People keep saying "Navy Wife" isn't a title. To be honest, it really isn't. It is a promise. You promise no matter where the Navy takes him, or no matter how many times he signs a contract, that you will stand behind him. That you will go where ever the Navy takes us. Some people take "Navy Wife" as an excuse not to get a job, or to sit around at home feeling bad, cause your Sailor is gone. You can't do that to him, you need to be strong. It maybe hard to find the strength to get up in the morning, but if you find something to occupy your time, it will go faster. I didn't learn that till I moved to Washington. When I moved here I had so many things I had to do, and I didn't have the time to ponder on the fact that he was gone. It honestly, made me feel better knowing that I was doing good, and that it took a lot of stress off of him. I am proud to be his wife, and nothing will change that.

The last two weeks I have been looking around the area. There is a lot of places to go, but it is no fun alone. I have been going to the Mall, and looking around town at the little shops. Just looking around base is a whole new experience. Now, making friends is a whole new story. I have been trying to make friends. It's hard, and you think with all the people who are going through similar or the same thing it would be a lot easier. It's not tho. It's hard to trust people in a new area, and I have noticed a lot of the wives ask about all your business. If you don't want something getting out, don't share it. Rumor spread no matter where you are. Not saying everyone is like that, just saying it happens. Just keep your priorities straight, and support your hubby. And look forward to him coming home! :)
I have been in Washington for two weeks now, and I can tell you it hasn't been easy. Let's start from the beginning. Trying to get into housing when you are the spouse, and not the active duty military member is hard. You have to have a power of attorney, and to get into the housing my husband and I moved into, you have to have a special power of attorney. After I got our housing, packing was super hard. You never realize how much crap you have, till you move. I couldn't take all of my things, and trying to figure out what was going in my car was hard. When the time came to put everything in my car, it sucked, and i am super happy my mom was there to help me. I left and drove the 24 hour drive from where I was in Minnesota, to my new home in Washington. Driving was definitely interesting, but the sights were beautiful. After getting to Washington and spending the night in my hotel, I explored base till I had my housing appointment. Believe me, at your appointment to get your housing, you will sign A LOT of papers. Since, I was signing for me and my husband, I think I wrote and signed both of our names at least a hundred times. After all the signing, I finally got to see my house! It was a super exciting experience. I didn't think my house would be this big. It was extremely difficult getting all our appliances and other household things for our house, by myself. Wal-Mart has helped a lot. I got my TV, Microwave, Toaster, household cleaners, and lots of other things there. I am super excited to have our new home tho! I don't think it will feel completely like home, till my amazing husband walks through the door. It has been exciting tho, knowing that this is our home! I got to get our appliances, our bed, and put everything together. I hope my hubby is just as excited to see it, as I am to show it to him. So, now it is time to wait for my husband to come home! :)

My military housing got approved, and I can't wait to leave. I only have 10 days till I do. I hope my husband is super proud of me. I am working so hard to get our house ready. I am gonna have to get a job and work even harder. :) I can't wait till he comes home, and I hope he knows I am doing this for us! :)

In less then 3 weeks I am moving. All military spouse have to move at least once. Right now I am moving on my own, and it isn't easy. I have to fill a house with stuff and I have no money to do it, and never realized how expensive it is to rent a house, even military housing is expensive. :/ It will be hard work, but I am so excited to be doing it and I will get a job and work hard to show him how proud I am of him, and I want to make him proud of me. :) I can't wait to have my hubby in our new home. <3
You spouse is working hard. They may not have the time for you like they use to, but they are thinking about you. They think about you all the time. Sometimes my Cuteface doesn't have the time to message me, but I know he is thinking about me, cause of the little things he says to me when he can talk to me. I miss him so much, but it is hard to be alone sometimes, but remember they are thinking about you and they do care about you. :)

There are nights like this. Ones were I can't sleep, and all I think about is him. I miss him so much, but I am the lucky girl who get's to crawl in bed with his blankie, and the teddy he got me. Soon tho, I will be the lucky girl who crawls into bed beside him every night. Remember, he has nights like this too. Nights were he get's into his rack with, let's say your teddy bear, and he cuddles with that teddy bear that once belong to you. He does that cause it is the closest thing to you, that he get's. Just keep reminding him you love him, and that soon it will be you he is crawling into bed with.
