I'm a Hypocrite

That's right folks. I'm a great big hypocrite. I have been so absorbed in my life and my worries over the last few years that I have forgotten about others. One of my posts from earlier talked about a friend who wasn't there for me when she said she would be. It hurt me, but I realized today that I have not been an emotional support to others much either.



I had a friend in college, Amy. She was a beautiful girl, but struggled with her self esteem. It hurt me to watch her in her… Continue

Today

Today I am a freaking rock star! Today I am not only surviving my husband's deployment to Afghanistan, I am kicking some deployment a$$! Today I am mom to my 2 and 3-year-old kiddos, and I am Detective to nearly everyone else. I am also covered in buggers from a sick little one!



My husband, CJ, is a Black Hawk pilot in the National Guard, and he has just begun what will be around a 9 month deployment. That does not include all of the pre deployment crap he did before. Basically he… Continue

Blood is Thicker than Water

Yesterday I shared with you my Child Care Woes.  The day care we use will be closed until August 13th for a suspected mold they found in one of the rooms.  On one hand I am happy they take any concerns like this seriously and promptly.  On the other hand I have been worried that I wouldn't be able to find child care for the days I work.  Right now we do not live close to family or friends.  I…

NAVY Life - NAVY Wife...In That Order!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/navy-life-navy-wife.html

When I first met Chad, my handsome, American sailor, I had absolutely no concept of military life, other than hearing the ARMY wives bitch and moan about how Johnno and Stevo just wanted to drink all day, after returning from a week-long exercise!



In fact, even though I had watched countless US ships come and go, filled with…

Me and the Military

I often wonder if I should stay or if I should go. Today was one of those days that I just felt a little out of place. I don't believe in guns but I joined the military. My job doesn't require me to use one and so I sometimes forget that I am surrounded by people who believe that everyone should be toting a gun. I don't know if the military is where I belong or if I should be doing something else. The biggest threat that I have at work is a paper cut the pay and benefits are good… Continue

I'm Leading a Double Life

It never ceases to amaze me how little civilian people tend to relate to

my military experience as a spouse. I have witnessed the most

offhanded comments, which I now attribute to lack of knowledge or

someone just really not knowing what to say. I have been married to

the army
for seven years. Out of those seven years, that

little mistress has taken my husband ...Read more… Continue

Military Wives and Depression

I started thinking about this topic earlier this week after speaking with a few military wives. I have been a military spouse for over 7 years. I have seen tons of soldiers, mostly those that have been deployed to a war zone, be diagnosed with
sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, PTSD, read more here....

Living in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

My family and I were recently transferred to Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Yes, GiTMO!! No, not the prison camps, although they are here on the same side of the island, they are hardly within our view, we can't even see the darn fence line. Honestly, I often forget we share the same island.



So anyway, my husband, Mike, has been here since September of 2009, the kids and I arrived in December, just before Christmas. We have had a… Continue
