Mid Tour Leave
My DH asked me a question last night. Do I want him to come home on a mid tour leave, or do I want him to save the leave for the end of his tour.
I couldn't believe this question at the time. He said that he wouldn't actually get to come home any earlier, but that he would have more time off to spend with me when he got home.
This of course was not the whole story behind the question. He said that he can see how hard it is on me right now, when he's not even gone yet. He said he doesn't want to put me through him leaving again.
I don't know what to tell him. Of COURSE I want him to come home, but is it going to make it harder on him to leave again when, not if, I fall apart as he walks out the door again?
