This evening we will leave this paradise of Hawaii to fly into Fargo, ND. Seriously? Who lives there? Oh, my sweet husband's ex-wife and kids. We will see the girl graduate high school (I'm still crossing fingers, I received an email this morning saying she didn't show up yesterday to pay her parking tickets...please, can you just hold it together for a couple of days??)
I must admit, I'm DREADING this weekend. Not because of graduation. Not because of the kids, I love them and can't wait to see them. Because of the ex. I'm not a fan, and that's putting it lightly. The kid is insisting we have dinner together on Saturday night. ALL of us. Her mother is pushing this and can be heard in the background of countless phone calls, when dad is trying to explain the awkwardness saying "We can all be adults for one night" Can we? Can you? You haven't proven that so far.
I will be a lady. I will be a classy lady. I will be fuming under the skin, but I'm from the south and dammit, we can charm you while we stick a knife in your back!
Bless her heart, she will NOT see me sweat!!!
Have a blessed Memorial Day weekend. Remember those who have made this holiday for you. Take a moment and pray for a member of the military and his/her family. Remember the ones who gave all.
I am an Army wife and mother of five. I have been married to my Soldier for over ten years and we are currently in our fifth duty station since getting married.
I started later in life with my duties as an Army wife but have tried to make up for it by soaking up as much information as I can. I had some wonderful mentors as I joined this journey and now I want to pay it forward and mentor others.
I started this blog to document my life as an Army wife, mother, volunteer, and one who is trying to make this blended family a great one.
I love to cook, bake, and be a complete internet geek. I'm learning as I go, but as I tell everyone, knowledge is power, so I keep digging for more information!
