MIss You Already

My husband is going to be deployed in a few months and I miss him already. He spends so much time training and working on base that I barely ever see him. I feel like I would miss him less if I just went home cause then I wouldn't have to tuck him into bed every night, foregoing conversation for his sake and pretend like I'm perfectly fine. If I was home he would make an effort to call me occasionally and we would talk more often than we do know. I can't say these things to him because they are unhappy selfish thoughts and not fair to him so I am venting them to you. If you have any advice it would be greatly appreciated. Also I am having a hard time making friends on this military base. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I think you need and deserve to have your needs met too. This is the time that you're going to have to look back and to cherish while he's deployed. Maybe instead of getting into a big discussion about it you could just plan some fun but simple things for the two of you to do together. Explain to him that you're building memories from you can both draw over your time apart. Whether it's going bowling, or to a park, or for a drive to get an ice cream cone....the where and the how doesn't matter, it's just the act of getting you out of the house for some together time!
