So He finally did it after 5 months and a 3 month break medical rehabilitation break, B has finally finished IBOLC. I have never been more proud of my husband for all his hard work! However, him working so hard often left me home alone many weeks while as far as I could tell all he did was run through the woods. It was a challenge to say the least, be in a strange new home with the only person I knew here gone just about every week. Yet here I was... what was I going to do with all my time, I wasn't working and couldn't get a job in the field I had spent 2 years studying in.
But I quickly made friends that made all the difference for me over the last 2 months! Without them I would have been lonely and miserable. Having a group of people to be a family away from family makes every place in life better.
So here is to my husband, an Infantry Officer!! And to here are to Army Wife Sisters, the women who kept me sane!
Hi! I am starting a blog in hope that my experiences can help reach someone else and make their day whether its a recipe, a funny picture, an insightful story or a helpful tip!
So far I have been on a crazy adventure I never thought my life would take; its crazy but wonderful. By sharing my experiences I hope that I am able to shed light on a rather unspoken about part of military wife life that I have been thrown into, the world of training and constant field exercises. Things nobody warned me about, but how I have been able to slowly but surely make it through and am about to come out on the other side as my husband prepares to graduate from Infantry Basic Officer Leadership Course (or IBOLC) soon. We have both grown so much as our time as husband and wife, and mostly have spent that time apart while I finished my graduate degree and he began training in a different state. Now we are together and after many attempted, and some successful furniture DIY's we are slowly building a home together.
So I just want to say thank you for anyone who may ever read this blog.
