Deployment thoughts, weekly wrap up

Weekly Wrap up 3/13-First week down, ?? to go!

This marks the first week we’ve gotten through with my husband being gone.  Ok, tomorrow is technically one week, but who’s counting.
To say the week was hard, is an understatement.  With as much as my husband travels, I thought that this truly would be easier. But it’s not.  And more days than not last week I wondered how on earth I would get through this next year without him?
I don’t want to cook, don’t want to work out, don’t want to even watch the shows he and I watch together because honestly it just hurts.  I attempted Sunday supper last night to try and get back to our normal routine, and the emptiness of my husband’s chair made it painful to even eat.  We all feel his absence, and it’s hard to even put into words the raw ache I feel in my chest.
So here a few highlights of my week.
Does drinking wine alone make mean I have an issue?  LOL…The kids and the dog are in the house so it doesn’t count as drinking alone, right?  HA!

I worked out, ONCE last week.  And was sore for 2 days afterwards, LOL.  #outofshape

The girls and I got to Facetime with my hubby and it was GREAT.  We went out to eat to celebrate Saturday night. Ok, I just didn’t want to cook.

My youngest also got her first slide phone.  With the recent nanny issues, and my husband being gone, I just wanted to be able to communicate with her at all times.  Call it paranoia?  Normally I wouldn’t allow a cell phone until middle school, but I think this time my change of mind is warranted.

My hubby sent me a selfie of him and one of his troops.  LOVE!!

How do you get back in to a routine after a traumatic event? What age did your kids get cell phones?
