Greetings all! I have been wanting to write a blog for sometime now. I love reading them and thought it would be even more fun to write one. So here goes. Obviously, if you didn't get it from the title, this blog will chronicle my life before, during and after the deployment of my husband. We have been married for a little over a year and this will be his second deployment, and my first. As soon as I joined the military community I have been preparing for the "D" word as almost every event I attended it was discussed (even if there wasn't one scheduled).  There are seminars and briefs to attend, classes to take and groups to join that are all dedicated to helping families make it through deployment. So far my husband and I are in the preparation stage; filling out will worksheets, writing important pre-deployment dates on the calendar, visiting friends and family during pre-deployment leave, and creating the deployment budget. So I guess it has officially begun!
