This past weekend I got to go visit my husband who is currently at Camp Shelby, MS with the Iowa National Guard before he deploys to Afghanistan. He had a 4 day pass and needless to say both of us had been looking forward to it.
We went to New Orleans for a day and then spent the rest of the time relaxing in Gulfport/Biloxi. Unfortunately now the un-fun part, coming home and getting back to reality.
I've been using the analogy of the post-Christmas hangover feeling. While I'm happy I got to see him and lord knows I needed a break from the kids and everyday grind, it has been really, really hard to get over saying good-bye again.
Anybody have any tips on how to get back into the swing of life without feeling down that I'm still by myself for another 9 months or so?
