I agree with the others... Keep yourself BUSY and surrounded by people who will support you and all of the emotions you will feel. Don't turn to food, use this time to focus on you and your goals. When my hubby goes away for a week, a month or a year I focus on going to the gym and eating healthy - which I actually find easier when he's away if anything (he's an avid mac n' cheese and junk food guy haha)...

You'll do fine, and look now you have extra support :)

I have to agree with Harleychica, keeping busy is the best thing to do. My husband had been out of the marines for 12 years when we met and just recently went active duty Army. He didn't have basic to deal with but he has been gone since Jan 3rd at AIT. And if I don't have these acronyms correct you'll have to excuse me. I'm new to all of them. It will be over soon and will be worth it. Make the best of it, take care of yourself. Do things he doesn't like to do. Mine hates horror movies, and I have watched so many, I am almost sick of them. I actually went to the movies for the first time by myself to see Sex and the City. I was surprised, I actually enjoyed the alone time. Good Luck!!! The wait is worth it.

Yep, keeping busy is the best thing you can do. For the evenings, you can write letters to your hubby & keep them in a journal for when he gets back, you can read books, learn new crafts, take a crafting class (most classes at Michael's are in the evenings), watch movies that you love & husband doesn't like. These things will keep your mind busy and you won't feel as lonely. Hang in there, it will be over before you know it!

Hey there stranger! Great seeing ya! Well this is what you should expect in thoes 5 monsth...no phone calls or communication! Well, depending on the base and situation he might get to call home at the end of the 1st phase, but I would not count on it. Yes, basic training is very tough on the guys, but it keeps them focus and gets them mentally ready for what they are about to get themselves into!
My best advice for you is to stay busy, get in playgroups with you kids, join a gym or aerobics class, anything to keep you busy and out of the house. The evenings are hard, but thoes are the hard times for any military spouse.

Keep moving!
