    10/26 Now Its 10/29

    If the distance between us wasn't hard enough, I can't even begin the countdown until he comes home. He told me he was deploying Friday, now they have switched it to Monday. I haven't seen him in over 4 weeks, and I won't see him until he comes back. As awful as it sounds, I...
