Aw, Sh%t

So… I got a call from TWP yesterday.  She’s the proud mama of two now: Meatball, my 2 1/2 year old goddaughter, and Squirts, my 2 week old godson.  Both are wonderful, amazing miracles… that are trying to kill their mother with bodily fluids. Squirts is a boy, and we (meaning, TWP, HistoryGirlie, and myself) […]

NavyGirl Talks Dog Park

Since Tally’s return from training, we’ve spent a considerable amount of time at the new Anacortes Dog Park.  Our yard is fairly small and along a busy road, plus Tally likes other doggies – so on paper – the dog park is a perfect solution.  However, I have a few issues that need to be […]

Saturday Stream of Consciousness

I’m going to start using my Saturday post to unload all the random thoughts I’ve had during the week, or any lingering updates that need spreading… the topics will jump around quickly, and things may not always make a whole lot of sense, but really, how is that any different than normal around here? – […]

Milspouse Friday Fill-in #10

1. What secret indulgence do you act on while your spouse is away? I turn his side of the bed into my ancillary nightstand/closet/bookshelf.  There are remotes.  Books.  Magazines.  Clothes.  One flip flop.  A sudoku book.  A Cheerios box.  Extra pillows.  If you searched hard enough, you could probably find Jimmy Hoffa’s body somewhere in […]

Dog Ickiness – Updates

Dog Ickiness

I’ll warn you now this is gross, so if you’re weak in the stomach, go read something else. Tally – completely out of the blue – yakked on the basement carpet this afternoon.  Two sizeable brown spots that smelled like death.  I shoved her outside and immediately ran for paper towels, but by the time […]

Halfway?

Yesterday was the theoretical halfway day of this deployment.  NavyGuy and I have been having an ongoing dispute about what day is actually halfway, but I’m declaring victory with my iron-clad argument that since we don’t know what date he’ll be coming home, it’s perfectly acceptable for me to simply declare a specific day “the […]

Returning TV Shows Guide

I’m ready for fall tv.  Yes, there have been some awesome shows this summer (see So You Think You Can Dance, Covert Affairs, Bethenny Getting Married, Top Chef).  But, it’s time for the second-stringers to return to the bench, and the starters to come back on the court.  Here’s an (admittedly incomplete, but still helpful) […]

Beloit College Mindset List

Every year, Beloit College in Wisconsin puts together a “mindset” list, highlighting the cultural milestones of the incoming freshmen class. I started reading this 10 years ago, the year I entered college (sweet lord, I’m old).  Anyway, here are a few of my favorite tidbits about the mindset of the Class of 2014… ~ “Caramel […]
