One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.
(please feel free to use this!)
I love learning more about my fellow MilSpouse bloggers. So I created a weekly meme, which has now morphed into a monthly meme. This happens the first Friday of every month. To do this, I’ll post a list of questions the day before (on Thursday so you can have your blog ready on Friday). Come back here on Friday (like today!) and enter your blog post into Mr. Linky below so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs. Please leave a comment too! And please feel free to use the button above!
1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed?
I would have insisted that Huzzy get the Christmas decorations out of a place that I can’t reach. We never put anything up. Well, I take that back… Huzzy saw how disappointed I was on Christmas Eve that we didn’t have anything up, so he went and found the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree that I had sent to my soldier pen pal a few years ago. Unfortunately, she was injured before Christmas so the package was sent back to me. So that tree’s been to Afghanistan and back!
2. What was your favorite thing that happened in December?
Honestly, I think New Year’s Eve was, but I’ll get to that in a minute. Besides that? Just having Huzzy home this year for only the second year in our marriage (this is our fourth holiday season married). It was lovely.
3. What are you looking forward to in January?
Hopefully getting a BFP in from our first round of Clomid. Other than that, I’m looking forward to starting my Master’s Degree. Class starts on the 14th!
4. What did you do for New Year’s Eve?
This year was our very first NYE together since we’ve been married. It was our fourth, but first together! He was home last year, but still had duty. This year, he purposely took leave so he could have the time. We spent the evening having dinner with my husband’s friend, Poekitten, her husband and their adorable little Munchkin. Right now, she’s pretty much the only kid I can be around that doesn’t make me sad or jealous. We played games and just had a ton of fun. Huzzy’s friend left around 10 to go hang out with other people, but we continued playing games and actually didn’t stop until somewhere after 1 a.m.!
5. What are your hopes and wishes for 2013?
My hope, of course, is to be pregnant and give birth to a healthy baby. I’d also like to continue strengthening my marriage with Huzzy since by the end of the year, we’ll be halfway finished with his shore duty and he’ll be just 18 months away from going back to sea every six months for three to five months (only getting 8-12 weeks off in between before going out to sea again).
