Suck it up Buttercup.....

That's the catch phrase for some of the wives from our boat. As Navy wives, we know all about dealing with things, especially things that we don't particularly want to face.
My husband just got home from a six month deployment, just over a month ago. In two weeks, I get to look forward to saying goodbye....AGAIN. It's just enough time to get used to him being home, being here for our children, being here to help around the house, being in our bed every night and then all of a sudden....POOF! He's gone again.
I don't get angry with him. I know there is nothing he can do about it. I know this is the life we chose - trust me I get it. Still, there are definately times when I get tired of sucking it up. Especially when he seems so blaise about it. You know, that's the way life is you just have to deal with it. Yes, trust me I get that I have to suck it up - but what I don't have to do it LIKE it.
