No Longer in the Lead

Last night was the Company's first Family Readiness Group (FRG) meeting with the new leader. It felt so weird not having to show up a couple of hours early to get everything ready. I pulled into the parking lot about 10 minutes before the meeting was scheduled to start and felt like I was running late. I have to admit, not having FRG as a responsibility has relieved a huge weight from my shoulders. After the meeting, the reality that I'm no longer the FRG leader finally sunk in.

Even with the drama and complications that the FRG sometimes brings, it's something that I have loved doing for the past three years. It feels good to help people and make a difference. There was always something new for me to learn as well. I started getting involved with the FRG almost as soon as I moved to Georgia as a new army wife. All of the classes and experiences gave me a jump start into army life. You also meet tons of wonderful people which can be difficult when moving to a new installation.

It's bittersweet to finally be taking a break for a little while.

Hubster finally got his orders today which means we are officially heading to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. The movers should be here in less than a month, which is pretty exciting! After the movers come, we'll have about a month to visit family, vacation and then get ourselves to Missouri. It's the first move we'll be doing as a family with two little ones, so I hope I don't stress myself out too much. Planning and preparation will be key.

In other news, we have people coming to check out the house this afternoon. It's a bit nerve wrecking and kinda just weird. Imagine, strangers, in my house, poking around and opening doors. My closet needs a little bit of work and now I've got to spend the afternoon cleaning up the kitchen since the dog decided to throw trash all over last night.

I'm not sure what's gotten into Caesar lately. I used to be able to leave him home alone with no problems. Now anytime I leave him unsupervised, he tears the house apart. Yesterday it was the TV remote while I was grocery shopping. Last night, a container of dip that I left in the sink. I can always tell when he's done something too, since he walks up to me in a scared depressed mood.

  1. Fort Lost in the Woods! Good luck with the move :)

  2. ohhhh there was a chance of us going to Ft Leonard Wood too, but luckily we just got orders to stay here instead. I didn't know you were a FRG leader! I'm not too involved anymore... actually they don't even know I exist here. Kind of a good but bad thing. I never know what's going on~

  3. I was at FLW for 8 years. I still know a lot of people that live there. Heck, we have a house there.
