OT- My year without DH
I have posted before about DH deploying and going to live in Japan and more and more it looks like me moving with him isn't going to be possible.
This year is shaping up to be pretty cool for me but I am feeling guilty and need to figure out tactful ways to talk to DH about it, because the last thing I want is him to be insecure or feel left out. While he has made the choice to stay active duty (been in 24 yrs), he is doing it for us. The financial benefits and medical benefits are very strong pro's and not having everything settled with SS18 was our #1 reason for him staying in. He did ask me before he did it as well, so I am in full support of him.
But... My company is taking some key people on a cruise in September! Then in October I am going to Japan for 2 weeks without him as the Ombudsman (spouse volunteer that is the liaison between families and the command). I am so excited for both of these things, but I know he is jealous. I would be too in his shoes!
Does anyone have any advice on what to do other than play down my excitement and minimize talking about it? I know he wants me to be happy and have experiences and fun, but he is going to be on a VERY different cruise than me so I get his feelings LOL
