A bitter-sweet Sunday for a proud COW

It’s another lovely, southern California Sunday, at home with my Lovey. Our last, for a while. Mos refuses to acknowledge Father’s Day, and merely growls at The Commander when he attempts to snuggle him. He’s kind of  a shit like that. The Commander is a little behind schedule with breakfast; he’s always in charge of […]

O, The Places We’ll Go…

The Commander and I just came back from an epic, much-needed adventure in Utah. It was our first break together in nearly two years. We’ve had a few long weekends here and there, but not a proper getaway where “Vacation Commander” could come out. I’ve missed Vacation Commander. He’s a riot, and I haven’t seen […]

A Proud Quickie

You may have already heard, but The Commander was promoted last week.  No longer Lt. Commander, he is now Commander. It’s kind of a big deal. I remember the day he found out that he’d been selected for command, four years ago. We were newly dating and I didn’t understand anything about the military or the […]

Hey, it’s been a while. Let’s catch up.

I have seriously been neglecting this blog lately. I don’t know if it’s the Georginess of Summer, or that I’ve been traveling and have no lap-top with which to blog my thoughts while on the road, or… Squirrel! My cousin-friend used to write her brilliant-but-short-lived blog on her iPhone. I couldn’t do that. I go […]

A Ship, a Shark, and a Shitzu

After a lovely week together, The Commander has once again gone away. [insert sad-face here] We didn’t do a whole heck of a lot in Norfolk. When The Commander wasn’t in school we mostly just sat contentedly next to each other and talked, read, or watched the boob-tube. It was nice. We did have a […]

Getting Edumacated

The Commander has been in SWOS (Surface Warfare Officers School) since October. He’s mostly been in RI, but he’s also done stints in San Diego. This week, he’s in Norfolk. Instead of flying, he opted to drive down and pick me up along the way. HOORAY! The Commander and I have had our share of […]

What’s a party without an Oompa Loompa?

All right, one more post about the end of 2012, then I’m moving on. Unless I remember something else to share. November was crazy busy for The Commander and me. Even so, when he had some time off and was able to come home, he drove me up to Michigan for a few days (I […]
