Just Thoughts....

Posted by rachie on September 8, 2014 at 7:00pm 5 Comments


Just wanted to vent a little.... 

My husband and I have been married a little over 2 weeks now. Yes it's very new! But have been together almost 5 years and have a daughter together.

Vulnerability; capable of or susceptible to being wounded or hurt

Along with many of you, two weeks ago today was the last I saw/talked to my SR. He has known for awhile what he wanted to do. He just wasn't sure about the timing. In Feb., he went and saw the recruiter, then came DEP, and then summer happened (fast). I was so full of pride and happiness for him. I was even giddy.

In my mind I knew he was never in harms ways since I assumed he was never that far…

 I recently started dating a submariner (further more to be referred to as Hercules) on the USS Alabama and he truly is the most wonderful man I have ever known...right after my father of course. I've never been seriously involved with a man in the Navy before and its all so new and shiny...and confusing!
