The deployment blahs.

I'm in 'em. Nothing particularly set it off. But I'm having trouble filling time. I don't really want to see people if I don't have to. And I just feel bored, bored, bored.

Any recommendations? Rewatching all four seasons of "House, MD," though reinvigorating my love for Greg House, didn't do the trick this time.

When those hit me, I would have myself a Sex and the City marathon. As in all day for 2 1/2 days kind of marathons. It helped me escape for a bit.

Oh, I remember those (and I'm not looking forward to them again) Friends got me out of them... and I also HAD to get up and go - I work outside the home. And the dog needed walking...

I didn't like seeing most people, the whole making small talk... or translating for the civilians... it was exhausting!

Hi there! I have the same trouble as you, and that's when I go on-line and read other people's blogs! My husband is gone till after Thanksgiving sometime. Do you like to read? Work out? Crafty stuff? Shop online? Try a new recipe? Love your blog, :)

If I were in your shoes, I'd be tempted to have a nice driving holiday - clear your schedule, if you can, for a couple of weeks and head somewhere fun and absolutely non-stressful - maybe the UK or Ireland, where you can just take it all in without having to fumble with another language.

I love Edinburgh, my old grad school stomping grounds. Have you been? Also, I have dear friends in England, who love to meet other traveling friends (really). Interested?

I agree with BW...Sex and the City always did it for me!

Getting outside while the weather is still good is a must. You will be glad you did when winter hits and you can't get outside.

Retail therapy...'nuff said. In fact, that gave me a great idea...see ya later!
