Y’all. Spring Break might just be the death of me.
Today, I have an incredibly funny blogger sharing a guest post with you: Amber of Airing My Dirty Laundry One Sock at a Time was one of the very first BFFs on my blog, back when she was preparing for her husband to leave for a year. Now that he’s been gone for quite a while, she shares the crazy things people have said to her since he’s been gone.
My husband is gone.
No, he didn’t walk out on us.
He’s just in Korea for a year doing a job for the Air Force.
Is it hard? You bet. I’m stuck here with two (loud) children.
Do I have to deal with annoying comments from people? Yup. I’ve decided to post some of those statements with my response.
Annoying Statement: You’re lucky you don’t have to worry since he’s just in Korea. At least it’s not Iraq or Afghanistan.
My Response: Last I checked, Korea isn’t exactly peaceful. True, he might not be in a war zone, but still, am I not allowed to miss him since he’s “just” in Korea?
Annoying Statement: Why did you let him go? I’d NEVER let my husband go and abandon his family like that.
My Response: First of all, my husband is a grown man. I don’t “let” him do anything. Second of all, I knew Korea would help his career. I wasn’t about to keep him with me and have him be miserable. He didn’t abandon us. Thanks to Skype, we’re able to talk a few times a week.
Annoying Statement: I’d DIE if I had to sleep alone. Isn’t it AWFUL to sleep alone?
My Response: Not at all. I love to stretch out. Having the bed to myself is a plus.
Annoying Statement: Do you cry every night missing your husband?
My Response: No. I’ll probably cry harder when Steve Carell leaves The Office.
Annoying Statement: So who mows your lawn and does all the guy stuff now? I could NEVER mow my lawn…
My Response: Um, me. It makes for amusing blog fodder.
Annoying Statement: Do you worry he’ll cheat on your over there?
My Response: He should be more worried about me running off with John Krasinski. Ha. (Usually met with blank expression.) No, not really. We trust each other. He knows if he cheated that I’d attack the chick with my oversized purse. I have lots of change in there so it would hurt.
