The Mind of Bluesleepy

About 4 May 2007

Welcome to my diary! I am a stay-at-home mother of two daughters and the wife of a Navy sailor, which becomes hugely obvious from the moment you start reading. I am also trying my damnedest not to lose my self in the world of mommyhood and wifehood. I am a mother, yes, but I am first and foremost myself. That’s not to say I don’t love being a wife and mother. I just don’t want to be defined by those roles.

My husband and I are currently residing in Rhode Island. I am originally from Virginia, as much as a Navy brat can be from anywhere. Yes, that’s right. I am a Navy brat. Apparently I couldn’t get enough of the Navy as a child, so I had to marry a sailor. It’s funny how those things work out.

I really have enjoyed living in New England the last three years or so, and will miss it terribly when we relocate to Virginia soon, especially since I will be going back to an area very familiar to me.  Then again, at least I will know the area once we move, and I already have friends there.

In my personal life, I have a father, I have a stepmother (whom I usually refer to as my mother), and I have two siblings. My sister Michele is four years older than me, and my brother Mark is ten years younger. They all live on the East Coast.

I love to read. I read obsessively. I read every night before bed so that I can fall asleep. For the last year or two, I have been into historical fiction. When I was in high school and college, I was all about science fiction. When I was a kid, I loved the Laura Ingalls Wilder series. I guess my tastes are rather cyclical.

Lately I’ve been getting into photography. I take tons of photos of my daughters, as well as my cats (when they sit still long enough). I much prefer to take photos of things other than people or animals, however. Check out my Flickr link if you’re interested.

    Hello! I’m setting up shop here (moving from D’Land) and found you while Googling how to move my archives to the new place. Anyway, I live in RI, so let me be among the first to welcome you and your family to the Ocean State!

    Hi! Mt name is Colleen and a friend of mine from Navy gave me this address to contact you. My husband Paul left for boot camp on 10/9 and I have questions about insurance, etc. Could you help me? I grew up in a Military town but have never lived the Military lifestyle. I am excited about our adventure, and meeting new people along the way. My email address is I would love to hear from you and possibly have some questions answered from one wife to another. 🙂 Thank you again and take care.
