Oddly, it seems we've reach a point in our marriage where there is little preparation! That sounds odd but I will explain. When we first got married, we were a month out from moving to a different state. Then after moving was finished we prepared to move again in about seven months. Then six months after our second move we hit our first deployment. So on and so fourth in month increments. As a married couple, we have literally never spent more than 10 months in the same state as one another. Even way less of consecutive days together.
Now we've hit a new stage. The stage of no deployments... and to be honest I don't think either of us know what to do! There are no big events upon the horizon weighing down on us. Nothing creeping up on us. No nagging thoughts of what needs to be done before this monumental deadline. What do you do in a stage of no preparation? We won't even hit the next step of preparation for another year. Which for me seems like a lifetime away.
What is day to day life like without some big change looming? This is the exact answer I have been mulling over for the past couple of weeks. I'm still not sure of the answer. But I have some ideas.
I have to imagine it's relaxing. I assume there will be more time for us to delve into things we enjoy. Obviously more time spent together. What I am sure of, is we are in for some learning!
