Or trying to anyways

I'm moving in with my cousin up in Temecula! So excited! But its taking a little while to get there. My moms house is a disaster with my stuff everywhere. I have to go through the boxes and boxes of things that were suddenly packed up in a rush last week. I know for a fact I ended up with a bunch of Chris's stuff. It kinda makes me mad. I got things like his poker chips... wth? What do I need those for? I still have his laptop, I took it because it is our biggest argument. And its really not fair that he gets to keep it when I need one too. But, I am buying a new one later this week and giving this one back.

We actually aren't doing this on horrible terms. Yes we argue- a lot. But we've always argued a lot. The big issue here is that he thinks I owe him the World (even tho he will deny it until he is blue in the face). And I don't owe him the World. This whole marriage has been US and he's making it Me and Him. So that's our biggest drama I think so far.

But back to the move. I am working on getting a car that gets better gas mileage. The Yukon sucks gas. And the drive is nearly an hour to work each way (or so Shannon says). I think I am buying my old Camry back- YAY! But I have to figure out how to get a $3,000 loan. Oh and did I mention that my credit is shitty? Fabulous.

But all in all I am in a fabulous place where I am super comfortable and happy. And life is getting better slowly but surely.

Project 365?

I first heard about Project 365 from Kassi. IDK if that is the official name or something she just called it. But regardless, I'm considering starting it. I know nothing about photography. But Its a good way to learn right?

So I'd like some input. Project 365 or not?

Why I won't leave CW

...because of my divorce

Corpswives started as a support system to get me through this last deployment. I signed up, thinking I wouldn't use it. Little did I know...

It turned into one of the most amazing "friends" for me. It really is. The whole board is like a person to me. When I have a question, I go there. When my heart is breaking, I go there. Its not like I am dependent on it to go through my day. There are things I keep from them, but there are also those things that I cannot WAIT to tell them. One day that time will come. But I have managed to gather some of my best friends from that website.

I won't leave, because it is a part of me. Marine Wife or not. I am a CW sister. In the future, I may marry another Marine. Or I may marry a civilian. Regardless, I am going to need my girls support. And they are there for me. And I love them for it.

Starting Over!

In the midst of this stupid stupid divorce, I have decided it is time to start a new blog! Its gonna be happy. And all about how I am trying to start over from a place where I was comfortable. This should be good!

Oh and this time, we're steering clear of the work stuff.
