I find it hard when DH actually gets home. The pressure for everything to be perfect can be overwhelming. Any rows feel like the end of the world. We both get used to living alone and need time to adjust to "coupledom" (excuse the phrase!) again
What particularly are you finding hard about the last few weeks? Is it just that time is dragging, or you are worried about something?
Anxiety about all the things you have said - anxiety about adjusting to being 600 miles apart again when he's back on base - not getting time alone with him with the carousel of kids coming and going. Him not feeling the same way about me
I understand, it's the anticipation isn't it. Fast forward to a few weeks after his return and you will have a new "normal" and the tour will be a distant memory. I get jealous of my civilian friends marriages sometimes! Most people just don't have to deal with this stuff!
