I get incredibly clingy and emotional, he starts to push away. It is just how we deal. I want to make memories and take a million pictures of our time together. He wants to fix the walkway to the garbage cans in the back yard (because it is annoying) and build me a new bed. It is just how we deal. Each in our own way, we are trying to prepare our hearts and our minds for separation. It is not easy, it is not fun, it is part of Army life.
