I think the rule about guard weekends are that they always land on whenever there are big plans for the month.
Family wedding coming up? Guard weekend.
Birthday celebration? Guard weekend.
Holiday party? Guard weekend.
You get the point.
Guard weekends and Murphy’s Law must have some type of mutual agreement.
Except, we’re getting smarter.
Guard weekend? Send the girls to the grandparents!
It really is a win-win.
Here’s a picture of our 3 1/2 year old learning to fish with my dad (Grampy).
This picture really makes me so happy because it brings me back great memories of fishing with my dad as a small kid.
So, while the kids are having a fun weekend away and hubby is working on base, I get much needed ME time!
Sometimes I clean/work on house projects that are hard to do while the kids are around.
Other times I just lay in bed and go on a four hour reading binge with coffee.
And usually, one of the nights they are gone, hubby and I get to have a date night!
So, thank you, guard weekend for not being so bad after all.
