the time I found an illegal apothecary

the time I found an illegal apothecary

A couple weeks ago, I told the story of the soldier and the… personal item. I mentioned the amnesty room in that post, telling you it was a story for another day. I lied. It’s actually a collection of stories for several days. Today is one of those days. So the amnesty room… there were […]

that time I thought a tampon was a pen

If there is one thing I’m good at, it’s putting myself in embarrassing situations. It’s a gift. Or a curse. This particular event took place in 1989, when I was a young girl of not quite 19. In the present time, I am just two months shy of 51. What you should take from this […]

Anniversaries  and Army life

Anniversaries and Army life

I think that Army marriages should have some kind alternative numbering system.  I wrote a status about our anniversary on Sunday, joking about how rarely we are together for it.  Counting this year, we have been together for exactly one half of our anniversaries.  The balance is starting to tip in our favor! I mapped […]

The Stress Spiral

The Stress Spiral

 &  The past few days have thoroughly tested me, over and over again.  Not falling into old ways of thinking and old patterns has been, at times, a hell of a struggle. I had a moment the other night when it felt like everything I was trying to do for myself lately was for nothing. […]

Wednesday Wishes!

Wednesday Wishes!

Craziness.  That is the word of the times.  Moving across the country with three kids, two cats, one dog, and two cars.  Leaving one college-age kid behind.  Leaving family and friends behind.  All of this leads to crazy emotional roller coasters.   NOTE:  All pics are clickable into a new window for easier viewing! My […]

Changes are afoot!

Changes are afoot!

We are finally moving, something I was beginning to think would never happen.  We have a pack out date with transportation on August 23rd and pick up on the 24th.  We are rolling out for our cross-country road trip on the 29th.  We have been stationed here for 7+ years, since May of 2005.  But […]

I was so ready to move…

I was so ready to move…

I was so ready to move to Arizona this summer, so ready.  After the last several years, most particularly this last one, starting over in a new place sounded wonderful.  We are still going to move, but nearly as soon as we initially thought, which was within the net few weeks.   Corey has sleep […]

Balancing deployment vs. the rest of life,…

Balancing deployment vs. the rest of life,…

One of the things the sucks the most about deployments, besides the obvious distance, is the lack of balance.  Hell, that imbalance exists even when the soldiers are BTG in garrison.  There isn’t a wife that could be more understanding of the obligations and responsibilities of the Army.  I spent more than my share of […]
