This is my story of how I have done at letting go of some things. I started this blog when my son was in High School , during a deployment and facing big life changes. I have come out the other side of those changes. Emptynest, long since empty. Our son is now a Lt in the USMC and now we are facing exiting the Marine Corps possibly in the next few years. One thing I have learned is life is constantly in flux, so this is my life...in flux.
THe Harting Family

Today I had the opportunity to attend a CAX LINKS. It is put on by MCCS for Family Readiness training and for any spouse and or family member that would like to know more about the Marine Corps. It is a great training and even if you are a seasoned spouse like myself or a brand new spouse (which it is geared toward) it is still a great place to go to meet people and you may learn something you didn't already know. CAX LINKS is not offered a lot and it's a break from the regular class room LINKS. You actually get to go out and have fun while learning the information. Our CAX was hosted by an Artillery Battery from 3/11 and it was very interesting because I didn't really know a lot about artillery except that they had big guns! Over all it was a nice day and I met some great ladies. I would recommend doing it if you haven't, I promise you, it will be worth your time.

I also heard the answer to what I had already thought to be true. Question was, "What is appropriate attire for the Marine Corps Ball?" The answer from protocal was, "A floor length gown is appropriate, not short."...so there ya go!
