Reblog: Transition Points

September 30, 2014

The above article in Maritime Executive is a good resource for those of us “living the life” with children. I’ve blogged about my own hits and misses and guarantee you that what works (does it really?) for our family will most definitely not translate for another. You have to find what works best for you and your family, in your circumstances. I am currently participating in a FB forum of MM spouses. Many of the joys and complaints shared are universal but it becomes painfully obvious who the long-timers are and who are the ones struggling through those first years–with and without children. It has definitely made me more appreciative of my saint of a Chief, that’s for sure.

I would make a snarky comment that you can also tell 95% of the time who is married to a deckie or to an engineer too but that wouldn’t be nice.


Cool Shipwreck Discovered

December 2, 2011

DH sent this to me. I guess he wants to contribute to my “Just Because…” postings and keep it maritime related. 🙂


And I learned something new: Lake Michigan is one of the few places on Earth that shipwrecked wooden ships will generally remain intact because of the fresh water. Cool.
