A Good Day

It’s not often that extreme amounts of manual labor result in a good day, but today was it. My kids got to spend it with their entire family on my husband’s side as we did some remodeling at my in law’s house. It was great and one my oldest will...

On the Road Again

So my family and I are somewhere outside Knoxville, getting ready to cut across North Carolina on the way to MomMom and PopPop’s house up in Delaware on the first stop in the drop the kids and pets off for the year.  I have to say, this has been the most...

It’s That Time

So the second week in November is done and gone. Why is that anything to remark on? My family and I are down to our last two weeks together as a family for at least a year. It sucks but it’s the life we’ve chosen as part of the Army. So if anyone has any...

I’m a MAC

So, I’m working on finishing up my total migration over to MAC from windows. I have to say, I’m nervous, primarily because I know how to find data on my harddrive if my windows craps out. I’ve heard, though I have not verified, that if you lose your...

What I’m Reading Now

So I’m having an apocalyptic bent. I’m reading The Stand by Stephen King. The unabridged version on my new toy, my iPod touch. I’d started The Stand several years ago (it may even have been a decade ago) but for some reason I never finished it....

Food Battles

So I’m a few weeks out from deploying to Iraq. Guess how I choose to spend my last few weeks with my kids: fighting about food. We’re on day four of my oldest’s hunger strike. She has to eat at least one bite of the food we put in front of her or she...

Welcome!

There won’t be much traffic here until mid-late December, but I’ll post a little before I go. Once we get settled across the pond, check back daily! Of course, there will be NO OPSEC violations on this blog. I won’t share anything that will risk any...
