Borrowing from JulieAnn who borrowed from Ellen in the spirit of Bloghop....

Military Spouse Bloghop
Riding the Roller Coaster is hosting a Military Spouse Bloghop. What a fun way to find other military spouse blogs!

I'm Mama because I have 3 kids. I'm a military veteran. I'm a military spouse. Yes, I obviously at one point wore combat boots. They were in my basement, but suddenly have disappeared. I think my husband tossed them. He likes to purge. I keep things. I actually just went through my seabag the other day longingly looking at my old uniforms. I wondered. I wondered if I could still squeeze into them. I did a few years back. Then I ate cookies again. I think I will have to stop eating cookies.
My husband is an active duty Coast Guardsman. We have a lot of service rivalry in this house. I wasn't in the Coast Guard as you may have surmised by now.

We've been married for awhile. During that time we had three little ones. They are cute. They talk back. I don't like that.

I run (when I can - i.e. not in pain or when I am in really good shape). I dance too. Again, when things are good. Age and injury have gotten the better of me over the years. I'm making it my goal for the summer of 2010 to run a 5k by September. Let's see if I stick to it. I'm horrible with goals. I set them and don't follow through. Don't tell my husband I admitted that. He says that's the truth and I argue with him that it's not. It's just what I do.

Favorite things like JulieAnn....hmmmmmmm

military history
spelling big words
writing horribly because I can
Irish drinking songs
French bread
dark chocolate covered raisins
back rubs
a fresh box of crayons

And....we're back.

With PCS upon us, and my job soon to be a thing of the past (for a bit anyways), I will have much more time to dedicate to blogging. I apologize to all my readers for being absent for all of these months. I've been posting over at Waiting for Ships, but haven't really made it back here. AND, I'll be back on My Crazy Military Life soon, thanks to Wendy. I just have to fix my log in over there. We had a glitch.

Nonetheless, I'm back!

We are doing a cross-country move this summer. I'm excited, but I've been having meltdowns. Yes, that's right. Me. I know, hard to believe for some of you. Usually, I am so semper gumby and all that, but not recently. I'm a hot mess.

I will try to write more tonight. I'm on a lunch break at the moment. LOL I should get back to the daily grind.

More later friends.
