You Know You’re a Military Spouse When….

You Know You’re a Military Spouse When….

-Someone asks when your Spouse will be home, you say July or August instead of 5 or 6pm.

-You live on your own and by yourself more after you’re married than before you were married.

-You know all of your Spouse’s co-workers by their last name…and rarely know their first name.

-You say “I’m going to the commissary” instead of “grocery store”.

… … -You need your I.D to buy groceries.

-You really want something but you say , well I’m going to have to wait for the 1st or 15th for it “.

-Half of your wardrobe has some kind of Military insignia on it and once belonged to your Spouse.

-The sounds of helicopters, and Jets flying over your house shaking your windows, surprisingly soothes you!

-Your Spouse’s work and dress clothes cost more than yours do.

-You only write in pencil because EVERYTHING is subject to change.

-You know that a 2 month separation IS short, no matter what your civilian friends say.

-You know better than to go to the commissary between 11:30 and 1:30 or on a payday unless it’s a life or death emergency.

-You know that any reference to “sand box” describes a deployment, not your kid’s backyard toys.

-You don’t have to think about what time 21:30 is.

-You pick apart uniforms on TV and in the movies for being inaccurate with your Spouse.

-You are asked to stop talking in acronyms and translate it all to English

-When your Spouse says they get to “Sleep In” and is referring to 0630

Saw this on Facebook and thought it was cute 🙂

  1. Love this! Very accurate. I especially love the one about scrutinizing military uniforms on tv. We are so bad about that!!

  5. Just stumbled upon your blog and love this post! So true! And isn't it crazy how 630 can feel "late"??? 😉

  6. When I initially left a commentt I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now
    every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same
    comment. Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me
    from that service? Appreciate it!

  7. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog
    and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
