I’m a wife on marriage number 3. The other 2 didn’t get my kind of crazy, but hubby #3 is a winner, y’all! My life is infinitely better with him in it.

I’m a mom/step-mom. Boo is my 11 year old daughter, C-girl is my 17 year old step daughter and D-dude is my 20 year old step son. Boo is just starting to enter those wonderful tween-teen years where she’ll be lucky to make it out alive. She is definitely the beat of my heart though, and she knows it. <sigh> C-girl is a typical 17 year old: thinks she knows it all and is almost ready to take on the world. D-dude has finally got his head screwed on a little more straight and is headed in the right direction. It’s actually NICE to hang out with him now. A few years ago? Not so much. But that’s all normal, right? Please tell me it’s normal?

I was in the USAF for just shy of 10 years and I miss it every single day. It was the one place where I felt I actually belonged….but didn’t….all at the same time. Transitioning back to civilian life, when I never really knew what that looked like BEFORE I joined the military, has been extremely difficult. It’s a struggle, to say the least.

I suffer from PTSD, OCD, depression and anxiety. I don’t want or need sympathy. I just want it out in the open. These things MIGHT come up in the future, so just fair warning! 😉

I love animals of pretty much all shapes, sizes, colors and textures. Except snakes. And spiders. And sharks. Casa Giggles currently has 3 pets: a 10 year old German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix, a 9 year old tabby cat and a 4 year old guinea pig. If it were left up to Boo and I, we’d have a whole houseful of different animals, but the hubby says no.

I love reading and watching movies. I love music and singing, even if I’m no Mariah Carey. I love photography. It’s the only thing you have left after the moment is gone.

That’s about it, in a nutshell.
