Tick Tock…

The Clock is ticking….

I am a newlywed Navy Wife going through my first deployment ever.

I’m not ready & I’m in denial (I think)

Deployment is getting closer and closer, inspections are much more frequent and I see nothing of Josh at all.

Josh and I have been married for almost 5 months now. Tomorrow is our 1 year anniversary, and he will be gone to duty. I miss him so much. He is my best friend, my everything. He makes me so happy and makes everything so much more bearable. He is my go-to person when things go wrong, my rock, just so much for me. 

I should be upset and moping and maybe it’s because it isn’t soon enough, but all I can think of is moving our apartment, making sure we are settled, that the home & pets are taken care of, and trying to make sure that I can take care of everything before he leaves. I haven’t cried yet. It hasn’t hit me fully yet. I am not sure.

How do you deal with time away (7 months for us) from the person who gets your through each day?

Is it bad that I am not upset yet?

Maybe it will hit me in the coming months. Will I notice a month ahead of time, a week? How long until it hits me, if it does? How do you cope with that?

  1. I’m all ears if you ever need to vent. The first deployment is the hardest, but they never get easier. I have it a little easier, since I was in the military when I met my husband. I understand the lingo a little better and the life a little more. If you ever need ears there are wives around who have been there!
