Well everyone, we are going into 2012 in only a few hours. For some of us, it has flown by, for others; 2011 has dragged on. For me a little of both. I know that 2011 was by far not a good year for me, my Sailor & I had our way ups and our WAY downs this year, and luckily we ended it on a way WAY up this year, by getting engaged. I’m sure you all can agree that you & your man have had ups & downs this year. Like any couple, military couples go through them too.
Every year all women say to themselves “Okay [insert your name], your going to do [new years resolution of choice] and your going to like it and stick to it!!” Then a few weeks maybe even a month or two go by and usually we’ve either given up or just stopped whatever the resolution may be. My resolution for this year is to lose 10 lb. I am 5’5” and i fluctuate between my 130’s & 140’s regularly, this year I want to stay a solid 130 or mid 120’s. That is my personal goal. But I also want to set a goal for my fiancee & myself.(we want to tone our bodies this year together, he wants to become more buff *he already is very buff* and i want to tone my arms and stomach) Come up with a resolution you can both take part in! This will help your relationship stay strong and continue to have more good times than bad. Make it a goal to spend 10 extra minutes on the phone (if possible) or maybe even 10 less minutes (if you talk to him everyday), make it a goal to send him a care package every 2 months while he is deployed & he can take you on a nice trip when he gets back, make it a goal to loose weight together or bulk up? What ever you want to do, make sure you set a personal goal for yourself but also make a goal with him. It will be worth it :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful new year!

Well Bobby’s last day is tomorrow, I can hardly believe it. He took leave for 2 weeks & Im already used to having him in my arms again everyday. I havnt stopped crying all day today, I hate to see how I am tomorrow when Im hugging him goodbye for the final time for the next few months. Its hard, and even though I tell myself Im going to be strong, I find myself feeling so weak. I find myself questioning “How can I go on? How can I be without him?” I think one thing about being involved with anyone in the military you are so strong, but at the same time feel so weak. Nothing is going to make feelings like this better except for time, the more time that goes by the more used to being away from him I will become & then once more we will fall into the same pattern until we see each other again. I guess all I can say at this point is stay strong lady’s love your man with all your heart and all your soul, dont give up on him, dont give up on love. <3

We’ve all been there, our soldier or sailor comes home for a few days or for a few weeks on leave & it seems like time is our worst enemy because it just fly’s by! And every other week,month,or year without him seems like it just drags on. I know thats how im feeling, now that Bobby(my fiancee)’s leave is coming to a close tomorrow. It just plain & simple SUCKS. You know how when your man comes home & you make yourself promise not to count down the days of leave so you wont be sad, but you find yourself doing it anyway? And then the day before the last day rolls around and you feel like crap? It sucks! I know, now, dont think that Im just complaining here, the advice is coming. One thing that I have learned from short periods of leave is that doing the small things, like cuddling in bed watching a movie & just talking at home at dinner at home, mean WAY more than going out on dates & what not. My fiancee always plan on doing 1 good dinner/movie date the whole time he is home & we spend the rest of the time at home or doing small things. It means more & it helps to reconnect you better, or so Ive found. Putting the time out of your mind and focusing on the moments you have together also help. Having family around instead of friends is better as well, after a few different occasions my fiancee & I have discovered its best not for him to visit friends back home because it helps prevent unneeded stress & drama. Involving family however can be fun and not create drama, depending on your situation.
Remember though, leave is a very special & exciting time, ENJOY IT!!!
