but who isn’t from time to time?
Mostly of my life and situations, but as the Mr. will tell you it sometimes flares up enough to singe him a bit too.
I am a worry-wart and a planner.
Two things my husband is not, but also two things he doesn’t quite understand.
Why worry? Why stress? Why plan?
It’s the Southerner in him, I swear.
What you should know it that all the traits listed above in NO WAY correspond with Army Life.
I am selfish: The Army must always come first.
I’m controlling: The Army has the control. (not me, go figure)
I am a worry-wart: The Army gives you PLENTY to worry about
I am a planner: The Army CONSTANTLY changes their minds, and consequently, ALL of our plans.
Since getting married into the Army I have made a conscious effort to go with the flow and try not to get upset at things I can not change.
So the Mr. was supposed to have the day off. Oh, they want you to come in? Ok.
The Army doesn’t really give a rat’s behind if I’m sad or disappointed or if I haven’t held a conversation with my husband in more than a week.
I’ve learned to work inside my bubble. Only focusing on the things I can change.
As an Army Wife that bubble is very teeny tiny, but you know what? Teeny tiny is much easier to manage.
