Dear Facebook: We're through. It's not me, it's you.

I am done.  Just absolutely done.  I can't believe it's finally come to this point.  I can't believe that after all of these years, that it would end like this.

I just can't do this whole "Facebook" thing anymore.  When I first got a Facebook account, it was the…

My First Entry

My name is Mary but everyone has called me Katie since birth. I was once a wild party girl and I am now a military/ law enforcement wife and a stay at home mother to a beautiful daughter. 

I grew up in a tiny town in southern Arizona. Moved from West Virginia at a young age and noone agreed with my country thinking.. (although now its cool to be country!)  I moved to Flagstaff after graduation and did not succeed in school. I was that small town upbeat girl in a whole new world and it…

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 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!

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

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
