More Holiday Wishes

Tally pup says Merry Christmas! Okay, maybe she says, “Help me, please”… but I love her version of the Grinch’s dog Max 🙂  Don’t feel too bad for her – she got about 17 treats during the four minutes we were trying to get this photo.

Belated Holiday Wishes

I’ve been reveling in holiday fun the past few days.  Lots of good food, family, friends, and frivolity.  It’s exhausting squeezing this much into a few short days, but living so far away from everyone means visits home are jam-packed. As such, it’s taken until now for me to post my Christmas card and send […]

Did you ever think you’d see the day?

NavyGuy and I offered to babysit for another couple in our squadron who had a baby recently.  They had wanted to get out of the house for a couple hours before they go home for the holidays and face the family/friends/craziness onslaught.  So, Miss Chloe came to play at our house for a few hours […]

Homecoming Recap: The Final Fly-In

So if you’re keeping count, we had the first two jets arrive at noon on Wednesday, the Chase plane touched down several hours later that same day, and now we’re finally up to the third and final fly-in.  NavyGuy and I rolled out of bed Thanksgiving morning, got NavyGuy his first Starbucks in entirely too […]

So my weekend stunk hard. Friday night I was feeling a little off, but our wives group was having a Christmas cookie exchange party, and I already had the cookies baked, the recipe cards made, a white elephant gift wrapped, and hello – it was a party all about cookies – so I sucked it […]

Homecoming Recap: Six Months to the Day

Six months from the day he left, NavyGuy came back.  I love the perfect symmetry in that. After the first fly-in, I had time to go home, let Tally out, change into my cute new sweater dress (I opted to wear the gray one, though I haven’t yet returned the oatmeal colored one, so I […]

Squadron Holiday Party

Say you want to celebrate being home from a deployment.  Say you want to commemorate another year.  Spend time with subordinates, colleagues, and your commanding officers.  Eat dry chicken and watch others get drunk.  What would you wear for such an event? You’d think something along these lines, right? Classy.  Mrs. Midget and I pulled […]

Homecoming Recap: We’re Almost Done…

Where we left off: NavyGuy had no clear return date. So, I went to bed Tuesday night in a burrito and ice cream haze, expecting to spend the following day in a similar state.  The first two jets were due in around noon, and I decided that depending on my mode, I’d perhaps be supportive […]

I don’t remember getting a basketball lodged in my throat…

… but that’s sort of what it feels like at the moment. Doctor said my throat definitely looked like strep, and hooked me up with large doses of penicillin and ibprofen (neither of which is actually making me feel any better so far, but alas).  I used to get strep almost every winter when I […]

Holiday Cheer

Here’s how I’m displaying all of my Christmas cards this year: I taped a strip of thick ribbon over the pantry door, and then used colored paper clips to attach the cards.  The original plan was to cover clothespins with pretty Christmas paper, but there just aren’t enough hours in the day 🙂 What do […]
