Hey! You're just down the road in Summerville! We used to live there when we first got married. My husband volunteered for one of the departments there. Urgh...the name escapes me now. I'll ask when I see him again. As you know, that will be a couple days. I read your post on the ff wives site. I completely understand. You are perfectly normal in feeling lonely and also annoyed with his constant attentiveness to the department. I've felt it all too, but for us at least, things have improved greatly. I have to run and get the kids to VBS right now, but I'll write more later if you want me to. Good to meet someone sort of local on here!
