There are somethings that just are during deployment: Awkward, frozen video chats, missing packages routed through Gitmo for no discernible reason, and Murphy’s Law. And let’s be honest– it’s a rite of passage and a point of pride to experience and survive the worst the universe has to throw at you while you’re holding everything together at home. Whether it’s an overflowing dishwasher, every single kid with the flu all at the same time, car troubles, or a combination of those and more, military spouses love to share their worst, most ridiculous moments with each other.

No matter what those details are, we bet that you’ve experienced this progression at least once.

We’ve all been there: Deployment’s going fine. But you can’t shake the feeling that Murphy’s Law is going to pile-drive you at any moment.

At some point, you just give up. . .

. . . and have a good, messy, ugly cry.

But you pull yourself together and give yourself a pep talk.

And you remember you have friends who are cheering you on.

So you forge ahead, even though Murphy is definitely kicking your butt.

At some point, you realize you’ve done everything you can,  and you need to be okay with whatever happens.

Just kidding. Whether it’s ice cream, chocolate, wine, or a big bowl of comfort food, we all know it’s more like this.
