Before I became SemperFi wife, I was an Air Force brat. I have moved 19 times and lived in 5 foreign countries: Canada, Spain, Germany, Turkey and Egypt. Alas, I am only fluent in Canadian.I was born in Abilene, Texas and have no memory of the place. We moved 5 weeks after I was born. My first word was a profanity and I used it in an appropriate manner. I am left handed and I have a Leap year birthday. Next year, I will be 11!! Yayyy!!!
I met my wonderful husband, Lancelot, at a toga party.......
He stood out from the crowd not because of his extremely short hair (AF brat, remember?) but because his extremely short toga. My girlfriends had a bet on whether the man was even wearing underwear and I was sent to determine the winner. Lancelot caught me just as I was to make the determination.Instead of being red faced, I spent the rest of the evening teasing him. Apparently, I had found the recipe to winning the heart of my knight in shining armor. We have been married almost 22 years.
Lancelot and I have three children. Our oldest aka the Dark Prince is a Marine reservist Lance Corporal and a college student. My daughters are twins and just 16 months younger than their brother. The girls are total opposites in looks and personality I consider the three of them to be my finest accomplishment. They all went to college last Fall and empty nest became the reality I had feared for so long. Well, until they came home for the Summer and I found out how well I had adjusted.
I love really bad sci fi, cooking, genealogy, history and of course, chocoloate.I hate goodbyes (who loves them?), the DMV, the smell of cardboard/the sound of ripping packing tape, spiders and lima beans.
So, I have been around the military most of my life. This does not mean I have all the answers.I don't. Our world as milspouses turns on a dime. I am constantly learning new things and having to make adjustments because of what my husband does for a living. I learn something new here every day.
I have lurked at Spousebuzz since it's inception. I am very honored to join the great authors and the equally wonderful commenters here. I look forward to getting to know all of you.Urrahh!!!
