    You Know Your Soldier Is Deployed When....

    1. You wear old sweatpants and sweatshirts to bed.

    2. You can watch whatever you want on TV without arguing with him first.

    3. You get up in the middle of the night to check your e-mail or you stay on the computer all night waiting for them to get on.

    4. You sleep with your cell phone incase he calls in the middle of the night.

    5. You love watching cute love movies because it reminds you of all the cute things he does when he's home.

    6. You haven't shaved your legs in weeks.

    7. The mailman knows you because you are always out waiting for him to come.

    8. You start paying close attention in class when the words "military" or "Iraq" are mentioned.

    9. You suddenly have an obsession with anything military related.

    10. You see someone wearing an Army, Navy, or USMC shirt and you get this overwhelming urge to talk to them.

    11. You make friends with strangers online just because they are in the same situation as you and are the only ones that can truly understand what you are going through.

    12. You can't decide what to wear when you meet him at the airport because his flight comes in at a ridiculous hour in the morning and you want to look cute, but not too cute, because your cutest outfit you want to save for your first full day together.

    13. Your first Christmas together is.... apart.

    14. You find yourself checking your e-mail every fifteen minutes. (hah more like every 5!!!)

    15. You know all the time differences between where you are and Afghanistan, Iraq, Ireland, Kuwait, Italy, Germany, Korea, and every state in the U.S.

    16. The highlight of your day is getting a letter that was mailed a month ago.

    17. And if you don't get a letter, the highlight of your day is writing him a letter that you know he will be able to read in a month.

    18. You realize that HOMECOMING is so much more than a football game.

    19. You want to hit any happy couple you see together.

    20. You get excited about "unknown" phone numbers calling you

    21. You've exhausted every idea a brain could have of what to put in a box.

    22. You see a "support our troops" sticker on a car when you are stuck in traffic and you find yourself guessing about who they know that is deployed and thinking about their entire life story.

    23. When the clock says 11:11, you find yourself wishing for the same thing every time: a call from your soldier.

    24. You get excited when its only 9 months until you see your soldier instead of 12!

    25. You can't stand girls that talk about missing their boyfriends who live a few hours away. You just want to yell "drive and go see them them" because if you had the chance, you would jump on the first plane to go see your soldier no matter how far it is.

    26. You don't know what teams are on top for football, basketball, etc.

    27. You wouldn't dream of walking out of the house without the cell phone and every number you have is forwarded to that cell.

    28. You find yourself randomly crying from just looking at a picture of the two of you together.

    29. You find yourself randomly crying and you sometimes have no idea why.

    30. You stay on the Internet for hours searching for anything and everything about the military.

    31. You talk to your friends about him so much that they know his full name, birthday and even his favorite color.

    32. You are reading this and smiling and nodding because you know it's so true!

    33. You sleep with his favorite blanket so often it's starting to smell less like him and more like your perfume.

    Most of these are super cute and true. I can relate even though we're LDR now. I remember how deployment was though.

    THIS IS SO TRUE!!! Heck, I've been on the computer for 1 hr 1/2 just waiting for him to get on hahaha

    funny story:
    I am in physical therapy right now for a herniated disc in my neck and the other day i was on traction and my phone beeped and i (totally forgetting i was in this contraption) jumped up to get it, in the process being whipped back down and completely breaking it... hahaha well not completely, they fixed it, i just messed it up. DEFINITELY had to explain why i had jumped... after that i heard every woman's story about THEIR hubby or bf or whatever and when they deployed... it was sweet...

    There's only two I can't relate to, and that's the one about smacking happy couples and yelling at people to go see their DB's.

    Other than that, totally did all of those things when DB was deployed.
