Take an extra minute to remember

To my readers I ask you a to take a moment to remember what it is your spouse/SO does in the military. I know not all of you are military affiliated, and if you are not, then take a minute to think what it would mean. I was at a marriage retreat this weekend with J's battalion, and some of the things I heard made me cringe, even from seasoned spouses. Then I got home and read this incredible blog from "To Love a Soldier". Please take a moment to hop on over there and read it. I know it's difficult to realize that as loved ones of military personnel we don't always come first, but they love us no less, remember that.

Quick Update

So things are going as well as possible here I guess. I am still going through an emotional roller coaster. I think it's mostly hormonal still, but I'm really tired of it. I have always struggled with my temper, but I can barely control it currently. I truly hate that, it's embarrassing. I am doing my best though and J is still fully supportive.

It is currently my turn to take care of him. He had his eye surgery done on Monday. I currently feel like I'm living with a vampire or a mole, I'm not sure which. I will be happy when we can have a light on or even the TV and it not hurt his eyes. It makes being productive at night difficult.

I am full swing into my new position as FRG Leader. We have a few big events coming up and I'm still trying to get organized. I have an amazing Co-Leader; I truly don't think I could do what I'm doing without her. Now if only we could get the rest of the team filled out we would be great! At least the commander is completely on board and behind us!

I'm still trying to figure out what direction I really want to take my blog. I know I'm still getting my feet wet with a lot of things, so it is taking me some time. Hopefully there will be some craft posts, DIY sections, food posts, and who knows what else. Any suggestions?? Once I start getting a little better following maybe I'll even be able to do a give away, who knows?
