A Better Marriage – Dealing with Differences for “Discussion” Success

A couple of weeks ago my bride and I had a “discussion.” The project I had been planning was due and I was running around at the last minute trying to gather all the things I needed. It went something like this: Me: I’m trying to find X, have you seen it? Her: No, haven’t […]

Biting and Hitting the Hand that Feeds

Dear Mr. Dad: Our son just turned one and, almost like flipping a switch, he went from the sweetest, happiest little guy to smacking and biting. It’s bad enough when it happens at home, but my husband and I are beyond embarrassed when he attacks friends or strangers. Is it normal for babies to turn […]

Prepping for an Overseas PCS

In the spring of 2009, my husband called me from Iraq and asked what I thought about putting in a request to PCS to Korea.  He explained that they had just opened command sponsorship to families so our family would be able to go for two years, maybe longer.  He had already served two tours […]

On PCSing, Relentless Bureaucracy, and Useless Anger

We just PCS’d this month, as I’m sure many of you out there either already have or plan to do soon. It was a short, one-state move, we were able to do a door-to-door pickup and delivery, and everything on that end went smoothly (yay!). However, we started renting our new house in May due […]
