Well my husband joined the U.S. Navy March 1st. He leaves September 9th. I sat here and thought that 6 months was a long time to be able to spend with him...boy was I wrong! Between us working and taking care of the house and my dad that was just diagnosed with Renal failure, it seems like time is just slipping away!! Its already been a month and it seems that my time with him is more important now then ever! I have never been separated for this long and I honestly dont know what I am going to do. He will be gone for 9 1/2 months. I know its hard on everyone for a loved one to leave. I just dont know what I am going to do with myself. I hate being alone. Oh welll...If anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to all of them!!!
