stands for "Charge of Quarters" meaning the person on "CQ" duty at night is in charge of the barracks or building for a 24 hour period. I wouldn't mind my husband having this duty if he had it sometime though out the week but when he has it on a Friday or Saturday it REALLY throws a wrench into our weekend plans.
This weekend we have a baseball game, senior prom and I wanted to have a "date night" just hubby and I. Now thanks to CQ our weekend has been RUINED. As it was last weekend.
My husband is walking zombie when he gets home from pulling CQ. He attempts to stay up as long as his body allows him but we definitely can't plan something for that day. I was also planning a trip to the Dinosaur Park and Pizza Hut but looks like that might not get to happen either.
Just another[perk]of living this military lifestyle............NEVER having your husband home!
