What the hell was he THINKING? This is what I was asking myself yesterday morning when Scott’s principal called.  Apparently my usually well-behaved son has been a minion of Satan on the bus.  Donovan rides the bus in the mornings, except for Wednesdays, and he hasn’t seen a thing, so I am guessing he usually […]

Exploring the Multifaceted Mama

Exploring the Multifaceted Mama

I just want to thank Flutter, Renee and Becky for their advice on yesterday’s post.  You guys really gave me the support and advice I needed and I appreciate it.  It is amazing what you can take from the points of view of three different people!   My “what ifs” have more to do with […]

Too much thinking,…

Too much thinking,…

I have spent the last few days lost in thought, I guess.  I suppose coming to startling realizations about your past will do that to you!  It has definately made me think about some of the choices I have made in my life.  It made me wonder where and who I would be had I […]

Reevaluating life,…

Most of the time, I question the value of closure.  Sometimes, bringing up the past only rehashes the hurt for the one wronged, almost making them twice victimized.  But sometimes, closure can really be a great thing.    I wrote about this a few days ago, but over the past 6 months, I have met […]

The first day,…

The first day,…

Well, what is there to say about yesterday that hasn’t been said by a thousand bloggers today?  I spent most of my day glued to the TV, watching it all unfold.  Before this election, I really could have taken or left it all.  But I got pretty wrapped up in this one, and all the […]

A day in history,…

Regardless of your political views, today is a one of those days that will always be remembered.  It will be one of those days that, years in the future, you will look back and know exactly where you were that day.  The day our 44th president was inaugurated.  He certainly has his work cut out […]

WTF?

WTF?

Sometimes, being the understanding Army wife/vet really bites.  I have barely heard from Corey since he left.  I got a couple of quick phone calls when he was in Germany in transit, another quick one when he first got to Bagram, and a REALLY quick one last week.  That’s it.  And most of the time, […]

Poor hubby! Having only a few minutes, Corey called me this morning, still waiting to make his final move to the FOB he is going to.  After the events of the last few days, it was beyond good for me to hear his voice.  He asked me how I was and, of course, I lost […]

Feeling blue,…

Feeling blue,…

I usually blog first thing in the morning, but I have opened up a new post about a billion times today and haven’t been able to come up with a thing. In the face of sorrow, nothing really seems all that important, interesting or funny. All I can think of is a life wasted, a […]
