First Christmas Away From Home

I’ve had plenty of holidays away from my family. I’ve done Thanksgiving on my own a few times now, and plenty of birthdays and Easters without my family by my side. But Christmas is a first. I did it with my in-laws two years ago (they were just my boyfriend’s parents at that time), butContinue reading “First Christmas Away From Home”

Tasked For Deployment

Well… here’s the article that I was hoping I’d never have to write but knew that I would at some point. Adam is tasked for his first deployment. Yes, I am internally screaming. In all reality, I’ve known about this for a while now, I’ve just failed to update a majority of the world. I’veContinue reading “Tasked For Deployment”

Managing The Military: Fantasizing Of The Future

There’s a lot that has to do with the future of the military. You have to think ahead to deployments, and to return dates. You have to think about the good and bad possible outcomes every time they leave the house. But something in our life that we’ve been talking about, is the living situationContinue reading “Managing The Military: Fantasizing Of The Future”

Managing The Military: Working Out The Kinks

I’m the first one to say it… Adam’s job sucks. The hours he keeps, the secrets he holds, and the workloads which never seem to lighten. This is true of most, if not all, military personnel. Their spouses seem to take the brunt of the blow when it comes to working around schedules. Granted rightContinue reading “Managing The Military: Working Out The Kinks”

Grounding The Helicopter That Is Anxiety

Anxiety rules my life. It’s truly as simple as that. I have so much anxiety about so many things that it makes it increasingly difficult to live a simple A-to-B kind of life. Something as “easy” as making a phone call usually turns into me having an anxiety attack. Going to the store and notContinue reading “Grounding The Helicopter That Is Anxiety”

Setting Up Support Systems; LDR’s

[Written Oct, 2018] Long distance relationships are lonely. Even if you talk to your person every day, it gets lonely. So, because of that, you need a support system. But not just anybody- while your best friend might be some good help to distract you by going to the movies, they don’t really understand what’sContinue reading “Setting Up Support Systems; LDR’s”

My Military Family: The Island of Misfit Toys

The military- as stated by many people- is an entirely new family for anyone who joins. The military is a family of broken families; a family of lonely spouses, mix-matched loves, and an international bond that can’t be broken from distance. The military is far more than just people coming together for a greater good.Continue reading “My Military Family: The Island of Misfit Toys”

I’m Alone… Now What?

Adam left for his training on Tuesday, and I still can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that I’m alone. I’ve been on my own before, and I’ve been without him before, so technically it’s not that different from what I’ve already experienced. What’s different is the fact that I’ve never spent this longContinue reading “I’m Alone… Now What?”

Mission Melancholy

Adam is leaving Tuesday for a training mission for close to two weeks. While this isn’t our first time going through him being away from me, and not even our first as a married couple, it’s our first time while we’re living together. It’s my first time going through it without a support system withinContinue reading “Mission Melancholy”

Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust

It’s really easy to become unsure of your relationship, your other half, or yourself when in a long distance relationship. Heck, regular relationships go through the same hardships, but keeping your faith in someone half a world away in my case, is a little more daunting than someone who lives a block over, or evenContinue reading “Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust”
