Brat Facts

I come from this close-knit family of Brats.
Military Brats, that is.

We go through all of the horrors a military family entails. We face the hardships of our parent being gone for many months at a time and having to learn how to be strong without them.
Sometimes. . . It's a nightmare.

But despite all of the troubled skies that we most often have to face, I know I wouldn't trade this life for anything.

27. Fact 22: Wall Colors.

This'll probably be a short fact, but nothing used to annoy me more than being told, "No, Kay, you can't paint your room because this house is only temporary. You'll have to paint it back to white before we move out."

Because it was base housing, all of the interiors of the houses had to be spic and span for the next families who would inevitably move into the house after my family had left.

Meaning no paint on the walls. 


Though I used to say, "Fine! I'll paint it back to white, just please, let me have purple walls," The answer was always no.


Even though I now live in a house my family owns the answer was still no.


I guess old habits and old restrictions really never do die out.
