It's lonely being a Navy wife sometimes
Hubby has been gone for almost 2 months now. I really miss him and feel very lonely right now. In the past, when he was deployed, I would get together with the other wives. This time is so different as he isn't deployed, I just live in a different country right now. I am bad at making friends. I have friends, but not the kind I hang out with on a regular basis, you know? I really need that right now, but my really good friends live too far away. It's Friday night and I just wish I had someone to hang out with, drink some coffee, watch some movies, whatever. I guess I am just in a state of self pity. I have been so emotional lately, I just want to cry at everything. Yesterday I gave my notice at work. It is still a few months away, but they need to be able to find a good replacement. It was so hard to do. I walked into my supervisor's office, gave her the letter, and then had to rush out because I was about to start sobbing. I have never had this hard of a time leaving a job, and I have left quite a few. I love where I work, and the people I work with are awesome. We find something to laugh about everyday, and that is so important. It is required for good health to laugh I think. Without laughter, where is the joy and happiness in life? Maybe we will come back here and I can work for them again. My boss called me in his office to tell me how sad he is to see me go and that if I come back they will welcome me back there. That is nice to hear. I guess I should stop this pity party and be grateful for a good experience.
