prologue

With all the changes that are approaching with orders and what is to come in 2015... we are starting with our prologue.

After many fights, arguments, discussions we have decided that having room mates is no longer a option for us. While we have enjoyed having the 6 different Sailors and two different families live with us.. it has come to an end. We decided about a month ago that we needed to end this portion of our lives. It's not because of some dramatic event - it's just time. We are facing a lot of different changes in our lives and it's time for us to just be us. I have been very proud to share my home with so many wonderful Sailors. I've learned so much and we have made some forever relationships with them. It's just time for us to be on our own.

We can't see the future but I know that if I have six months left with my husband before he goes overseas then I want him all to myself. There are also simple pleasures that I miss, or we missed out on, by always having someone here. Like.. we want to walk around in our underwear on the weekends .. or lay around (wink wink) all weekend on the couch. I also know it's the small stuff that really matters. I want to be able to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas, especially Christmas, with my husband before he is gone for two years. (possibly) 

IVF is a huge reason. I want to be as de-stressed and relaxed as possible (which I feel is an oxymoron). Having people in your home all the time is stressful. Knowing that we are at the end of that road.. I want to make sure that we are giving it 110%. Our retrieval date is set (you can read about that here) and knowing it will go into 2015 if this round isn't successful is very stressful.

Whatever life throws us I know we will be able to handle. We believe that it's now time to take the venture on our own. It's been a great ride and we've really enjoyed a majority of the experiences. I'm excited to start this new chapter.

    1. i am getting there. We have a lot of stress right now but I feel we are making some great choices. I think not having someone else live in my house (expect one) will really help us destress. Plus we have the IVF stuff up ahead and the possible move due to orders. We needed this move.. it's so nice and quiet now.

  3. What Bea said! Awesome! Being in the position to live with your husband by yourself is an awesome lifetime experience. I'm glad you get to spend this time with him!

    1. I'm torn between being sad we didn't do this sooner and really loving that we helped so many people. I have learned the hard way that people don't always appreciate the kindness and thoughfulness you put into an action - like sharing your home. I think it's a good step for us.. I'm excited. The house is so quiet now. <3, Amy
