DH and I went when we were newlyweds, it was fun. I hope we can take the kids someday. As soon as we're debt free we're going to take our first BIG family vacation with the kids, I cannot wait! Maybe that'll be part of the plan.

I went when Butthead was 6 months old. It was incredible! We got to get right up close to dolphins and rays. The whale and dolphin shows were amazing, too.

Don't even accuse my husband of faking his PTSD to get disability pay. Don't even go there. You have no clue what it is like to live with him, and watch him struggle through this. To watch him want to leave the house so badly, but afraid to do so because he's afraid of who's watching him. To watch him walk into a building, and before being willing to really enter he maps out every escape plan he can. To watch him practice "clearing" our home when the kids are asleep so if someone ever breaks in he will know how to walk the house with his gun if it is too dark to see. To walk into the bedroom, bathroom, or wherever, and see a grown man crying so hard he can barely speak because he had a nightmare the night before. Or to see him desperately try to stay awake so he doesn't have those nightmares. You have no idea, and I haven't even scratched the surface. Don't ever think you're being funny, or whatever it is you think, and accuse my husband of anything other than his honorable service.

A lady named Kathy. I've been in an email "loop" with her for like...8 or 9 years. She was a Marine wife (well, she's married many of them if you know what I mean.) And I gave them an update on Chris' appointments and she went on and on about how he was only in 8 years and her husband who was in 20 hasn't even been diagnosed. Sweetie, no offense, but our husbands had VERY different jobs. She even made an underhanded comment in the past about DH's Bronze Star for Valor. I don't get it, but that is not going to fly with me. I don't "go off" very easily, I tend to be very level headed. But attacking my husband is something I will never tolerate, ever. He's a part of who I am, and if you try to tear apart my husband you're essentially tearing me down as well. I don't think so.

Please tell me you tore her a new one. That's disgusting, I can't believe she would even think it's okay to say somethong like that.

I responded with a very direct, but nice email. If she chimes back with anything other than an apology I'll probably have to get it off my chest a little more. I did privately email another woman who's in the loop (who can't stand Kathy either) and vent. I know she'll have my back if push comes to shove. Kathy can be kind of a bully, and I think she assumes I'm an easy target.

I'm so sorry, that's ridiculous. She has no right to act like she "knows" him or knows what you both go through, how rude and insensitive.

It's OK. I need to remember who I'm talking about here.....Kathy. I wish you guys knew her, she's a class act. I don't genuinely dislike many people, but she's one that I do. I've never met anyone more hateful, or egotistical. I remember on her facebook she posted something about how we needed to tell her husband that wives have rank. :roll::lol: I quickly responded with, "Uh, nobody ever pinned rank on my collar..." and she deleted it a few minutes later. She's one of those. She's tried to belittle ME for things before, but I'm cool with that. Want to make fun of me for being a christian, or tell me I need to "wear more makeup", whatever. But attacking DH is something else.

Wow, she sounds downright nasty. And based on the FB thing, obviously she's also the type who doesn't have much tolerance for differing opinions. I can't stand people like that.
And you're the most tolerant person I know. If YOU dont like her...I can't imagine :lol:
She's probably really insecure.

Did Amy's husband get home safely? I don't think I missed it, wondered if anyone heard from her though.

She is. I've tried to give her the benefit of the doubt for years, and I've even felt bad for her....her life must be miserable. But sometimes he strikes the right nerve and lights my fire. Darn her.

I don't see anything that raises concern on her FB, not that it means anything I suppose, but no news on our front is good news?
