Marriage & Upcoming Posts

One of the topics I want to cover over the next short while is maintaining a marriage while your spouse is deployed.  Now let me be clear - I do not think, feel or believe that my marriage to Joel is perfect or that after 3 deployments and 7 years of marriage, that I have this complex-thing called marriage figured out!

We've had our mountain-highs and our desert-lows over the last 7 years - some of those highs and lows were brought on by the military life and some were just brought on my normal, crazy-busy, stressful life.  But I think that maintaining a marriage through a deployment brings about a whole set of challenges - some obvious and some not so much.

So, I've been thinking over this topic for some time now and trying, in my head, to organize my thoughts and figure out exactly what parts of our marriage I want to share.

Please post a comment and let me know if there's a particular topic you'd like discussed and I'll try to fit it in. Otherwise, you're simply stuck with whatever comes to mind.

I always like "whatever comes to mind." :) You have a great mind.

I'll be waiting to see what you come up with! I'm operating from a different perspective here - we've been married for almost 20 years. At year 7 I was probably still weepy when he went away for 2 weeks, I'm not sure I would have been strong enough to handle deployment back then - nor do I think our marriage was strong enough. I give you all credit.. lots of credit.

So looking at your Tag Map on the left hand side I see there aren't too many on these subjects:
-animals
-coupons
-dream
-vacation

Heres a question Jennifer and I talk about just to pass time or to go over "what ifs"... what do you think Joel and you would do if you won the lotter (or if like my mom says you have to play to win (they dont)), or if you come into a large amount of money?

This all said I still enjoy reading what comes off the top of your head... write on!

if I knew how to spell I would have said lottery instead of "lotter"
