Fun on Duty Day

Sometimes being stuck at home alone on Duty Day can really stink. Yes it is nice to have a day to yourself to do what you want, but some times having to handle things that require another person on duty day is pretty annoying. 
So instead of being upset that it is duty day, I suggest to have some fun with it. Here are some ways to make duty day fun.

-- You don't have to shave your legs! It is always good to prevent a blood letting.

-- The kids will love having pop tarts for dinner!

-- You will discover this thing called "the remote". This item is normally captured and held on to all night. 

-- Once you discover "the remote" you will find that despite what he tells you, it WILL find chic flicks, OWN, Lifetime, ION, and TLC. Amazing, but there will be NO men's shows on tv on duty night. 

-- Inform your children that they have all been granted "leave". Insist they all go outside. Lock the front door. Inform them they are not allowed back in until their "leave period" is up. 

-- Lay in the middle of the bed and make a snow angel with the covers. This is the one night where you will not be clinging to the edge. 

-- Seize the opportunity to something Girl like. Maybe enjoy a pedicure or just a night free of farting.

-- Do all of the things your husband is completely confused by. Like changing the toilet paper roll or starting the dishwasher. Or you can just leave it for him to ignore yet another day.

Duty days can stink, but the best part of Duty Day is that it is ONLY ONE DAY and they will be home the next day. 

It could be worse, it could be deployment ....
