Today has been nonstop. In exactly a week, the house will be totally empty and we will be in a hotel room. I can’t believe that things are moving so fast!!!
Per my usual forgetfulness, I am technically posting my weekly HIO post in the wee, small hours of Wednesday. This week, I’m writing from bed because I can’t sleep! Stupid anxiety …
Hey, it’s okay:
– if I bought the pinkest, girliest bicycle that I could find for use in Japan. It’s soooo pretty! See the picture below. I also purchased baskets for the front and back, a helmet, a lock, and night lights.
– if I dgaf about anything related to this locality anymore (well, minus my friends!) and that I’m mentally moving on to Japan. My time here is up, I’ve learned and grown all I can, I’ve become more then I imagined, and I’m ready to move away for a few years.
– if I’m nerdy-excited for our spouse chat tomorrow!! Yay!! 5pm EST!!
– if I like me and accept myself more these days … cuz I do. Not sure what changed in the last few days, but I’m in a good place right now.
One last thought of the night –
I’ve noticed something lately that is bothering me. I’m confused as to why some older/more experienced/former military wives and brats are mean to younger and less experienced wives. I haven’t personally experienced this recently, but a few friends have from mother in laws, wives of their husbands’ superiors, neighbors, etc get mean girl on them related to military wife stuff.
And, I’ll expand my statement to this: why are some military wives mean to other military wives? Aren’t we all in the same boat? Many of us inexperienced wives are just seeking help or advice, and we get put down. Notably, I hear a lot of women passing judgements on others, such as: “She’ll never make it as a military wife” or “She’s going to drive her husband crazy”.
Well, that buck is stopping with me. I’m going to stand up and say, right now, that I’m not going to fall into that mean girl trap and I’m going to hold myself accountable to mean girl behavior that I could display in the future.
End of rant. Life is good and happy over here!
Here’s a dose of floofy happiness for you all: corgi butt!
