Hello humans of the internet! I hate my hair. We’ve talked about this before. It’s a weird texture, it’s a boring color and I’ve got a pretty extreme widows peak. So I’ve been on a bit of a journey with my hair in an effort to love it. Or at least not feel ugly.
Hello Humans of the internet! Today we are talking about dating Schulz. He’s a marine and I wanted to talk about what that’s like for me at home waiting for him to get back. Just a heads up for everyone this is going to get a little dark, because sometimes it’s really hard. Basically, this is a list of reasons why you should never date a member of the military.
Basically, my mind is constantly playing the Mumford & Sons song, “I Will Wait.” Constantly. All the time. Just the chorus because I don’t actually know all the words.
The constant fear that maybe whatever the last thing I said to him was the last thing I’d ever get to say to him
The fear that I am not strong enough to provide emotional support for all that he has to deal with.
What if he gets hurt and no one tells me because I’m just his girlfriend. I’m not a wife so no one would call me. What if he’s in the hospital and I can’t see him in the hospital.
This is the love of my life. I spend 50% of the day knowing that waiting is worth it and 50% of the day hating every moment that I can’t spend with him.
So basically instead of letting myself get to lost in my panic-stress self thinking about every worst scenario, I have been trying to focus on positives, like fish keeping and house plants. Of course Peggy takes up a lot of time and mental energy.
Sorry if this is a little sad. I try to have a positive swing on everything. But today the only real positive is that I love him.
I hope that everyone is having a great time and is feeling better than I am right now.
Hello humans of the internet! I got another Kawaii Box, just a few days after my birthday! It was like a birthday present to me! (I had a long day of putting together Peggy’s outdoor kennel so she can spend time running around when I’m not home instead of being cooped up in her crate.
I would like to take a brief moment to say that I’m actually now an affiliate of Kawaii Box so if y’all want you can click on this button down here. I really hope that is a “learn more” button. We shall see.
Now on to the fun stuff: a whole box of insanely adorable objects.
So That was the Sakura season themed Kawaii box. It is super cute. It was so much fun to open and I can’t wait to make my photo garland with the cat clips and write some letters to Schulz. I hope you click on the “Learn More” button up there. I also hope that I added it to the page correctly and there is a “Learn More” button up there for you to click on.
Hello humans of the internet! As some of you might know, I’m a farm girl from sound Carolina and as such spring means 3 things: baby chicks, plants, and Easter. I was in the feed store and almost, almost picked out five little assorted bantams, just to see what they’re grow into. However, with everything else in my life it just wasn’t the time for new creatures. But you know what it’s always time for more house plants.
Hello humans of the internet! I’m brining back Mystery Monday. Why? Because its the little things that bring joy. And I’m already anxious about waiting at home during this deployment that hasn’t even started yet. I hope y’all enjoy
Hello humans of the internet! I love fish. And maybe obsess over them as a coping mechanism when I’m worried about Schulz. Could be worse, could be drugs. But it’s fish!
Hello humans of the internet! As some of you might have noticed, we got a dog in February. Her name is Peggy and she is perfect.
I feel like I’ve learned a lot from her. She has learned very little aside from fetch.
Hello humans of the internet I’m finally writing this… several days into March. Sorry. But it’s here now
Good morning humans of the internet. You may or may not be wondering if I got everything done yesterday. The short answer is no.
Hello humans of the internet! Today is a super busy day for a lot of reasons. One of those reasons is that I’ve let almost all my chores be ignored between theater and Peggy. I’m compiling a list of all the things I need to do today, and one of those things is write a blog post, so my to-do list is now the blog post. Tune in tomorrow to see whay I actually got done.
