I can't believe my husband has almost been home for a month.

I also can't believe that he will deploy again in about 25 weeks, and he came home with a training schedule last night showing that he will be gone for nine of those weeks. So much for dwell time. We now have this ridiculous calendar which is an overlay of his training and my fertility.

Also, I've been chuckling that my husband's branch is supposed to alternate between a combat deployment and a non-combat one. His combat one was Iraq; his upcoming non-combat one is being attached to the Navy SEALs in Afghanistan. Cuz that makes total sense.

But now we can't stop saying it in that voice. You know the one I mean.

lol. That voice is hilarious.

Sorry to hear he's deploying again so soon, and that he's got so much in the field training before then. That's really frustrating, especially when ttc.

*hugs* Sarah.

I can't believe in a few hours it'll be exactly four weeks since the moment we were all waiting for. The memory of uncertainty is still too fresh.

I was worried about you then, and I'll be worried about you for the next six months as you struggle with a different kind of uncertainty.

We're right about there with you on the timeframe. And yes, it kills me that MacGyver will be gone a large portion of the "dwell time" too. Gah.

Hugs to you, my friend.

Wow so the government likes to keep things complicated for you?
