Moving Woes

It's been awhile since I last wrote and so much has happened since then. The hubby came home, my sister got married, and we've decided I'm going to move 4 months ahead of my husband so that we can save money and start looking for a new place to live.

Don't get me wrong. I'm ready to move. But I'm really not ready to go. I don't know if its the right choice for me to leave now, but I don't know if its the right choice for me to stay here and not save up either. Neither of us will have a job when we get to where we're going, we're going to need a down payment plus pet deposits for an apartment or town house. And several other major things. I'm stressed beyond normalcy and I'm ready for it to just be done with. I don't want to leave my house without my husband by my side. I'm going to miss him, my house, and everyone here in general.  Not to mention I have to get the pups ready to fly (getting shots and such), have a moving sale (as we wont be leaving with half as much as we have), set a move out/pick up belongings date, and just spend time with the hubs. This is going to be a rough next 6 weeks. :(

I'm bored. I'm being lazy. I'm tired. I'm ready for him to be home already, dammit. But at least I have a busy month ahead of me. Lot's of babysitting, I've made our car rental reservation (which was super cheap considering!!) and I've been looking into the space a program and their flights. I hope we don't get passed up b/c some higher up wants to use it too. Guess we'll have to wait and see! But at least flights aren't that expensive if we were to have to buy them :) I'm ready to go home and see everyone. Especially the bestest Heather. So soon!!! And to go to Florida with her and hopefully her hubs too :) We shall see. I got her something today, and it'll be arriving in her mail in a few weeks :) She's gonna die when she see's it and I'm not telling what it is :) Ok... Time to go play Gardens of Time on FB. I'm completely addicted to it

The Last Little Bit

So, it's the last little bit or so before the hubbers comes home :) And I've got plenty to do to get ready for him! Well, more so his family and getting ready for his leave and us going to TENNESSEE than him actually coming home. Haha. For him it's just a matter of cleaning the house like it hasn't been cleaned before, i.e. in every nook and cranny that is in this small but large house. And possibly buying some new things to decorate/make the house more homey. Although, it's pretty homey already. Then, his mother and sister are coming for a week after he gets back. Which should be interestingly fun. Then, we leave to go on post deployment leave! So super stoked. So to keep me busy while I anxiously await all this fun stuff to happen I have a few days of babysitting, helping Lauren out w/ her medical stuff, and not much else. I seriously hope I babysit more than I'm actually scheduled to sit for. Three days. That's it. I need more! Hah. Anyways, its 12:33am and I can't sleep so I'm playing Gardens of Time on facebook and am actually enjoying it a lot. It's kinda like an eye spy game. Love those types of games!! :) I'm seriously addicted to this game though! :) Oh well! I'm gonna go play it some more haha

I've put off writing for awhile now and thought I'd put my thoughts down finally.

I've been babysitting every night for the past week and a half. Thankfully Sunday night is my last. I miss having my nights with Lauren, Liam, and myself doing nothing. And going to the beach in the morning, I've been too tired lately. And working out and doing Insanity. I've been slacking in that department and have therefore put the 5lbs I lost back on in 1 month. :-/ Oh well. It happens. However, I WILL lose at least 20lbs before the hubbers comes home. It's not that I need to, I just want to be what I was when we married. The skinnier me. Meh, we will be there soon.

I've been debating on deleting my facebook for the past few days as well. I'm tired of all the drama it makes available. The want to look at something and then tell someone else because it was on facebook. Nobody says they found something out from so in so anymore. They say that they found it out on facebook. I don't need that. Everyone I know and love and truly care about have my phone number and can reach me there. I miss when that's how people found out how you were doing. They actually talked to you over the phone or in person. Not over the internet where it becomes so impersonal. I miss the people connection. We will see what happens though. I may just keep it because it's interesting to see what others are doing even if I don't talk to them anymore.

On another note, the house is slowly getting fixed from all of the problems I've been having. The dishwasher finally got fixed last week and the wall got repainted since it wasn't mildewing where the water leaked through the wall. And, the wall the dogs ate has finally been filled and re-textured. Now I can re-paint the wall green to make it look like it never happened. :) Yay!! Then, after that... That's it! All of the filters have been replaced and are up to date, the stove trays under the coils are new, and the lights have been replaced in the ones that have gone out. Ugh, I'm just ready for him to get home already! My house feels so empty without him here. But soon!!

And, then.... WE'RE GOING TO TENNESSEE!!!!!! I love leave.. :) And that I FINALLY get to see my bestest friend!! And as a side note, Jon gets to see his bestest friend.. Haha jk. We're both super excited to finally see our other halves :) And see how they are doing since we'll hopefully be following in their footsteps in a year!! :) Well, a little less than a year but we'll see! But for now, I'll leave you with a pic of me and the bestest and one hell of a view behind us :)

Sad Goodbyes and Good Tidings

Today I said goodbye to a new friend. A Mrs. Greene. Her hubs is in a different battalion that's about to deploy from out here and she came to spend her hubs' pre-deployment out here with him. It was awesome getting to know her and getting to spend all that time with them. It made my last 3 weeks pass by so much more quickly than they would have. But, he's leaving soon and she left to go home today and it was a sad day for her. I know she cried quite a little bit and then cried a lot more. I feel so bad, I don't have any real words of encouragement. Just that it'll go by faster than she thinks and to keep as busy as possible. I haven't had much in encouragement just my wonderful friends to lean on and keep me busy so that I'm not always thinking about him being gone. But, I know she's strong and that she can do it.

My little sister is now getting married in September of this year. Quite a little jump in the last 2 weeks from everything that's going on. But I wish them the best and I hope things only get better as life progresses for them :) I've also gotten the hubs homecoming window information!! And let me just say that I'm so stinking excited I can't wait for him to be home and for me to wrap my arms around him! And I'm so ready to go to Tennessee and see Mr and Mrs B :) I misses them so much!!

Tangled and a Recant... Maybe. :)

Tangled came out on dvd on tuesday!!! So, I bought it today :) And I'm watching it w/ Mrs. Greene. It's such a good and cute movie!! I'm so happy I bought it. Now I can make the hubs watch it when he comes home!! And in other news, the little sister has decided to stay w/ her dude for now and try to work things out. Ugh. I'd wish she'd make up her mind since she changed it like 4 times in an hour and half today. I only wish the best for her and I hope they figure out what is best for them. :) I'm just wanting them to be happy if they stay together and not be mad at each other all the time. :) <3

Spring Break and a Break Up

This last week was my little sister's spring break from college and she and her friend, Liana, came to see me for the week. :) It was so much fun! And so awesome to have the break from everything going on. It rained and was very dreary for most of their stay but we still had plenty of fun. We had a girls night the second night they were here and we played Cranium. Absolutely love that game!! Then we tried to go to the beach on wednesday, not so lucky at that. Frieday night we went to PF Chang's and then on the Moose's McGillyCuddy's. That was a lot of fun!! Saturday was an off and lazy, sleeping all day kind of day. Sunday was the beach at the Lagoon's in Ko'Olina and then a Luau, followed by drinks and packing. It was a short lived week but it was definitely needed. I miss my family. :)

In other news, Jonathan is doing well!! And not really doing much. :) His packages are still taking FOREVER to be delivered to him since they only get a mail drop like twice a month. Ugh. Whatever. My little sister is breaking up with her fiance. Which really sucks for the heartbreak and heartache that this is going to cause. But I can't say that I'm really that upset about it. He just wasn't the right man for her. I'm glad she's realized this before it becomes a marriage and a divorce. I just hate that she has to go through that right now. I'm hoping that she'll look at it for the better, and since she's the one doing the acting here, I think she'll be better for it.

Now to finally start again on the school work. :) I will finish before he comes home!!! Maybe. :)
