Where I am Today

So I have been thinking lately what exactly has gotten me to this point in my life to where I am completely happy with my life. The government is fighting and we might not get paid(hubby is Military for those of you that don't know) and I'm not OK with that. My husband has been gone 2 out of 4 years this go round and the government isn't gonna pay him for protecting them (for being idiots) or for standing on that wall so I can sleep at night? I never really thought about the military much until I married my soul mate and best friend. I support him 150% and I'm proud to be a Military wife. I'm proud of the job he has done for 21 years 17 years of those I've been proud to call him my Husband and Hero. We as adults can survive without a paycheck (I do work outside of the home) But I am concerned for the children. What about the PFC(Private First Class that don't know) who can't afford to feed their children? Is it the children's fault? No it is not! So are they forced to take out a loan that they can't afford to pay back? Really? This is how we repay our Military? The very people who elected some to office. Really makes no sense to me. To quote a song I have come to love because it has become one of my faves: now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel. One is the colors that fly high and proud the red the white the blue the other ones got a rattle snake with a simple statement made Don’t Tread on Me is what it says and I’ll take that to my grave because this is me I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again cause I've never needed Government to hold my hand And I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again cause my family’s always fought and died to save this land and a country boy is all I’ll ever be. I love my country, I love my guns, I love my family, I love the way it is now, and anybody that tries to change it has to come through me, that should be all of our attitudes, cause this is America, and a country boys good enough for me, son. I have seen my husband give up so much in 17 years....He has given up birthdays, Christmas's anniversary's and school graduations to protect this land and us so we have freedom. And in doing so he has given up his freedom. He cannot come and go as he choose's and you will never him him complain about it. He Volunteered to do this so many years ago to protect you and I. And our daughter never get's what she deserves. She has to go through the deployments harder than Lee and I ever thought. Yet you will NEVER hear her complain and she is so strong it's not even funny. So you ask who I am today: I am an Army wife I Am a Mother I never asked for this life....I CHOSE this life! And to my SOLDIER and my HERO.......We're here in the rear waiting for you! Keep your head down, be safe and come home in one piece! HOOAH

2011 Is Bringing Major Changes My Way

Well as 2011 is off and running and my life at the moment has seemed to come to a stand still. Lee is officially deployed. Not my first rodeo and it never get's any easier, but as he puts it I'm the Rear Det Commander! LOL There is nothing that I can't handle (as I insert my sarcasm here) Stress me out yes, but nothing that I won't be able to accomplish! I was hoping to be in a routine by now....but I'm not. We'll get there(the rabbit never won any races), but at times I hate being the turtle also.

I'm planning on quitting smoking also. Wrong time to do it I know.....but it's something that NEEDS to be done! Poor Miranda being left alone with me at this trying time...but I have a ton of support to do it! So why not?

I have also realised that I turn 40 this year! WHAT? Where has the time gone? I'm not ready for this! Maybe I'll plan a big party or something. After all 40 is the new 20 from what everyone in the media is saying! Maybe this really will be a turning point! Wouldn't that be fun! Maybe I won't be such a fuddy duddy! Poor Lee wouldn't know who he was coming home to!

Well as January is 1/2 way over I'm sure that ya'll will get many more post's in the upcoming year. Just please bear with me through all of my madness and ramblings!
