My husband seems more and more dead set to join the army every day. We have two small children and two large dogs, not to mention severe depression although I'm good at hiding it. He thinks it might give me a chance to "find myself", not having him around so much but I can't imagine being alone with the kids for months on end.

Any other military wives or single moms (I'll practically be single with him gone so much for the next 4 years)with any words of wisdom?
