Proof Good Samaritans are the Stuff of Legends

While I’m recovering from my mystery illness, I have been fortunate to get a few guest posters to help me fill my calendar.  This gal here, from A God-Blessed Life is a favorite blogger of mine so I’m really excited she is being featured today! As we know, whatever can go wrong will go wrong during a deployment.  Here’s another tragically funny in retrospect tale from a deployment. DH deployed several years ago, his first deployment, but my second time playing role of Mom and Dad while also transitioning from Active Duty to my new role as a Reservist and Stay-at-Home Mom.  However, after hearing horror stories from so many other MilSpouses- all relating to how the crap hits the fan when hubbies deploy, I was still unprepared.

Greatest Hits: If My Life Were a Movie, I’d Want Tina Fey to Play Me

I originally wrote this post and submitted it as a guest post to my very good friend over at The Robertson Clan.  I then featured it on my own blog as part of my Funny Deployment Stories Series. If My Life Were a Movie, I’d Want Tina Fey to Play Me (as featured on The Roberston Clan) To view the Deployment Series post CLICK HERE *** I often feel like my life has been a comedy of errors, a cautionary tale if you will. Each step I take seems to be designed to teach me a life lesson that would have been easier to learn through a well thought out warning from someone else… But I guess there must always be the “someone” who learns the hard way so that others don’t have to.  I just wish that it wasn’t always me, or so it feels. I’ve decided, at this point so far Continue reading
