More Confessions of a Military Spouse

When we moved here and started unpacking, I set some things aside to donate to Goodwill.  I put them in empty boxes and stacked them in the garage to haul away.

A year ago.  They’re still there.  Ugh.  I promise they won’t get moved with us on the next PCS.

I resolve to finally handle the matter.  Um, maybe tomorrow.  Or next week.

My procrastination is embarrassing.

About Sarah

Sarah has been married to her soldier for a bit more than 10 years. In the past decade, they've been at six different duty stations in four different branches of the Army. They've also endured three deployments, six miscarriages, and a failed IVF. Sarah's blogging focus has shifted some in the past five years, from common military issues to something more personal: the difficult intersection between the military and infertility. It's hard for some couples to start a family; it's even harder when one person spends a lot of time on the other side of the globe. But Sarah was lucky enough to declare Mission Accomplished when their daughter was born 10 days after her husband's return from Afghanistan. And she tries to remind herself how irreplaceable and cherished that daughter is now that she's entered the terrible two's. In her free time, Sarah is a pioneer housewife: knitting, crocheting, and cooking ... and sometimes even firing a weapon.
