Taking Time

You know in the midst of all the chaoticness (is that a word lol) of our lives here at home the kids, work, me trying to get my career off the ground and also working my regular job from home I sometimes loose track of all the things that me and hubby will miss out on during this upcoming deployment.

Before he left to go to Iraq in 2007 we had just PCS'ed he was working late , and I would usually be exhausted when he came home , which in the end put a halt in spending time together. When he finally deployed I held alot of regret that I didn't try hard enough to squeeze time in even if it meant taking some time away from something else that was important.

So even though hubby just got in from work I handed him his dinner plate put the kids in the other room and me and him just hung out in the adult room.

(The adult room is where I have that special sofa that the kids cant even breathe on or look at LOL).

Hanging out in the Adults Only room isn't much but it gives us time to just blab and talk something couples so often forget to do and it also gives me a chance to know that he is relaxing. Seeing him just lounging brings me joy especially since I know that shortly he wont get this luxury.

So ladies remember to take time with the hubbies and definitley remember that it doesn't have to be anything major just time in the adult room is fine lol.

Above is my hubby relaxing ... Yeah Yeah I had to snap a pic hehe :)


  1. This is so very true. All too often we lose sight of the future. And being Army Wives we can't really do that because we never know when the next day, our husbands might come home and say "Honey.. I am deploying." We need to remember to live in the now. Live in the moment. Great post Krystel

  2. So true, hubby and I ate dinner at the table by candlelight yesterday while the girls played in the play room... I just fed them their dinner earlier before he got home from work. They were fed and happy to get some play time before bedtime and we enjoyed getting to talk to each other for 20 minutes before going into the bedtime routine with both kids.

  3. True. I get mad at the little gesture he makes but I know he is mentally preparing himself for deployment once we to Hinesville. I need to just accept and stop being mean because I will miss those hugs tap on that a$$ the squezzing of the you know what, lol. Take time to appreciate what you have before it is gone.
