A few years back I was reading another favorite blog of mine, Just Another Snarky Wife.
Her post was about her husband coming home after being deployed and
doing the happy snoopy dance. I laughed and cried reading this post.
But the one thing that really stuck a chord with me was her theory about how to
be a successful Navy spouse. After pondering this theory I now believe it is true for any spouse, single parent or caregiver (regardless of military affiliation), that has one of those days. You know the kind I'm talking about...
"I have a theory: The successful Navy spouse is the one who can paste a cheery smile on her face even though she's working out the logistics of selling the kids on eBay, ditching the house, finding a job at a truck stop restaurant in Podunk, Arizona, and changing her name to Loretta Lou. Okay, it's not a theory so much as an intense desire to know I've hit some type of marker of success. /snort"
