The Deployment Diary

You know your husband works long hours when...

So I met my across the street neighbor this past Saturday. I had bent the blade on the lawnmower (hit a stump)so I had taken it off and used a sledge hammer to straighten it (I know, but it beat the heck out of a trip to the hardware store lol - plan to do that tomorrow). She stopped during the fiasco to say Hi. They moved in during the winter, so we hadn't had a chance to meet one another yet.

We're talking and she says, "So your husband is in the Army?" I said yes, he'd been in for a while. She says, "He sure is gone a lot. Does he only comes home on the weekends?"

I about fell over laughing. I told her no, he was home every night except right now while he is in the field, but it's usually 9 or 10 pm when he gets in - then he's gone again at the crack of dawn.

She had no clue that my husband came home every night LMBO. I had no clue that it appeared that the babies and I lived here all alone - except for weekends lol.

At any rate, the next week will be busy, so I won't be online. School let out for the summer today and we have plans through next Wednesday with husband having a four day weekend this weekend. Hope everyone has a good Memorial Day and I'll be back next Wednesday or Thursday...
