First, Our wedding was ten months ago today. I can believe it has been that long. I have moved twice since then, settled into our new life in NY and started a job I love. I can't wait to see what life has in store for us next.

The next few months are going to be pretty husband-free. My husband will be in the field A LOT in the near future and it has me returning to my single-living habits. I leave the TV on more and don't cook nearly as much. I love cooking for other people, but would rather do something quick and easy for myself. I am going to hang out with the other wives a good amount, but also spend some time just reading and finishing a few house projects.

A lot of Army spouses have a really hard time with their husbands leaving. I don't think anyone likes their husband to be gone, but I really try to keep busy and looking forward while he's gone. We were long distance for such a long time, that him not being around has been the norm for most of our relationship. In the next few months I want to:
1. Take Asha for long walks
2. Watch a lot of chic flicks
3. Re-watch some of my favorite Doctor Who episodes
4. Go read for a few hours on the Starbucks Patio
5. Try out 3 new recipes to debut when Lane gets back
6. Finish my fall lesson plans
7. Go to Zumba or yoga at least a few times a week
Do any of my milspouse readers have certain things they do more of when their husbands are gone?
One a sad note, I was so sad to hear that Sally Ride passed away. I can remember being inspired by her when I was a kid. My parents always taught me that regardless of gender, I could be whatever I wanted when I grew up. This song might not actually be about her, but I think about Sally Ride whenever I hear it. Thanks for inspiring a generation of women.
