I have a new article up at Military Spouse Magazine! If you have ever had a spouse deployed, in training, or even out late doing a dangerous job (police, fireman, etc.) then you know the unique torture of being glued to your phone awaiting a call.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
When you get home from work, put your phone on the kitchen counter and test the ringer to make sure it still sounds like an air raid siren. The counter is a nice height and central location; if the phone falls into the folds of the couch or under a blanket, the ring could be muffled. Double check that you didn’t accidentally put it in airplane mode.
One can never be too careful.
As you plug in the phone to charge at night, make sure the screen is facing the bed so the light will wake you if the ring and vibration against the wood dresser aren’t enough. Wake up every few hours and sleepily swing your arm over to your nightstand and blindly knock over your water and anything else that happens to be upright as you squint into the bright screen.
You will need reassurance that you didn’t miss a call in the night.
