The Hardest Easy Choice


Its been a while since I updated but now seems like the perfect time. My husband and I have been kicking around the idea of having him re join the army around the time I was due with my third baby . It made sense for all the things we want for our future. The plan for me to finish my degree ,the fact we can live in a bunch of new places without having to be tied down ,travel more and basically enjoy our retirement in 17 years more.

All that sounds great right? But the deployments and maybe the idea that my husband who haven’t been apart from since 2009 is now going to be away for long stretches of time .That part scared me to death . Then we spent a lot of time I mean alot of time and made the choice to join.

Fast forward to now. Tons of paperwork and then found out he has to be gone for 15 weeks because he missed the cut off for reentry with out basic by 2 weeks .Ughhh .Now I am writing  to you from my mothers house where I am residing with my 3 year old,2 year old and 3 month almost 4 month old until June when I can go meet my hunny and fly back with him.

This has been one of the best decisions I feel we are making for our family and still my heart aches for my husband every day . The kids keep me busy and I am attempting to catch up on my reading,starting my diet , tv shows etc but this first week is really hard .J  broke down crying today and it literally broke me heart. I think this is a good thing he had this extra training to kind of train us to for how it will be when he is away in the future and the kids can see that daddy leaves but he always comes back .  Anyways I just wanted to update everyone on on our journey and let everyone know I will be updating more regularly.

Thanks for reading
