My hubz is in the military and was called yesterday for 4 weeks of training. I can't sleep at all.... I'm missing him sooooo much.

You know what. Sometimes you just don't realize how much you love somebody until they go away for a while.... I knew I loved him, but I realize now how much I love him.

I miss him while trying to sleep, because he's not with me. He generally sleeps almost over me, hugging me tight. Even though we have a big bed, we use only 1/4 of it, because he's always on my side. I used to complain and push him away because I needed space to sleep. Now, when he's away I can't sleep because I have too much space.

He generally wakes up way early (4am - he's got to leave for work at 5am) while I'm still fast asleep. Makes sure I'm not cold and puts his blanket over me too. Then he showers, shaves, and then showers me with kisses while I'm sleeping. And I shoo him for disturbing my sleep. But now, I wake up in the morning all sad because he isn't here to kiss me.

I miss my bunny hon. Counting days for him to come back......

I feel for all fellow VJers who are staying apart from their spouses. I pray pray and pray more to Almighty God to give you peace and the strength to face these unhappy times and God will definitely bring you all together very soon.

To the OP...I'm sure you've heard the words "hang in there".

Best thing to do is find some things that occupy your time, so you're not thinking about your spouse all the time. Maybe a new hobby or a project around the house.

The worst thing to do is think about how much you miss your spouse. If you're having trouble sleeping, maybe some warm milk, or even some popcorn before bed could help.

Natty, I hope you're having a great day. (F)

Actually I'm having a great day ... care to join me? Or do you want to continue the sugar coating?

Brian, I apologize if you are offended by my being nice to you and other people. Glad you're having a super day. (F)

It must be nice to have a spouse that returns home every night. Many people don't as their spouse has a job that demands otherwise.

Different lifestyles ... different careers ... some have to be away from home many days and couples learn to adapt. It's understood it happens and the tolerance for those who have issues with separation for only a few days/weeks as compared to others with much greater times apart is a matter of degrees. Those people who have long separations learn to deal, create hobbies, make friends, cherish the moments together and move on. Otherwise ... they complain as life is "so unfair", seek sympathy from others, and have a miserable life. I'm not being hard ... only suggesting to be happy with what you have and learn to adapt.

yes I am quite aware of this.. and I wasn't complaining about missing my husband while he is at work... just stating a fact... I miss him when he is gone.. nothing wrong with that...

I am well aware that some people don't get the privilege of coming home every night.. I grew up the daughter of a trucker so I have first hand experience with that...

*M* ...

just making a generic comment ... didn't mean to place it toward you. Just that the thread gave it a natural lean ... if you know what I mean :luv:
