    Nothing can bring me down right now! Even though the past week has been very hard, but it has been helping to talk about him as much as possible so it is like he is still here in thought! I wore an ARMY STRONG tee shirt and my Spanish Professor (who was in the Army for 22 years...

    What Really Grinds My Gears

    Ladies, Just because your man is away doesnt mean that you exactly have to be super girl, Do not lie to him about your feelings. Don't supress things that bother you until he comes home. And dont be overly worried about stressing him out. BREATHE! It is ok to show some emotion...
