For My Fellow Military Wives

I couldn't resist, this made me laugh so hard. My friends complain all the time about their husbands being gone for a day or a week and I just don't know what to say! It doesn't make me mad or anything, but it is kind of funny. Granted we are having an easy year this year. Hubby has only been gone about three months. He leaves again soon for three weeks, but still it could be way worse. Last year he was gone 7.5 months. I literally don't know how some of my friends do it. Their spouses are gone 12 - 14 months at a time.
