I haven't written a post since October, but my last real post was in July of 2011 - a year ago. I am a blog slacker. The problem is, when you get paid to write for other people it can... Continue reading

I don't know that I necessarily agree with that. They also learn leadership and responsibility. And I know plenty of veterans who learned a marketable skill in the military - my husband and brother both come to mind. Not everyone is just a grunt with a gun.

Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend President Obama's first Twitter Town Hall at the White House. And yes, I got to shake the President's hand. More on that later.... Because I was there representing Blue Star Families,... Continue reading

I travel a lot. It seems to be happening more and more frequently and the boys don't like it. But they do get excited when I send them photos of what I'm doing on my trusty iPhone. In return, they... Continue reading

When I first started blogging, I was incredibly lucky. One of the first commenters I had (that wasn't related to me) was Joanne Bamberger. I had been stalking her blog for awhile because I so admired her mix of smarts,... Continue reading

I've been such a horrible blogger lately. It's not that I haven't been writing, it's that I haven't been writing here. Hopefully I can take some time over the next few weeks to catch up on everything happening in our... Continue reading

I thought we had longer. This evening Hollis, my six year old, asked me "How do I know that Santa's real? Because I think it might just be you and Daddy giving us stuff." He asked this in front of... Continue reading

Actually, I've had a very good friend (who is a military spouse & social worker in the schools) tell me that sometimes stuff like this can have lasting repercussions. Every child is different. I'm just hoping that the families involved know their children well enough to know if having that moment (and their reaction) recorded for all to see will be a good idea. But what do I know, I'm just a "liberal douche" who has two small children and has been through a few homecomings of her own.
