I'm Scared

Hi my name is Cristy, I've been a Marine wife for 12 years.  My husband is going on his 3rd deployment and I don't know if I can do this again...We have 2 beautiful kids Melanie is 9 and JJ is 2, we need him home we just bought a house last September and I don't know if I can keep up with everything all by myself.  I've lived in apartments before so it was easy to call maintenance if something went wrong.  I'm scared!

3rd depolyment wow i would love to know how you did it. keeping up with the house can be frustrating but easy if you have everything organized. I like to file everything like bills receipts and bank statements in a file cabinet or folder this helps if you need to return something or figure out which bills to pay fisrt like water and stuff and also keep tabs opn where ur moneys going. with the kids and the house a handy to do list is great and scedual for everything like school sports practices or classes house work dinner basically the key is to be organized. My husband wants to stay in for 20 or more years IDK IF I CAN DO IT WITHOUT GOING INSANE. i would love any advice u may have for me he is going through his mos schooling right now and i would like to know what to expect for living on base and how to deal with deployment if you can.
