All sorts of happiness

I've had a lot of good things happen lately :) Got to talk to my husband for the first time in a week the other night which was amazing! and he told me that the packages I sent him FINALLY arrived and that he's getting promoted so that makes me super happy :D.

The Hunger Games is out at the movies!! and I'm going to go see it soon! I get to stay at my besties for the next THREE nights which is awesome cos she's awesome! Went out for dinner with another of my girls and had yummy apple pie (love me some apple pie!) AND I've got three days of relief booked this week which is fantastic cos I love teaching.

So, small things but they make me happy :) I'm learning to appreciate the small things.

I'm still trying to figure out how to use this journal - there's sooo much to work out and I just want to waste all my time here noodling around and playing with it. Turns out I need to just figure out way more about the internet and then I can make my journal look pretty and stuff!

Also, had a dream last night that one of my diamonds in the ring my hubby bought me fell out! Every time he's gone I get hell paranoid that something's going to happen to my rings and if something does happen to my ring than something's going to happen to him. I know that probably sounds stupid but that's where my mind goes. Probably cos it's the most meaningful thing he's ever given me.

I miss him a lot...we're almost four months down and everyday I miss him so badly it hurts. Somedays I can push it aside by myself, somedays my friends are there to help me out, somedays, like today I have Harry Potter and chocolate to get me through but none of that alters the fact that I miss him every second of every minute of every day.

Days and Weeks and Months

It seems I only write on here when the hubby's absent at night time... I guess I do do all my best writing at night time anyways so I suppose that's not so unusual and usually he is at home with me but tonight he has staff duty (24 hour 'desk watch') which means I'm all alone til about half past nine tomorrow morning.... gah no fun!

One thing I've really noticed in my year as an army wife is how much of a family the people surrounding you are. Back home I've always had amazing friends, and three best friends who I will always count as family and I know I can go to them through anything and everything. Then I've got my family who have always been absolutely amazing - and, hearing about how awful some other people's families are make me realise just how blessed I am to have the family I do. So when I up and left them all to follow my husband to Alaska it was definitely hard for me! Especially cos I never imagined ever leaving the home city I grew up in. I'm not exactly the adventurous sort.... I've always found it hard to make new friends and that's why it was just so amazing for me when I moved here and everybody kind of knew exactly how I was feeling and what I was going through because they've all been there and done it before, and they're all going through it now. The guys my husband works with are the ones that he is going to have to rely on when he's deployed. They are all brothers to him, and they would literally take a bullet for him. He trusts them with his body, and I have to trust that they will all bring him home safely. There's some random facebook thing that was doing the rounds a couple of weeks back about military friends v. civilian friends and when I find it I'll post it here....

I'm not really too sure what it is I'm trying to say here... I guess the thing is that I have people back home I know I can always turn to, who will always be there for me, who are my family and then I've got my new family here and I'm scared that wherever I go next I won't find people who mean as much to me, who I know will never let me down....

After my husband deploys I'm going back home for a year, and after next year I honestly have no idea when I'm going to make it back there again. Australia is a very very expensive place to get to... So I just want to enjoy next year as much as I possibly can, and spend time with the people I love.... Life is tough, and I think for the rest of my life there are going to be ups and downs but I am the luckiest girl who has the most fantastic friends and family and husband

First Post

My husband had to go onto base tonight to help his guys out :( So, I decided now was a perfect time to start my journal. I've been meaning to do it for a while but had to really kick myself to get it started. Yep, I'm a procrastinator.... I have soooo much stuff to do in the next couple of months before my hubby deploys and then I've got a whole year without him! So I definitely needed something to keep my head straight, and this seemed like the perfect idea. So yeah, here goes nothing....lets see how the year spans out huh??
