Just an FYI that the 2009 BAH rates are out. Take a look to see if yours went up or down. Remember if it goes down, your safe, you still maintain the rate you have. http://perdiem.hqda.pentagon.mil/perdiem/bah.html If it goes up then come January 1 enjoy! Of course that extra money will probably be spent on [...]

Perspective

It’s the time of year to look around and be thankful for all that we have.  And by that I don’t just mean the material stuff, in fact, I think this time of year the material stuff should matter less and the “other” stuff more.  A few days before Thanksgiving I had a miscarriage, one [...]

Veterans Day – A big thank you

I didn’t forget Veterans day yesterday. Hardly. I thought a lot about it I’m just always running a day or two behind lately. I thought a lot about the men and women, past and present who deserve a great deal of thanks. The veterans near and dear to me, my grandfathers, one here, one not [...]

From the mouth of babes

I am learning that almost everything that comes out of the mouth of Dash-1, my very extroverted 3 1/2 year old, requires explanation on my part.  And it often leaves me wishing that we lived in an area with a larger military presence with some of the stuff that comes out of his mouth then [...]

I’ve been thinking…

A daily read of mine, New Girl On Post had an interesting post up on whether or not you would want your son to join the military. I’ve thought about this a lot. I know my boys are young little ones and while it seems like the time for that decision is light years away [...]

Words from my mouth

Sometimes my life is a bit like an out of body experience. Not in a bad way, not at all, its just that sometimes I find myself saying things that ten years ago I couldn’t have imagined coming out of my mouth. Since becoming a wife and mother the following strange things have come out [...]

Got Mail?

I’ve been trying to come up with something to do for the boys. So often daddy is here when they go to bed and then when they wake up he’s gone, sometimes for a day or two, sometimes for weeks and weeks. It’s getting to the point that Dash-1 asks every night, usually several times [...]

A snazy star

I finally have a service star to put up in my house. Take a look folks and prepare to be jealous. Isn’t it fantastic?! It’s beautiful if I may say so. For those who aren’t familiar with the service star flag, it started during World War I and they were originally known as “Sons in [...]

Jumping thru flaming hoops for a new ID

All I want is to get my military ID renewed. I have the signed 1172 from the squadron, I have my old ID, my mother is even going to watch the kids so I don’t have to drag them with me. So I ask… WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT!?! Gone apparently are the days of [...]

The perfect gift

I wrote a post a month or so about a friend of mine moving back to the area and how the combat boots in her family are moving around a bit. Her husband is retiring from the Army and her son is heading off to the freshman class at West Point today. I wanted to [...]
