Hello. (How are you? It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry).
Welcome to my first blog post on Teacher Life, Military Wife. This isn’t my first foray in blogging but it has been quite a while. I’m rusty. My writing skills have certainly lessened since having two kids which have sucked all the vocabulary from my brain, leaving me fumbling for words and struggling to form a logical sentence, never mind cohesive paragraphs. But, so is the life of all moms. At least, that’s what I tell myself.
So…Who am I? I’m your typical blogger. [Think Basic White Girl] Woman. Early thirties. Two fun, busy, sometimes whiny but usually happy boys. A sweet dog we adopted recently who has been so wonderful with our toddler even though he weighs more than her and has taken to trying to ride her like a horse. I am married to the Navy. Or rather, a man in the Navy, but really, they’re almost one and the same. I have been a teacher on and off for 10 years. Currently I teach English online to (mostly) adorable kids in China. I live in idyllic seaside town. I eat a lot of cookies which I bake myself. I am into CrossFit. I love a good historical fiction book about WWI or WWII. (I feel like I should add Starbucks and legging addicted just to complete the basic white girl status but those really aren’t me. We can just pretend.)
My hope with this blog is that I can keep all these memories which are fading so quickly. The times with my boys which drive me crazy. The delicious and high calorie dessert I consume daily. The highs and lows of Navy wife life. My every day life.
