So there is mega stress I am trying to let go of yesterday so I went to blog and remembered my laptop is still broken.
So I am blogging from my magic phone! I have to admit… I am really burnt out from two deployments. With only 9 months break in between them, it really has been a rough couple of years. So if you think I am being a baby in the following post…I am. I could go on for days about what I have learned from each deployment separately but it doesn’t make it less hard when things go wrong.
I know we are not staying in the military forever. My husband is enlisted came into the military with a Bachelor’s and has started a master’s program, we are outta here when the time comes. So I felt weird when in Disney cast members thanked me for MY service when they saw my military ID. I would correct them that no my husband is who serves, and they would correct me that I make sacrifices too. I thought about it, yes my husband works shift work that changes every 6 weeks, works long crazy hours, works 6 days then gets 3 days off at random for a weekend, it’s hard to plan anything, and yes there is easier options out there. It doesn’t matter. We just take it as life and try to think positively. Until something goes wrong like yesterday.
My dad’s college roomate/friend does our taxes and alerted to me to some MAJOR tax issues we didn’t catch because my husband has been deployed and well focused on more pressing matters.
After an hour and a half of battling finance people who should know more than me about military pay, w2s and all the other problems … I was irritable to say the least. I literally broke out a highlighter and pen – did math, drew a few arrows and symbols, and refused to leave 3 times when they tried to tell me nothing was wrong.
So leaving there pmsing, irritable, etc I decided to hit the library. I needed a break and finally found my card again. Checked out some fertility boosting food books. Picked up a birthday gift for a friend and instantly felt much better! Oh and I got to vent out my aggravation with the finance Airman to a friend.
Its always upsetting when things are screwed up and you are powerless to fix them. Last deployment I probably would have left crying and giving up on trying to fix it. Growth!
Anyways, the day wasn’t even half over- I had a long way to go. So I wanted to think of something else I could do to feel good. I was sitting down and swallowing my EnergyBits to help me tackle round two of the day and had an idea.
