Wow, we have alot in common! We are also a homeschool family. You continued on my thought quite well We are always available for when DH/daddy comes home, to spend quality time with a HAPPY man! I actually am enjoying the time apart, just like the old marine wife times, I start to be more self sufficient, and really look deep inside to learn more about myself. My girls get a more independent mommy, and that is always a good role model. I really do think this was the best career move for him, I was quite disappointed when he chose to leave the Corps, but he had a nasty commanding officer that was a bitter, crusty old bastard, that was out to ruin his career for the heck of it! After 8 successful years without a bad mark on his record. It was a very hard decision, but I married him with the promise of always standing by him.
Anyway, thanks for the support I definitely will need all I can get.
