Russian Protestors

With the war coming to an end, trying to figure out why 30,000+ Russians were out in the streets today protesting. Do they not have televisions over there? Do they not see the conflict is coming to an end? I myself was late to work this morning as I sat clued to the television watching the American soldiers in Baghdad.

I’m really surprised by the growing number of people who are jumping on the boycott French products bandwagon.

I even dated one for a while and thought he might have become my future husband. But it was not to be. He’s now a JAG. I have no regrets about the relationship ending because deep down I wasn’t really thrilled about becoming a military wife. As much as he wanted to make me number one, I never was. That did not sit well with me. He was extremely committed to being becoming […]
