When my husband was deployed, I had plenty of things to fill my time since I had to pick up the tasks that he would normally do around the house. Especially when our 3 kids were young! I had to set aside time to do something I enjoyed, to treat myself. Whenever I was feeling particularly down, I used to take a day, order pizza, and binge-watch Hallmark Movies. Cheesy, romantically, sappy, feel-good Hallmark Movies. They always put me in a better mood. Now that we are passed our deployment days, I will still sometimes tune in to the Hallmark Channel if I get the tv to myself. Hubby laughs at me for watching them, but that's ok...my ManChild still plays video games...so we all have something!
