Packing

One advice to military wives whose husbands have never deployed:  Make your husband start packing 2 weeks before you are set to deploy.  My husband definately didn't!  Oh my goodness, we've ran around like crazy people!  There are so many little things that you don't even think about.  We had to wash a bunch of stuff.  We had to buy random things like a wallet for his arm and a bathroom baag.  We had to go back and buy batteries and a sunglass case.  We had to buy space saver bags.  And all of these things were bought in different trips to the store.

In addition to the bazillion trips to the store was the packing, unpacking and repacking.  In all of that, he decided to demonstrate his gas mask.  I noticed while he had it on that the dog seemed to run from it.  So, I thought it'd be funny for him to chase Sam and see what he did.  Well, he made a puddle.  We laughed and laughed about it.  It was just what we needed!

I have the SAME picture... just with my husband! Our dogs did NOT like it when he had it on... started barking and everything.
