Monday: Pick-Me-Up

Hubby and I went to see "Green Lantern" on Friday, his favorite comic book character... we loved the movie. It's different than the comic books, but what Marvel/DC movie has actually followed along completely? The comics are too vast, with many branching story lines. Supposedly DC will be re-launching "The Green Lantern" this fall with issue #1, I assume to go along with the movie's plot.

One of my favorite lines (may not be exact words):

"My new job requires me to travel and be away. Away, not gone."

Pretty neat quote for all of us connected to the military.

Did any of you see the movie this weekend?

Also, don't forget that I'm still taking questions!


  1. I have been wanting to go see this, glad you guys liked it!

  2. Hi, I am a military wife, and I found your blog looking for info. about being stationed in Hawaii. My husband has been in the Marine Corps for 8 years now, and we are currently finishing our first year of recruiting duty in IL. It is pretty much torture so we are already researching new bases to go to after he's finished. I have read back a few posts. Did I read correctly that you have cousins that live in Ventura, Ca and that is where you were proposed to? I have cousins that live in Ventura, Ca, and my husband and I got married on the beach there at sunset! Anyway, sorry to write a book of a comment. I like your blog!

  3. Amy... I wish you had your reply-to e-mail set up. I hear that recruiting duty is TERRIBLE, long hours, no time together, etc. My husband did a 4mo co-recruiter stint while we were dating... he said never again. I love Hawaii, I also love the ocean and being on an island hasn't affected me yet. We are definitely further away from people and the only option is plane for travel. Yes my cousins live in Ventura and that is where he proposed (right by the pier).


I love hearing from you all! =)
