A Lot of Things

11th November 2012 | Closed

I always think of things to blog about during the day.  Specifically lately it’s been the election and Joshua’s birthday.  But once I sit down on the computer in the evening, I just can’t find the words or the energy.    And now the election has come and gone, tempers seem to be calming down [...]

More Ridiculous Holidays

11th May 2012 | Closed

There are some holidays that I consider Hallmark Holidays; mostly made up by commercialism to get people to buy shit.  These Hallmark Holidays include, but are not limited to: Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Day, Secretaries Day (think they changed the name of that one, though), etc.  Today is one of them, [...]

I Have A Blog?

5th April 2012 | Closed

Holy crap, this is still here? One might say I’ve “forgotten” to blog.  One might also say I’ve been busy.  I’ll go with option two. Let’s see, since my last entry in November of 2010 I turned 30.  And by 30 I mean 22 again of course.  Then 2011 was busy; we got busy and [...]

Homecoming, Picture Post Style

20th September 2008 | Closed

Me and a palm tree of some sort. You know you’re in the south when there are bug zappers INSIDE. Joe’s unit finally stepping off the plane they spent 20+ hours on. First hug in 254 days. Can’t you just see the little hearts floating over our heads? This was shortly after the plane landed. [...]

I’m leaving today on a long ass drive across 5 states to see my husband come home from Iraq. My vow of celibacy is finally, finally almost over. But first, there’s always thank you’s. Thank you to all my friends and family, and friends that are so close they are family (Maz, Ferretman, Ferretman’s parents), [...]

8 Months

6th September 2008 | 1 Comment

Today marks the 8 month anniversary (of sorts) of the last time I saw my husband. Eight stinking months. I never knew how long and short a period of time could feel. I don’t know if I can categorize the last eight months as hard or easy. At times it was seemingly unbearable, other times [...]

A Look Back

26th August 2008 | 1 Comment

I still remember watching my husband drive away 233 days ago.  I knew I wouldn’t see him again until September or October.  I knew there was a chance I might never see him again.  I also knew that when September or October finally rolled around, I would look back and think “that wasn’t so bad” [...]

When you think of the number 200, what do you think of? The movie 300 but with 100 less half naked Greeks? (Boooooring!) Perhaps 200 movies that you own on DVD, or miles you’ve put on your car in the past week or two, 200 bucks you spent at the grocery store last week (that [...]
