Ok, in all seriousness, I don’t get complimented (often enough) on my household management. That’s not something anyone but DH would notice, really, and maybe my family. I really shouldn’t complain too much, since I’m not battling any rugrats either, but it’s still a huge amount of work for one person. I do all of the financial and handle most all of the day to day tasks around our house – I always have. It’s been a good learning/growing experience for me, and I definitely credit it with me truly becoming an adult. I shoulder a lot of responsibility and a lot of stress because of it, much more than DH, in my mind. I worry a lot more about what needs to be done around here, what bills need to be paid, how we can make things stretch, etc. It’s probably a good thing that I do it, because I am a control freak, but I’ll be glad when I can sit back and relax soon – when things have settled a bit financially and when I’m on vacation!
I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
