    I just started school back

    so I'm so busy and stressed. I work 40 hrs and go to school part time. It makes it easier though when dealing with missing him because I feel I have bigger things to worry about that be depressed that he can't be here if that makes sense

    My husband's 21st birthday is tomorrow!

    He's deployed and not in any port right now so he'll be "celebrating" on the ship. I absolutely hate missing all of these special days normal couples would be able to spend together!
