A Pox on Your Arm

Thursday night, our conversation before bed… NavyGuy: I got my smallpox vaccine today. NavyWife: Oh yeah, in which arm? NG: My left – see right here (pointing). NW: (Reaching to touch it) Does it hurt? NG: No! Don’t touch it. NW: Jeez big baby, I wasn’t going to jab my fingernail into it. NG: No, […]

Well that was a lot of thinking…

I spent this morning in Bellingham, taking Washington state content tests in order to get a teaching license. And in other news, I’ll probably be working at Starbucks for a good long while… No, well, maybe, but those tests were tough. I took the history test and the general social studies test, so that I […]

Photos from Wisconsin – Part 3

Heavens to betsy! I’m beat from my late night skating excursion. (But how good did they all skate?!?!? Personally, I think Rachael Flatt got screwed somehow – 7th place? – but I love that the Canadian skater got the bronze, and Kim Yu Na was awesome… and actually showed emotion after she finished! Unlike that […]

A Glimpse Into My Friendship with HistoryGirlie

I found photos of HistoryGirlie and I! Here were are doing the commentary on a History Channel documentary. We feel our insights are best shared when wearing authentic clothing from the time period. For our first special on the anniversary of women getting the right to vote, we opted for patriotic regalia from 1920. She […]

Best Part of the Games

It’s finally here!!! The women’s figure skating is on tonight, which is awesome. The ladies did their short programs on Tuesday night, and tonight’s free skate is going to be even better. I’ve watched the recaps, slow-mo replays, analysis, Kristi Yamaguchi’s predictions, and pretty much everything NBC has shoved down my throat since Tuesday. My […]

Photos from Wisconsin – Part 2

For 27 years I have tried to get my mother to take photographs. Aside from a 24 hour window surrounding my wedding in which she agreed to leave her camera-phobia at home, she has always refused all paparazzi attempts, using physical means if necessary. However, all NavyGuy has to do is hold a camera and […]

Photos from Wisconsin – Part 1

MOH’s baby, Lily, at a family dinner our first night home. She’s 8 months now, and still a little peanut size-wise (excluding her 90th percentile noggin’). Lily’s obsessed with pulling herself up on things, a skill she mastered since I’d last seen her two weeks prior. Her older “cousin,” Shea-Lynn, checks up on her at […]

Technology Coup

Guest Post from NavyGuy… Well, folks, seeing as our dear NavyGirl is taken with a deathly illness, I’m writing one of my sporadic guest posts. When NavyGirl gets sick, her resolve weakens, and this is when I spring my “New Technology” traps on her. This time, there were two! First off, I got her using […]

God I hate being sick!

Seriously, that’s all I have to say. I can’t even form other coherent thoughts to share with you. NavyGuy had a cold for two days while we were traveling, and I thought I was in the clear. But then on Thursday I woke up with a sore throat, by Friday it had traveled to my […]

Home Again Home Again, Jiggity Jig

Is there anything more comfortable than your own bed after an extended vacation? (Typing from said location, I’ll simply say, ahhhhhhhh) NavyGuy and I arrived back in Washington Monday night, many pounds heavier from all the wonderful eating, revived by all our family and friends, and one of us nursing a vicious cold (apparently my […]
