Hey i thought this would be fun and keep this group alive a bit!?

So add yours to the list!!

 

You know u are a coastie wife when:

-all your furniture never matches...unless matching includes all the dents and scratches the movers made!

- your children were not born in the same state

- 1/2 your t-shirts have some sort of coastie logo

-An Alaskan cruise or the beach in general is no longer a vacation spot.

-If you have had people say to you 'The Coast Guard is Military?"

- Your child refers to the boat or stations as "where Daddy lives"

- your "dark" load of laundry is all navy blue.

- More than half the mileage on your vehicles is from moving, not vacations.

- Your husband brings home guys un-announced and you have a bed already made up for them.

- When you've cooked Thanksgiving or spent it with "family" but no one is blood related.

- You're best friends all live in different states

your dh runs across the house, tripping over everything when he hears a commercial say "coast guard", so he can laugh at how unrealistic they are.

When the phone rings and big shock he haa been recalled.

When he calls and says he is on his way home and shows up 4 hours later.  Has happened many times to us.

you get upset when you go to a store and see fun military stuff and get frustrated because there is hardly any coast guard items

-people have told you that the cg is not the real military

-you know better than to book any kind of trip before leave has been 100% approved

-you know the date the boat is supposed to pull means total crap. lol
