For those of you who don't know, Colin is currently in Connecticut for two months finishing up training for the navy. While he's there, I'm in upstate NY keeping up our 100 year old rental house. We've been living here for about a year, and have definitely seen our share of issues (the furnace going out at least twice in the middle of snowstorms, windows that don't close just right, walls falling down in the basement, squeaky floors that made it impossible for me to get things done while Colin slept during the day on the night shift, etc.). That being said, it really is a great house. It's got tons of character and quirks!

Ever since Colin left, I've been noticing things that need fixing/keeping up, and just sort of figuring out a way to live around them until he comes for a visit next weekend. The hallway light is out, the dishwasher is leaking, and the yard looks like it's been under five feet of snow for the last six months. I'm perfectly capable of fixing all of these things (just as Colin would remind me), but for some reason I've just naturally started compartmentalizing them as things I need him to take care of.

For all of you military wives out there (and the regular kind too!), what have you found yourself relying on someone else in your household to do? How do you change your ways once deployments or training rolls around?
