A BIG change!

Today there are only 8 days left until I leave to see my husband. I cannot believe the time is almost here. I was able to talk to my hubby yesterday for three hours! It was the best Sunday I've had in a while. I miss that man so much. Ok so onto my big change...While I was talking to James yesterday he told me that the 10 week AIT training has now been extended to 20 weeks. 20 weeks without him? NO WAY...So in December I am moving my kids and I to Oklahoma. I was a little nervous at first but the more I read about where were going to be living and how much a furnished apartment would be ($625 btw) and that includes cable, all utilities, internet, beds, tv's, EVERYTHING plus I get to see James every weekend it makes it all totally worth it. I also realize that this is now my life...I have to roll with the punches and be ok with change...constant change. I have through prayer and a lot of self talking come to realize this.....I love the Army life. It has its rules and regulations and I actually like it. Will times be hard? Sure. Will James be deployed? Possibly. Through these first two months of James being gone I have come to see who I am. I am strong woman, mother, and wife of an American Soldier. I am also Army Strong.. :) Plus can you imagine going from hot Arizona desert weather to this?

I can't wait!


  1. Wow Heather that is so exciting!! Crazy, but exciting. It will be all worth it when you get to see your husband every weekend!! Good luck with the move, hope you have a great time finally seeing James!!

  2. I know...Im happy I get to be with him. Thanks Lindsay!

  3. Wow Heather! That is a BIG change, but so worth it. It looks so beautiful and it will be wonderful seeing James every weekend... You'd better keep up on this blog since we won't be having any of our "lunches" as often to catch up on things!!
