I am usually alone for the most part on duty days. Unless of course I have plans, that is. My mind tends to wander and suddenly I am lost in my thoughts. Sometimes I get so lost in my thoughts that all I do is think all day. I wonder if that is good or bad? Huh.
The military can either make or break a couple, right? But that depends on the couple right? Honestly, some days during deployment, I didn’t think I could do it. The first day was the worst by a landslide. Here I go rambling. Enough about deployment! He is HOME!
I find myself in a sad state so often when he is gone so I have decided to find the good in the days alone. Here is a list of the pros (no cons because this is a positive blog!):
1) I get to reflect on the beauty of everything surrounding me distraction free.
2) I get “me time”. Today was the first day since he got home that I actually got this “me time”. Even on his duty days I always seem to have something planned with someone.
3) I get to write free of distraction. I have been terrible at keeping up with the HUN even since my husband got home. I started writing for the HUN when he was deployed so I just don’t seem to think about writing when he is home. Bad habit, I know.
4) I get girl time. It’s something I had a lot of while he was gone but is now a thing of the past when he is home. Don’t get me wrong, I cherish every moment we have alone, but I also love spending time with my girls!
I’m sure there are a few other things but the coffee just isn’t working today and my mind is in full blown zombie mode. So, if you were to write a list of pros for duty days or any other time he/she is away, what would be on YOUR list?
