Things are stressful and I’ve been incubating. J. attends a hiring conference in a couple of weeks that may determine the course of our life after Army. No pressure or anything.
I’m tired. Pooped. Anxious. A little depressed. And the house looks like this everywhere:
It’s a tough thing, this transition. I never thought I’d become so attached to the Army. But we’ve dedicated blood, sweat, and tears for the last six years – we’ve endured some of the toughest years in recent Army history. And the thought of leaving…it’s actually a little too painful to verbalize right now. Maybe later.
Transition stinks. It would be nice to be able to live in one place for an extended period of time, though. I’m looking forward (way in the future) to those days.
I like Charlotte’s idea 🙂 Get out of the house and enjoy the first few days of Spring!
Have you planted any grass seed in a pot and let E watch it grow? I LOVED doing this when I was little. When it is growing nice and tall- you could hide little chocolate eggs in it for E to discover 😉
God bless- Nik
It’s got to be really tough. The thought of leaving the Air Force well, it’s like my brain won’t even go there. But, you know when it’s the right time to take a different path, even so, change is never easy. It’s good to be going through it all together, with your husband though isn’t it!

Let’s see, maybe take little E and go out to play somewhere…dress her up and head for the tea room? be the first in line at the museum? go to te craft/fabric store for a new idea or two? forget the messy house- enjoy each other. Pancakes for dinner. xoxoC
Call me anytime if you want to vent, I miss those days when J was gone. Your always in my thoughts and prayers.
hey there, lady. i’m glad you’re still here. sorry to hear about the stress, clutter, and worry. i’ll be sending you all good thoughts as you work towards a big coming transition. 🙂
