Military Spouses Appreciation Day!

So, a friend of mine is hosting a Military Spouse give away! Being a Military spouse has it's ups and downs. It was a whole lot different before they started really getting into the nitty gritty of getting Sam retired. Now, he sort of goes in at odd times, gets off at odd times. There are times where he barely goes to work at all, but is gone for most of the days for this appointment or that appointment. Don't get me wrong! I'm not complaining! He's non-deployable, which makes me happy, but in a sad sort of way. I know that he misses it. I know that he feels like he's letting his unit down at times. But I also know that he secretly enjoys the perks of being (almost) retired. Since he hardly wears his uniform any more, he goes to work in khakis, polo shirts, and dress shoes. He told me the other day that one of the "new guys" walked in the office and called him Sir because he thought that he was an Officer standing in the office dressed the way he was. I giggled because for 1, he could have been an Officer, he just didn't want to wait to go to OCS and simply enlisted. He does have a Bachelors degree in Biology! For 2, I've never seen a chubby Officer before! I love that man... *sigh*

Without further ado, for all of my military friends that read my blog, here is the link to get to her wonderful giveaway! CLICK ME!!
