MilSpouse Blog Hop

30 April 2010

Another Military Spouse blogger, Julie the Army Wife posted about a MilSpouse Blog Hop over at Riding the Roller Coaster, and I thought it would be fun to join!.


(I swear this is NOT me hiding in said laundry room!)

Gaah I want to chuck Dirt Diver’s computer out the window. Once again it crashed and auto recovery didn’t work for me. Let’s see if I can sum up what I wrote before…

Since it’s Friday I am going to jump on a Blog Hop so I can get the rest of the house cleaned before I partake in some drunken Guitar Hero with Dirt Diver and his friends. I am so excited to play tonight.


Salutations new visitors today! My name is Chelle or “A Muddy PAW”. I am the PERFECT housewife and mother. I keep my cool under any situation. You will never see me staring in a Lifetime Movie Network movie as the example of what you don’t do in life. I keep a perfect picture ready house at all times of the day. I do not implement a 30 second rule to anyone, because I don’t want to waste food. I do not believe in hiding in the laundry room sneaking a Resse’s Peanut Butter cup or a Twix PB Bar that would be hidden from little people. I do not enjoy throwing my feet up at the end of the day and drinking a Pabst Blue Ribbon. GAG! Never would I enjoy such cheap “trailer trash” beer NOR would I collect cans for wind chimes either. I don't sit on my bed watching reality shows surrounded by laundry but not touching a single item because I get too engrossed in the show. I still don’t call a parking lot a “grinder” nor a post a “base”. I don’t still respond “my husband’s MA3 BlahBlah” when he is now in the Army.

I did not swear when I got my divorce from my abusive ex-husband who was also a Marine at the time that I would NEVER EVER date another guy in the military seriously. At 23 I did not spend 2 wonderful years becoming THE player to be stalked by a young impressionable absolutely drool worthy 20 year old Sailor who stole my heart at after blowing off 4 dates with him. I did not fall head over hills in love and remarried after a year of dating.

We did not add 2 more kids to our world of craziness bringing the total to 4, along with 2 cats and a dog. We did not leave almost 5 years of life in the Navy to become civilians in Oregon and enjoy the summer life. Never after 6 months, did Dirt Diver do the “unthinkable” and join the Army. ( I SWEAR not a SINGLE “I told you so” was uttered during that period of time after I told him repeatedly beforehand that he would miss the military!)

And here we are now. Living the perfect life, with picture perfect children who do not fight, yell, slam doors, or cry. They dress and act appropriately, while answering “Yes/No Sir/Ma’am” with a smile on their face. I do not slam doors to exercise my point in the midst of a temper tantrum. We do not become complete and utter chaos when we are together as one.

Like I said “I am Pefect!” in my own world of chaos, laughter, tears, and frustrations. But that’s okay because without all that, life would be absolutely BORING!
