I'm a mom, wife, friend, and a blogger.
I graduated with diplomas in Broadcast Journalism and Radio Announcing. But living in a place that looks like the town was built around the military base, there isn't many opportunities to find a great job in my field. So that's why I blog!
Well, that's not true.....
I blog because no one listens to me at home!
I also wanted to share my stories to the world.
I'm a military wife. My husband Cpl. Mayhem, will be deploying to Afghanistan in April 2010. I really wanted him to have a place where he can read what was going on at home without having me to recount what happens during a phone call, which most military wives know are not always long.
I met Cpl. Mayhem in college and we were inseparable ever since! Well.... that's partially true. After we got married he joined the Canadian Military. It was a long process for him to finally get accepted but he did!
A year after we got married and a had our first child, "Ducky". He got the nickname when a nurse gave him a duck hat that engulfed his small head!
Ducky and I lived alone for a year while on Cpl. Mayhem was gone for a whole year at basic.
Ducky is a bundle of joy but a challenge. Fun for everyone, including my blog! The stories are never ending with this little man!
And finally there is my daughter "Chicky". Nicknamed for the sound she made in the delivery room. Plus she was so small.
She's the light in everyone eyes, including Ducky's! He is the best big brother! She follows him around constantly and is learning tons from him. Which can be a good thing, but when the bad habits are being taught not so much!
We are all living through the live of being military. It's a hard life but a rewarding one!
We watch as my husband gets ready for his deployment and we all cope with the trials of dad going away for weeks on end.
When we moved to our first posting, for the longest time I felt like it was a prison sentence. I was alone in a new town, no job and no friends. For the first year I hated my husband for choosing a job that took me away from everyone that I loved. But now being here for almost 4 years there are the good times and the bad.
This is my journey through the process of my soldier getting ready for deployment and how I'm coping with the trials of being a military wife and a mom. Thank you for following me through this time.
