Something that I really struggle with when it comes time to PCS is being done when its not quite time. By this I mean mentally checking out and finding myself not caring anymore.
Sadly I started on this path last week and its been a downhill spiral ever since! It is difficult for me to care anymore and that is not who I want to be. I don't like the process of PCSing and in the coming weeks I can't avoid it. I do not enjoy preparing for the movers. I do not enjoy trying to foresee what we will need in the next few weeks/months we are stuck in temporary housing. I do not enjoy saying goodbye to friends.
But this is my end of the commitment that Joe and I made together almost 7 years ago. I committed to follow and accept the orders we were given by the United States Air Force. I will make each place, whether its an apartment, a six-plex, a duplex, a house or even a hotel room (and yes we lived in a hotel room for 4 months!) our home for the time that we are there. I may not like every assignment or location but as a family we will learn to live there and survive. Because sometime just surviving is all you can do!
So for now I am resigning to return to Minot and complete our commitment here. And I will try my hardest to enjoy it too.
