Have you heard of it?
I am sure you have.
Its a term meaning a sort of bad luck, or vibe.
Well I am adding a term to the "Juju" family.
All of us Military Spouses have heard of it, and had it.
It those times where we talk about the car breaking down, the kids getting sick
and the wash machine starting to make noises, and this happens
ONLY when he leaves.
In my community, and with my job, Ive been hearing about others deployment juju,
so I thought Id share alittle of mine.
((oh your going to love this story))
I was caravanning with some friends to a Fall Fest not to far from our post.
And of course being the free spirit I am, I HAD to jam the whole way.
So I whipped out my ipod and while plugging it in
I use to have pictures of the accident, but I cant seem to locate them.
Anyways, after that happened, I put the car in the shop
and rented a Mercedes!
Oh it was awesome!
Leather seats, dark tint, the horse power!
Anyways while doing errands on the second day of my rental
And paid out of pocket to fix it.
And of course deployment juju grabbed me again with our new car.
That is my 2010 Dodge Journey stuck on a rock.
I swear that rock jumped out from no where.
I was stuck in such an add way on this rock that not even the tow truck could lift me off.
So a wonderful soldier teamed up with the wrecker guy and decided.
"You lift, and ill pull the rock out from under with my truck."
Luckily it was alittle cosmetic damage that isn't going to cost me much to fix.
And Laura your right, I was able to laugh at myself.
This deployment juju gets us all.
And you can either let it get you down.
Team up with someone and figure how to get off that damn rock!
