That could be the title to my book, or maybe, "Cloudy, with a Chance of Wine." I remember thinking the gift of time would give me comfort or maybe just tedious familiarity in this life, but time is a fickle, fickle friend. Time has given me over 17 years with my husband, two incredible … Continue reading Where do we go from here?
Dear Marie, I am a young 20-year-old Navy wife and my husband just left on his second deployment. I read your column about wives and you mentioned the young wife and that she thinks she loves her husband more than everyone else. Well, after being part of the command, I find that a lot of … Continue reading I love my husband more than you love yours…
To say I'm learning a lot is an understatement. I felt that since I have been through so many deployments and underways, returning to sea duty with older kids wouldn't be hard (er). I expected things to be different, but not any more difficult than before. That was until we transitioned and I realized how … Continue reading Down a Parent
Every time the red phone (aka the husbands work phone) rings at O'Dark thirty or my favorite time right after dinner, I think of the movie "The Incredibles" and this exchange of words between husband and wife.

Normally I wouldn't write about this, but spouses and service members are concerned (rightfully so) once again. I was going to answer the most popular questions, but Military Spouse Magazine beat me to it and did a nice job. Click here for the full article from MSM.
For those of you that have been there, done that, you get that sea duty is full of "the unexpected." I apparently forgot this over my two years of shore duty (or what I lovingly refer to as that time I put myself in a grown-up time out). Back to back sea tours and a … Continue reading It’s like getting back on a bike, right?
Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
So, there are bad people in the world that have nothing better to do than to mess with a small fan page. I've had to create a new one and start over. If you are interested, please go to the link below or follow the link to the right on the side bar of this … Continue reading *NEW* Facebook Page!
No matter what the headlines read, there is still so much good in this world and it outweighs the bad. I've raised my children to look at the reaction, not just the action. Sadly, there will always be evil, but the good of humanity shined today when people ran towards the explosion instead of … Continue reading Boston
