Im going to keep this short and sweet today, cause Im so tired. We had our Company Change of Command and it went pretty good. I am still sore from standing at parade rest for almost 45 minutes. Im really hoping to be able to work done on my cards this weekend. Once I get rolling again, maybe Ill write about the steps I went through to actually create them.

Another Boring Day

So today was another one of those days, when you wonder why you even bother to roll outta bed in the morning, cause you got absolutely nothing done. First, of course, there was PT which wasn't too bad. Then there was the standing for 3 and a half hours for a change of command rehearsal. It wouldn't have been so bad, if we actually practiced a lot, but we only did it 3 times, for a 20 min program. The up side is that I got my request for a deferral turned into retention so that it can get sent up higher. Along with that I got some of the items turned in that I needed to turn in so that I can get out of here when the time comes.
While I have all of the Minors for my Tarot Deck printed out, I have yet to do anything to them. Between work, housework, school work, and the little bit of sleep that I DO get, I just haven't been feeling it, and don't want to have that energy transferred into the cards. I want to make sure that I am in the right mind set physically and emotionally, and recently I have just been feeling drained. Maybe this weekend I can catch up on the house and school work, and Ill feel more up to getting them done.

As I begin to get further along on little tarot project, I felt it appropriate to begin writing about it. And I figured why not put it out there for all to see.
First let me being with a little introduction of myself. My name is Jamie and I am 28 years old. If I could only use one word phrases to describe myself, they would be, Mother, Wife, Soldier, Wiccan, Student, Daughter. Yes you read that correctly. I am in the Army, and I am a Wiccan. My son is the most important thing to me, and is just above my husband (maybe tied). They are the reason why I do the things that I do. Yes I am a Soldier and yes I have been deployed (twice). That's all that I would care to discuss about that at this juncture.
So on to how my tarot project came to be. I was looking around one of the many message boards that I frequent, and was looking at all the different themed decks that everyone had. I had kinda jokingly mentioned how it would be funny if there was an Army themed deck. Little did I know that shortly after that, I would get a big slap to the face and the inspiration to work on a write up for what all the decks would be. Next thing I know, I'm actually working on designing cards, and trying to get just the right pictures for them. And now a month and a half later, they are just about done. Some of them have even been printed out. I am actually quiet proud of the way they are turning out. I have had some help and encouragement along the way, and am truly thankful for that. If you get the time, I hope you will take a look at how they are looking so far, and let me know what you think. Check out
Until next time, Blessed Be
