So, here I am, new at the whole blogging world thing... I have been told that this is the thing to do and the place to do it.
I have been an Air Force Wife for the past 19+ years. I have been picking up and moving to new places for the last 19 years. That is a lot of moving for someone whose hometown isn't really a town at all, but a grocery store, post office, gas station, a bank and a restaraunt. There is much more there now, but growing up if you blinked while driving past, you would surely miss it. :0)
Shopping was so much more than a quick run to WalMart or a trip to the Mall. If we wanted to go to the Mall, it was an all day venture and we didn't have a WalMart.
So, when I married the man I love and set out on the adventure of a lifetime, my eyes were opened to some amazing things. We have lived in Texas, Washington (which is where we are both from), Alaska, Colorado, California and Virginia. Each place we have lived has had its ups and downs, but we know without a shadow of a doubt that the Air Force assignments were God's vehicle for placing us where He wanted us to be for that time. I have met some amazing women across this country. And I have seen some of the most wonderful sites, God is an awesome artist and the colors and designs He comes up with are inspiring. I really do love the ocean and the mountains and I think that is what I miss most about home.
My loving husband decided this year was the year to retire. YIKES! I wasn't sure how to respond to that. But after the initial shock wore off, wait, it hasn't completely sunk in yet, I have begun to do what Air Force wives do, plan a move. Think through what items stay and what items must go to lighten the load. This is no easy task for me as I am a pack rat at heart and have stuff, stuff and more stuff. My wise friend told me that this was "The year to get your 'stuff' together". I have taken her seriously and am trying to do just that, but I find other things to occupy my time and put it off.
This is my first Post...I shall get better with time.
