This is for anybody that has been married longer then a minute. Although having a family member on deployment can bring on many challenges and struggles there are a few things that come up that can reduce stress in the household when one member is not in the house.
Anybody that knows me at all knows that I am constantly cold and will NEVER complain when the thermometer hits 100 degrees outside but will bitch when the temp dips below something like 70 degrees. I love humidity and I constantly keep asking why I have yet to live someplace warm all year. However, my husband is the exact opposite and starts to get a bit cranky when the temps get over about 80 degrees. Throughout our 11 year marriage this has always been an issue of contention. So as much as I would prefer Chris home with us and me freezing I will take advantage of this little perk and stay warmer this year. And I guarantee you as I am writing this he has his thermostat set to about 65 degrees…brrrrr and he is loving it!
