This week, I decided to blog with good ol’ Mama Kat. I haven’t blogged with her writing prompts in a while. As a matter of fact, I’ve been quite the slacker on this blogging thing since… well, a long time.
This week, I’m choosing #1 of her five writing prompts to help get my creative juices flowing.
1.) What was your big dream for yourself when you were 18 and had graduated from high school?
If you’d like to blog with Mama Kat, you can choose this prompt or any other of her 5 prompts for the week here.
When I was 18, I have to admit that I didn’t have a whole lot of ambition to do much with myself. I was not college material and was not about to waste my time or my parents’ money pretending I was. I had plans to go into the Air Force.
My father had just gotten out of the Army and I was use to being an Army Brat. For me, it was an obvious choice. I, like most teenagers, was more than ready to get out of my parents’ house and be grown.
What was I thinking?!?!?!
I was young, ready to do my own thing, and had NO intention of having any kids! Nuh uh! Wasn’t going to happen. Didn’t like kids. Had a sister 12 years younger than me and I was scarred. Not scared. SCARRED! She. Was. A. Demon!
Aaaanywho, I procrastinated on this dream for the summer after graduation and on through the following year.
And then I got married.
To an Army Soldier.
That meant that I’d still get the benefits of being An Army Brat, without actually having to do the hard work…
Or so I thought!
Being an Army Spouse is quite possible just as hard as actually being the Soldier! Oh, and that part about not having kids…
