Cue the Carmen Sandiego music…
Where in the world is my soldier??? 🙂 The sucky thing about going back home is they often get stuck in other cities before making it back to their FOB’s. One of my FH’s fellow soldiers was stuck for an ENTIRE WEEK! The great thing about it is that he has access to a USO where he is at, so he can use his laptop and hop online for a while.
We tried to Skype it last night and for a while it worked, but it eventually kept kicking him off so we nixed it. I knew the first time I saw his face on the computer it would be tough…and it was. It wasn’t tough to the point I would lose my HOOAH and have a breakdown, it was just hard to go from having him within my touch to seeing him on a computer screen. It’s the wierdest feeling. So close to so far. I was glad to see him, but I’ll admit…I could hardly look at his face. I kinda kept my eyes glued onto the keyboard and glanced at him every now and then. I’ll get used to it once he’s back on base but that first time was kinda tough. I wonder if any of the other wives and gf’s have experienced the same thing?
The two weeks we had together were again, nothing short of amazing. I realize with every passing moment how blessed I am. I wouldn’t trade this life for anything. I know I’m a newbie to it and coming from no prior military background, it’s a HUGE adjustment. As I’ve said before, most people don’t understand and never will but my soldier and I WILL make it through anything as long as we have each other.
