Not Normal

My husband came home on Monday with our gifts for this year’s Birthday Ball.

I had asked for a shelf to be put up in our hallway to put these gifts on display and my husband told me no. The reasoning behind this no was that he did not want to do that at this house as if we were leaving soon. Keyword is the as if part of that sentence. We will more than likely be leaving soon but there is no such thing in plan yet. So why not hang the dang shelf?

There is no more work to be done in our house, no change to be done, no new to be bought because of the possibility of a move.

I understand his no and I am not complaining that he said no. I wouldn’t want to work on a shelf to only have to take it down to put up somewhere else.

But this is our life. This is something that we are going to have to do a lot.

When do we accept this as normal? When do we accept that constant work is okay? When do we get some kind of system down for this?

Life in the military is not normal. Little things like this serve as a reminder why it is not. I am about to resign the lease on our apartment but I cannot hang a shelf. We are still living in this house but this house is “done”. Best believe the first thing to be done at our next house is this shelf. Just to make a point. So, I stay looking at Pinterest planning for our next home while sitting in our current home.

Again, I am not complaining. I love my life and wouldn’t change it for the world. All I am doing is simply sharing and explaining my life.signATURE
