If you are about to marry a Marine, read this before you register for your china.Don’t waste time looking at fancy glassware to serve up mixed drinks with your friends.
So now, I shower with my cell phone right outside, bring it to Pilates class, where this morning I heard it ringing while we were in our Zen modes and I snapped right out of it to see “unknown” appear and a voicemail. I want to be able to share everything with Gabe, but I can’t because he’s gone.
The Marine Corps doesn’t want you to have to suffer through all these things for more than… Before you know it, your Marine will come home and say those famous three words: “We have orders.” And you can say goodbye to that duty station and start on a new adventure.

We all know that the Corps likes to dish out mandatory fun for our Marines.
We have been in our current house for two and a half years and I can already feel these white walls closing in on me.
I may need to buy all new furniture…or knock down a few walls, or something.
