Dear Brent

I just wanted to write you a quick little note to give you something to look forward to. I mean I know you are looking forward to seeing us, not working, watching news, playing with the kids and of course sleeping in your bed. But see, you really do need just one more thing to […]

Progression Of A Burn

A personal look at a progression of a burn. I know y’all will be tired of hearing about burns soon enough too, but this is OUR LIFE right now, so what else should I blog about?! The day after it happened Brent sent me the following picture of his burn. It didn’t look half bad […]

Picture of Him

Brent sent me this of him today. I love it. Plus I love getting emails from him with a picture of him in it, ha ha. It always makes my day.

I miss Brent

The days are just getting longer and longer. It’s hotter than hades down here. Things are going on that I want to talk to him about and share with him. Luckily he’ll be home in a couple weeks. I thought that it would get easier the longer we did this. No. It only gets harder […]

What Brent Thinks

I heard this song one day and I played it for Brent. He said “Oh my god that is exactly how I feel when I go to work”. He’s such a good man.

He Loves His Kids

While we do sacrifice as a family with Brent working in Alaska, one of the perks is him coming home for two weeks and we get a family two week vacation. Yes I still have to cook, clean etc but the weight of doing this alone is gone and I am able to actually relax […]

While you are young, very young I feel you respond out of obligation. Not understanding that the purest of emotion you are feeling at that tiny age in your tiny heart is […]

Burning Up His Pockets

So while Mr. Greer was home and his pockets were burning up, besides paying bills, getting my school loans situated and attempting to get our truck note finally caught up we did splurge on some things that we needed and wanted. All three of the kids televisions were shot and I didn’t want to be […]

Like Son Like Father?

Yeah, you think I have it backwards, but in all reality I don’t this is why Dayton “fell” off his bike and was slowly dying He died. Poor little fella. It was such a LONG fall. Apparently Daddy fell off the same bike. And died too.

He Loves Me

I didn’t expect anything for Valentines Day with Brent being gone. I figured when he got home that we would do something together or get something for each other.  But like always my best friend never ceases to amaze me. Which I should have figured, one year he had his brother sneak a rose and […]
