This is a little out of character for me, but I need to get this out, it’s 3 am, and I just can’t sleep.
I’ll start by saying that FH and I have been LD our entire relationship, 2.5 years at this point. He’s prior military, so he always deals with it much better than I do, which sucks in it own little way, but I get it. He’ll be finishing school in May, and is trying to figure out what he wants to do.
So we were talking on the phone this evening, and he says that there is a 70% chance that he will be taking a job that will require him to deploy to (probably) Afghanistan and even possibly a “classified” location, meaning I could guess, but he wouldn’t be able to tell me for sure where. I have been prepared for this, to be fair to him, but hearing him say it that way really just sank my heart…and now I can’t sleep.
I guess there’s not really much to say about it, but I had to throw it out there. It just sucks that after being apart for so long, when we would finally be able to be in the same place, he is willingly going to try to get a job overseas. And I know it really is for our combined benefit (these jobs pay pretty well) but for me, the money isn’t worth it. It just isn’t.
Thanks for listening.
