Husband, Father, Marine, Veteran

Today, November 6 is my husbands birthday. He is not used to necessarily celebrating it because of the way they grew up they didn’t celebrate birthdays, Christmas, etc. He turns 33 years old. Yes, I guess that technically means I am a “cougar” since I have almost 9 years on him. But I am […]

This is nothing new but for some this could be the first they’ve seen or heard of it. Know someone who this applies? Feel free to share.
Wish we would have known this when we purchased our first SUV while my husband was still active duty.
We were paying around 12% on our vehicle loan and knew nothing of this. […]

NO, I REALLY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I WAS GETTING INTO – WORDS FROM A MILITARY SPOUSE
As my military husband and I visited home for the holidays, I remember being so happy about getting this break. However, we couldn’t help but get those same questions.

“When will you guys be done with the military?”

That was close

This morning my husband went to get his motorcycle riding gloves to prepare to leave for work. I hear him ask me to come here. I get up and see what he needs. He asks me, “Is that a black widow spider?” I state first off that I thought it was. Then I proceed […]

Seizures and what you did or did not know
