i’ve been debating writing this post for a while…
i’m still not entirely sure i’m comfortable with sharing because compared to others i have nothing to complain about…
but, here we go.
j has been in the marine corps for close to four years.
we’ve been through bootcamp, mct, a school and c school together but he recently left for his first training exercise away from the base he’s stationed at.
props to you military wives who’s husbands leave regularly.
i’m a mess.
in the grand scheme of things j will only be gone for a very very short amount of time, but i’m hating it already. as i’m sure most military wives can attest to, my life down here really revolves around him. i set my schedule around his schedule.
i live in north carolina only because he’s stationed down here.
so what do i do now that he’s gone?
i’m keeping my fingers crossed that soon i’ll be able to stop focusing on how much i miss him and start embracing this me time.
it’s like weeks and weeks of terrific lady days!
i’m so blessed to have great friends to help me through this and a very vicious guard dog (ha ha ha) to protect me at night.
and there’s always plenty of wine in my liquor cabinet.
thank god for that.
cheers to making time fly by!
