A week of Farewell's

This week has been a tough one in our house.  It was the week of farewell's.  I've touched on this in a couple of other posts about how this is the year that most of our Military friends have been posted out.  I chose to ignore all these postings up until now and tried to block them from my mind.  Mainly because the people being posted out, mean a lot to me. 

This year started off tough when our good friends and neighbours were the first ones posted.  And it sucked even more because they left while we were away over New Years - so to me, it didn't even feel like a real goodbye.  That goodbye was difficult for me because Christina got me through a lot of the ACSO course.  We'd been friends all during the entire time the guys went to RMC, we both got posted here, we shared a duplex - which was funny and random that it ended up happening that way, and survived the ACSO course together.  Then they got posted out and we stayed here.  Now - don't get me wrong - I am SUPER happy and thankful that we got to stay here, especially since my parents live here.  It's awesome that we are able to have family in the same place and we are definitely taking advantage of it because we don't really know how long it will last.  But it was tough to say see you later to them.

This week was rough for me, because the people leaving were so close to me.  B.  I don't know even know how to describe her.  She is one of my closest friends in this world.  I've known her since I was 9.  We used to play together in elementary school, we lived down the street from each other in the PMQ's.  Then when she got married, she introduced me to Paul.  She is the whole reason we are together.  And she and her husband are Annika's godparents.  It sucks that they have left, because although we have been close on and off for the past 23 years, it felt like we were definitely getting closer, our kids were friends (both Annika and Nora claim her son as their boyfriend lol) and it just sucks that they are gone.  

The other people leaving - B's sister and her husband.  Also sucky because I feel like I was starting to get back to being better friends with her again, especially since she was away all of last year.  And her kids were awesome too. 

AND Nora's other boyfriend left this week too.  Again, another family that I so wish we had gotten closer to sooner.  They lived across the street from us and we always saw each other at Mom's groups.  And then we realized how much we had in common.  And it just sucks that it took us so long to realize it.

So that's my life at the moment.  Full of farewell's.  But as we know with Military life, it's never goodbye - it's always See You Later.

Love all of you and I'll miss you guys so much.

  1. Yes such a true statement. Not goodbye, just see you later.

  2. Probably the biggest reason that I don't like the military lifestyle... it's depressing making friends and watching them leave, or you leaving them. What's even worse, is watching your kids really click with other kids and have them loose their new friends within months because of postings. I thought Cold Lake was bad, Borden is horrible. it's a training base, so people are in and out before you get to know their last name. Luckily we have family close by, and the kids are starting school and we will start to meet other people through their activities.

  3. Have time,

    I will come to look at this issue and look forward to!
