  • My husband is in Afghanistan, but I did get a phone call from him this morning

  • Yes. DH is a cop, rarely off on weekends. DS works around his school schedule so weekends are filled with work.

  • My SO worked last night till 5 am and has to do some video work today. I would be disappointedbut I have decided to be happy he has a job and that he is willing to work so hard so I can be home with the kids. For me it really is the best gift. How ever it did take a bit of being pouty after he left last night for me to come to the decision.

  • Nope, everyone is home... It's laundry day, so we'll be in and out to go to the mat... But mostly home cleaning, getting ready for the week ahead.

  • Yep, but this is the norm. He tends to work most holidays, they do try and get him Christmas off though. Doesn't even phase me anymore. I'll celebrate with DD today and whenever he has a day off I know he'll take me out fishing or to do something else if the weather is bad. (I love to fish.)
