You know, it's hard being away from my hubby. I miss him a whole lot. But over the past, almost 4yrs, of being together, I've kinda just gotten used to it. It's not as hard as it used to be. Don't get me wrong, not every day is just fine and peachy, it's just gotten a little easier. Thanks to this new base we are at, he's gone more than I would like. But I think the hardest part of Brandon being gone is having Daddy gone. Kyle is getting older and realizing that Daddy is really gone. He doesn't understand that Daddy will be home in a week or in a month. He just knows Daddy isn't with us.

While we've been here in California visiting family, Kyle has asked me numerous times to go home to Daddy. Once, he even told me that Daddy was mad at him (I guess he was thinkin' since we left first, Daddy made us leave or something!). Last night, the family was watching a movie and, of course, I was sitting on the laptop internet surfing. Kyle came to me out of nowhere and said "Mama, I miss Dada", I did the usual "I know, Baby, Daddy will be home soon, ok?". But I guess that didn't cut it for him. He started crying! It wasn't whimpering either, he had tears rolling down his face. And then he wanted to go to bed. Aye! That little boy sure knows how to make my heart hurt.

Thank you, Babe, for working and supporting me and the kids. I know it isn't easy being away and having to miss out on so much, but we definitely appreciate you! You take great care of us, and we love you so much. Time can't go by soon enough!!

Awww, I'm so sorry Laura. I know how painful it can be to be away from my husband for only a day. We have only spent 3 nights apart out of 4 year marriage. I could not imagine being a military wife!! :( But I'm so glad that someone is able to and that there are people serving our country. I also couldn't imagine having kids wanting their daddy. Be strong because you will be home soon with Brandon.

Oh, and yes, I'd been having problems with bloglines not updating, so a couple of weeks ago, I switched to Google Reader -- it works great! :o)

LOL, it sounded funny the way you said it, though "I'm leaving Bloglines!" hehehe
