He’s HOME!

So I had this post ready to post yesterday, but got busy and forgot to post it 🙂  You’ll understand why.


Aug. 31, 2010 – Rob was sworn into the Army (again), and left to begin his training as a “prior service” soldier first going to WTC (Warrior Transition Course), and then to AIT (Advanced Individual . . . → Read More: He’s HOME!

All I want for Christmas is my Hubby!

The U.S. troops have exited Iraq and crossed into Kuwait.  Watch the video if you haven’t seen it.  It’s awesome to see that gate close.  The next step is HOME!  I am so ready for my husband to be home again.  Today marks the 219th day since I have seen him, and the closer we get . . . → Read More: All I want for Christmas is my Hubby!

Troops in Iraq are coming home!

I am so excited!! This deployment that was supposed to last until May, will be over soon! According to the President, the troops that are in Iraq will be home by the end of the year.  Obama even said they “will definitely be home for the holidays”.  Of course, I don’t know if he means Christmas . . . → Read More: Troops in Iraq are coming home!

Strong Bonds Retreat at Great Wolf Lodge

This past weekend, Lovebug and I had the chance to attend a Strong Bonds retreat.  It was put on by the Army Chaplaincy and was specifically for spouses & children of deployed soldiers.  We were blessed with a free stay at the Great Wolf Lodge a couple hours away from Fort Bragg.  Our stay included dinner . . . → Read More: Strong Bonds Retreat at Great Wolf Lodge

Take THAT, Murphy!

When Hubby was in AIT one of our vehicles had a flat tire, and I tried to change it myself.  I failed miserably. 

When he was at JRTC, Murphy (of Murphy’s Law) tried messing with our truck, but HE failed.  I can only chalk that one up to a true miracle.

Now that Hubby is deployed, Murphy . . . → Read More: Take THAT, Murphy!

Just being real

I need to just be real today.  This past week has been hard for me.  Not hard in the grand scheme of life, but harder than before.  I miss my husband so much it hurts.  From the time we found out about the deployment up until several weeks after he left, I have been fine.  I . . . → Read More: Just being real

4th of July on Fort Bragg

Yesterday, Lovebug and I went to the 4th of July celebration on post.  It was one HOT, crazy day!  I was able to reserve a spot ahead of time by paying $25 for a 10×10 foot space with a canopy tent already set up for me. SO glad I did – totally worth it!  If Hubby . . . → Read More: 4th of July on Fort Bragg

Deployment: Week 3

It’s been just over 3 weeks now, so how are we doing?  I’ll tell you!

I hesitate to say it’s going well, because I don’t want anyone to think I don’t miss my hubby.  I do. A LOT.  At the same time, I’m getting to talk to him almost daily, and I just have to count . . . → Read More: Deployment: Week 3

Project Homefront Week 1

Lovebug and I are doing a project this year while Hubby is gone.  We are going to (attempt to) take a picture of each of us every day just living life so that we can share those with him and help him feel more involved.  I missed getting one of me on one day, so expect . . . → Read More: Project Homefront Week 1
