Another week in the books!

A lot has happened in a week!

A crazy busy week at work started my Monday.

Tuesday was full of best time which was very much needed after 2 whole weeks without her!

Wednesday brought us home Superman! Our house is now full and normal once again. E of course expected a moving date when he got home so explaining that it's not until he comes home again was a slight disappointment but she knows some dates so she's good to go.

Thursday and Friday were work for me while Superman got to relearn how to be a civilian.

Swimming yesterday left E more golden brown then before (if that's even possible), myself a little pink and poor Superman has some serious burn going on. Guess that's what happens when you've only got an ACU tan to work with.  I did however brave a bikini for the first time since before E!

Today was out to my parents. Good family time, a little bit of sprinkles and the CUTEST 10 day old puppies! My aunt is foster mommy for them until they can be adopted out and I fell in love.

Headed to work in a few again and then home for a tuck in for E and Superman movie time. I love having him home again. I am once again complete.

Sunday slum it day.

It's after 4pm and E and I haven't let the house all day. She wins. She is sleeping right now which means I will have to wake her up in a few minutes to avoid her trying to pull an allnighter on a school night. There will be tears and whines I am sure.

Laundry has been defeated. If there is one thing in this world that I despise it is laundry. I will scrub bathrooms, clean kitchens and vacuum all day long as long as somebody else does the laundry.

I am ready for fall. I am praying to sweet baby Jesus that I at least get to go live in a state that has fall. I don't care about any of the other seasons but I love me some fall. It makes me happy.

I have a full work week this coming week. Bawb is out on vacation but at least my office mom is back. It will be a rough one with all of my inappropriate jokes going to waste because nobody will get them. Sad panda.

Off to wake E up and head to work for a bit. I hope everybody's weekends were great and that your Monday not suck as much as they usually do!

My drive into work today was a haze. I'm exhausted and as much as everybody is tired of hearing it I might say it a couple more times because I can and it's true.

I have always thought of myself as strong. I've been through a lot and even though my choices and decisions have been the ones to get me to the event, I am about as unlucky as it gets.  I don't mind being there for people and I'm not one to burn a bridge just because somebody has done me wrong. Maybe it's my own fault but sometimes it works out to my benefit because (especially me) you never know when you're going to need somebody. 

It's hard being the rock in everbodies life. I'm great at it, I listen well, I offer what I hope is helpful advice and I will be there whenever I can. The hard part is people taking it for granted. I take on a lot for the people I love so that they can be happy and hopefully I can lighten their burden a little. It makes me happy that I can do this for them and especially if they are going through a rough time I know that it's needed. But every once in a while I deserve a bad day, a sad day, or a mad day. Some times I want somebody to come up to me and tell me it's going to be ok, push their worries and conflicts to the side and let my emotions and difficulties be the only ones on the table for five minutes. Hug me, let me shed a few tears and not try and compete with how bad of a day they're having. I don't want to be the center of attention all the time, hell I don't even want to be it once a week, but when I do need it, I want the favor to be returned. Let me babble and cry and make no sense and get it all out. Then after my five minutes of fame I will be done and continue on. Please?

Ramble, blah, hiss,

Ok, maybe I am a little a slow, but so what?!

Hello lovelies!

Georgia was hot and humid and amazing. The flight down went smooth and the future father in law kept up pretty well. Had to wait until 11 on Thursday to see Superman but when I did I felt like a little kid at Christmas and fell in love all over again. Got to hang out for a bit on Thursday, then tried to sleep after dropping him back off at base. Friday was graduation and the beginning of four days with the man.

Most peoples vacations are full of grand adventures and awesome stories, mine was perfect because I got to enjoy the little things that I have been missing out on.  I got to grab his hand when we were walking, I got to see him smile, wake up next to him and burrow in for a good snuggle (because 6am GA time is 4am MT time and this girl was not excited about that) and I got to enjoy all of the other little amazing things that most people in relationships take for granted.

See you later sucked and my flights home were twatwaffles. Each one was delayed at least an hour for some reason or another and I spent 12hrs either in a plane or airport. Too long! I missed my booger something fierce and she missed me just as much. Tuesday was nothing but cuddles and naps and I love yous and some tears.

Now we are off on the adventures of falling out of airplanes and being super sneaky and of course it's all a huge bundle of chaos, but it's our chaos so I'm perfect with it all. We from now on will be writing in pencil and not planning a damn thing. There is no point because it's always getting changed and we keep getting our hopes up on when we get to see each other next.

I have a headache today, it's the first in at least a week and I got too used to not having them. Ugh.  I ate blueberries for breakfast and I'm not too sure I like them.

I miss my girls and need a girls night stat. It's going to be rough leaving them in a couple months :-(

Ok, back to work and catching everyone up from me being gone,

You could only get this from me...

I just spent a whole minute trying to open my new bottle of Captain. Huge thanks to a very wonderful nestie for sending it to me in a care package :-)

Reason for why I'm drinking tonight:

1. I have more motivation and desire to clean why house when I'm slightly buzzed. Why? I will never know but I can scrub floors and vacuum like a nesting preggo while on the Captian.

2. It's been a very long week. So long in fact that I'm already dreading Monday and it's still Friday.  I am ready for a vacation.

3. No Superman communication is eating at me. Hard. Need. Superman. Now!

4. My phone is pissing me off something fierce. Do not get a Droid. I hate mine with a passion. 2 more months and this beez is out!

5. Hopefully it will help me sleep some. Insomnia sucks and without a Superman shoulder this girl does not sleep more than 2 hrs straight. Sad panda.

Confession! On the 4th we were at Auntie Duh's house letting the girls swim in between the parade and firework show. Bff, Auntie Duh and I were sitting in the pergola talking and random me brings up my festive "firecracker" undies. Very cute VS undies that had "firecracker" written across the butt. So I decided that they needed to see them. So after checking to make sure grandpa was still in the house I lift up my dress and show them. Only to hear grandpa walking out the door, full view of my butt, saying "Too late". Muahahahaa! Good thing he loves me and knows I'm a weirdo!

Ok, E's in bed, the Captain is hitting and Im headed of to bleach some bathrooms, do some dishes and clean my room!

When she's happy and you know it...

Clap your hands!!!

I'm sorry folks but there is nothing better than a happy woman. Regardless of if it's me or one of my good friends. To be able to see her smile through a text and feel the energy from across the country is one of the sweetest things a person can experience.

It's finally raining here! With the entire state on fire it's about damn time. It's not a huge down pour that is needed but moisture at this point in the game is all that anyone could ask for. The smell is to die for!

Superman count down is getting so close I can feel it! Now if my damn Id would show. Like tomorrow. Everybody say a little pretty please for me.

Olive Garden is officially out of business, ok not yet because I need their bread sticks still, but I have managed to mimic their 5 cheese ziti! Woot woot!

I'm curious about my new/old neighbor. Old as in age and duration as he's been here since before me, new as in I think he finally retired and has been home for a week. Our back yards face and so do our picture windows so each night when everybody opens their houses it's full view of kitchen and living room. The first couple of days he was home he was doing odd things like moving his table and chairs different places in his kitchen and now he's back to normal things like reading and dishes. P.S. he has no tv, I think I might be slightly envious that he does not need the television.

That is all from nosy Nancy...peace,

04 JUL 12

We grew up knowing the day of parades and fireworks, tons of family and the summer heat. When we got into elementary school we learned that it is really Independence Day and all the history behind it.  Now I look back and remember all the chapters I had to read and quiz on about war and the fight for our freedom. I was never really a history buff and I did what I had to do to pass the class. 

I haven't been through a deployment with Superman, but I have with my little brother.  Living it first hand brings a lot of things to mind that I wished I would have taken the time to think about. Years ago some wonderful men gave up everything they had so that we could start this country and now today there are many wonderful men and women who uphold that love and dedication.  They kiss their spouses, hug their mothers and promise their kids that they will be home as soon as they can. As they hop a plane and head over seas to the sandbox they have in that instant gone into survival mode. It's no longer mowing the lawn and wrangling the kids, they fight for not only themselves but every one of us every second they are gone, while they miss every second of home. Care packages, skype dates and phone calls become their only life lines to the family and friends that they hold in their heart because they may be gone for a couple months or over a year. It's not easy on them. It's not easy on their family. They are the reason you can protest gays and stand up for women's rights, the reason you get to live where you want and decide how many children you want to raise and the reason you get to love whomever you desire. 

So tonight when you lay your head down and every night after this remember why you are so lucky. You are lucky in the life you live because someone is out there missing their family so you can have dinner, sleep next to and go on vacation with yours. Tomorrow when the veteran walks by with the flag and the Star Spangled Banner is blared across the speakers; stand up, put your hand over your heart and say a prayer and a thank you for every man and woman past, present and future that has made this country what it is.

I am thankful for every single one of them and now living the life of a Army fiance I understand the hard times, the struggle and the patience it takes to make the job he loves possible. I am so proud of my soldier and all that he will do.  It may not be easy every day, but it is definitely all worth it.

And remember that there are fire watches and firework bans for a reason! Do not be the reason another family loses a home or another farmer loses his crops and livestock! Be safe!

Love, strength and gratitude,

All over oreos and ice cream.

Happy Monday is over!

I am tired, exhausted if you will. Weekend was long and not the greatest I have ever experienced.

I lost my Id Friday which will result in me praying to the sweet baby DMV Jesus that my new one gets here in a week like they have in the past. I do not want to fight with TSA people and a paper Id. I really really don't and do you think this girl would have kept old ones? Oh hell no that would have been way to easy! Ugh.

Magic Mike sucked. Yes hot naked men dancing is great, but the movie was awful. End.

Im finally doing laundry because I don't think I have anything to wear to work tomorrow. Ok, really I do but it's something that I would have to accessorize and dress up and be cute in and honestly that is not sounding too appealing right now.

Tonight while doing dishes I realized just how excited I still get when the Dawn dish soap makes little bubbles if you tip and squeeze just right. It's like bubble wrap, I don't think one could ever lose the kid love for such a thing.

I have no patience waiting for Superman visitation (kinda makes him sound like an inmate). After he left the first couple weeks sucked while I dealt with my emotions and got into my groove. Things got easier to manage and then a couple weeks before I got to see him it was almost worse than when he left. Welcome to that lovely feeling again. I can't sleep, I cry at the drop of the hat, and every single thing reminds me of him. These next few days better hurry the crap up otherwise Im pretty sure everybody in my life is going to disown me and shitty attitude.

Aren't I just a rainbow fart tonight?


My birfday!

Today is the day I made my escape.

I have already noticed:

My hair is revolting.
I’m tired and ready for bed and it’s only 1100.
My ass was a little more saggy than usual.
The bags under my eyes have darkened.
4 year olds do not care that it is your birthday and will revolt and throw a tantrum before getting ready for school.
Cheesecake is all your really need.
Clients must have a feeler that it’s supposed to be a good day because they have been pretty normal.
