As I'm sitting here at midnight in tears I can't help but think why I chose to stay in Alaska during deployment. I might not of loved Fort Benning but it was a whole lot better then this place.
Today was just a disaster, deployment got the best of me. If you don't mind ranting please read on...If you do skip two paragraphs to the end.
There was drama with a credit card company telling me I had no authority to speak to them and they had to speak to the cardholder.. Well jack ass.. you have a power of attorney for me because the cardholder is busy fighting a war in Afghanistan. "well ma'am we can't speak to you if the cardholder isn't there"... my response "well then the bill won't be getting paid, you have the power of attorney there and it gives me the authority to do whatever is necessary on the account, I can sell his house if I needed to but yet you won't let me ask the damn APR". Needless to say, I hung up and will deal with it another day.
Then there was the wonderful Facebook drama with the psycho Alaska Army Wives.. Long story short... I was supposed to pick up an order of food today from another wife. Well the day got ahead of me and I didn't get to pick up the order. She called me out on Facebook, I e-mailed her apologizing to then find out a pathetically long thread on Facebook of her, and 5 other wives that I don't know bashing me. (Wonderful huh)... Deleted that Facebook page fast...

Anyways, it was a long emotional day. Getting bashed by people you don't even know, and getting told your power of attorney is worthless is not what you want to deal with any day. Let alone when your pregnant, dealing with deployment & trying to get through being in a place you hate. I have learned in the 4 something months I have been in Alaska.. Trust no one.. They all bite you in the ass.. There are a select few that are trustworthy, and I plan on hanging out with them more... But as for everyone else... Not worth your time..Here's a travel tip: if you come to Alaska keep your guard up and watch you back. It's the worst of the worst of army wives out here..
I'm starting off a new day tomorrow, hoping that tomorrow's new day is better than today's. Putting my guard up, keeping to myself, and just going to get through this deployment on my own (with the select few people I trust, like literally few as in 3 maybe 4 people). Each day that has gone by whether good or bad is one day closer to my husband.
Sorry for the depressing blog post, but I had to put it down somewhere. I don't tell my husband these things when he calls because his calls aren't often and I don't need to have him worrying about me here.
So I apologize again, and hopefully will have something positive to post this weekend.
Until then... I plan on organizing the hell out of my house this weekend and upcoming week and staying away from the crazy's also known as Army Wives.
P.S ( I know not all Army wives are crazy, but most of them seem to just gossip and wear rank)... I hope no military wives are offended by this post.. If you are, I am sorry.. but that's just how it is out here. They give us all a bad name.
