Military families know that when one spouse is deployed, the entire burden of the household duties falls on the other spouse’s shoulders. Many servicemen and women try to get many household duties accomplished before deployment, so their spouse will have less to worry about while they’re away. Especially if the couple has children, taking care of household maintenance tasks while both spouses are home is an extremely good idea.
Many people get organized by making a special To Do list to complete before deployment day arrives. This list may include moving heavy items, repairing appliances and furniture, painting rooms, and similar tasks. Personal tasks may be added to the list, such as attending your kids’ soccer games, catching a date night or two, visiting extended relatives and taking walks around the neighborhood with the whole family on weekends.
Add this task to the practical side…
Lots of people don’t think about this, but do you realize how essential your garage door to your family’s daily life? It’s so helpful to have a garage door that works properly—it keeps pets and small children from running off into the street when parents are unloading groceries, and it’s so great to be able to just pull straight into your garage during inclement weather. You don’t have to get rained on, and you don’t have to endure insufferable Southern California heat, since your garage is often a few degrees cooler than the outside temperature.
As the saying goes..
Absence makes the heart grow fonder! When your garage door is working properly, it’s easy to take it for granted, but when it isn’t, it can be a huge inconvenience. When you’re away on a deployment, help your spouse keep one more thing off his or her To Do list by making sure your garage door is in tip-top shape before you ship out.
