Back to Blogging

Ok, so, I have not been keeping up with my blog lately. After being threatened.. I'm finally blogging. Totally kidding about being threatened, but I'm definitely rooting for some $30 cookies ;)

Any way, So... Deployment has started. Here's to the next several months of doing exactly whatever I want as far as decorating our house we purchased last deployment! Chyeah, he told me to do what *I* want to the house. Definitely going to have some fun with it.

So, what's different for me this deployment so far? Other than making this deployment #2, nothing really. We aren't far enough into it for it to seem any different than their sea trials. So, maybe when we've surpassed the one month mark it will register to me that he will not be home until later this year.

And another thing is different.. we are home owners. So, instead of house hunting- we're, no, *I* am making this house more- us! Err.. well, me. But he likes what I like, so us. When asking him about what to do around here, he said, "Do what you want. This is your house. I'm not here enough, so I want it to be exactly like you want it because you're the one who sees it every day.". I'll jump at the opportunity to have it my way ;)

So, what have I been up to?
Well, the few days before deployment started, I somehow managed to jam pack 7 full photo session into 2 days.  So the week the ship left, I didn't leave my office. I was ALWAYS on the computer- just never on blogger.

I've working on a lot of stuff for the FRG, It definitely keeps me busy. Just how I like it!
I got a part time job to keep me even more busy and the extra cash is nice too.

So, I'm running 2 businesses (CRushGFX and Christina Rush Photography), working a part time job, volunteering as the Media Chair for the FRG, and I'm going to a run every morning to get my butt (literally) in shape. So, somewhere in there.. I need to figure out when to blog.

Another issue. I feel REALLY repetitive when I blog... extremely repetitive. I feel it's the same posts over and over again: He's home, he's gone, he's home, he's gone... and an occasional- oh shit that just happened.

So, trying to change it up some, I will be posting about my adventures with Pinterest and making my house pretty. Hopefully pretty.

What am I working on now? My yard. It's heinous. Probably my biggest project yet. So, if Terri hadn't already stole it.. this would be the "Misadventures of a Navy Wife", why? Because I'm clumsy, haven't a clue what I'm doing with my yard and well... I tend to plan big and make a mess. So, this could be interesting- for you. You might get a few laughs, hopefully.

As of right now, I have a bruise on my arm from prickly seed pod that came from one of the 4 trees in my back yard. How'd I get it? Well, I was weed-eating (hey, that's how us Southerners refer to it), and one of the little annoyances was hiding in a patch of grass along the fence line. When the weed-eater line hit it, it hit me, Hard. I have another bruise on my wrist, it's rather large and has a knot in it.. I have no clue what I did. My poor legs look horrible. Needless to say, I won't be bare legged for a while. I'm the smart one who was weed-eating with shorts on. So, debris flew back a couple times and scratched me up pretty good. It's all worth it though, My yard is slowly looking better and I will soon be starting on my bigger projects, like a concrete patio, new flower bed(s), a garden, putting in a hammock, a bench, etc. Yeah... I'm expecting a lot of ouchies!

Well, that's my blog for now.

Terri, are you happy now?! :p


  1. Glad you are keeping busy. And so glad you are blogging again. Can't wait to see what you do with your house!

  2. yes!!!!!!! lolol

  3. Yay! I love your posts! :) And speaking of concrete patios, I thought this was the neatest thing:

    It's concrete that is stamped and stained to look like wood. Talk about low maintenance! lol I want to do this for our future home, whenever we decide to buy again.
