Another Deployment

So today my husband came home from work, and the first words out of his mouth were I'm deploying again. Besides one of my besties here i haven't told anyone. This will be our second deployment. I am having mixed feelings about him going. I know it will be tough on our daughter, and she will old enough to be able to know whats going on. I think the break will be good for hubby and I's marriage though. Sometime apart might help us more than it could hurt us. I just wish he didn't have to be in a dangerous place. It wont be for a couple of months so lets see how this goes. Not much more to write because I am still trying to digest the information myself.
