Sometimes it's just not right.

I've been pretty much immobile for the past few days. I feel emotionally paralyzed, and my crying fit a few minutes ago finally told me why: It is suddenly hitting me how abnormal this life is. I'm not ungrateful, at all, but this just ain't right (as we say in the South). We live at a hospital. I mean, this whole place... there is nothing normal about it. And I wonder if "they/it/life" get away with it because the military lifestyle is so strange that we become accustomed to it, but now it feels like we're doing the only thing weider than that. In this moment, that's what it feels like.

Life just keeps getting "curiouser and curiouser," as Alice would say. And I'm going mad.

I just noticed that this is my 100th post as the Warrior Wife. Now isn't that apropos! 


  1. Bless you. Bless you. Ugh. I wish I could make it easier for you. BIG hug!

  2. Hey,
    So I just stumbled upon your page and I must say you're truly inspiring. I am also a military wife, however nothing compared to the warrior that you are. I wish you nothing but happiness.
