One of the things my husband does before a separation is prepare our household for Y2K.
I think much of this is because in our 7 years of marriage whenever he is called away with the Army, I am usually pregnant, nursing a baby, chasing a small child, or all of the above. So in order to be sure we have everything we need, he makes sure there are several bags of sidewalk salt in storage, several cases of bottled water in the pantry, and a large amount of laundry soap.
This time he lined them up neatly on the windowsill.
And being a creature of habit, I just turn them around when they’re empty and leave them neatly in a row.
Today I decided it was time to part with four empty bottles and move the remaining containers to the shelf…
Thanks darlin – How did you know I could use a hug from you today?
How does your spouse prepare your household for extended separations?
In case you missed them, here are links to the other notes I’ve found during this deployment.
