You'd have to be living on another planet to not know the third installment to the Vampire vs Werewolf saga is upon us. Or that Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha are back to have more sex and set more fashion standards in the city. Why do we know so much about these movies and for how long have we known about them? You better believe it wasn't by accident, and even more than that, if you are a start-up entrepreneur or an experienced business veteran, you should put down the popcorn and… Continue

Our pets might not
understand the words ‘We're moving!’ but they have a keen sense of
awareness within their environment. The family seems anxious or daily routines have changed. How can you help your pet with the changes of a move?…

Why do you have to go through the trouble of inventorying your home, at least inventory your valuable items such as electronics, collectibles, jewelery or antiques?
In case of a damage or loss you need to be able to prove that you owned the item and you want to show what it is worth. A few years ago the military added an important benefit for our PCSing military families:
For personal… Continue

NAMMAS Family, one of our members, Renee Saunders sent me this link to a great opportunity to send a FREE photo book to your deployed or away member! I did one of these books for my husband when he was deployed to Afghanistan. He LOVED it, and trust it sure wasn't free!
Use a coupon code supplied on the site for one free 20 page soft cover book. Definitely worth a look, and even if you don't have anyone deployed you can still get one done. What a great gift for Mother's Day,… Continue

I was speaking to an acquaintance on the phone one day when she heard
her garage door open. "Oops, gotta go Lori!", she exclaimed. "Why, are
we talking too long?", I asked. "Nope. My husband's home and it's time
for lunch 'n' love."
As I hi-fived her over the phone lines I was happy for her. That's the
way to take care of your man, I thought. And ultimately she is taken
care of. It's no wonder when I see them they're always touching each
other and look… Continue

Yes it's true. Sometimes, every so often, as you move around the military or associate with people in the military, you will meet her. She's the one who is stirring up trouble in your neighborhood. She wears her husband's rank. Her kids are more well-behaved than yours. Home-schooling makes them smarter. And when you meet her, you will know. She's the one I'm warning you about.
It is unfortunate in our wide and wonderful military, there are some spouses who don't realize they did… Continue

We were only 2 weeks into my husband's deployment. The kids and I happily went to Target and my 3 year old dutifully kept me on task by reminding me we were there to shop for daddy. It was time to send him his first "box of love." I asked her what she thought he needed. She said vaseline for his ashiness. I thought that was funny. And toothpaste and Q-tips. I thought that was sweet. "Oh, Mommy!", she exclaimed. "Don't forget a pink purse." I think I had to draw the line there.
