VENTING! my husband travels too much and I'm feeling sorry for myself!

[[/U]Okay, I just had to get that off of my chest. My daughters are going to wake up soon and while they were sleeping I made enough enchiladas to feed the neighborhood. I thought I was going to go to my inlaws and bring them dinner but they are busy with the other grandkids. Now I am just feeling sorry for myself that it's just me and the kiddo's again. Anyone else by themselves alot?

Yep... us military moms know exactly how you feel. It stinks and when I get days like that, I slow it down to take just an hour at a time. I've gotten pretty good at finding stuff for me and the kids to do.

Good luck mama and lots of to you!

Yup...I feel you...after 13 mos of dh not being here, going through an entire pregnancy, having my oldest start kindergarten, my middle one turning one, all these milestones and he's missed them. I feel you mama, and it's rough, but hang in there!

Yes, hard not to feel sorry for ourselves when hubby is gone too much!! I get mine home for the weekend, and it is a happy thing! But seems like I'm always preparing myself for long lonely days ahead
