Reflections of March

I have to say, once again, I am happy to see another month go.  This month wasn't nearly as horrid as the last, and it seemed to go by a little quicker.

Reflecting on the month, there were a few firsts.  Stryker's first day of Doggie Daycare, my new (and first) FRG position as a co-lead.  There were also stressful and not so stressful work days.  Some major changes at work.  Some major hoops we've had to jump through for the Army.  Lots of baking.  Hints of beautiful Washington weather which will hopefully carry on into the summer.

It's really strange to feel so grateful that 31 days of your life are gone, because people often say live each day as it were your last.  For some reason I have a very hard time doing that.  I take advantage of opportunities if they come my way, most of the time at least.  But it's very hard to be "normal" and have that complete joy of living your life to the fullest when you know such a large piece of it is missing.

With that I say goodbye to March, and hello to April.  Hopefully April gives me very very good things.


  1. I am the same way, I want to live life to the fullest as I feel guilty if I dont but I find it impossible to do so without my husband here. I will be very happy to wake up to a new month tomorrow!

  2. I understand wanting the months to go by fast! I love the new background, btw.

  3. One day down, is a day closer...that's what I keep telling myself. It's true though. We ALL feel the same way. My hubby is also deployed. I have a blog that I write about to him, Goodnight moon! You should check it out.

    I'm glad I found your blog! I would follow you..but for some reason, the area is blank? Nothing is there?

  4. Amber, I have a suspicion that that's operator error:)HA!

    I love this post! It's so true, as a military wife you don't always have the luxury of "living each day like it's your last". Some days you're just trying to get through!
