Right now I am strait that, Miserable.

 

Right now I feel like I am back in my old rut.  I am stuck at home with the parents, and of course, now my brother is here.  We have never really gotten along.  Mostly every thing he does bothers the hell out of me.  His condescending attitude, his way of talking/singing to himself at random times... and his common quirks..  they are all just damn annoying and I'm stuck here with it.

 

At least in a week I ge...

The title speaks words.  I learned this phrase while reading comments on a social media sight.  They have come to mean a lot to me honestly.  

I don't know how many of you have heard of the site, but www.reddit.com  is one of my favorite websites on the internet.  It's a social media site, but has a very personal side with it's comments.  It just depends on the 'subreddits' you join, and how you view the site I guess...  but I digress..  

This mornin...

Today my grandmother died.

She had been on the decline for a good long while.  Alzheimer's disease was sadly a prevalent part of the decline. It's very hard to see a woman who is so strong and such a great character decline in this fashion.

She was known for her craft work, and basically her love of creating anything with her hands.  Needlepoint, quilting, basket weaving, and even some woodwork were her favorite hobby's, and she was definitely quite ...

My wife has a way (she's talented) of showing me just how wrong I am in what I think all the time.  Probably one of the things I love most about her.

 

That being said.. I've been humbled a lot tonight.  Things have changed in our relationship... well not changed.  The situation has been there the whole time I've just never fully accepted it I guess.  So now here I am trying to wrap my head around it finally.  I guess I have just lied to myself about it.. trie...

Well, I guess I should write something.

I honestly don't know if what I'm going to type out will make any sense or not.  I'm just sitting here with a blank screen seeing if maybe I start putting my words to the page they will start to make sense in my own head.  I'm sorry for all of you out there who will pull up this article and realize it's a waste of time.  This post isn't for anyone else, and I don't care if anyone reads.. I just guess I might need to push some th...

Hey everybody!

 

Well I don't really have too much to say.  I just figured I should write something at least...  It's been a very grueling week for me so far.  We are in the yards, so we are shifting life somewhat from the ship to a living barge... I have spent most of the last 2 days just moving food from the ship to the barge... ALL day long....  LoL

Right now I'm wondering how the older guys do it since I'm sitting here having a sore back, sore legs, sore hip...

Sometimes I have so much on my mind.. but no 'real viable' outlet for it.. I think that's when i turn to here the most.  I talk to my wife a LOT about things that bother me.. even the thing I'll probably end up ranting about on this blog.. I kinda feel bad putting even a bit of it out here but I need some form of outlet... Specially one that doesn't seem as much like I'm 'yelling or mad' at her... Sometimes I just need to get things off of my mind, and I feel she isn't the person to directl...

January 27th, started this nice 7 month long deployment.  We're still not back yet even...

 

I have literally been halfway across the world now though   As I speak I'm sitting in Spain right now... nice to travel

 

I've seen The Canary Islands, Plymoth England, Naples Italy, Askaz Turkey, Limasol Cyprus, Maldives, Changi Singapore, Phuket Thailand, Djibouti, Civitavecchia Italy, Valencia Spain, and to our current port in Spain... next port is the home port and it...

Frustration is a powerful thing.  It's all I feel right now. 

Certain situations have made it more so even if I understand them... the fact that I'm leaving for a long time very soon, and just that I hate to leave the one I love behind... I'm strait up frustrated.

I wish I knew how to take it better.  Knowing that I leave soon is bad enough but I'm scared I'm alianating some of those who love me while it happens... lack of communication is probably the key.  I just have...

Well.... Where to begin...

I'm not even looking at my 'latest' blogs for a point of reference to say where I've been and what all has occured.  To say, I'm still in the Navy, and making changes to keep it that way.  most likely I'll be re-enlisting in about a year and a half assuming all goes well..

We're overseas at the time being, enjoying some foreign countries and such.. though all i want right now is to be back home with my wife wrapped up in my arms...  One of those th...

Some days I just need to let out steam... some days the shit piles up so high that i can't even see the top of the pile....

 

I've failed 3 pfa's since joining the Navy... 2 of which I can argue.. since the first one I passed but they have my physical part as a no show instead of any scores..

 

The second, yes I failed, I admit that. was overweight...

 

The third.... well this is a good one.. I originally thought I passed the weigh in... I was told I passed the t...

it was a hot smothering july (or june.. was a long while ago) at the equator when a certain sailor and his shipmates crossed the equator.  sweat dripped off all his companions only long enough to be swept away by the salt water.  Davey Jones and Neptunus Rex had come.


It is an old sailor's 'right' to go from pollywog to shellback.  Many do not earn this privilage, and thus are still Wogs to the belief of all who sail the sea's under Neptune's blessing!  Woe be those who ...

Well I know BFD has a lot of stories... well so do I actually, but the problem I have is that I'm still enlisted... if I wasn't in the Navy now.. i probably wouldn't care too much... LoL  but since I'm here.. you never know what they might see...

 

I Have just recently recieved the best training for FP (force protection aka kill the badguys before they kill you)...

Was a drillset that was incredibly realistic.  They would have people taking over compartments of ...

It's odd that so much has happened and yet I don't have much to say?  Or maybe that's just a diversion tactic of my own to keep my from the hard topics...

In truth a lot of what I might say won't be much of a read to any but maybe my Wife.  She's the one who knows what I'm talking about and might grab more from it than anyone else.

So I will start at the beginning in the full blatant truth.

I've cheated on my wife. She's known of this for a long time now, and though she h...
