Hmm...I'm in a bit of a delemma here. Sep. 7th, 2004 @ 02:28 pm
Okay, here's the deal...

My boyfriend is graduating from basic on October 15th. I want to fly up to see him, but I don't know if I have the money to do that right now. Have any of you been to an A school graduation? Are they more lenient about letting them spend time with families, or do they still have to be back on base by 8:30 or whenever? I'm thinking that I might just have to hold off and visit for that graduation instead, but I haven't really been able to find any info on A school graduations, only basic.

Also, what is life like during A school? I heard something about them having weekends off and such. Any info on that? I may just come up for Thanksgiving weekend or something, but I want to make sure that I'll actually get to spend some quality time with Bryan, and not just meet him for dinner or something.


P.S. - MAJOR Thanks to all of you who posted in my last entry with all the helpful advice! You were all very helpful. :)

Important Question Sep. 5th, 2004 @ 01:25 pm
Does anyone know about the Navy's deployments. Because my husbands parents just said that they heard on the news that the USS Lincoln's deployment is being moved to next month instead of early next year, and i don't know if i can eve handle that considering my husband is barely getting back from this little deployment in two weeks, and i just found out yesterday that i'm pregnant. I just wanted to know if anyone heard of anything...

No news, good news? Sep. 4th, 2004 @ 11:07 pm
Hi everyone,
I still havent heard from my marine sincen his last letter in April. In his last letter he said he will see me when he gets back. I am still writing him and sending him care packages. He is supposed to be coming back less than 2 months. Not sure what to think. I have hope and maybe I'm just getting ready to be a military wife (just kidding) anyways thanks for your support and I'll keep you all posted. Any comments appreciated!

hotel help :) Sep. 5th, 2004 @ 01:08 am
Have any of you ladies been to a Navy graduation at the Great Lakes facilities? Bryan (my boyfriend) is graduating October 15th and I want to plan a trip up there, but I want to make sure that I don't get stuck in a crappy hotel (I want to feel comfortable staying/sleeping there). If you've been in the area and have any recommendations of a certain hotel, or even a horror story of another, please share.

Also, have any of you used websites like www.expedia.com? I was looking up flights/lodgings through there, and the prices seemed to be pretty reasonable, but if any of you have experiences with that as well, please advise. Thank you!

Hey guys... I need some advice!
This may sound silly but I live in Miami, FL so I'm kinda on the path of hurrican Frances right now.... I'm not sure if he knows anything about it yet but I don't know whether I should tell Jhonatan about this whole hurrican situation. I mean usually I would tell him all about it and even send him maps and stuff like that but I don't want to freak him out. Also his father and his step mother live in Miami and they have a 2 year old baby... so I know Jhonatan will be really worried about all of us. So do you guys think i should tell him all of this or should I not tell him and save him the grief??

I tried to get an appt for my son in the Peds clinic today because I think he has an ear infection. They are booked today and tomorrow, closed friday and monday, so when I asked what to do, they said take him to ER. I am not going to ER for a possible ear infection. This isn't the first time this has happened, pretty much every time I try to get him an appt they are full. A few times I've opted to go to ER just so I could get the medicine I needed, but thats insane to wait 3+ hours for them to possibly tell me that he just likes to play with his ears. So my question is, does anyone go to a civilian pediatrician because the military pediatrician is too overbooked? If so, how would I go about doing that and what does it cost? Thanks in advance.

Good evening ladies! I heard mention a few posts back about Ashworth College. Well, I am seriously thinking about enrolling there. All of you ladies with experience with this college, what did you think of it? And does anyone know how the Montgomery G.I. bill would apply to correspondence courses? Thanks!!
» Magazines
I'm going through all of my magazines (I get almost 40) and deciding which ones I want to change the address to, which ones I want to cancel, and which ones I'll try to give away.

If possible, I'll just change the name/address of the subscription on any of the following if anyone wants them. Otherwise, I'm just going to cancel the subscription.
