Who doesn't love to meet new friends? There's a military spouse blog hop happening over at Riding the Roller Coaster. Mil Spouses, head on over to realize you're not the only one slowing going crazy during deployment. Non mil spouses, check it out if you like to watch other people slowly go crazy over a 6 month span :-)
I'm Stephanie. Wife to a submariner and mom to two little boys (a two year old who tests my patience on an hourly basis and a 4 month old who is growing up way too quickly and will be testing my patience on an hourly basis before I know it).
This is our second deployment on a fast attack, but we have lots (8 I think) of underways under our belt from the last 2 years. We've been married 3.5 years, and just remembering how fast it's all gone wears me out.
I'm a SAHM dreaming of shore duty or being able to go to the bathroom alone. No idea which one will come first though. I am a bit of a control freak and the uncertainty of the Navy drives be nuts. When we got engaged, everyone commented on how much I would love the nice, stable job Hubby had. I know better now.
I still make lots of plans. The current one is to enjoy the journey.
