Well, I didn't get to choose who I fell in love with*. There are many times when I feel stuck by the limited and crappy choices that the military gives us and we just have to make the best of an awful situation.
I have to admit that I haven't personally heard this phrase in a while. Not because there isn't an issue that would require my husband to feel guilty but I honestly think it's because I've just learned to stop complaining about the military.
One of the ways that my DH is planning on "making it up to me" spending our upcoming R&R time at a faraway bech. Yet, I have to wonder, is it worth it? Would I rather spend two glorious weeks on a beautiful resort with my husband who will pamper with me with massages and great food once a year or would I prefer to be with him day in and day out even though it means that we might get into more arguments because we would have more time to interact with one another?
Honestly, I would pick the latter and save the "make it up to me's." Besides, the sad thing about it is... after the hundreds of times that he's told me this, this seems to be the FIRST time he is making it up to me. A bit unfair, don't ya think?
* I don't want to hear "oh, but you did have a choice." No, I did not! So shut it.
