Since this is the very first posting to my blog I figured that I would introduce myself a bit for those that actually decide to read this blog, here goes nothing.
I'm an Army Wife. Yup, that's right. I've been an Army Wife now for just over three years and yes I'm counting. No, I'm not counting the days until my husband leaves the Army (I'm married to a great guy that wants to make a career of this job) but I am counting the days so to speak with the experiences and friends I've made over the past three years, five months and several days. I won't give the exact dates or names in this blog as I need to remember the rules of PERSEC and OPSEC. Yeah, okay, sure. But truly its something as an Army Wife that I need to remember so that others are not put into harm's way.
I've been married for a touch over five years and most of that five years has been spent apart from my spouse. Army life isn't easy by no means on any family member whether its the spouse sitting at home dreading that phone call that tells you your spouse has been injured or if you are the parent of a soldier hoping for some communication from your child letting you know they are alive and well. But there are the joys of being part of the Army family too.
In this blog I will be hopefully telling my readers more about both ends of the Army life. I will include even the mundane part as well as the exciting bits as most of the Army life is just the ordinary routine.
Before I get too sidetracked I'll give you bit more about me besides the obvious that I'm an Army Wife which means I'm a female. lol duh! I'm also approaching middle age fast, trying to start a family and coping with my disabilities as well as trying to maintain an air of normalcy.
I'm going to have typos and grammatical mistakes I just ask that you readers bear with me. Hopefully you'll laugh with me, cheer me on and geez, I hope you don't cry but I can't promise a single thing as Army life has its ups and down.
