Fairly new military wife...

Hi everyone,

 I am a pretty new military wife and I figured this would be a great forum to join for support. Just wanted to give everyone a big hello! And I hope you don't mind me posting on anything....

Any advice for being a militray wife would help too haha! Smile

Re: Fairly new military wife...

  • We like new people! My XH was born in Pueblo, but I'm sure I'll like you better.

     

    Only advice, if your sn is any part of your name, start a new sn! 

    I've seen a lot of military surprise homecomings. It wouldn't work on me. I always have my back to the corner and my face to the door. Looking for terrorists, criminals, various other threats, and husbands.

    Are you a nurse?  I'm an RN, only been working about a year though.  I'm Risa and my H is in the CG.  I've been working in home care since last October and I am itching to move on.  Wish I liked ER/ICU/CCU stuff, but it's just too fast paced and high stress for laid back me (there's a handful of openings in those departments alone around here).  Welcome to the board.

  • Hi!! I'm Meagan, my H's AD in USMC, currently located in Southern Cali. We have a dachshund named Busa :) Welcome to the military family. 
  • Glad you changed your SN! Welcome to the board, I'm Stan. I hope to become a Marine Officer. 

    I love God, the United States of America, the Marine Corps, and my family (including my boyfriend and our dog), in that order.

    I'm born and raised in California, and we live here now. I'm hoping if and when I get in, that we end up in North Carolina. I would prefer Japan, but that won't happen. I love it here, but I'm not a person who wants to stay in the same place her whole life.

     

    Oh, and for anyone who's bio (not OP) might talk about how they might hate everything about California, keep in mind that A) 29 Palms is not genuine California, you have as many people not from CA as you do. B) You get back the attitude you give generally. I've been all across this country, in Dallas multiple times, and lived in the South for a short time. I even happen to be in the South right now. Southern hospitality has not struck me as any more genuine than any other kind. 

    I've seen a lot of military surprise homecomings. It wouldn't work on me. I always have my back to the corner and my face to the door. Looking for terrorists, criminals, various other threats, and husbands.

  • wow awesome!

    Its a small world!

  • Hi Risa! Nice to meet you!

    I am not a nurse..yet. I am in Nursing school. Currently I work up here in the ICU as a Unit Secretary. I see alot of great stuff...and not so great stuff. Its great experience but also very sad at times as well. Yeah.. I like it here in the ICU. When I become and RN I think I would like ER.

    Yeah I agree sometimes it is too high stress at times and I wanna rip my hair out. But I like it all in all.

    Thanks for the kind welcome!

  • Great! I will stick around. I need all the support I can get =)
  • Wow. Awesome good to know that I have a fellow coloradoan....ish. haha.

    Thank you so much!

  • Just an fyi, it's easier if you quote someone as opposed to reply to their post. It doesn't work like some message boards where the reply ends up right after the op. 

    Quoting works best. :)
