Lissa at The Lilting House asked how we military wives opened hard to open lids without our husbands home. She received quite a few answers. I mostly bang on the lid with a knife and it loosens it somehow.
This post made me think of what I miss having my husband gone besides the normal husbandly companionship. I miss him taking the garbage out before garbage day. I'm always leery of going out at night to do that so I would wait until the morning of trash day to do so. Well, sometimes I would be too late.
I miss him taking my car to the gas station to fill it up. I miss him watching the kids so I can shop for shoes. Who can look at shoes when
yelling at the kids to stay close corralling the kids is priority. I miss calling him and asking him to pick up the prescription for the sick kid so I don't have to wait for over an hour at the military pharmacy with all four kids.
So, Lissa, thank you for making me think of all the wonderful things my husband did to make my life easier.
