So my amazing hunk of a husband is gone.
Today my hubby officially left to Ft. Huachuca, Arizona for almost five months. This sucks, why? Because for starters I hate being alone, my family is all the way in Puerto Rico, I rarely have friends here and to top it off I am afraid of the dark; so I’ll be having long nights. Aren’t I such a nagger lol.
There are no words that can express how terribly I will miss him; since we’ve been married we haven’t gone through any type of separation just field trips which can be up to two weeks but thank God no deployments. I have to keep reminding myself that it’s only 5 months, that this will benefit us in the future and most important that there’s so many other military families going through so much more such as deployments.
To recap today’s good bye, we drove my husband to the airport. We sat around, joked with my brother-in-law, and held on to each other as tight as possible since we knew that it would be awhile before we could hold each other again. At around 3:30 pm, they started boarding and it was officially time to say goodbye, I tried to hold myself together and not shed a single tear but it was impossible. He walked to towards the gate we hugged, kissed, cried and then he waved goodbye.
As soon as I got into my car, my brother in law had to drive because I had a Niagara Falls of tears. I’m too emotional and for every little thing I cry so I knew this would happen. Once I got home I realized that my husband loves what he does and I’m so proud of him. This is only a temporary separation with many more to come. This is the life we chose. With each sad goodbye there is an amazing hello to look forward to and that is what will be getting me through this obstacle. Distance will not affect our love and this amazing life we have built together so far.

I love you baby and I’ll see you in January!!! Good luck and remember you got this!!!
