I'm tired.
I'm tired of sleeping alone.
I'm tired of putting on a happy face for everyone.
I'm tired of pretending I'm fine.
I'm tired of missing my husband like crazy.
I'm tired of being a single parent.
I'm tired of being the only one to discipline kids.
I'm tired of making dinner 7 nights a week.
I'm tired of having to do yard work.
I'm tired of feeling the like the 3rd wheel with friends.
I'm tired of watching my friends kiss and show affection to each other.
I'm tired of not having the time or energy to go to the gym.
I'm tired of listening to children whine and argue.
I'm tired of snapping at my children.
I'm tired of not being able to sleep.
I'm tired of feeling like I'm bothering someone when I need help.
I'm tired not being able to get into a routine.
I'm tired of being tired.
I'm tired of this stupid deployment.

I couldn't agree more, I hate not sleeping next to you and the monster G gave me just isn't cutting it. However, it will be over before we know it. Keep your chin up and that beautiful smile in place. Love you mean it.

awwww, truthfully told. It is exhausting isn't it? The effects of deployment trickle into every corner of our world. Mentally, physically, emotionally draining. There WILL be an end to it, even though it seems so far away. Remember, today is not one more day you've been apart from him, it's one more day closer to seeing him again :) Chin up :)

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
