Ok, Time To Blog


It’s been a hard couple of weeks. Just too much stress and yuck to deal with. I found myself not wanting to blog, so I didn’t.

Sometimes I just don’t know what to say or how to put what I am feeling into words.

We made it through Halloween, which ended up being a lot of fun. Now we are into November and it just isn’t moving fast enough for me.

Someone stole my debit card # which makes me angry. Luckily we were able to catch it before too much damage was done.

As I sit here I am anxious for some bit of news about when this deployment is going to be over. Something I can hang onto. I have been this way for a month and it sucks. I know I should just not worry about it. We will find out eventually and even if we did find out now, that date would change.

I look out my window and I see all signs of fall. Leaves everywhere, different colors, windy days. I love fall and trying to enjoy it.

At the same time I just want to snuggle up with a cup of coffee and a good book and do nothing else until my husband returns.

My boys keep me busy. This week is a shorter week for them. No school on Friday which is kinda nice. Maybe they will actually sleep in tomorrow? Probably not but one can dream.

My “baby” will be three in just 10 days. I don’t want to have a party for him. I think we will just invite a couple of friends over for cake.

Thinking about Christmas. Not sure what it will be like for us this year. I think it would be nice if we had a white Christmas. Not super likely but a lot more possible than when I lived in California. And my only white Christmas was in Clarksville.

As much as I am SO happy to be done with Army life next year I am nervous about our future and what is to come. I know in my heart it will all work out even if we don’t know how quite yet.

School is going okay for the boys. They each struggle with different parts of school. They are two very different boys. Some days are better than others.

My oldest bought Disney Infinity with his birthday money and all the boys love it. They can’t wait to play with Daddy when he gets home.

I started the Nanowrimo challenge. Write 50,000 words in one month. I am almost to 12K so I am right on track. I hope I can keep it up.

As we go into the weekend I am trying to stay positive, to remember to be thankful and to see that we have already made it 150+ days, we can make it a few more.

What are your plans for the weekend?
