.... but not bye bye to blogging!
NavyGuy has finally prevailed on me to move away from Blogger. He's been working furiously to relocate MarryingtheNavy to Wordpress instead. (Which is better for his techie-ness, and gives me more options in the blogosphere.)
If you follow me on a feed reader (such as Google Reader), you will need to update your subscription. On Tuesday, go to MarryingtheNavy.com (that URL will take you to the new site no problems), and re-subscribe to the feed. You'll know you've correctly subscribed to the new feed if you do NOT see this post at the new site. Instead, you'll see a welcome post, and all my previous ramblings (oh yes, the archives are moving with me).
If you simply have MarryingtheNavy.com bookmarked, you should be fine. If you are still using MarryingtheNavy.blogspot.com, you will need to bookmark the new site (as Blogger will not transfer you over).
Got all that? Really not as complex as I've made it out to be - basically, just keep checking in at MarryingtheNavy.com, and you'll be with us. Hopefully there won't be too many bugs or glitches with the changeover happening tonight. NavyGuy should have all the technical difficulties under control.
Can't wait to hear what you think about the new blog design and some of the fun new things coming... :)

As a bribe / morale booster, the skipper gave NavyGuy's command Friday and Monday off. Which is excellent, because it means we can institute spring cleaning a few weeks early!
NavyGuy is thrilled.
Nope, that's not the word, but we'll go with it.
I am PUMPED! Friday is garage day. We're going to Lowe's to get shelving, so we can stop storing everything on the extra swivel stools stashed in the garage. NavyGuy doesn't know it yet, but I'm also going to find something to bet him over, and when he inevitably loses the bet, he'll have to mow the lawn (which has gotten way out of hand and makes our house look like it should have broken down cars and empty Blatz cans scattered about the grass).
We're also planning to get a medicine cabinet for the master bathroom (because I'm sick of digging through the Xerox paper box in the office to find bandaids or cold medicine). If there's time, the oven needs a good cleaning.
What spring cleaning task would you love to tackle? (or pay someone to deal with while you sit comfortably with a cool drink...)
Alternative Title: Entertainment until I get a chance to post something real...
Was made aware of this yesterday by one of the Navy wives. As I learned after trying to make NavyGuy watch it, it won't nearly as funny if you haven't seen Mean Girls.

NavyGuy's deployment has been delayed until May-ish.
Rumors started on Saturday, but we got confirmation today.
On the one hand...
- he won't leave for almost two more months
- he'll be around for his and my birthday
- we'll probably get to bring Tally home from the trainer together
On the other...
- everyone was physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared for the separation, and now, we'll have to go through the process all over again
- backing up the leave date means backing up the return date... so now we're bumping into Thanksgiving and possibly Christmas
Bottom line, there's nothing to be done about it - it's not like the Pentagon called for my opinion.
Ah, the needs of the Navy...

NavyGuy was able to check on Tally on Saturday - she's doing GREAT! He watched her do some work with the trainer, and then got to play with her for a bit. Basically, she's kickin' ass. Tally is doing fabulous for her age, and is still a little peanut (she'll look big in the first photos, but check out the relative size in the last photo). She's eating well, making friends, has clean ears and teeth, and is still our little squeaker pup :)
I'm ready guys! I'm ready! Let me run! I wanna run!
Bringing back a bird.
Finally in the water! Apparently, she still isn't a huge fan, but can you blame her? It's still freezing cold!
Awww... spending some quality play time with her papa.
Here's Tally in the front middle (her pink collar has faded drastically). The yellow lab in front of her... is 13 weeks... Tally is 6 months!
Only a few more months to go until Tally comes home!
