Our Move to Long Island

I haven’t been blogging for quite a while because things have been crazy!

Mr. Rockefeller graduated from the academy on August 25th. Since then, he’s been doing his dream job in our area, but we knew that a move was inevitable. We loved being near both of our families and we didn’t want to move, but we want to follow God’s plan for our lives, so we decided to take the move on with a positive attitude. Mr. Rockefeller has to work wherever there are openings, which means Long Island for a couple of years.

We didn’t know where or when we would be moving for sure until the beginning of November and it turned out that we needed to be moved to Long Island by November 30th! Actually, we’ve been living here for a week and there’s a small possibility that we could get a different location on December 20th and have to move again! (We’d love a location closer to home, but another move would be crazy all over again.) Continue reading

5 Tips to Reduce Arguing

I am a super laid back person. Not much bothers me. I don’t get angry about much. If I am angry at you, you must have done something really terrible to me!

I know that not everyone is like me. Other people get annoyed easily and find it difficult to control their tempers.

A Female Who Is Not A Feminist

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Please do not assume that I am a feminist because I am a woman. I am not. At least not a feminist in today’s society.

Most people respond to this, saying something like “You don’t believe in equal rights for women? Because that’s all feminism is.” First of all, it seems to be a lot more than that. There’s a stereotype put on feminists that I do not want to be associated with. And second of all, I am happy with equal right for women, but I really don’t advocate for more rights or fight for them in any way; so no, I am not a feminist. I know a lot of people think it’s crazy, but I’m OK with where women’s rights are in our country right now. Continue reading

10 Things I Do to Stay Busy While My Hubby is Gone

Mr. Rockefeller is away from Sunday evening until Friday afternoon every week while he is in the academy he’s attending. He also can’t have his phone until the people in charge decide that he gets the privilege (It’s been 11 weeks so far… come on people, it’s been long enough). So, while I’m at home, I’m staying busy so that the weeks go by quickly and so I don’t get lonely. So, here are some of the things that I do to keep me busy: Continue reading

Not Everyone Experiences Marriage the Way You Do

Before I got married, I can’t tell you how many people told me not to get married. (…After writing that, I realize that many of you may be thinking “jeez, maybe you made a mistake if that many people thought it was a bad idea!” But no.) These people were often strangers or acquaintances. People told me not to get married before I even met my husband.

I am completely amazed at how many people feel that marriage is so terrible that they would tell another person not to get married. I am so sad for those people because they must be/have been so miserable. I really hope that I never get to the point that I feel that the entire institution of marriage is a bad idea. Because it’s not. It is a beautiful thing, to vow to stick with someone forever and to work together through this difficult life. Continue reading
