Military Life

When people say it is the life we chose so deal it hurts. You chose to have children or get into your cruddy job jet you complain to us nonstop. Your boyfriend chose to leave for a weekend and you can complain to me yet i can be sad my husband leaves for months with hardly any communication. Yes we chose this but it does not make it easy! we need friends around that are OK with that, friends that support us. i love the military life i have little to complain about but between my husbands 16 hour work days and the things he has to get done on his "days off" i feel like a single mom. i say days off loosely because lately he has been going in on those days as well. i feel sorry for him i really do and out marriage needs some days as well. he is exhausted when he gets home and i am proud of him for how much he is working and look up to him for his sacrifices for our family. it is just hard being the single parent without a car. we are trying to save up for second car right now but it is hard. i want to be able to go to work to help but with his schedule and the lack of a car or funds for childcare it is next to impossible. i am really hoping my pole dancing lessons and sales from my custom clothing and my new chair (that will launch in a couple of weeks) will help out our family!
sorry for the long rant lol i truly am a happy person!

I have joined a forum it is a navy wives forum to meet women in your area or just discuss any topic you so well choose with women who GET IT! it can be so difficult to talk with civilians wives because there are so many things that they can not understand if not in our position. we need the support in knowing that those feelings are normal that you are feeling. They do not give you the answer we hear so many time.... "you chose that life" That does not make it and easier to be away from your spouse and basically be a single mom. It is not a place of complaining but of understanding. It has helped a lot for me and i hope it will help you.

i am so excited

i just finished the designs for my new chair! not the company i am working with is making a mock up and as soon as i approve it they will get to work on the real thing!!!! I am sooo excited you have no clue! They are called peek-a-boo pumps and they are going to be a big hit i can already tell. I have a store that already wants to sell them and i am sure i can get more when i start putting the word out there. The girl i am working with is the original one who sold the high heel chairs to Charolette Rouge and these are way better. I found a way to make them more sturdy and have 3 HIDDEN shelves in them for all your goodies you don't want people to see! Mine is going to be burgundy and tan to match my room and we are making them out of velvet and you can choose your color (some cost more than others especially if you want it to be a pattern) if you are a follower on my blog you will receive a special discount! I am still trying to figure out the cost, i am so bad with that. I am too easy going but my husband will help balance me out :)
Thank you so much

Thomas and Friends

my son Logan (2 and a half) loves Thomas and i don't mind playing with the toys or reading the books but the cartoon is just so darn boring! they just started making the faces move and are now more animated but the one voice thing really bothers me and i just don't understand how he likes it so darn much. he watched them ALL day long.
Not only is it boring but all of the engines are so mean and lazy and they never learn lol. I also someone is always "cross" because someone causes "confusion and delay," as well and being sad because they are not "useful engines" every episode is about the same darn thing. sorry i am just suffering from Thomas overload!

teen pregnancy #2

This is CRAZY but completely believable! The pressure to have sex as a teenager is unbelievable!

More than 10,000 teenage girls and young women took part in an anonymous survey over the summer on, the Web site of “The Tyra Banks Show.” Survey questions focused on sexuality, sexually transmitted diseases and teen pregnancy, as well as drinking, drugs and violence among females. Here are some findings from the survey:

* On average, girls are losing their virginity at 15 years of age.
* 14 percent of teens who are having sex say they’re doing it at school.
* 52 percent of survey respondents say they do not use protection when having sex.
* One in three says she fears having a sexually transmitted disease.
* 24 percent of teens with STDs say they still have unprotected sex.
* One in five girls says she wants to be a teen mom.
* About 50 percent acknowledge that they’ve hit someone.
* One out of three teens has tried drugs.


I lost my virginity when i was 14 almost 15 and most of my friends did as well. IT IS THE AVERAGE AGE!!!! that means they are averaging girls who lost it at 18 and 19 in there so there are some in JR HIGH! there were a few PREGNANT 7th graders in my jr high and i don't believe everyone in that school who was having sex was pregnant! I was a teen mom and it is NOT EASY!
I luckily have never had an STD but i did not have many partners either, the guys i slept with were steady boyfriends i had for about a year before we started "sleeping" together. I am not saying it is right but i KNEW them and used protection. If you do decide to have sex BE SMART, PROTECT YOURSELF, and do not purposefully get pregnant when you are not ready. If you do not have a job that can support you both WITH benefits and you emotionally can not handle another human to take care of do not even chance it.
GUYS do you want to be connected to this girl for the rest of your life? Do you want to risk her missing a pill, or heaven forbid LYING to you about taking it!? Protect yourself as well. ALWAYS use a condom until you want a child. I know it isnt as fun but it is way sexier for a guy to care then to RISK it! if the girl complains then there is a reason and you should not be doing it with her anyways!
Thank you!
