My husband is on block leave right now, using his vacation days before he deploys. Three guesses as to where he is right now. Yep, he's at work, just like he was yesterday and just like he will be tomorrow. But in civilian clothes, cuz he's on vacation. Whoopity doo. Then he gets to come home, take an economics final, and work on a group project.

You know your life is particularly stressful when the pep talk you give is, "The next few weeks are going to be insane, but you just have to make it through them. And then you leave." When deployment is the light at the end of the tunnel, you have too much on your plate.

Poor husband.

Poor Husband. And Poor Sarah, who is missing out on some extra time with him pre-deployment.

But know what? I do thank God in my prayers for people like your husband that do what needs to be done; even if it means giving up time off right before deployment. It also makes me feel more irritated that the cluster-you-know-what that could be solved if the right people where doing what they were supposed to be doing... But c'est la armie...

Please give him a back pat from me, and some kind of rotgut liquor. I don't know enough about rotgut liquor to make a suggestion, but the thought is there!

Sounds like my household at the moment. Deployment isn't at the end of the tunnel, but the work hours are atrocious because of upcoming inspections. He basically comes home to sleep a few hours, then go back to work.
