1. My plans for this weekend include laundry, but what I’d really like to do is throw out all of my dirty clothes and go shopping for new clothes.

2. I consider the Labor Day holiday a really nice break from work, but not labor (see above).

3. My favorite meal for cookouts is a brat on a bun with spicy brown mustard, a baked potato with sour cream, butter and cheese and a beer, but my scale wouldn’t agree with that choice. 

4. So far, my favorite part of summer has been our new patio set that we got so we can sit and have dinner outside (even though we’ve only done it a handful of times due to mosquitos). 

5. When it comes to deployments, my philosophy is (isn’t it obvious)- keep calm and soldier on.


  1. I love the picture on the top of your blog!

  2. Thank you! I took it myself, last year in one of the motor pools.
