The Military and Me

This is the National Guard insignia. Out of all of the military symbols I have grown to respect, this one is my entire heart. This symbol is his life… At least until he gets out.

He being my Matthew. I’ve seen milspouses call their husbands G.I. Joe, “M”, the DH, and many other but theres something about that. He isn’t just a soldier. It took me a while to start realizing that online but… he isn’t his title. He is my Matthew.

We met through work… Me in my red crew shirt and him in a management gig. He has been there for 8 years now, and my measly “working on 2” pales in comparison. We would joke around on slow nights and I honestly thought he was a total fruitcake. Guess not right? We have bonded over ketchup, pokemon and George of the Jungle. Our first kiss was a total surprise and totally justified.

But I didn’t know about the military. Not until after we started dating.

If I had payed attention… I would’ve noticed.

But I sat down in that apartment and looked around when he wasn’t home. Boots by the door. ACUs on the floor. National Guard pack by the TV. I felt… Lost.

It was a whole new world I had no idea about.

And I was scared.

A world of questions and what if’s. Until he asked me one thing.

Could I deal with the knock on the door?

To be honest… I’m still not sure. But I am positive I will always be by this mans side. Until death do we part.

Stress. Stress. Stress.

Today is Brickyard meaning we are going to be off and on hit. All. Day. Ugh.
Today was supposed to be something but for the life of me I can’t remember what.
I’m at work, on my break, and watching a crew member give management a massage.
I miss my soldier every damn day. But hey, six days. And everyone is asking when he comes home. Truth is, I’m sick of answering that question. People should know about how much I love him.
In fact some guys have already started calling me Mrs. Scott.
And if I get into the program I want, I’ll be a telecommunications major. And if not, hey, early childhood education. 🙂

I just hope people don’t mind a kindergarten teacher having tons of earrings, a rocking body, and a Mohawk. Oh, and a nose ring.

Ok.

People might mind.

Maybe I’d be a better bartender.

I love my job.

And I’m hoping for a certain national guard tour bus to pull into our parking lot today, containing a certain ‘so tan he’s almost mexican’ skin color, transition glasses and a hyper attitude that puts little kids to shame.

I want my soldiers;
Arms
Kisses
Hugs
Reassurance
Love
Words
Smile
Laughter

Feelings

Arrived at work generally unscathed. Teeth hurt pretty bad but that’s just life for me. So I feel the air condition working which is awesome. We haven’t had air conditioning in weeks and it’s relieving to be able to breath. I already have seen Jess, Sharon, Jim, Robert, Steve and heard Frank. We just hired in 25 new people. Yikes! If I didn’t know better I’d be afraid for my job. Instead I know that I’m a good person and I know what I’m supposed to do. Still, it’s kinda scary.
I also realized I post a lot for a blogger and maybe that is because my soldier isn’t here. Ok and the fact I have a lot of stuff going on right now. I’m trying to figure out college and life. And I’m honestly scared.
People who know me, they think I’m so headstrong and everything is figured out. What if they knew I wasn’t so sure of myself.
Judy is walking around the store. She’s district management and could give a small suggestion to the owner and shut us down. Big power. She doesn’t understand how the store runs. She believes what she sees and doesn’t see our chemistry. The chemistry of the store is awesome. Minimal drama and great staff.

Ok. I saved that as a draft so it was written around 1448.

Work was great. Talked with friends. Going to sleep.
