I used to not really blog about military family issues before he moved back. The reason for that is because I can't talk about his job but also I had other ways of dealing with the separation. When he did move home talking about the military issues that I could was helpful for me because it kept me feeling connected to something. Over the past couples weeks though I've realized that a change needs to happen again. I'm not going to be able to deal with what's in front of us the same way I've dealt with everything from the past year and a half.
I really have gone back and forth with this since the summer but I am certain I don't want to shut down the blog. Finally, I know that for sure. However...there will be changes coming. I won't be writing deeply personal posts about military life. Of course, its not going to disappear from the blog. I know there are a couple of promotion/graduation type things I'll want to share but there will be mostly other stuff here. I will get better about posting pictures, videos, and maybe even some sewing tutorials and recipes.
Over the past year I did a lot of stuff. And I don't mean that in a bad way. I'm proud of the articles I've written and the projects I've done for certain military organizations. I feel like there was a season for that. My biggest concern in the coming days, weeks and months is making sure Lucy adjusts well and has as stable a life as possible. That means taking on less and I'm super happy about that. So that's the other reason you won't see a lot of serious military related posts around here. I hope you'll stick with me though! I know this blog has been "transitioning" for a while but I finally feel like I know where its going because I can see what I need to be focusing on now.
