My time as an active duty Soldier is coming to an end. On Thursday, I will sign out on terminal leave and say good-bye to working full time, the only life I’ve known for the past 3 years.
There’s been ups and downs but all-in-all, being a U.S. Soldier has been good for me. I’ve learned a lot and gained valuable experience so I can start a good Master’s program and of course, I met my husband through this job.
Right now, I’m very excited to not have to work everyday. Between work and Piglet, I am exhuasted. I want to sleep in for a week just to catch up. Of course, I will still be in the Reserves, so 1 weekend a month, I will once again put on my ACU’s and “play Army.”
In between then? I have no plans.
I have a couple craft projects I want to do and Piglet and I are going to take a Mommy-and-Me swim class. Other than that? Nada. I should probably study and take the GRE so I can get accepted to the Master’s program I want but I probably won’t. I’m not sure I want to get the degree and not know if I will ever use it. What if I never work full time again? What if it’s all a waste?
I don’t know.
Right now, I’m going to work out twice a day because my diet has plateaued. Thank goodness, I’ll have time now. I want to drop at least 15 pounds before The Hubster comes home for R&R this fall.
