It’s been a while since I’ve posted on Weddingbee (I got married in June!), but I missed the community and I’ve been feeling pretty down. I got a new job across the country from where we were living. It’s a wonderful job in a field that ‘s really limited and I LOVE it. The problem is that, a week and a half after moving into our house out here, my husband had to go back to school across the country for the entire semester. He left yesterday and the next time I see him will be a weekend in October.
I know I don’t really have it that bad. I have plenty of cousins and friends with husbands in the military and I honestly don’t know how they make it through one deployment after another. It’s just that, I don’t have any friends or a support group out here yet (only been here a week). Heck, I don’t even have any furniture, really! I’m just sitting in a half empty house missing him desperately.
We’ve never really spent any time apart before, not since our first summer together. I feel like I depend on him for everything (which is really embarrassing to admit), but now I’m realizing that maybe it’s true.
Any hugs or advice out there??

Oh gosh, that sounds so lonely because your house is empty.
Are you allergic to animals?? Let’s find you a puppy to adopt!!
I don’t have any advice b/c I’m not a military girl, so I don’t know how to make it better. But I do have a hug. *HUGS*

@LeahKS: i’m so sorry that you are alone. i don’t know what i would do if my dh wasn’t here. i would be sad too.
what about a pet? you work during the day so maybe a cat. they are very self sufficient. you don’t have to let them out or walk them. you put some food and water out and scoop the box every couple of days. i had one for 18 years, they can be incredibly loyal pets.

Thanks so much for your replies!! I really appreciate it. I actually do have a dog with me, thank goodness. She’s not the most affectionate dog in the world, but I don’t know what I’d do without her. I’d love to have a big cuddly cat too, but unfortunately my husband is allergic. We’ve been talking about getting our dog a companion dog though; we were planning to wait until the winter when my husband’s back, but now I’m thinking that maybe I should be adding another dog sooner, even if it would be more work…
