Updates and A Turtle Rescue :)

2:55 PM

Hey there strangers! (Or maybe I'm the stranger!) It's been a long time since I've last written an Update post. The summer has been kicking my butt, but at the same time I can say I've been uber productive and it's been the busiest summer I ever can remember!

I'm gradually improving and building on my skills in web design as I learn more CSS and HTML.  In hopes to make this an eventual side business by project, I've been slowly building a client base. I'm so excited to announce I've had three paid blog design jobs recently with high recommendations!

FUTURE EDIT:
This is now an ongoing business called The Lady Gadget!
I work with Blogger blogs now mostly!

I'm also working on a project that will connect with this. I could use YOUR help!

What I need from YOU:
  • A list of computer or technology questions you have in operating that tarnation technology that makes you want to pull your hair out...
  • Topics you'd like to see covered explaining how to work our every day technology (smartphones, computers, tablets, etc.). STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW!
  • Any troubleshooting topics you may have come across with your technology. Do these sound familiar? ;)
    "How do I fix this....? How do I find the...? How do I jibblly what with this thingamagigget...?"

    I plan on answering these VERY IMPORTANT questions in my project. If you’re interested in contributing and helping me out, leave me a comment I'll get back to you! :)

    Onto other things.... 

    TBS is over half way done now! *celebrating fanfare music* . It's been full of challenges for him and me. Long days, short nights, barely a couple hours to recap our days and reconnect. I even survived the first week and a half or so “range week” where Jason had to be out in the field with no contact. I admit I cried at first and it was tough, but being prepared it helped me get through the next long week with the third one right around the corner and me ready like a pro.

    I have been engaged in events with the wives here, trying to make connections and stay busy in the social world with potluck dinners at each other's homes and learning more about our current life. I will blog about some of these events in upcoming blog post if ever I get the time!I have to say, breaking into new social circles isn't easy...one day at a time...

    I’m consistently going through professional counseling and now attending group therapy on Wednesdays as well as my counseling session so I'm not having to drive in traffic as much.  I'm learning some breathing exercises and coping techniques to help me get through my day in a more normal way. 

    I've been very quiet unlike I was at first. That's because this has been an intense process. Not things I have wanted to write about or even could in the moment. One day I might share, but for now all that matters is I'm finding and recognizing the problems. I’m finally working on them now that I know what to work on. This is another major step in the right direction and it's going to take time. I have to keep reminding myself that chronic PTSD doesn't just go away overnight and takes time to work through.

    This summer I also have been slowly making new friends. One of which I randomly met at our church! We get along great and I wish we had more time to spend together cause when we do get together we always find some kind of adventure to get into.

    Today's adventure started with us pairing up to run some errands...
    She needed me to watch her 2 yr old {One of my FAVORITE 2 yr olds! Such a cool kid.} while she checked out a yard sale find.  

    On the way back, she spotted a turtle in the middle of the road! Cars were just driving down the road without a care and so after a few concerned glances and what look to be a near miss, we picked up the turtle and put it in the back of the truck.


     Thankfully there was a park nearby where we think he came from. He had quite the trip as we walked across a bridge and down the park's pathways to find the best spot for him to be released. Every now and then, spotting the water, he poked his head out which of course became his photo op time. :P.







    Shortly after setting him down on a muddy bank, the rest of him popped out. He waddled down the bank to the foilage and water, happy as can be and truly thankful. Just look at that face! :) 

    Unfortunately I don't have a picture of us because we forget to take one EVERY time and I never speak up which I should! {If you're reading this friend, we need to write reminders on our phones, the car, OURSELVES to take some pictures lol!}

    Many more posts to come if I ever can get around to it. Again one day at a time. Lots of other things have taken priority, but I'm glad to get an update in so ya'll don't think I or the blog died. We are still very much alive. :)
