Oh man. Not a whole week apart without any communication! The humanity!! My Husbsnd left for a deployment to the middle east in May 2012 on what was supposed to be a 6 month deployment. 6 months turned to 9, turned in to 13 months. I didn’t see my best friend, heart and soul for over a year. He had spotty communication over there and we went as long as 9 weeks without being able to talk, Skype or communicate in any way. I’m not seeking a f’n gold medal in spousin’ over here. Simply saying that this is a damn joke. They were apart for 7 days and acted like their worlds were crumbling, acting out of character and being dramatic. Calm down there.
