Feeling a little guilty and a lot lucky — my husband is home to be his staff’s base contact during the humanitarian effort. I remember how I felt when my husband was in a 19 day training trip and my friends’ husbands were only gone for 2 nights, so I know how they feel about my husband being home when their’s is not. On the other hand, his being home right now kind of makes up for his absence for those 19 days.
In any case, it’s AWESOME to have him home! We don’t know how long the Navy will allow him to stay, but we’ll take what we can get. He may (probably will) have to go back to the carrier before deployment is over.
