Army Wife, Ex Soldier
I was enlisted in the Army, where I met the love of my life. We have a baby now and I left the army life to be an army wife- just temporarily while I finish school. My priorities have changed since starting a family and sometimes I wonder if it was a mistake. As a soldier, I had enough interaction throughout my day and loved to come home to my husband and child. It was so relaxing to just be with them after a hectic day, but now it feels like I just sit at home (one car family at the moment) and do the endless laundry and clean the house. I don't really get a chance to get out and make friends. It is a day to day routine that makes me wonder if I should not have left the army. I don't want to make it seem like I am complaining at all, I just want to know how the rest of the housewives/ army wives do it. I try to keep myself busy but I get things done too quickly. I want to exercise but Insanity is too high impact for my injured feet and ankles. I would love to go run for a couple of miles but I can't take my daughter. Can someone help me find a good rhythm to get into so I can start to feel happy again? I am open ears if any of you have any suggestions. Thank you.
