     Is my little big brothers birthday. I call him my little big brother because while he is younger he is taller by at least 5 inches, and he out weighs me. Anyway, Today...Is Tuesday,Today is just like any other day.  Today is the day i get serious about packing for our upcoming move.
    I really would have liked to just have the movers come and take all our crap but no no no, we have to do it ourselves. Sometimes i really hate that i am a control freak and i just can't let other people do things for me. Well, since i made my bed i am going to sleep in it, I am so glad i am not a hoarder, we don't have any Nick knacks and we have only a few decorations. Now that i think about it my House is very plain and boring. I like to think that our colorful personalities add a little something to it.
I feel like im rambling on now so my dear dear readers have a fabulous day where ever you happen to be!

I'm a collector

I have come to the realization with lots of unwanted help from my dear dear hubby that I am a collector of hobbies. I think I have creative ADD, I see something that I would really like to do like making a quilt, making ribbons for my daughters hair, crocheting, painting. My hubby has fully supported and funded all of my crafty endeavors, he bought me a very expensive sewing machine that has been used all of 5 times....sorry babe.he bought me yards and yards of ribbon and only a few yards actually got used.
All of those hobbies I have given up except for crochet, I still make things like hats and blankets for family and my kids. See I think my problem is I get so excited to do something and I build it up in my head (I do that with a lot of things lol) and when I finally get it it's really not that great. My hubby has found a way to end the cycle and its a very simple solution. When I ask for money to buy supplies he simply tells me No. I hate it but it helps my creative add, anyone else suffer this awful ailment? I know I can't be alone....Maybe I am hahaha

And it begins...

We, well when I say we I mean Me. I have started packing up our house for the second cross country move in 2 years. My 2 year old daughter has already lived in 3 different states...kinda sad some say. I would like to think of it as an adventure. Ok I'm getting off track, get back on track find your original train of thought.........ok I found it.
I have started packing up our things, like our DVD collection, books and photographs and other small things that don't get used on a daily basisnor at all, for example our scale lol
But as I was walking around this morning and our house seems so empty already.
I am so thankful to get out of this house that is so far away from everyone and everything that I know and get back to at least the same coast as my family. But I must say I am saddened a bit, I have made some good friends,I love that it is so green here. The show must go on right, I mean this is what we do we pack up and go where ever the military needs us. I think as long as we try to stay positive about it it won't get us down.
Anyways more on the drama that is my life later....

I refuse to do it, im done...

     I am so so done trying to be nice to everybody and trying to make everyone happy.
In my quest to make everyone happy all i have done is make myself unhappy, hairless, and tired. So, hairless you ask, how is this possible? Well let me explain, when I get stressed out my hair falls out, with even the slightest touch to it. Well...my hair is so thin right now that instead of fiddling with the hair on my head I pulled my hair back and slapped a head band on. After doing that i decided to pull hair from a different location that would not be as notticeable. Yea. Well Im so done pulling my hair out basically to make people happy, im tired of not sleeping at night because i have to think of ways to make situations work for people except me. Most of all im tired of being unhappy. I want to spend time with my kids and not be preoccupied with other things that are not nearly as important. So everyone I am sorry if you're not happy but Oh well, my kids and I are way more important.

Time just drags by...

    Why is it that when you are looking forward to something time moves like a snail on a cold sidewalk? When you aren't looking forward to anything and just want to enjoy the blissfull niothingness, it races by like a speeding car, not cool.
         What can a stay at home mom have to look forward to you ask. Well...many things, the simplest things get me excited anymore. Going to the grocery store these days is like going to Disneyland wwhen you're a kid. Lame i know but i have nothing to look forward to. Except now we have our orders out of this humid armpit of a state. In the bnext couple of months we will be preparing for our cross country move to Washington! I am so happy, scared, excited and anxiety stricken. Mostly anxiety stricken, i want to get out of here but when i think about all things that need to be done like: packing, reserving the uhaul, signing out of this base, driving cross country in a uhaul, getting to our next post and having to stay in a hotel for a extended amount of time because all the nice housing has a long wait list and many many many more worries. It's enough to make my head spin and keep me up nights which it does.
 Thats enough whining for today...Im sure i'll be whining much more in the months between now and PCS time. Wish me luck, i want my sanity to stay intact

Yard Sales..Love them!

   So this weekend we were finally up and out of bed before 8...which is a MIRACLE. We as in my husband and I are usually in bed 'til about 9. Anyways since we were up and it was post wide yard sale day we decided to drive around and look for some treasures. Which is also a miracle as we Never leave the house before noon on the weekend...Im so proud of us. On our travels we only found a few things that could fit into our blueberry of a car.
    We got a drum set and a guitar for Rock Band for free, SCORE! Now were not sure if it works because we don't have the actual game but, Hey now were ready to play when we do actually buy it. We also got a Disney Princess table set only $25 and it was brand new, SCORE for us again! It also turns into a tower! Thats pretty much all we got...the natives were getting restless and i was tired of listening to them whine so we decided to put us and them out of misery and go home. I am determined to get up that early again so i can go on another treaure hunt.

My favorite holiday...

         Definitely without a doubt...Mothers day. I don't get expensive gifts or big beautiful flower arrangements. No, no i get things that are 1,000X better. I get my husband home which as an Army wife is a big deal in itself as a lot of military wives don't have their husbands home on this or many other holidays. I also get breakfast in bed not brought to me on a silver platter but on my little girls Princess drawing table ♥, I get fresh picked flowers from my front yard, picked with all the love a two year old has in her tiny little heart ♥, I get a day of not changing my sons diapers (every single one of which he pooped bahahaha) Best of all my dearest husband willingly and gladly cleans for me♥ I would not trade these simple and thoughtful gifts for the most expensive gifts in the world.

Yet another reason to not leave home without make-up

          You just might get interviewed by the local news station. Yes thats right, the one time i decide to leave the house with no make-up and a slouchy beret covering my hair...AGHHHH! I was so embarassed but I let them interview me anyways. I am so bad at public speaking that im surprised I didn't break down and cry...yea that happens to me...embarassing but so true. Here's a link to the video if anyone is interested http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/video?id=8110583
   So kids the moral of the story is never leave the house with out make-up, you just might get interview by a local news station and be on the 11 o'clock news. You may say "that'll never happen to me." Well thats what i thlought too and it happened to me. I am just so happy no one i know watches the news...well at least that late and that their not in the same time zone. Oh yea and There is no such thing as natural beauty

Life's A Beach

So cliche right? I know it may be im poor taste to start with a cliche but we spent the weekend at Myrtle Beach Sc. It was an amazing weekend, the first time My handsome could enjoy the beach...he turned 1 on friday, hence the trip to Myrtle Beach. We had a room right on the beach. let me tell you it was so nice falling asleep and waking up to the sound of waves crashing on the beach. The view wasn't too bad either...take a look
The whole weekend was spent on the beach and in the lazy river at the resort. We (husband and i) are burnt beyond recognition, thanks to my mommy brain I have the always classy "raccoon eyes" pretty much i forgot my contacts so I have a "farmer tan" on my Face ...sexy huh?? All in  all we had an awesome time the kids didn't want to leave and neither did we.

A place of my own. No one can get me here. Not my kids or my hubby. In a house where i never get more than one drink of my cup of water or any meal or snack that doesn't get taken over by kids...this is a big deal. Usually my "me" time is spent painting my nails or crocheting but now i think i will start writing...most likely about my kids.
