MilSpouse Blog Hop!

Hi!  My name is ABW, and I have been married to Gunner for over 15 years.  He joined the Army before I met him, so I've been along on this ride forever.

We have three very cute, energetic, kids that give us a run for our money.  Em is 12, Abs is 9, and Junior is 3.

We survived four year long deployments--1 to Bosnia and 3 to Iraq--and Gunner is headed to Afghanistan this summer.

I'm overly educated, under-employed, and spend my days training or thinking about training for triathlons.

Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day!  (At least I read somewhere that it was, but who really knows.  With an Abs up half the night, lack of sleep these last few days is making me imagine things I think,)

Yet another blog hopper, bouncing in. :-) I can empathize with the underemployment woes, but the triathlon training is a far cry from anything I've ever attempted -- very impressive!
