Aw, hugs! I would just save the gift box until you see him. I suggest what I’ve seen some military couples do – “move” valentine’s day to a day when you both will be together and do all the Valentine’s things like exchange heart box chocolates and wear red lingerie on that day instead!

My husband is deploying over V-Day, too. He’ll be gone 3-4 weeks.

@MissCalifornia:  Shitty. On the bright side you’re used to some distance. Skype at weird times and get him to bring you back some cool stuff!!

@MissCalifornia:  He’s usually pretty safe. He is an aircrewman and intelligence, so they don’t go anywhere “dangerous”, he generally stays in the US, but still, I hate when he’s gone. He is gone so often. His deployments average a month, but he’ll only be home roughly two weeks before he deploys again.

Aww, I’m so sorry!  But you’ll get through this, you’re a tough girl! I love Garnety’s idea about having your own V-Day when you’re together again!

It really won’t be so bad – I’m often overseas on research (7-9 hours ahead) for a month or more and it passes much more quickly than you’d think. The time difference will be annoying but you’ll be able to skype here and there and email a bit. And he can definitely bring you back something neat. And it’s only 3 weeks, so by the time he gets back, it’ll be close to your visit.

Well, bedtime for you will be wakeup time for him, and vice versa. Why not set skype dates for those times?

I know what you’re going through to a certain extent! My FI has been gone to Vietnam & Indonesia since January 6th. It was supposed to be 3 weeks and has now been stretched longer. He’s hopefully going to be back on March 7th.

We have a 12 hour time difference so usually we try to be online between 7-8 pm my time and 7-8 am his time. We’re able to talk about 1 hour a day but we also email each other.

Some days are longer than others but 3 weeks will go by quick!! 🙂
