Help airman being deployed!!!!

Yep, just like the others have said - research the new area you're moving to and jump in and explore. That'll keep you busy. Make a to-do list of things you want to do and see. What area are you moving to? Maybe some of us can help you get a jump start on that list if we've been there/are there.

I totally agree with everything Lucky Girl said. Especially making new friends! Since you are moving closer to him, I am assuming you will be closer to a military installation. Maybe some of his buddies who are deploying also have girlfriend's or wives nearby. See if you can get in contact with any of them. If you hit it off with them, they will be a great support while he is gone since they are going through the same thing.

 You handle it just like all the other months you two are apart. Enjoy the month you'll have with him. Try to put yourself in the frame of mind that you will have six months to explore the new area your moving to. It's hard, I know, but try to focus on something fun you plan on doing during that time. When my husband has been gone for months, then I get to see him for a few weeks, I always find some solace that I've got a routine down to return to when the visit is over.

When your nursing school is finished you can focus on finding a job. I'm sure that should keep you busy for a while./WorkArea/threadeddisc/emoticons/wink.png Add to that the challenge of making some new friends and finding a new hobby, and you should be able to focus on something other than the separation. Get a pet.... It's hard to feel too much self-pity when you have take care of someone else.
