Hello there! I'm Jillz. I'm 26 years old and currently reside in Texas with my high school sweetheart turned husband, Joseph, and our two sons Travis, who was born on October 7, 2010 and Nathan, who was born on May 15, 2012 I'm a full time mother to my two children, a full time military wife to my husband who is in the Air Force, and an RN, but I'm a SAHM for now.
I blog about a variety of things from the challenges and joys of parenthood, the bittersweet moments of being a military wife, the rewarding and stressful moments at work, and just life in general.
So we’re back home now in NorCal after a nice ten day vacation in SoCal and Monterey. I had so much fun spending time with family. I was a bit sad to go back up here because it’s another reminder that in a few weeks we’re packing out to PCS to Texas! As much as I welcome new adventures for me and my little family, I am sad to leave my family behind. I’m starting to feel how I felt when my dad told me that we were PCS-ing out of Japan to head back to California. I was excited at first and then as the date grew near, I became more anxious and not wanting to leave.
This time it feels so different. I thought that I’d handle PCS-ing like a pro since my dad was in the Navy, but boy was I wrong. I feel so overwhelmed and I’m already anticipating that I’ll be somewhat lonely and feel alone my first few months in Texas. I get so anxious at the thought that I would be really far from my parents. Even though I live all the way up here in Northern California (about a good 8-9 hours away), I know that I can just drive down to their house if ever needed or whenever I want to visit. I can’t do that when I’m in Texas.
Sorry if this post didn’t even make sense. My thoughts are all over the place at the moment.
