It's March!

It's hard to believe that we are already in the third month of the year. It seems like just yesterday my DH (dear husband) and I were celebrating New Years Eve. I can hardly wrap my head around the fact that two months of the year have already gone. It seems like time goes by so much faster as an adult than as a child. I can only imagine how much faster it is going to go by when we have kids of our own!

March means a lot of things to me this year. It's the month I say goodbye to my husband for a year. It's the month that I have to prepare to move myself, our dog and cat without my husband. It's seeing commercials on television and saying 'my husband will be gone with this happens, or that movie comes out.' It's not an easy month for me, but I am going to be strong and get through it. Many, many people have been in my shoes before, and many, many people will stand in them soon. I could be standing in them again someday, especially since the plan is for DH to retire from the Army. I can't believe that it gets any easier, no matter how many deployments we go through. I am going to make the most of this deployment. I want to try new things, and maybe find more of myself that hasn't been uncovered yet. I hope that you will join me on my journey. I may not post everyday, but I will post as often as I can.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Ugh! March does not sound like a good month and I feel for you having to face a year long separation. But you can do it and I know you'll not only survive the upcoming year, but you'll thrive too. :)

Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging. I am an Army girlfriend, currently going through a deployment, and this world has been very helpful! Enjoy the rest of your time you have with DH and good luck with all that's coming your way.

It doesn't really get easier, but you get better at it. You have a great attitude about it, and I'm excited to hear how the year unfolds for you as you seek your own adventures and get to know yourself a bit better! Deployments can only be as miserable as you make them... allow yourself to cry, but then push yourself through it and try to keep busy. You're joining a wonderful group of mil spouse bloggers, so you'll have a support network when you need one!
