A Giveaway and I’m Tired!

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?”

One of my bloggy buddies (Under the Sea) made me aware of a really cool giveaway for military spouses.  It’s a quilted Service Star.  For those who might not know about them, the Department of Defense allowed them to be displayed (back in the WWI era) in homes of people who had immediate family members who were serving in times of war.

Anyway, this giveaway is courtesy of a new blog I recently started following called Trying Our Best.  You can find out about the giveaway here.  Check it out. It’s for spouses and parents of active duty only.

In other news, I’m so freakin’ tired. I’m glad I’ve been working each weekend to make the extra money we need, but I’m on day number 16 right now of at least a 21 day stretch (the schedule isn’t out any farther so I don’t know when the stretch will end).  At least I know I get to see Huzzy in 17 days!  Woo!

So please forgive me if I don’t most much right now. I’m just tired.  I will soon be updating you on everything that’s happened including more sick dogs (though I think we might have found a cause), my commissioning ceremony photos and the $800 we have to part with to get the stupid floor done so we can get the house up for sale.  I still hope to be living with Huzzy before he deploys this fall.  All these updates and more coming soon!



One thought on “A Giveaway and I’m Tired!

  1. I feel ya on the floor thing. I think the real reason my husband and I plan to rent out our house when we inevitably move to a different duty station rather than sell it is because I cringe at the idea of spending money on a house that isn’t going to be mine anymore. I know you’ve got to spend money to make money, yadda yadda yadda, but it still tweaks my possessive little nerves. I’d better get over that or else we’re going to wind up collecting houses (and mortgages, yikes) all over the country.

    In any case, I’m sorry to hear about the canine illness, glad to hear that you’ve got a short countdown until you see your husband, and I look forward to seeing your commissioning photos if you choose to post ’em here.
