I'm not military but my husband works a job that he's away more than he is home. One of those jobs where the time of year, births, even planned vacation are made to take a back seat. (He missed DS's birth and may family vacations.) But... um... may I join you ladies? He's not home for Christmas and I'm having a really hard time with it. I thought that out of anyone, you guys may understand my stress. How do you guys do it????
