MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #60

1. I always feel like I’m __________ years old, but in reality, I’m ______. Well, in reality I’m 29.  However, I feel both younger and older than my actual age.  I feel younger when I compare myself to people who are older than me.  For instance, I think of people that I know now, who […]

Overnight Babysitting

I’ve been offered a couple different overnight babysitting jobs in the coming weeks.  I’m kind of excited to “play” parent, but I need some input… what’s a reasonable amount to charge?  I haven’t discussed payment with either of the families yet.  The fairly standard hourly rate for babysitters out here is $10 an hour.  I […]

Windy

Fall has hit Anacortes hard.  We’ve had several brutally windy days in a row, and I’m starting to lose my patience.  These pics are helping me “reframe”… Source: etsy.com via Beth on Pinterest Source: etsy.com via Devon on Pinterest

Weekend Update (by Tally Pup)

Hi friends!  Hi!  I’m Tally!  Hi!  Wanna play?!?!? Okay, here was my weekend: I got my ears cleaned (even though I tried to avoid it). I helped Mumma write a grad school essay.  She didn’t use very many of my ideas. I tried to stop Papa from leaving on another trip, but he said I […]

And this is why the Navy makes me crazy…

So, this past Friday, NavyGuy was supposed to fly a cross-country flight to Tennessee.  Then the jet broke.  (The jet is over 50 years old and breaks pretty much at least once before or after each flight.  The Navy is phasing out this airplane, but NavyGuy’s squadron still flies it for another year-ish) The maintainers […]

Cheers and Jeers

Cheers… to my first day of bowling for the new season!  It was great to see Team Spare Me again, and I had a few good games (which probably ruined my handicap for the season). Jeers… to the baked ziti of Sunday night not reheating well.  Looks like it will only be a good meal […]

Recipe: Baked Ziti

It seems like everyone has a recipe for baked ziti, and there’s 75 million varieties.  Somehow before today, I had never made it myself.  Overall, it turned out quite tasty.  Very much like most other Italian pasta dishes (lasagna, etc.), but the rosemary made all the difference in my opinion.  The meal is not the […]

Go Pack Go

I’m from Wisconsin.  And the longer I live away from home, the more rabid I become about defending my homeland. It reached a new level last night, as I watched the Green Bay Packers stomp on the Saints.  I love NavyGuy, but Aaron Rodgers is probably going to be husband #2.  It only took one […]
