Today is day one of this horrible deployment and it has just been a long day that seems like it will never end. I did blog about some of it on the other blog Deployment Diaries . but there is a little bit more I want to say that has been really bugging me and if it offends you then so be it because i am tired of hearing people say this. I know that my husband is Aircrew and I know that he has, should I not say easier, but one of the better jobs in the air force. But when people have the nerve to tell me that my husband is NOT deploying because he is only gone for 77 days at a time and does not go to Iraq, yes I am going to be a brutal bitch to you and tell you off. The nerve some people have. Yes your husband may be gone for 6 months or more, but I guarantee you that your husband would not come back if it wasn't for mine. Yes my husband does not go to Iraq, because if he did ALL of our planes would be shot down and the whole place would blow up from all the fuel so therefore your husband would not come back. Yes my husband gets a room to his self and does not have to stay in a tent, but this is also because my husband needs the rest to fly the next day and to make sure everything goes smoothly in the air. I completely understand that your husband is more at a risk of being shot at, but that does not give you the damn right to say that my husband job is not important and that this is not considered a deployment. Yes, he is only gone for 77 days, but as soon as he comes home after 77 days home full of TDY's, he turns right back around to deploy again. So do not tell me that your husband is gone more than mine. Come visit me after 20 yrs of this and then we can compare! Ugh people make me so dang angry, and this is literally how one of my conversations went with a person I never want to speak with again. She has lost all respect from me. So please do not comment on any of my post saying anything related to this because I am on fire.
Oh and aside from all this bad news I come with more. Our jeep broke down Saturday so it is not drivable. We got it towed to a auto shop and they told us we needed a new transmission. GREAT!!! so we ended up selling it for 500 bucks and lost 700 throughout it all. BLAH. At least he was home for that craziness.
