck, but I think as the days go by I am feeling progressively better. Spending time with his family, my family, and friends is helping. Going to work also helps settle me into a routine while he is gone. At the same time though, there are definitely times when I feel down. It has only been a few days since he left, but it feels like much longer. When I think that I will have to deal with this for 50 more weeks (ish), it just becomes a little overwhelming. I know tons of you can relate.

Are there any ladies out there who are just beginning a deployment who need / want a deployment buddy? It would be nice to have someone to chat with. Also if anyone is located in Orlando, would love to meet up! I only know one other army SO in my area so would be great to meet more if you're out there!
