I have written a couple of posts on how it is hard to be separated from my husband, even for a night, when last year at this time he was frequently gone overnight. He ran ranges for transition teams and they were often 24 hour ranges. There were many nights when I was alone. Yet, when they stopped I stopped getting used to them and now I get lonely when my husband isn't here to go to bed with me. It is funny what you forget and what you learn to live with as an army wife!!
When he deploys I will be longing for the just weeklong separations. It's just how the army life goes.
But seriously, it isn't like this is something new since they have started training for deployment. I just forgot is all.
