8 days!

hey friends! Sorry i was a slacker and didn't post anything yesterday-  i had a freakin test and it didn't go nearly as good as I had hoped, but whatever, final coming up on Wednesday so just gonna concentrate on that. LOVED the marital advice and well-wishes =) so, i have another relationship targeted question- what is the thing that first attracted you to your significant other and is it still what gives you butterflies now? or has it evolved into something new?

for me what very 1st attracted me to J. (besides the way someone looks bc clearly you have to @ least think they are good looking) was his witty personality, he was and still is very funny, kinda sarcastic, flirty- and I still LOVE that about him and still find it very attractive!

still learning!

sorry i cut off so many of those lines! i' m still so new to all this!

Military Wives

a fellow Marine wife shared this with me, its so cute!

You might be a military wife if.... can unpack a house and have everything in place in 48 hours. string concertina wire to keep the neighbor's kids out of your flower beds.
...your husband's work and dress clothes cost more than yours do.'ve changed more oil and mowed more lawns than your husband because he's never there to do it himself. use a crook-neck flashlight with a red lens during power outages because it's the only one you can ever find in the house.
...your children say "hooah" or "roger that" instead of "ok". know that it's normal to light shoe polish on fire and that the best way to spit-shine boots is with cotton balls.
...your husband does a route recon and takes a GPS for a trip to the mall. only write in pencil because EVERYTHING is subject to change. need a translator to talk to your civilian friends, because they have no idea what DFAS, AER, TDY, ACS, NPD, PCS, and ETS mean. have a larger selection of curtains than Wal-Mart does. can remember where you kept the Scotch tape in your last house, but unfortunately, not in this one. mark time in duty stations, not years. refer to friends not only by name but by the state that they live in. know that "back home" doesn't mean at the house you live in now. tear up when you hear "Proud to Be An American," even though you've heard it 50 times by now. know that a 2 month separation IS short, no matter what your civilian friends say. ALWAYS know when payday is and get ticked off if there are more than 2 weekends during that pay period. know better than to go to the PX or commissary between 11:30 and 1:30 unless it's a life or death emergency. show your military ID to the greeter at Wal-Mart. know that any reference to "sand" or a "box" has nothing to do with your kid's backyard toys. know that "Ft. Puke" is a completely accurate description of Ft. Polk. find yourself explaining your husband's LES to him. have enough camouflage in your house to wallpaper the White House. don't have to think about what time 21:30 is.'ve ever been referred to as "Household 6".'re the TC, not a backseat driver. start ripping open MREs and looking for the M&Ms when you run out of Halloween candy. can't remember the last time you saw a doctor who wasn't wearing BDUs.'ve ever had a pet named Scout, Ranger or Sergeant.
...the local dry cleaner knows you by your first name. only cost you $25 to have a child. find that a large number of your clothes and household items are olive drab or loam, even though you never planned it that way. pick apart uniforms on TV and in the movies, even though you used to yell at your husband for doing the same thing. know what "pogey bait" is and which kinds everyone in your husband's platoon prefers. wish you could go to CIF to DX your old stuff like your husband can.'ve learned to sleep through the sounds of tanks, planes, helicopters and artillery simulators. give your kids a hand receipt when they take your Tupperware to school. can hate military life but be terrified to leave it all in the same breath. defend your lifestyle no matter how bad things get because you know there's no other life for you!

Mixed Bag

Well today and yesterday, and the day before J. has been distant, he just does this sometimes, and though i try to not take it personally it never works! i dunno what makes him do it but some days he texts like a TON and others not so often. Well on an up note I got my JOP wedding dress today =) its perfect! i love it! -K.

Saturday, April 10, 2010


well readers, not much to say today! going to eat Mexican with the parents tonight! J. has been SUPER tired lately (kinda worried about him) like he slept around 14 hrs today!!!!! if anyone has any suggestions let me know, he says he doesn't feel down or depressed, and he has been excited about PT and rehabing his ankle. He has made alot of progress, can walk for a little bit with no crutches! (for ppl not familiar with the situation J. shattered his right ankle in training and the brilliant corpsman told him it was just a sprain and to walk it off until J. threw up 5 times and passed out, he WALKED himself to the ER the next morning where the Dr. told him its the worst ankle break he had ever seen, thanx USMC infantry) -K.

relaxing but sweltering day

well i dont know if i am just being lazy or what, but for whatever reason i have done nothing since getting home from the hospital @ 1. I know I should be doing myself the favor of studying alas i can't find the motivation. MAYBE it's due to the inside temp of our condo, 3 weeks with no AC. just found out yesterday that we need a totally new AC unit. barf... but the sooner they can put it in the better! it was a humid 85 degrees today! ugh -K.

Another World

Well, to avoid getting depressed I have thrown myself in TV today and probably for the following days. Today I was lucky enough to get sucked into a Titanic special on the histry channel, good stuff! I think i may have dinner with my dad, i get the feeling he wants to talk about me getting married, and i am hoping he hasn't lost any enthusiasim (sp) not that it will change the fact that I'm getting married in 4 weeks and 2 days! But its nice to have your parents well wishes, and i know his approval means alot to J. S0o0o0o0o0o0o hopefully he has nothing but well wishes and support! (nerves) anywho, got a little homework to do tonight also so at least i can be busy! -K.

one word

only one word describes my weekend- amazing. though it FLEW my with a blink, the small amount of time with the love of my entire life was enough to remind me that all my stresses and emotional spazzes over distance are worth it. our first night was spent drinking dos XX,listening to music on our patio in rocking chairs, day 2 we spent eating BBQ & playing video games together, Night 2 we ate at a GREAT italian restaurant with my dad and step mom (always great company) Easter Sunday (hectic)- went to my moms (huge family gathering) then went to my dads (far more relaxing) then came home and packed, oh, and cried and cried. I fully expect myself to cry but everytime i see J. cry it literally breaks my heart into 1000 pieces! anywho I dropped him off at the airport at 5 this morning, due to the flock of people staring at us I didn't get hysterical as I usually do, thought i would refrain from humiliating J. haha. status now?- feeling a little empty, BUT hanging on to my upcoming martial bliss (just 4 weeks and 3 days) -K.
