After deployment 

I wanted to share this great site for military spouses who have no idea on how to deal with all the issues around deployments, pre during and post deployments. Deployment is over for him now and I’m thankful he is home safe, decompressing and readjusting to civilian life. It’s kind of unfair that  spouses don’t get much training or information on what to expect or how do deal with the many issues that come up around deployments. At least for reservist. I received one phone call every couple months from an office asking if I’d had contact with my loved one. I’d say “yes” and then that would be the end of the call. Very cold way of checking up on you. Maybe I’m venting or rambling. Doesn’t really matter. But what does matter to me is that if you are struggling… that you find help. Help won’t always come to you. That’s how I found this site. 

Great site for military spouses who have no idea or don’t get any training on how to deal with all the issues around deployments, pre and post deployments.

I also connected with another military girlfriend this week, one who’s boyfriend is deploying in a few weeks. I hope to get together with a small group of ladies in the next couple weeks so if you are looking for a support group as a military wife or girlfriend in the SF Bay Area please email me, or comment on this page and I will get back to you.

Dia de los Muertos (freebie) … coloring book coming soon!

I’ve been doing a lot of sharpie drawings in my spare time when I can’t get to my paints. Rather than hoard them in my sketchbook, I thought I’d share them. Maybe they’ll become a coloring book when I collect enough of them to call it book. Here’s one I’m sharing and a sneak peak at few others. For the freebie click on the image and print and have fun with markers, crayons or paint.  Enjoy!
