Deployment

We finally got the news we've been dreading...
My husband has to leave us for many months in a couple weeks, to serve his first deployment on his Ship. We'd been waiting ever since we first heard we'd be moved to Norfolk, on when/if it would happen, and here it is. At least we still get a couple more weeks before he has to go, but I still don't want it to happen!

Though, the way he broke the news to me made me want to slap him, lol.
I was napping on the couch and Nina was asleep in her playpen next to me, and he came home and woke me up, looking all sad and puppy-eyed, and told me he'd gotten port call today. I asked when he'd have to go, and he told me Tomorrow, at 6pm. Needless to say, I was quite unhappy, and about to cry, and then he said he was just kidding, but that he did get port call, but he wanted to soften the blow. What a dingbat!

          I would have smacked him! Lol
          I'm sorry to hear that. It's hard even if you are expecting it. That's great you get a few more weeks though. Do you know how long he will be gone?
