My husband is getting promoted August 1st. I’m pretty excited about it. I’ve been getting ready for the ceremony. We’re also looking at houses. Our VA loan came through and I have my eye on a 4 bedroom on a corner lot with a fireplace.
I know that this blog uses a lot of emotions–most of them painful. I want to make it clear that my life is full of joy. I’m tired of keeping my happiness a secret because I’m afraid to hurt the feelings of someone who is miserable. I’ve done that for too long.
So many good things have been happening. I’m in nursing school. My husband is getting a brand new stripe on his arms. We are buying one of three beautiful houses. I am getting close to seeing the end of 20 years of medical problems. I’m off Prozac. I’ve lost 25 lbs since my birthday. I’m training to run a 5K in November. I have the most beautiful, smart, and hilarious second grader. My husband loves me more now than he did when we got married. I have two of the best dogs on the damn planet. Life is really good.
Art works. It’s the best form of therapy in the universe. I am a whole person. My past doesn’t hurt. I embrace my mistakes for making me Alexandra.
Blah, blah, blah…whatever. I hope you readers are doing well, too!
