    ...your husband knows more about laundry than you.
    ...your husband comes home from work and just by the smell of him you can tell that he has been cleaning weapons all day.
    ...someone askes when your husband will be home and you say Feb., Mar., or Apr. instead of 5 or 6.
    ...you live on your own and by yourself more after you are married than before you were married.
    ...most of the married women you know and meet have kids and are under 21.
    ...you know all of your husbands co-workers by their last name, and rarely know their first names.
    ...the whole block you live on is filled with stay at home moms.
    ...you say "I am going to the commissary" instead of the "grocery store".
    ...you need an I.D. to buy groceries.
    ...you are call "Ma'am" at the age 18 by every MP or SF that comes in contact with you.
    ...you forget you have a driver's license and take your military I.D. everywhere you go.
    ...you know what it means to be a WM, go to Oki, and what LES means.
    ...you know what branch and rank is being laid to rest just by glancing at the marchers.
    ...you hear of another death or injury of a US Military and weep inside for that wife or mother that loved that Marine, Soldier, Airman, or Seaman.
    ...you know just as much about your husband's job as he does.
    ...you know the rank of the guy in front of you just by looking at his chevrons.
    ...you've never given a haircut in your life but you've perfected the medium fade, 6-8, and skin.
    ...you really want something but say "damn, I'm gonna have to wait til the 1st or the 15th for it."
    ...you got all excited when the digi cammies came out, cause you knew then you wouldn't have a cupboard full of starch!
    ...you ask someone "Whats your MOS?" instead of "Whats your job".
    ...half your wardrobe has some kind Military insignia on it and it once belonged to your husband.
    ...the sounds of helicopters and jets flying over your house and shaking your windows, suprisingly soothes you.
    ...you classify people by what unit they're in.
    ...you know what kind of helicopter or plane is flying over you just by the sound it makes.
    ...your husbands dress and work clothes cost more than yours.
    ...you use a crook-necked flashlight with a red lens when the power goes out cause its the only one you can find.
    ...you write in pencil because EVERYTHING is subject to change.
    ...you know that a 2 month separation IS short, no matter what your civilian friends say.you know better than to go to the PX, Bx, NX, or the commissary between 11:30 and 1:30 unless it is a life or death emergency.
    ...you show your military I.D. to the greeter at Wal-Mart.
    ...you know that any reference to "sand box" describes a deployment to A-stan, Kuwait, Iraq, and not your kids backyard toys.
    ...you have enough camouflage in your house to wallpaper the White House.
    ...you don't have to think about what time 2130 is.
    ...you can't remember the last time you saw a doctor that wasn't wearing BDU's.
    ...you pick apart uniforms on T.V. and in the movies for being inaccurate with you husband.
    ...you've learned to sleep through the sounds of the shooting range, C-130's, C-5's and helicopters.
    ...you are asked to stop talking in all acronyms and translate it all to english.
    ...you have at least one car magnet ribbon.
    ...you have multiple copies of POA's to throw at the credit card companies and the banks.
    ...you defend your lifestyle no matter how bad things get because you know there is no other life for you.

    I give my kid the same haircut as DH.. But DH always goes first so he can show DS how to "sit nice like a big boy"

    ...you got all excited when the digi cammies came out, cause you knew then you wouldn't have a cupboard full of starch!
    That was a big one right there.... Except now, I have to special order laundry soap over the internet because I can't wash them with ANYTHING that they sell in the store...

    well, when he's home I mean....

    I'm on my way. We got a clipper set and I gave Topher my first haircut before he went back to school in January.
