So Strange

If you were to come to my house and visit us right now you would think we were the happiest married couple on earth. Until of course, you saw the look on my face when Rob when he opens his mouth. I don't think he really understands that our marriage is ending.

He is loving and sweet, in all honesty he is the Rob I have known before Saudi. Then he talks about when he leaves in June as if it is just another deployment. I honestly think he has convinced himself that he is not leaving us just going on a job. I on the other hand am very aware he is leaving us and that our marriage is ending. The counselor hit it on the head when she explained to me I was grieving the death of my marriage. Rob on the other hand is sure we will be working things out while he is in Saudi and I am sure from his past history there ...dating. Even the counselor seems a little perplexed by him.Thank God it isn't just me!

It is so very strange how unreal my life is right now!

Gail, you will be so much less stressed after he leaves. You are such a strong person and an awesome mom to the girls (and math smart too, Lol). He is the one with the problem, and some day he will realize what an idiot he has been.
