My hubby is deploying in the middle of the year sometime. This will be his first deployment so I cant help you there. One thing I know is most people feel less stressed when they get to talk while the other listen. Sometimes they also like hear about your day even if you think it us lame.

Deployments are rough no matter how many you go through. I know with my guy he gets home from Iraq to join a new unit and now he is TDY most of the time it seems. I hate the fact that we talked more while he was in Iraq then TDY to Fort Bragg.

Thanks for the ideas. This is our 4th deployment. This has always been a problem but it seems worse this time (or maybe I'm just burned out on the whole thing).

My hubby just got back from Iraq last July. While he was deployed we would talk every day for a couple of hours. We would talk about things that made him feel stressed out, we would talk about news and current events, his work out schedule, what he ate at the defac and the list could keep going on. I hope this helps.

Smiles,
CarolAnn

My husband is in Afghanistan and he gets on the computer to chat twice a day most day. Does anyone have any suggestions for conversation topics? My days are all the same (kids, housecleaning...) so I don't really have anything to tell him. I know I am very blessed for him to be able to talk as much as he is able to but I feel bad when I don't have anything to talk about.
