Training & Big Girl Panties

When researching the perks and possibilities of being an Army wife, I came across A LOT of negative complaints, reviews, advice, etc., etc. Interestingly enough, my Army Hubz has been off to field training to go blow up stuff with his tank for about three weeks and I have had the time of my life!

Before he left, I brainstormed on things I could do to keep me occupied while I whittled away at the days and lonely nights. I thought I had barely enough to fill the time. Then I did something wonderful…I jumped into a friendship with another Army wife. She is what one would hope for when trying to navigate the drudgery of Army Wife life. She has taught me SO MUCH. And we have laughed our way through it all. She’s a “hoot”!

My advice to ANY Army Wife is to jump into it! The Military “is what it is”, but hook up with some other wives and life seems much more fulfilling and FUN! All of us wives are in the same “boat” and we don’t have to explain so much to each other – which is fantastic. We know when to listen and when to help and when to just bust out the Margaritas.

This three weeks of what would otherwise have been a lonely drudge through the calendar, have turned out to be quite the adventure. I dare say, perhaps even some of the best days of my Army Wife life.

  1. This is wonderful news good friends to have fun with is not a surprise for you. I have always thought you are very special not short bus special that is my job.

    • You are hilarious! And, thank you for the compliment. But I have been keeping close to home for the past few months. It was GREAT to get out allot and see beyond these 4 walls. LOL It’s amazing to me how many Army wives are recluses. They don’t participate or “get themselves out there” yet they bitch and complain ALL THE TIME about how horrible the Army Wife life is. I decided to take a different approach!

Oh goodie!! I love comments!
