I can not believe it is December already!
I have been trying to stay busy and positive during the holiday season, and only mildly successful. I am still planning on doing weekly wishes- 1. I like the way it sounds, and 2. I think it will be good to stay on track weekly with things.
I have been stressed out about different things here and there, especially trying to get home for the holidays. Holy crap. I can’t “kennel” my cat, and I feel bad leaving her alone for too long – but FLIGHTS ARE SO EXPENSIVE. Yes, I was just yelling. I can not fathom traveling ( for 8 hours mind you it would be 12 to drive.. ) for about $550 dollars. Insanity.. I am going to wait on that purchase right there…
Enjoy the Season-
I have literally only spent 1 Christmas with my husband since meeting him. That is military life and I understand and accept it. It does however mean my deep love for the season is definitely not what it used to be. I feel guilty I get to be around my family and he is always stuck working or like the last two years in a row- Deployed. So I guess I hold back on my full unbridled excitement for it. I have no desire to shop for people, or desire to receive anything- and I really just want to try and enjoy it. So number one goal is to try and enjoy this season, and hopefully it will help pass the time quicker which means it will be next year sooner – which just means one step closer to the end of deployment!
Sending Care Packages-
I normally work really hard on my husbands care packages, but I feel like I need to refocus and do more. I just want him to be comfortable ( if that is possible ) and send my love in the form of consumables is also super gratifying. I just want him to have all the comforts of home that I can send in a box.
Be more Positive-
I have been pretty pessimistic since getting home from Vegas, well darn right negative about things. I would like to restart and be more positive going into the new year! I think letting go of things I can not control is a huge part of my negativity- but a super important thing to work on. I feel like the more positive I am, the easier it will be on my husband being away from me knowing I am fine- missing him- but fine and hopefully that will help him worry less 😉
My Tinkerbell and Princess Half Marathon Training-
I am going in this Tuesday for shots, and I am hoping for good news about my feet. I literally have been wearing orthotics for almost two months – NO bare feet ever- always in supports + running shoes. Also, for the past two weeks wearing a super ankle brace 24/7 too. This has had a super bad impact on my cardio, and I am pretty disappointed. I know I can always walk the Half Marathon, but I worked so hard – it is just killing me. So I am hoping that I get some good news that I will be able to train again. I do not really want to walk 13.1 miles when I know how much more fun it is to finish it faster 😉
