10 Things To Celebrate During Deployment

Are there really 10 things to celebrate during deployment? I’ve found these reasons to be excited:

celebrate during deployment

1- Another trash night down!

Because trash night sucks! And after each one,
you’re another week closer to your loved one being home.

2- When something breaks but you know what to do

Because it broke last deployment and you fixed it yourself. And you rock.

3- Getting a solid phone connection to hubby with no static

Because of all those other times that drove you crazy with static or no dial tone… savor the moment!

4- Actually cooking a meal!

Because, um, cereal and frozen burritos…?

5- Making it all the way to your parent’s house with kids and pets intact.

Because ahhhhhhhhhhhh!

6- A full night of sleep without waking up for loud noises,
kids crying, dog barking, or worry for your loved one.

Because sleep is hard to come by these days…

7- Allowing yourself to actually get a babysitter and go out

Because you deserve it!

8- Not letting your mind spool up into worry, anger and frustration after a
misunderstanding with hubby… which then takes hours or days before you
can chat again to resolve it.

Because you finally learned to chill after the past 50 times it happened…

9- No one to care if you don’t shower, do your hair, shave your legs, or leave the house for days!

Because sometimes it’s just nice to not do ANYTHING

10- 1/10th of the way, 1/8th of the way, 1/4 of the way, 1/3 of the way,
1/2 of the way, 2/3 of the way, 3/4 of the way, 7/8 of the way, 9/10 of the way,
ANOTHER DAY DONE!

Because every day is one day closer, one day stronger!
