Military Moms: July-August 2011 - Page 4  

post #61 of 71

Sorry haven't been on. We had damage, but didn't evacuate. In all, it wasn't terrible.

I've been very busy with school starting, Mae walking EVERYWHERE now and chasing her, doing photo shoots for other Marine wives in the area, etc.

glad to hear you are ok, nice you didnt have to evacuate without dh!

thanks for checking in

oh yes that... they decided at the very last minute that DH got to be home with us too! Exact orders from the commander were "men who have families need to be with them." and next thing he knew hubby was being told "we found a single Marine to replace you, go be home with your wife and kids."

Sometimes the Marine Corps gets it right.

it is really nice when they do things like that right.  (and you wonder why folks get married so quick and young in the military sometimes!)

post #65 of 71

so they are finally getting the first batch of Social Groups put together, we need a second group leader and a final thought about our name

 

anyone want to step up, im thinking our group changes folks pretty slowly, it will be very little work and we can change co group leader s at any time and there can be as many as we want, we just need to start with at least two

 

as for  a final name choice (it can be changed but probably not in the first month as they are doing set up)

 

what do folks like best:

 

  1. Military Family Life
  2. Military Life
  3. Military Family & Friends

That's awesome! Yay!

New Group Name: I like Military Life .. I think it encorporates everyone, without leaving anyone behind (not-yet-moms, not-yet-married, etc)

I can, I've been wanting more reason to be active on mothering again, I've been lurking more than anything lately.

I think I prefer "Military Family Life" because that explains us the best, it's not just wives... but everyone in the family and what it does to our lives.

sounds good MP, i will be happy to have you as a group leader. (hard to believe that there would be a day that you would be a lurker duck.gif)

 

Military Family Life does not roll of the tongue as easy and Military Life, but i do think it is closer to who we are and what MDC is.

post #69 of 71

Well we can always shorten it to MLF lol

post #70 of 71

ok that is sooooo wrong! ( i guess that is why we keep you around winky.gif)

 

anyway without further ado here is the link to the social group Military Family Life there is not a an easy way to navigate to the groups if you dont have a link, so save that or come back here to click thru. the will be an upgrade within the month that gives a button on the main navigation bar for all the groups. once you join, it shows up in your side bar and is helpful that way.

 

See you all over there!
