Almost the weekend – what’s my soldier doing?
I remember, while either of my soldiers was deployed, wondering what they were doing. Like most of us, I used to look at my watch and figure out the time wherever they were. At the time, I wasn’t blogging – while our son was in Baghdad I was only up to emailing, hadn’t discovered the blogosphere. Anyway – I always wondered what he or his dad were doing (dad was in Bosnia). Weekends were harder, I didn’t have work/school to think about – ok, so I was avoiding homework! – and I kept hoping for calls.
How about you? How are you coping with wondering? Let us know, Let other parents know any good coping mechanisms!
