Personal Banker In Training

I am happy to report that I completed my first week of training and... I like it! It's a huge learning curve. Absolutely everything is new.

Take the Risk

I did it. I went for it, accepted the new job, put my two week notice in at Golds Gym and begin working at the bank next month! The fear is still there. I'm terrified! I'm not sure that this new job will be the perfect fit for me. I have no idea if I …

What “Being Positive” Really Looks Like

I truly have been overwhelmed by all the support and encouragement I have received since my last post. I am so thankful for all those who reached out to me, shared their experiences, offer advice and words of comfort.

One Day At a Time

I am trying hard to remain "positive" and "upbeat" and to "thrive" through this deployment but the truth is I am struggling and my heart hurts so bad. Everyone says to "stay busy" and I have been but no matter how "busy" you stay, the sting of walking into an empty house just never gets …

Why I’m not moving home during deployment

No, I am not moving back home while he is deployed. Although I am sure both our families would prefer I did. I did consider it. We talked about that possibility a lot and he was supportive of me doing either. Ultimately, I came to the decision that me staying at our new duty station …

When Christmas Has to Come Early

As you know, my husband received orders to deploy sometime before Christmas. As unfortunate as it is, we are making the best of it and decided to celebrate early (and probably again when he gets back 😏 ). I ordered his Christmas gift the first week of November, way before we knew he would be deploying. …
