An actual post about my life...

I just realized that I haven't actually done this in awhile. I think that's why I started blogging, but then started having so much fun doing everything else that I think I forgot. But, boy, do I really need it. Do you ever feel like you're swimming in a sea of something you don't want to be swimming in, alone and frustrated? I feel like that. I know that I am far from alone, but it doesn't take much to make one feel like that. I have so many wonderful friends and the most amazing family that a girl could ask for. But why is it that the dark always seem to overshadow the good? I find myself in a situation that isn't something that I want to be, nor really think I deserve. Yes, there are always things people (including myself) could have done, or do differently, said differently and what not. I don't know exactly how a lot of it happened for sure. I felt like it got out of hand before I had even realized it. I've been talking to some of my other friends and have learned I'm not alone in this. I've seen it happen time and time again. I think it just comes with being human. We all have feelings, emotions, thoughts and ideas that we come to the table with. Baggage of varying kinds, past hurts and things like that. I know that I do. But I also know that I'm a good person, that I don't stab people in the back, I don't spread lies or rumors, and that I'm loyal to a fault. It is probably the most horrendous thing to doubt, once tride and true friendships. Okay, its not the worst thing in the world, but for dramatic effect you know what I mean. And boy does the internet make things worse. Facebook and email and texting and, things are said, or so very plainly not said, over these devices. It's like a barrier behind which one can shout things at the top of their lungs but not be required to really defend what they are saying. Its like a he said/she said game. And those caught in the cross-fire have to decide who they are going to believe. Then there are those that simply step back completely because they don't want to deal and leave others in a lurch trying to decide, "okay, what is going on over here?" Sometimes I hold it in too long and then explode in a giant word vomit on a random status update. I know!!! It's so horrible!!!! I hate myself for it, but then again, I don't. I'm not sure who is worse, more for letting it carry on or them for not just ripping the band-aid off in one fail swoop. I feel like I'm being forced to make a decision to end something that I don't want to end, that I don't understand.....and frankly I just don't want to make that decision. I feel like I should and some days I want to!! But why can't I? Why can't I just rip it off? There isn't any point in keeping it on? I'm just torturing myself and do they really care either way? Then again, if they don't care then why do they keep me around, in whatever limited form they are keeping me around? I feel so confused and that, perhaps, is the reason why I don't feel like I can make a decision. I feel so uncertain about all of it. So I guess I just wanted to write it all out, hope for an amazing opportunity for myself to be rid of things or for that choice to be taken out of my hands.

But anyway, gosh I feel so much better! This blogging thing works man! So on to happier things! Check out some amazing blog hops and please please please check out my giveaway! oh and a couple new things on I made :) contact me on my facebook design page if you're interested :)

Military Spouse Friday Fill-In!


So this is my first one of these! I kept seeing these on some of the other girls blogs but never made time to do it!! So yay, here's to my first one of many!!!

1. Were you named after anyone?

Sort of. My mom got inspiration for my name from a girl she went to high school with named Rhea. And there you go :) I get, "hey were you named after that Fleetwood Mac song," A LOT!!! No I wasn't thank you. Don't get me wrong, I think Rhiannon is a fine name...but I don't think I would care to be named after a witch. And Yes I had my name before that crazy singer girl too!! Plus I spell it way prettier!! Rheanna vs Rihanna?

2. What color, if any, are your toenails usually painted?
Usually a red or a pink :)

3. How do you flush a public toilet? Hands? Feet? Something else?
My foot naturally, like any good woman should :) LOL!!!

4. When you were a little kid, which TV character did you have a crush on?
Gosh, I would have to go with one that many girls my age will say, JTT, jonathon taylor thomas naturally. But apparently I had a huge crush on Tom Hanks from when he was on Bosom Buddies! Google it, trust me :) My first brush with celebrity was around that time of the show and we were in the airport in Sacramento and I saw Tom and his wifey walking through the airport and I yelled Bosom Buddies!!!!!! Most people don't know that his son lived here with his first wife (in Sacramento) and he came to visit and probably didn't want to be seen, so he shoved me in all my 5 year old glory, out of the way! meanie!!!!

5.Let’s say you had to lose one of your five senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell). Which one would you choose? Why?
Hmmmm, probably smell...although I hear its related to taste...grrr....I'm not sure.

I'm also hopping today, so check out my hop friends, and then make sure to come back here on Sunday for the very first addition of my own hop!!!! I also have a great giveaway so check out the tab for that please!!!!

Happy Veterans Day!

Well, its Veteran's Day! Its a special day in my family because my husband is in the Military. Its also a special day because we are a parade family and there is a huge parade today in town. Its full of all the things my son just loves looking at, tanks and helicopters and other people in uniform. This year we're getting him dressed in his uniform from Halloween. He's going to be thrilled. I love the pride I feel just being at the parade and watching. I am so honored to be a Military Spouse. I am so proud of my Country and my Husband. I just am filled emotion as I think about other family members that have served our Country. Both my grandfathers, one in WWII and one in Korea. A Great-Uncle who was actually KIA in WWII and received a Purple Heart. There is such a legacy that I think we don't remember often enough, especially as we dwell on the current situation in the world. So as you go through your day, remember those who are serving and those who have served. Regardless of how you feel about what is going on today, the least they deserve is your respect. Thank a Veteran, past serving or currently serving, today!

I'm hoping today as well!
