Moving Madness

We’re moving! I don’t know if I have ever been busier than I am right now. I have so many things to do that my to-do-list have checklist’s!! I am currently taking a much needed break from packing things up and sorting things that I don’t need so that I can squeeze in a quick post. Even though we will have professional movers come in and pack us up, I have learned to be proactive about packing and to take a very hands on approach in making sure my things get where they need to be all in one piece.

A lesson that I seem to learn every time I move is that I always have more things to do than I thought! I apologize for my absence and my infrequent new post, but it will probably get worse before it gets better. It will get better though. We hit the road for the east coast in less than thirty days!! A part of me is excited about the start of a brand new journey and part of me is ready to be done with it. I love spending time with my family, but eight to ten hours a day in an SUV, no matter how large, is not necessarily my first choice.

We’re all trying to stay positive about it, but I really didn’t know that I would miss this place as much as I will. When we first got here the novelty of a new and exciting city wore off almost immediately, but as the days turned to years this place really grew on us. We made friends, started new endeavors, realized some dreams, and before we knew it, we really fell for our foster city. All too soon though, we got our orders and just like that it was time to get ready to start all over again.

Honestly, I love the Military lifestyle. It has afforded me so many opportunities that I may have never had otherwise. I feel so honored to love a man who has chosen to serve not only his family, but his country as well. I hope that my sons grow up to be like him and I pray that my daughters will choose men who remind me of him.  However, the older our children get the more we think of how beneficial it would be to each of them if we stop all the moving and put down roots.

We, like many other couples, often dream of buying a house and finally taking our share of the elusive, “American Dream.” I’m growing thoughtful now so I would like to pose a question to whoever maybe reading this; What do you dream about and why haven’t yo done it yet?” I would really love to hear from all the Military Mommas out there, don’t be afraid to share how yo feel.

Thanks for stopping by, I can’t wait to read your comments!
