Well, the past few weeks have been anything but ordinary that's for sure. I'm getting out there and meeting other moms (I moved back home for deployment and for work purposes) and I'm very glad to be back home and in the comforts of where I live. I am getting my real estate off the ground by already listing and selling homes, and I love my job. I've been busy with volunteering for Kiwanis and hopefully going to be getting involved with other clubs as well. I love giving back to my community that has given me so much. Between volunteering, staying busy with my 2 year old, and work it's helping me cope with deployment.
Just because this is deployment #3 doesn't mean that it gets any easier. In fact it seems to get harder the more we go through this deployment. My 2 year old is constantly asking where daddy is and when she sees me on my laptop she immediately thinks daddy is on there. She misses him so much and it kills me. The only way I've found to cope with this so far is to just cry but it's hard to do that in front of her. I want to be strong for her because she doesn't grasp the concept of the fact daddy is overseas.
One thing is for sure no matter how many deployments you go through it doesn't get easier because each deployment brings a new set of challenges. That is why life is always a climb :-)
