Sad day :(

I knew that this day was coming and I thought I was prepared for this. But reality is harder than I thought it would be. My husband is leaving the Air Force.

Positives: No more deployments
Closer to family
Able to finish school at the school I wanted
Going to school with the husband again

Negatives: No more security- money, health, home
Loss of independence
Leaving the greatest friends I have met ever
No time for the break I need
Stress of having to pack our house and move it all
3 bedroom house to a one room living space with the in-laws (their okay)

I will say the same thing I said when we joined the military: I support him no matter what. I never thought 5 years ago that I would be a military wife. And I never thought 2 years ago that I wouldn't be a military wife anymore. I really do like this life (other than the horrible separations that are part of life in the military). However, he does not seem to feel the same.

With that said, looks like life is changing for us.

No more break for me...

Looks like all that time I was looking forward to just got cut in half.

I called my boss today to say that I don't think that I would be able to work due to Daniel and I moving, but she was so desperate. I was the best worker she had. I had the most experience and education and a love for the job. I saw a need and taught those children. I love two year olds. I look forward to working with them again, but I was so looking forward to the all day availability to work on my scrapbooking. The good news is that my schedule is allowing. I will have a good portion of the day to myself. And the boss lady and I have a deal that I can be out of there by the end of the month, just as soon as we get word.

Husband comes home Friday from a week of volunteering at the special olympics. I went up to see him Tuesday and eat at Eskimo Joe's. Good food, but nothing I haven't had before. Daniel bought me a shirt and a cup. This week end is going to be full of rest and crafting. Perhaps even a jog or two if the weather allows.

Look forward to posting more often again. See ya later gators!

Craftin' Soon

Finally classes ended today! This means a less stressed me, that is until I get word of our moving date. The Air Force is quite stubborn on giving us that information or approving it. However, until that date is given I do not have anything to do but scrap and craft!!

I am in desperate need to start and finish that 8x8 scrapbook that is to be given as a gift the end of June. Pictures are the motivation I need. Only 20+ photos to scrap individually. It will be great when its done, but until then... scrapbook room here I come.

I also put on a dress I made today and loved it, but need to alter it some since I made it in under 2 days. Sewing will be on my to do list as well.

I feel as though I should post the lovely blog I am loving. She is trying something new and doing great at it. It is my guru's site: You just have to go see it.
