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!
