Jane’s cup of Joe: Fiscal cliff and long distance relationships

February 16, 2013

Blogging, Military Life

Welcome back to another episode of “Jane’s cup of Joe”!

If you haven’t heard about this yet, I have talked four of my most-favorite-funny-women-on-the-planet to join me on friday mornings for a brand new talk show called “Jane’s cup o’Joe”. All of us are military wives at different stages of marriage, motherhood, and life – each with a unique sense of humor and a wealth of experiences to share.

One of the things that really helped me as a brand new wife, military spouse, and eventually mom, was to tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience around me in the form of seasoned military spouses. Folks who had been there, done there, bought the T-shirt!

This week we talked about the looming fiscal cliff, the carnival cruise gone wrong, and a viral newborn photo shoot for an adopted 13 year old.  Also, one of our hostesses had a big surprise from her daughter on Valentine’s Day – a texted picture of an engagement ring!

The second half of our show was spent talking about how to maintain long distance relationships during short separations or marathon deployments.  Open lines of communication seemed to be the best lesson learned and encouraged by all of us.

Find out WHO has a daughter engaged and learn about long distance relationships by watching this week’s episode!
