I am stressed. Like really, really stressed. Like so stressed I feel like my head is going to explode. With less than two months but more than one month(wish I could give exact dates here but I can't) left until my husband deploys I have a list a mile long of things to get done. I have no family here and very few friends. Easter, Little Miss' 3rd birthday, and Little Man's 1st birthday will all be missed by my husband. I'm going to try to make these days special for my kids even if it ends up just being the 3 of us celebrating. I just want to be strong for them. I want to create a stable environment for them while he is gone because I know this will be very hard on them.
My husband is on night shift until he deploys. I'm getting little to no sleep. Little man nurses every 1-2 hours at night.
I'm exhausted, stressed, and overwhelmed. I'm pushing through.
It's amazing how we are able to find strength in ourselves when we have no other choice but to be strong.
