There Will Be Rock Concerts In Heaven, Marie Antoinette



I received a phone call from my mom in Louisiana this morning that has laid heavy on our hearts all day. My first pet of my own, my little dog that I adopted my very first year of law school, that bore the name of my favorite historical French figure, Marie Antoinette, passed away today. 


I realize I never spoke about her much on the blog. She lived with my parents after our last move and remained with them when we moved to Boston. Her health was very poor and I did not think it fair to bring her on such a long road trip. 

Nettie loved her MeeMaw and PeePaw and she adored Military Husband at first sight (just like her mommy). She loved curling up with Military Husband.


She was #MaddiethePug's first friend in Louisiana and she quickly became Maddie's best friend. 


She loved eating poppy corn and having rock concerts with her Daddy (Fall Out Boy's Dance, Dance was one of her favorite songs). Military Husband would tell you she had great taste in music.

I am going to miss her so much, and I wish I could have been there with her when she crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She had my back in law school and was always there to protect me. I keep thinking about her and how she was such a big part of my life as a young woman.

We will miss you Nettie and never forget you.

Summer Vacation, Visiting My Family & Yes, I Missed Boston



I am back from Summer Vacation! We returned Sunday afternoon totally exhausted. If you were not aware, we drove from Boston, Mass on Saturday, June 24 to visit my family in Louisiana. Unfortunately, flying really is not an option with three pugs, so we did a road trip instead. It was actually a lot of fun and I like to think I keep Military Husband entertained.

Our first stop, Saturday evening, was Winchester, Virginia to spend the night in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. 

The majestic and beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

My Ratchet Life Lately: Boston Edition



Since I have not written on my blog in forever and a million years, I thought I would write a little about what I have been up to lately. 

Because really though, who does not want to know about my exciting life?

I mean it is all about ME here, people!


But truly, I digress.

Here is my My Ratchet Life Lately: Boston Edition.

Three Things Tag And What Is My REAL Name?



There is a tag going around the blogging world like a rampant horde of hungry zombies called "Three Things." See Erica's blog, Whimsical September and Julie's blog, Jewels Wandering.

I thought I would complete said tag because it means I get to talk about my favorite subject:


I know, I KNOW.

But, BUT, I will make it worth your while if you stick around to the very end because I am going to share a secret. A secret that will forever change this blog to infinity and beyond.

6 (MORE) Kinds Of Annoying People In The Grocery Store



A long, long, long time ago in my bloggerific career, I wrote a post titled:


It was all about people in the grocery store that suck monkey butt. Many of you shared my opinions of said individuals and several of you even laughed. And I got to thinking today, you know, there are more types of people in the grocery store that need to be addressed. Thus, this post was born in the mentally unhealthy mind of yours truly, Mili Wifey.

Yup, I am talking about myself in the third person AGAIN.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the biggest douchebag of all?

I'm not really a narcissist.
I just play one on this blog.

But truly, I digress.
