Hello! :)Okay so I'm not technically an Air Force girlfriend anymore, lol. But when I was apart of this group (when my husband was in boot camp/tech school) I made SO many great friends from it. I've yet to find an "I Am An Air Force Wife" page with as much activity as this one! Hope y'all don't mind :)
I re-joined this site to make some new best friends that know exactly what I'm going through and to vent to ladies that actually know what being apart of this lifestyle is like! Every time I try to talk to my friends about it they literally have nothing to say. Which, I mean, I guess that kind of understandable cause they don't know what it's like but still! Plus, they all pretty much ditched me when they found out I was pregnant with my son at 18. But, here's my story (sorry if it's a little long):
My husband just got home in December from a 7 month tour in Afghanistan and he's getting ready to go back out the door again to Kuwait for another 6 months (tomorrow). This second tour was voluntary however and I'll tell you why: We are the parents of a beautiful 3 month old baby boy (yup, he was a deployment baby!) and this deployment will give us enough money to be financially comfortable. Although it really SUCKS that he's leaving again after missing basically my entire pregnancy and the birth of his son, we both decided it was for the best. Yeaa, he'll miss another 6 months but that will give us a very long time with him being home after he gets back.
It's just gonna be difficult because now I'm actually used to him being home and helping me with the baby. Before, it was just me so I was used to doing all the work. (He didn't meet his son until he was 7 weeks old) Now I have to get readjusted to that again. But it's only 6 months, that's not that bad. Right...?
I look forward to talking to you ladies and hopefully making some new friends too! :)
