Basic Training Bucket List

It recently dawned on me that I am going to have an immense amount of spare time on my hands over the next 5 1/2 weeks. I have always considered myself to be a very independent person, but now that C. is gone I have become increasingly aware that I spend eighty to ninety percent of my free time with him. Even the smallest tasks, such as going to put air in my tires now seems like a lonesome chore rather than a quick pitstop on the way home from Orlando.

Anyway, there is no reason to sulk over my newfound freedom. I have decided that I am going to make the best of these next few weeks. For all I know, this could be my last summer as a Floridian. After C. returns my life will return to normal, and I will quickly become a married woman. Honestly, there is nothing I look forward to more than being an excellent wife but I want to make sure that I thoroughly enjoy my last few moments as an unmarried, twenty year old college student.

Obviously, there is no better idea than to create a BMT/Summer 2012 Bucket-list to keep me busy while C. is away.

      Thank you! It’s exciting to have something to look forward to. I wish you the best of luck on your future bucket list πŸ™‚

  2. Love your list! I’m going to steal some of yours and create my summer bucket list today πŸ™‚

  3. I’m so glad you have come up with a list of things to keep you busy! That always seems to be the biggest reason military wives have a hard time. They don’t keep living their life, it seems like their life is on hold while their spouse is gone.

      Thank you! I could not agree more. Staying busy has been the key to getting through this with the least amount of heartache.
