Having a hard time with this transition.... 20 days

help Pictures, Images and Photos

There has been so much going on.. With our time in Virginia, sadly (those of you who know me, know quite the contrary) coming to an end. I cant help but to feel so mixed up about what is to come. There isn't much time left to get our affairs in order. My In-Laws are coming this weekend to pick up my daughter for a couple weeks this summer, which will put us picking her up in Atlanta in 3 weeks. Love the fact she can spend time with family we don't get to see nearly as much as we would like to. But it is adding more TO-DO'S on our list. We still have a whole house worth of stuff in Knoxville, Tn. Where we lived prior to this whole, Army whirlwind of a life came into place. Not to mention I have still not gotten us on the Housing waiting list at Ft.Campbell. UGHHHH

So in knowing there is much to do and little time to do it in, Why is it that I cant bring myself to get started. I am dragging ARSE because between enrolling both my kids in school, finding a place to live, trying to deal with Transportation and Finance and struggling to get all the Information we need in order to properly get all our ducks in a row for this PCS, I am at a complete stand still. I wanted so badly to get outta here, and now I am procrastinating. What will it take for me to snap out of this? I feel like I am stuck and with no assistance from my "helpmate" I really feel alone in all this. I am not for a second blaming him but at what point do you get used to doing it alone? Someone must have the answer to this question...

Day-9 and 10 (30 Days of me)

Day 9: A photo you took

I took this picture three years ago in the Great Smokie Mountain National Park in Gatlinburg,Tn. I was very proud of the quality of this pic, but is the closest I will come to photography.

Day 10: A photo of you taken over ten years ago

So in the process I cannot find a picture older than 6 years old on my comp... so I will get back to this one.. sorry

30 Days of me Days- 7 and 8

I got a lot backed up over the weekend, but, it was well worth it!

Day 7: A photo that makes you happy

This makes me so warm inside to know that no matter what is going on around me my husband loves and appreciates me. Makes everything more than worth it! He amazes me everyday, even after 7 years together!

Day 8: A photo that makes you angry/sad

For obvious reasons....

I hope you all had an amazing 4th Of July weekend! I had one of the best Independance day EVER!. My husband was fortunate to have (as us Mil-Spouses call it) a 4-day!! <3 Hooah <3, for the Holiday weekend. So we got to have him all to ourselves since Friday 6 a.m. I have to ask that u excuse me for being absent from my new hobbie... a.k.a(My Blog)not that you all missed me, but because I missed it. Its like my daily venting source (Wheather it may be good or bad), I get it all out. That and the sence of equality I feel when I read other bolgs!

So with that being said, we didnt go out of town, or visit friends or family (who I miss enormously). We stayed in and watched movies, went to the park and paddle-boating, had a picnic, beach all day on Independance Day, watched phenominal fireworks at Ft. Menroe (Buckroe beach), And finally, today, we just relaxed and BBQ'd lesierly enjoying our last few hours together until back to Ft. Eustis for another week down in the completion of 29 and a half weeks of AIT. Only 25 more days of classes!! Wow, after tonight 25 days until our journey moves on to Ft.Campbell, KY. YAYYYY I mean... hmmmm There is so much to do, and so much I dont want to do. Like saying good-bye to the irreplaceable people I met here. Which BTW FYI they ROCK!! Once again we are transitioning into the next phase and as excited as I am I can Honestly say I am equally as nrevous!! I do love this crazy, beautiful, Army life. It may have ups and downs but what in this life doesnt' or better yet will give you the opportunitys to cherish life even more and appreciate it as you venture? I would say that this life warrents more appreciation for human sacrifice and the power of love than even I can give at this moment, But, I vow to allow more room for all the good and bad this life brings to the table.
