Wordpress Here I Come!

For those of you who haven't heard yet, I am moving my blog to Wordpress. I have already imported all the posts and comments on this blog, so I'm not losing anything. THANK YOU GOD!

I wanted to move to Wordpress because everyone else is doing it! JUST kidding! I like Wordpress. There's so much you can do with it. (like have pages, use plug ins and widgets, etc) There is a bit of a learning curve, but I have been playing around with it for about a week or so. I haven't gotten everything set up the way I want to yet. It is a work in process. My blog design is not finished yet, but it will look awesome when it is!

I really hope I don't lose any followers with this move. I have feedburner and email subscriptions on the new blog and will soon have my Google Friend Connect as well. I hope you all stick with me!

My new blog address is

As well as the move, I am hoping to implement a new schedule for my blog. Hopefully my posting won't be so few and far in between.

Be sure to check out my new home and let me know what you think!

Much Love,

How Do I Do This?

I try not to think about it any more than I have to. But it's like this dark rain cloud following me everywhere, waiting to burst.

The closer it gets, the more real it feels. He's packing his stuff, making piles of stuff for me to send him.

I can't sleep.

I lay in bed for hours. My mind going a hundred miles a minute. It doesn't stop.

What do I do?!

I have so many amazing people in my life, friends, family, other military wives. They are all telling me that I'm strong. I will be ok. I can do a lot while he's gone. Go to school, volunteer, lose weight, etc. And I know that I can and will do those things. And more. I'm not worried about those times.

I'm worried about the times when I'm at home. Alone. That's when the tears will come.

Heck, they do now! This is so hard.

This is me. Honest.

Much Love,
