Same Old - Same Old

I'm so happy for Blue. I don't think that anyone is as proud and excited for him as I am. I love seeing him come home from work with a smile on his face. I love that he looks forward to the next day. I love hearing all about what they're learning and doing.


With his life becoming so exciting, I've started to feel like my life,'t.

I've been a stay-at-home mom for almost 6 years now. I get together with friends, I'm involved in our church community, I do the odd thing here and there with the kids but none of those things feel very exciting. They are all normal to me. I like them'm just not sure how to put it.

Traveling is exciting to me. Going to Haiti last year was over-the-moon exciting. Boxing is exciting to me. I used to box (just for a little while...just enough to get the boxing-bug) at a local club and I enjoyed it so much. It was different and unexpected. Blue and I went on a hiking trip last year. We got a bit rained-out but it was a huge challenge, both mentally and physically. All of the things that I can think of that I'd like to do cost money or take time, both of which we seem to be a bit short on these days. Boxing. A puppy. Going back to school. Hiking. Rowing/Kayaking. Camping. Traveling. Boxing. A puppy. Did I mention boxing?

I feel as though I'm living vicariously through Blue, trying to live a bit of his excitement.

Does anyone else ever feel like this?


  1. Thanks for sharing. Absolutely. You are not the first officer's wife to feel left behind by their spouses career.

  2. Yuppers! I feel the exact same way! With hubs in the academy, we don't have time or money to do anything fun right now. I've been SOOOOOO bored. I work outside of the home, but when I'm not working I'm caring for the kids. Hubs is studying non-stop and can't cover me so I can go do something fun...although I'd much rather sneak away for some fun with him but those times are few and far between too. 8 weeks left then we're on to the next phase of our lives and this new career.

  3. Yep, I'm right there with you. I am always anxious to hear what happened during his day, as I find my days to be so boring. Whenever I share my day with him, it seems so blah in comparison.

  4. I can totally relate! I blog title is basically identified by what my husband does for a living. It's easy to feel like his job is "cool" enough for both of us...
