Ramblings

NavyGuy finally got off the ground and made it to Nevada.  Four days past the original leave date.  Whatevs.  It’s not like the Navy cares about promptness or efficient use of funds.  Ha. Once it was clear he was finally leaving, I made the pilgrimage to Safeway and stocked up on single girl food. I […]

The Boy Who Cried “I’m Leaving”

NavyGuy had all his gear packed up on Saturday night.  It was supposed to be his last day at home before a month long trip to Nevada.  We said our goodbyes on Sunday morning.  Tally and I settled in for a nice day of trashy tv (gotta catch up on what the Kardashian Klan has […]

A Week in a Post

NavyGuy has been home for a couple weeks now, and clearly he’s entirely to blame for my lack of blogging 😉  Nah, it’s just been busy round these here parts… Several babysitting jobs for me, and full days of work for NavyGuy.  He got two days off after he got home, but otherwise it’s been […]

Fly-In

NavyGuy made it back from the boat on Wednesday.  His jet was the one of the three returning that was delayed by a few hours, but the rest of the squadron was supportive and hung around the ready room with me and waited until they finally arrived. The group waiting outside of the hangar on […]

And then there were curtains…

So, did you know that curtains are quite expensive?  I did not.  It’s just fabric.  But apparently, when you’re trying to find long curtains (longer than 84 inches), in a pretty color, with lining, you should expect to have to cough up a couple hundred beans!  I think not.
