Today is my day off! Woo-hoo! It's gorgeous outside so I'm thinking Boomer and I are going to take a walk a little bit later on and then I'm planning some tanning outside on the balcony. I wish it would stay this way!
Ok, so I'm sure you're all tired of hearing about Toby Keith, but I promised I would say what happened at the concert AND be truthful about it so here it goes.
- I do know of at least two soldiers that got their pic with him and got something autographed. I think there was a little meet and greet for some of the soldiers before the show.
-Pictures were allowed at the concert, but no video (which I obviously get)
-Toby played for an hour. I was kind of expecting an encore, but there was none. He played, he left stage, people left. The End.
-USO had front row VIP seats. Wouldn't you know it I forgot my camera. I could have got some AMAZING pics. I could seriously kick myself.
I was reading a post on a forum the other day where a girl was talking about how her husband told her when he got back from being deployed that he was taking her to the gym with him everyday because she currently complains all the time that she needs to go, but never goes because she doesn't want to go without him.
Ladies...she won't even go to the gym by HERSELF! How is this possible? Also, its not like he's only been gone a week or two. He's almost ready to redeploy. I seriously sat there for a minute because it was so mind-boggling to me that this girl refused to go to the gym because she was scared to without her husband.
At first I felt bad, because there were all these other Army wives giving supportive comments and such like, "Oh I totally know what you mean, I don't go to the gym without my husband either."
Then I felt a sort of pity for this girl. I look at the girls that blog that had husbands deployed and I never thought you girls were too scared to do anything. You went to Crossfit, you traveled, you did marathons, went to concerts, etc. You didn't let him being deployed stop you from anything. I won't let that happen to me either. The last thing I want is for Sean's deployment to instill a fear in me that I can't do it without him. I mean, I may want to experience some things with him and wish he was there everday for the little things, but I refuse to be scared to do what I want to do.
Do you know women like this? Do you ever say anything to them? Am I just terribly mean?
