Sorry I judged

In the past I have read different military wives blog about the getaways they take once their spouse comes home from a deployment. The ones that I read of either went alone or with some girlfriends. Maybe just a weekend away at a spa or something like that.

Anywho, I never could understand that. Why would they want to leave their spouse after he just got home from a looooong deployment? They finally have their whole family together and they are leaving?

Well, let's just say after about 7 months of taking care of Fuzz and the home all by myself, I get it. I.So.Get.It. It's not that I don't want to spend every living, breathing moment with Stryker once he's home. It's just that I am in major need of a break from the everyday monotony and responsibilities of taking care of...everything.

I love Fuzz to death, and I am so very happy that I can have this time with her. It is amazing to watch her every developmental milestone unfold. It's just hard to do it alone, day in, day out, for months on end. Once again, I feel for single mothers. It's tough.
