I know I don't post here much anymore since my ex and I split up, but this is the one place where my rant will be completely understood.

Guy called me on my lunch hour. He just got his orders for Iraq. ***?! He is on profile and can't lift more than so many pounds and can't do this or that.... how is he supposed to wear his gear and carry a weapon!?!?!? Then he starts going on about how he is going to keep me on as his life insurance beneficiary. Like I want to talk about him dying! Ack! I know it needs to be talked about but I'm not ready to talk about it.... I didnt think it would bother me so much since we aren't together any more but it breaks my heart! I'm scared and sad and worried... I've been fighting back tears since he told me. He was supposed to get out in December, but now with this deployment he's got another year to a year and a half. I think maybe Lindsay and I will make a trip back to Oklahoma so he can spend time with his daughter before he deploys.

So far 2007 is NOT shaping up to be any better than last year... Its only February and this year is already awful!

Tuesday I found out a friend of our family (my older sisters life long best friend) has a brain tumor and doesn't have much chance to pull through the surgery that is scheduled for next week. She has 4 little girls at home that don't even know that their mommy might die...

Please, Lord, let the year get better!!

That sucks! Sorry to hear the bad news. It's natural I think tho to feel scared for him. I mean you did love him at one time.. and probably love him in a sense as your childs father.. you know what I mean haha.. It's scary to know people who deploy no matter what connection they have to you! I think it would be a great idea to make a trip so he can see his daughter.. that would be awesome of you! Good luck!

i just talke to dh and he said that as long as they can still do ruck marches they can still get deployed i kno its scary. i hope you can get back to ok to see him. now i have to call my friend at sill to see if her husband is deploying.

and i dont think you have to think its weird that you are upset. my ex fiance called me last summer telling me he was leaving in a week and i got teared up on the phone. im happily married with a kid but i still care for him. i dont think that ever changes, especially when you kno their is a slim chance something will happen.

lastly, i hope 2007 shapes up for you. we are gearing up for our first deployment too.
