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.
