'DISTANCE' shouldn't matter because at the end of the day, we're all under the same sky..
So happy to be with my Marine after 3 months in bootcamp!
Tim is in a grumpy mood today.
He has been on and off for awhile. He says that the management around his hanger is pretty blah… They usually don’t give him and his coworkers tasks to do until the very end of their 12 hour shift so they always end up having to stay even longer. On the days that he is lucky to get normal shifts, I know that he has to redo a bunch of work with the guys because half of them are kind of clueless right now… He gets fed up with it, I can see why…
It’s hard to snap out of a negative mood sometimes, especially when you are used to things like this in your daily routine, I guess…
I’ve talked to Tim a lot about trying to switch to a more positive mindset. And he gets it, I know he does. But I guess right now there’s no way for me to blame him for being a giant fart all of the time… he knows this is what he has to expect every day and why would you be excited to work with a group of inefficient people? He knows his job definitely isn’t all bad, and I am always happy on the days he comes home happy with a cool story about what he has done. But lately he has not been looking forward to work AT ALL!
It’s such a bummer! I wish there was more I could do to cheer him up.
Sometimes I get a little flustered with him because I feel like he just dwells on all of the not so great stuff and doesn’t even try to be positive. I would never say that to him though because it would be sorta out of line… I mean he is homesick and freezing in Alaska and doesn’t enjoy his work right now. Not to mention that the engine in his truck has to be REPLACED because car dealerships suck. So he’s also without a car right now. That’s way more than three strikes against him right there. He isn’t always upset and definitely likes stuff about Alaska… He’s gone on some cool adventures and made some good friends. I really just wish he would focus more on thoooossseee things more often though. Once you start thinking positive it is much easier to see the good in eveerrryyythhiinggg.
I tell him this all the time, but ya know. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make em drink…
As you can tell (lol), I am not good at keeping things brief, so since he is being a turd right now, I know it’s not a good time to bring up the merits of positivity. He’d see it as a lecture or something and it would just get real, real bad haha.
Obviously I don’t want to say too much and annoy him, so for now I am text messaging him pictures of puppies. Tim likes puppies. Everyone likes puppies! Puppies make everything better!!!!
So hopefully that will help… And I am going to visit soon so that should help a lot too.
Anyone whose further along in this whole shindig… Do you know how much things change once airmen actually finish their CDCs??? It would be really nice to know. Cuz right now I am really holding out hope that once Tim is finally done with all of his CDCs, things will start looking up at work.
Grateful for all service members, past and present, for their dedication and service to our beautiful country, including my family, some of my greatest friends, and most importantly my best friend and my better half. Three and a half months since my sweet boy has been home from Afghanistan and each day is sweeter than the last. I know you hate being thanked, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you @natedizz775. I love you.❤️🇺🇸 #IKnowThisLifeIsCrazy #VeteransDay
