Operation: Explanation

Day 26: PARTICIPATE IN THE BLIZZARD BLOGHOP

SNOWED IN AT THE BLIZZARD BLOGHOP!!!!





After reading a few other mil spouse blogs, I discovered that there's a blog Meet n Greet going on.   Household 6 Diva started the Blizzard Bloghop for bloggers to introduce themselves and get to know each other a little better.  Not one to miss a good virtual party, here I am with bells and whistles to introduce myself.

I'm Wife on the Roller Coaster and I'm busy riding the roller coaster that is military life.  Welcome to my world!  I'm a full-time domestic engineer, mother to 2 awesome children (Big C is about to turn 6, Little C is in the throes of the Terrible Twos), and of course a military spouse.  I've been married to the military for almost 8 years now, and it has taken us all over the world.

My husband is here, there, and everywhere.  So part of my job is to maintain some semblance of normalcy in this abnormal life.  To keep myself grounded when everything else tends to be up in the air, I decided to challenge myself to do something new each day and write about those daily goals in a blog.  Today is Day 26.  So far so good!

My blog is still in its infancy, a mere month old.  But in that month, I've "met" such a wonderful community of fellow military spouse bloggers, and it's reassuring to read about other thoughts and experiences that so closely mirror my own.  This lifestyle ain't easy, but it sure makes it easier to know I'm not alone.

I love comments. I love new followers.  And I'm open to suggestions about new things I should try.  So join me as I continue to find out where this roller coaster will take me!!






On another note, I'd like to thank Amanda over at Trying My Best to Be a Proverbs 31 Woman for giving me my first blog award!


And thanks to Miss Jody at Miss Fancy Pants for my 2nd award!





The awards come with a few rules, which include passing them along to other bloggers.  However, there are too many great blogs out there that I've found, so I'm going to follow the other ladies' lead and invite all of my wonderful followers to grab an award.  You guys are great!

  1. The bloghop is super fun, isn't it? I found a couple new blogs that I'm going to check out. It's awesome.

    It's cool to hear about your finances. My husband is very resistant to going all cash... however he eats PB&J every day so I can't complain. I'm glad you didn't get may surpises. I *may* have exaggerated slightly how surpised I was about how much I spent on Subway. But I was a little surpised.

    Anyway, thank you for sharing what works for you!
