Our 'leave' already LEFT.


OK this is SO not fair!  Hubby came home last night for what was SUPPOSED to be his pre-deployment leave, and now I find out I only get him for 3 days.  Then he's gone for 4 or 5 days, then I get 3 more days with him before he's gone for the remainder of his last week in the states.


We made the best of today, but I am so upset about this that I may lose it and get all emotional about this, potentially ruining the next 2 days we have together.  Not that it is his fault or anything, but I tend to take stuff out on whomever is within range.

I don't like to get political on my blog, facebook, or anything else, but I kind of feel that this is just like the angry TEA party folks who are already paying close to 50% taxes, and they finally come to terms with "I have to find a way to LIVE off what I have left" and then someone comes in and, oh, I don't know, say passes some RIDICULOUSLY expensive health care bill that promises to plunder what little income they DO have left......

Seriously, Uncle Sam, I just don't think I have any more to give!  You are already taking my husband away from me at a very crucial time in our lives - and now I can't even have a proper GOODBYE?!?!

I CAN'T AFFORD THIS.  Just like angry taxpayers are revolting over the things they're being forced to pay for, that this country CAN'T AFFORD, I literally just CAN'T do this.

I'm not saying "I don't want to" (although I DON'T) I am saying I CAN'T!  So, where's my demonstration?  My picket signs?  My media soundbite?

This just f-ing sucks.

OH MY GOD.........
Literally less than a MINUTE after I posted this, the seal on my front-loading washing machine completely took a dump. Only spilled about 10 gallons of water before I caught it, but we have an UPSTAIRS laundry room, and the backup drain under the washer doesn't seem to be working. Hubby is freaking out (poking around in the garage below me to look for water damage) and I am 'babysitting' this machine through a spin cycle so I can at least empty it out and clean up the mess.
Freaking AWESOME way to spend this evening.
I'm talking serious QUALITY time here, folks!

Oh Gaile!! My heart goes out to you!! What is happening to you (to all of us) really sucks! Chin up, girl... we will get through this together!!

I'm so sorry to hear. We just went through a plumbing issue before my husband left too - so I know what you're going through.

Hang in there, try to get settled into a new routine fairly quickly and keep busy. That's what I've been trying to do anyway....

I'm sorry, even though I know that brings no comfort.
