Day 1.. again.

Current Relationship

Signed the certificate on July 22, 2005, even though it says July 23, 2005.
We didn't have a real wedding. We were engaged, talked about getting married. So that Friday we decided, why not? And went and picked up the marriage certificate. Our friend CJ went online and became an ordained minister. That evening it was signed. So this year will be year number 7. Can't believe we're now well on our way to hitting that 10 year mark!

I love him. I miss him. I can't wait to have my husband back home where he belongs. =o)

Five Question Friday!

1. What do you do when you are really upset to calm yourself down?
~ Cry, play music, write, drive.. all just depends on how upset I am and why I'm upset.

2. Do you go all out for V-day or is it just another day?
~ It's pretty much just another day for us. He'll get me some flowers or chocolates and I just try to cook him a nice dinner and make it a pleasant evening.

3. Are you more or less productive when Hubs is away?
~ Usually I'm more productive, although this time I appear to be less productive. Being sick for nearly 3/4 weeks hasn't really helped either!

4. What is your favorite time of day and why?
~ My me time starts at 8 pm after I put the kids to bed. I usually talk with a friend, catch up on stuff on the DVR, do some housework, read.. whatever I feel like doing!

5. What is your go to karaoke song?
~ Bring On The Rain by Martina Mcbride =o)

Day 30

A picture of yourself this day and 5 good things that happened since you started the challenge

This was actually taken Friday, still less than a week ago.

5 good things. Let's see.

1. I'm blogging way more than I was before.
2. Learned a little more about myself.
3. Pretty much sucked at keeping up with anything with almost daily repetition before this. There was a short week where I was not feeling like talking or anything, so I didn't blog.
Running out of ideas..
4. I got our tax return.. that's a good thing, right?
5. I'm writing more, here, letters to my husband, helping my daughter.. It makes me happy.

Day 29

3 Wishes

1. I wish my husband will call tonight. It's Valentine's they should be able to call their ladies.. plus it's been over a week since I talked to him.
2. I wish my mom can come out for my birthday next month. I miss her, and if I can't celebrate with my honey, I'd wanna celebrate with her.
3. I wish for the clening fairy to come and get my house ready for spring...

Day 28

Something that stresses you out.

Uncertainty or lack of control. Not necessarily because I'm a control freak either. I just don't like if I don't know what is to come. For instance, I haven't talked to my husband for a week, which I'm fine with. What I'm not fine with is not knowing if he went to the doctor or what is going on with his rib. Last I heard from him, all he told me is his ribs were bothering him after he fell and he's worried they'll push back his graduation date.
I want to start planning for his basic graduation and can't because I'm not sure if he's still injured. I hate this feeling.

Bug vs windshield effect

I've been in a bit of funk of sorts lately. I've just been trying to stay outside the house as much as possible the last week, haven't done the daily blog, and I've been a little anti-social.
I'm trying my hardest to cope after feeling like complete crap for nearly 3 weeks. Being sick is no fun, then being sick and having allergies that cause an asthma attack is pure hell. I have no idea why, but having my husband gone this time has been worse than any other time. Deployment was cake next to this, but we were also able to talk almost everyday when he was deployed. His letters are being delayed when they send them out, but he's getting mine right on time. The jackass kids in his platoon keep losing privileges for everyone, so they keep losing their Sunday phone privileges. Last time we talked on the phone he told me he got hurt and isn't sure if he'll be able to graduate on time. He said if that's the case, his graduation will most likely be postponed a month or month and a half. So I'm putting my plans to see him for graduation on hold until we know more. The uncertainty of it is bringing me down. I'm hoping they got him in to see a doctor this week so I should know more the next time he's able to call.
Things between us haven't exactly been all that great since he got back from Afghanistan in 2010. He admitted to it in his first letter. I've read that letter everyday since I got it. It just hasn't been the same since he left either. I've done dishes, laundry, and all the everyday stuff while he's been gone, but everything else is almost exactly how he left it. I'd really like to get started on my Spring cleaning, but I just have no desire to at all. So now I'm living in the chaos. Part of the reason why I haven't started is because this is the first week when I've actually felt somewhat decent. Before if I started doing stuff, I'd start hacking and coughing until my chest hurt. So, this week, I'll pull myself out of this funk this week and get things taken care of properly.

Your dream wedding.

My dream wedding...

I don't really have one. We never got married and I doubt we'll ever have any kind of vow renewal or anything. I thought we were going to once but we didn't have the money for what we wanted to do.

Day 24

Something you've learned

Recently? Kind of who my true friends are. I've tried to surround myself with people that are good for me, positive people.

I've learned patience truly is a virtue. Im trying to be patient with my daughters and everyday life. I'm trying to be patient every week when I wait to hear from the husband.

5 Question Friday

1. What have you done recently that you are proud of?
Recently? Hmm.. Honestly I'm not sure. Maybe I'm just being totally pessimistic right now. I have no idea. I'll get back to you on that one...

2. What is your favorite way to work out? Or if you don't workout, what are you wanting to try?
My favorite way to work out.. playing a sport. Softball or volleyball were my favorites!! Since that isn't exactly easy to do as an adult, I want to do TurboFire as soon as I'm back to 100% health.

3. If you knew you best friend was cheating on spouse would you tell?
Probably not. Not up to me. But it would definitely put a strain on things. Especially considering my best friend is like my sister and her husband is a good friend of ours.

4. If you could afford a live-in maid or nanny, would you have one?
A maid yes, WITHOUT a doubt! Nanny, no.. I need to be my children's mother. But a maid, I can be a good wife without having to clean allllll day haha.

5. Do you stress out about birthdays (specifically the age) or do you enjoy them?
I don't stress about my own birthdays at all. I just try to enjoy them because it could be my last =o) I do stress about my children's birthdays though. Mostly just planning them. Then as it gets closer I get excited. Day of I get really excited. I love how excited they get over stuff like that!

Day 23

Favorite Movie

Step Brothers. I know almost every line.

Day 22

What's in your purse?

My black Steelers purse? What's in there.. hmmm... the last, few remaining gift cards from Christmas, lip gloss, notepad, pens, receipts, and a few cards. Like Subway, zoo membership, stuff like that.

Interesting because I don't really carry a purse much any more. Erin is growing, so if I need to bring diapers, I usually just keep some in the car with some wipes. No more diaper bag! I have all my important stuff in a little wallet I carry in my back pocket.

Day 21

Favorite Picture of yourself ALL TIME Why?

This was the day we brought Shannon home from the hospital. I was exhausted, and guests didn't start to arrive yet. So baby Nanner and I snuck in a nap. The husband snuck in a picture. And I'm glad he did, it's one of my very favorites to this day. <3 my babies!
