I’m here scheduling a vet appointment for Patches Der Hund, and because she’s about eight years old (we got her as a rescue, so we can’t be sure), she’s considered a senior/geriatric puppy. So, she’s got more gray, a little extra weight, doesn’t like to run as fast … can’t we just call her DISTINGUISHED?
This cutie-patootie is now a loving wife and mother of two little girls, a super-fun awesome auntie to my three, a step-grandma to one (hahahahahaha!), a hardworking police detective for all, a kick-ass friend to many, and one of my most favorite sisters ever. She’s also celebrating a birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jill!
Our bedroom looks like a home improvement store exploded into it, but our master bathroom is completely empty and completely repainted. Tomorrow will be new flooring, new sink, and other updates. Until then, Martin and I are crashing on the pull-out bed in the family room. He’ll watch a movie while I surf Pinterest for other home improvement ideas. You know, since we’re on a roll …

“Sure!” I said. “I used to style my friends’ hair for prom all the time.”
In honor of the Air Force Birthday today, and since I’ve already posted photos from my time at BMT, today’s #TBT photo of me in uniform is from early 2001 when I was an Airman First Class at Ramstein Air Base. Martin had the day off from the Bundeswehr, so he surprised me by showing up at my office with lunch. Continue reading →
This #TBT pic was taken almost 10 years ago, in the fall of 2004, when Martin, Miss C, and I made a day of it in Trieste, Italy. We visited the aquarium there, and then fed the seagulls while having lunch by the water. It wasn’t too cold as long as you sat in the sun. She was a year old.
