Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
I’ll play along! my husband is in the army reserves and has someone managed to avoid being deployed lo these 3 1/2 years. only 2 1/2 to go (insert superstitious practice here). with 6-18 month deployments, it’s a wonder *any* family survives having a parent gone for so long, let alone those who are short an income while mommy or daddy is away! we’re proud of you, too, brother-in-law and sister!
Super idea. I was going to say “Splendid idea” but that sounded nerdy, so I said “Super”...turns out that is dorky, too!!!
I hope you get hundreds of comments on this post!
Now I’m all inspired and in awe and weepy and what not.
You never cease to amaze.
What a great thing to do. I couldn’t image being away from my family for that long. Or missing my husband or dad for that long. It’s truly amazing what our soldiers endure to protect us.
My sister and her husband are both in the army. I could not do it, but am thankful for those who serve.
these people are my heroes(and not in that cheesy way it came out).
I cannot imagine having to be that strong.
I’ll be praying for your sis and brother-in-law. I can’t even imagine what it is like.
My cousin went to Iraq. He has been back about a year now…
Thanks to him for keeping me safe!
For the families, and for your awesome brother-in-law!
So can we only leave one comment?
Stories like this make me cry because I know first hand what each of these families feels (I am reminded of my own overwhelming emotions each time I see and hear these stories).
Take care “brother in law” of Mrs. Flinger and know that everyone is thinking of you and wishing you a quick and safe return.
I have many people I love who have deployed, so this just makes my heart (And eyes) full.
Tell him “thank you for his service” from me please!
My husband just returned home from a 13 month deployment. We got paid extra while he was gone..they don’t? I’m confused by that whole thing because usually you get family separation pay and hazardous duty pay..then there’s the per diem they get when they get home and so forth. I would think it’d make up for the money he wasn’t bringing in from his second job…but perhaps I’m wrong? Perhaps I’m wrong.
Count me in. This is awesome!
I am always astounded by the bravery of soldiers and their family. There is so much strength in making the choice to fight for your country. I am forever greatful.
Fantastic post! And nothing like makin’ someone else pull a dollar out of their pocket for a good cause.
god bless your brother and his family. i hope they all know how much we the people truly appreciate what they do. a while back i put a care package together http://www.anysoldier.com/
i think it is time to do another one !!
My husband and I were both in the Army and he was deployed for 6 months when our first child was 2 weeks old. It was hard, to say the least. I know what your family is going through and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Brother-in-Law, I’m praying for your safe and speedy return home!
I think this is wonderful. They will be in my prayers!
