My Husband Is Leaving Me...Make Him Stop!

So I know I have not updated in awhile other than a few pictures. Our life has changed recently and I just haven't gotten around to blogging about it. I don't think I put an actual post together to announce it but hubby was laid off in January. Since he is the bread winner of the family, that truly sucked. I went out and got a job...not a great one but it was bringing home a little bit. He searched the internet for jobs every day and received unemployment. This went on for several weeks. He got many leads but nothing ever panned out. We discussed things with our landlord and he very nice and was willing to cut us some slack with our rent. Mid February, hubby got a lead and luckily it came through before we went completely under. March 1st he started his new job. A pretty good job since it's closer by an hour drive than his last place that was over 2 hours away. So you would think life is all fine and dandy now...right? Wrong!!!
My husband is leaving me next week. Monday to be exact. And just where is he going you ask? ( at least if there was anyone out there still reading this blog you would be asking) He is deploying to Afghanistan as a government contractor. WOOHOO. Oh, right...THAT STINKS!!! was what I really meant. I know that we really needed him to get this job. I know that he will be fine over there and come home safely. I know that the kids and I won't really kill each other while he is gone. I know it will only be for the next 3-6 months. But it still totally stinks. We just got his leave date today. Kinda makes it seem real.
I am going to try to update this blog more often so on the rare occasion he will have computer access, he can see what the kids and I are up to. We don't know how often we will be able to talk or email. We really don't know much of anything yet but next week I will be a single parent. I will have to do it all. I am sooooo not looking forward to this... :-(

I am so glad that he got a job, but boo on being a single mom for 3-6 months. I did it for four days this past week and now I am sick. LOL Headache and body aches. It can wear you down. Don't be afraid to ask others for help.
