Hi Ladies!     My dh is an AGR with the WI Nat'l Guard, and is currently deployed.  He's due back within 4-6 weeks, thank goodness!  I feel like I've been managing/surviving for this whole last year, that I've been handling everything well, but I swear this last week I have been losing it.  Losing focus, losing stamina, losing my memory and sanity.  I'm hoping this "fog" won't be staying with me until dh gets home!!  
Hi ladies!  My dh is AGR with the WI NG.  He found out recently that there is about a 50% chance of him deploying for a year, with him leaving in about 6 weeks.  He has to get approved by folks over in Europe to fill this slot, though, because it is several grades above his rank; we have no idea when he might find out whether he's going or not, but the CO of the detachment wants him for this slot.  My question is, how do I prepare my son (will be turning 9 around the...

I love to keep my house on the chilly side, around 65F in the day and 60F at night during colder months.  I hate hate hate being warm.  I'd much rather dress in layers and pile blankets on.  :)   I'm usually miserable all summer since I try to keep it around 75F during the day, and even that feels sweltering to me.  I  ; it makes me !!!!
For my aunt's 80th birthday several years ago I gave her this cookbook.  She was absolutely tickled, and it brought back so many memories of the way she cooked when she was a young wife and mother.  I thought about giving her a cookbook of depression era recipes, but she said since they lived on a farm it wouldn't have really been as relevant to her as it would have been to someone who grew up in a town or city.
