Life Lessons of a Military Wife (overseas in Europe!)

My goal here is to make your life easier, especially those who are in the unique situation of being a military spouse. Yes...I've been around...but in a good way...and hopefully can share those tips, tricks and shortcuts with you too. I've been on this military bus for over 40 years now. My goals in life are to have a well-run home, few money worries, well adjusted children, money socked away and whatever happiness I can scoop out of life.

After life as an Army brat, being in the Army myself and marrying a soldier, I can honestly say I have a bucket full of life lessons I can share to help you make your everyday life easier and enlightening. Don't waste your time making unnecessary mistakes and benefit from others who have come before you on your journey through life.

Sometimes, I don't like it when they are so smart....

I still remember when my then 7 year old showed me he was smarter than me....humbling is an inappropriate word.  Anyway, I thought I was pretty computer savvy, and he again pulled one over on me.  You know how the schools have site blocking software on all their computers?  For the most part, most kids don't seem to mess with it, but I guess there are always a few that don't leave things alone.  I'm guessing my son is one of them but with good intentions only.  My son ended up being able to access most of the sites he access at home....which is why I let this one go....he tells me he checks email and does his stories on Fan Fiction....but I still let him know I am watching him!  Here's how to access your favorite sites when you really need to.

Amazingly enough, most of these site blocking software packages do not take into account the mobile version of the website.  So, if you want to check your mail at Yahoo or Hotmail, and your work or school computer won't let you visit those sites, type in the mobile version of it (find the link on the homepage of your favorite site) or type in "m" or "mobile" after the "www" on the address.

No, I'm not telling you to do something dumb, immoral or illegal or go to sites you probably shouldn't go to or use up your employer's time....or your schoolwork time (please ask mom or dad first)....just sharing a little something to make you...hopefully...more productive in the long run!

That's a 'good' one! NEVER thought of that.

I am sure my kids already know about this one, but now that I know about it, I will go ahead and "test" them...:-)

Thanks for sharing this one!
