Just a few thoughts....

Yesterday morning as I was driving my husband to work, we got stuck momentarily because of a fender bender and while we were sitting there stopped I noticed a truck in the other lane that had a decal on the back that was a hand with the middle finger up. Now maybe it was the time of day (I am not a person who is very friendly before 8am), but that struck me as being so disrespectful. Disrespectful to the people who have to see it and I think a self-disrespect for the person driving the vehicle. It seems a shame to me that our culture/society seems to think vulgar symbols are cool or fun.
Last evening I was re-elected secretary of our FRG (Family Readiness Group), which means I have signed myself up for yet another year of service to my husband's command and our boat family. Fast attack submarine's have such small crews compared to surface ships, that we really are like a family. Whether we like it or not, if you don't keep your nose clean the whole boat knows. Pillow talk at my house sometimes consists of my spouse and I telling each other what happened on "da boat." At times it is frustrating, but for the most part it is comforting and honestly I love the dynamics of it.
Couponing! I love it!!!!! I've always been a fan of coupons and used them, but sometime last year I really got heavily into couponing and now many of my friends are all into couponing too. It's great fun and I love finding a spectacular deal. For example, I saved nearly $30 at Target yesterday with all my coupons. :-)
Alright, enough for today. I have got things to do. Peace out friends. I love you!


  1. 1. Did the truck have the giant "balls" hanging from the trailer hitch, too? *insert eye roll here* It really is a shame that that's even allowable. Freedom of Speech.....yeah, yeah, yeah. What do I tell my kid when he mimicks what he saw on that lame sticker?

    2. Congrats! I'm the FRG VP for my husband's command. It's a frigate, and not a whole lot of people participate, unfortunately, but I still really enjoy it.

    3. I'm new to couponing, but it is TOTALLY worth doing! I'm hooked!

  2. Thanks for your thoughts, Liz... you're a smart cookie, and I enjoy your "ramblings".
