Archive meme....

I've been high-fived by Mango Marie. It's an archive meme. I've been blogging a little more than a year, but I'll give it a shot.

Anyway, here is the reason why this meme was started:

"I know that when I find a new blog that I want to visit again, I rarely have enough time to go back and read everything from the beginning (although sometimes I do!). I want to get to know that person, but it's hard to commit to reading all of the posts from the last 2 years!This meme is designed to make some of those old posts readily available to those who may be new to your blog, or even those who are regulars, just not from the start."

And, here are the rules:
Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you’ve written. But there is a catch:

Link 1 must be about family.

Link 2 must be about friends.

Link 3 must be about yourself.

Link 4 must be about something you love.

Link 5 can be anything you choose.

Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better. Readers - don’t forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!

SOOOO, here I go!

Family :my post for when Husband told me he was deploying, I think this sums up much about us as a military family.

Friends: this post is about making new friends

Me - I couldn't decide between When my camera broke and used old pics to post our "move history" and my 100 things about me for my 100th post

Something I love or should I say someone? This was easy: Tuesday Update: Thursday 13.......#20.....Our hero's homecoming

After going through all of these, I guess this last year was really about surviving a 15 month deployment. I have never felt like a "military advocate"...but most of these are about just that....being a military wife. That was fun......feel free to consider yourself tagged if you haven't done this one.

Okay, I actually had read 4 of those 5 posts. I still can't believe he's home. Are you all fully adjusted?

mamageek-define fully? We are working on it....it is a day to day challenge. We think we have the kinks worked out and something else pops up.

Hi, I'm a new reader. I stumbled onto you in Burgh Baby's comments, maybe. Anyway, I'm here, and I must say reading the post about your husband coming home brought tears to my eyes! How exciting! What an honor to have him as a husband :)

Wow. Just wow. Thanks for sharing.

Great job tommie you definitely know how to make chicken salad out of chicken shit (a GOOD thing!) I love your positive outlook!

Janet said...

I read the ones I hadn't read, and even commented on one. Thanks for letting us get to know you a bit better!

I really liked reading these--I actually went back to some of your old posts when I first started reading your blog--isn't that cool in a weird way that people can learn so much about you without you even knowing it???

I am really with you on the friend thing . . . it is so hard to make and keep friends when every few years you move. You are always starting from the beginning.

Great meme!

Love the post about husband being deployed. You handled that and the entire deployment with such grace. :)
