It Can Be Hard To Set Smart Goals

Did you set a big goal this New Years? You were going to get it done in 2018. How many times in the past have you set a huge goal such as to lose 50 pounds or exercise 5 days a week, only to fall off the wagon a few weeks (or usually days) later? Why did you fail? A...

Mind Over Matter!

Mind over matter!  I find myself clinging to that mantra a lot as a FireWife.  Especially with the history my firefighter husband and I endured.  The past can never truly be buried deep enough.  It always seems to nudge it's way through my thoughts as I go about my...

Wait, you BOTH work shift work?

A little over 2 years ago, I got this crazy idea to apply for a different type of job than I had previously been working.  For years, I worked at the local community hospital as an ED nurse on an "as needed" basis.  As our children got a little older, I started...

Laundry Basket Fortress

It's a never ending cycle. Wash. Dry. Throw it in a basket. Maybe take it upstairs. If you're lucky you have a main floor laundry. Sometimes you have to scramble 2 minutes before needing to leave to find the matching sock for the three year old and oh wait..the baby...

Are you in need of a place to talk to other wives in the firelife?

We all need support as we go through this journey. Some days are easier than others. Wildland, volunteer, paid or all the above, it doesn’t matter. There’s another wife in the group going through a similar schedule.

Our community is unique for a few reasons, one being it’s for wives only. Sometimes I take a little flack for that, but honestly I stopped caring when girls got mad at me for not including them. There are plenty of groups out there for every woman in the firelife. There are NO groups that I know of for wives only. Our issues are unique and not the same as girlfriends.

The community is by admin approval (meaning me). Click to request to join and then I will message you. Facebook doesn’t give me another option to contact you, so please keep an eye on your OTHER folder if you don’t hear from me within 48 hours. I contact everyone.

Another reason our group is unique? We are honest, inappropriate, snarky and real. If you are looking for real advice on an issue, you will get it. Quite a few versions usually because everyone brings their unique story to the group.
