Mhmm. Agreed. We all get though only the best way we know how, head down, trudging through and when we finally start to forget that we’re Wonder Womaning, someone comes along to remind you how hard it is. It’s a rough situation, and it’s not for everyone, we can do this, and end up far better and more appreciative of our time for it! You’ll be alright!
Julie, I totally agree. I have gotten that “I could never do it” or “I don’t know how you do it” from people, and I think “You love your husband, right? So YES, you could do it.” Maybe that is snarky of me to think, but everything you’ve written is true.
Hang in there!! You are doing a great job! *Hugs*

Yep… you do what you’ve got to do to get it done. When my husband was gone for a 6 week assignment, our son had just turned 11 months and within the first week of his departure our hot water heater exploded and day care caught on fire. In addition, a lot of crap was going on at my job. Toward the end of the 6 weeks I just needed to vent and get it out of my system. Well, the person on the receiving end, who was supposed to be my best friend, says “I knew you wouldn’t be able to handle all that.” What?? That is why following blogs like yours really do help to know that other military spouses aren’t Superwomen and I just can’t cut it. We’re all just trying to get through our day

I’ve heard people say that line too, and while I do think most mean it as a compliment (or just to have something to say maybe?), it does sting sometimes too. Love the way you explained it here. You have been in my prayers lately, Julie!!
