Just saying hi.

A rant, to start: Memorial Day is not about all service members. It is about the ones who paid the ultimate sacrifice- death. It kind of bothers me that every patriotic holiday has turned into "thank the soldiers." Veterans Day is a great day to catch everyone, July 4th for celebrating the first revolutionaries and the start of our great nation, but Memorial Day is about those who aren't here. But that's just me, I guess.

Okay, so I am going back to Drum this weekend to get in some Army wife good times with some amazing ladies. It's been kind of low key around here lately, just lots of cleaning (make it stop) and hanging out. I have had a few late mornings and not so many late nights. I've been a bit off lately.

But today would have been Alex's 29th birthday. Here is my tribute:

I uploaded a video on facebook of me singing happy birthday and trying the rum. No makeup, of course because I don't have any shame.

Hope you all have great weekends.


  1. I had the same bothers over Memorial Day myself, though I didn't bother to say anything. My husband was tagged and I saw lots of thank you's to those serving and the vets, but saw very few tributes or thanks to those who have lost their lives. It made me sad and pissed off. Ugh.

  2. I totally agree with your Memorial Day thoughts! It bugged me every time people on Facebook were all like "Happy Memorial Day!! Yay soldiers!!". People really need to stop and think.

  3. I totally agree with you on Memorial Day! People just don't get it. My hubs gets sooo mad when people thank him for his service on that day
