I'm back for good, I swear!

Ok, so A LOT has happened. in my last post I said that my husband wouldn't be coming home. BUUUUT,.. surprise! He did! :) For 3 weeks and then he left again and will be gone for  months. It sucks but I'm glad i had 3 weeks with him. And my manager was so cool about my work schedule when he was home. She let me work only when he was working and she gave me the whole last week off so I could be with him. It was the best 3 weeks. Saying goodbye to him again sucked, but I got to say it was a lot easier than the first time. I wish I didn't have to say goodbye at all but it's whatever.

On other news, my husband and I have been trying for a baby! No luck. :( And I found out today that my best friend here is pregnant. They just randomly decided to try while the guys were home and it worked for them, why not us?! I mean I'm soo happy for her but I can't help but feel.. jealous I guess? Does that make me a bad person? I mean she's only 18 and here I am I've been with my man for 6 yrs and there's nothing I want more than to have his baby and I can't get pregnant. Ugh.

But, onto a better topic. Work is amazing. I absolutely love it! Everyone I work with is so nice and I've made so many friends. Going to work is exciting for me because it's like going to hang out with friends. And I've never had that at a job before. All my previous jobs were horrible experiences. Lol.

I'm planning a little surprise for my husband. We talked about getting each others names tattooed on us but he wanted something a little more original and he also wanted a pin up girl so we decided instead, that he should get ME tattooed on him in a pin up pose. So for Halloween I'm going to be a sailor and my friends are going to take pictures on me in pin upy poses and I'm going send him the pictures in one of his care packages and he has no idea. It's like the perfect little surprise for him and I'm so excited for it! :)

I just can't wait for Halloween to get here! Because once Halloween is here then before you know it, it'll be Thanks Giving, my birthday, Christmas and New Years and then it'll be January and from there it's only a few more months before he's home! I've been of since yesterday and I don't go back to work until Tuesday and I've been sooo bored. The day just keeps dragging on! Ugh.  I just can't wait for time to fly.

I've been M.I.A!

So I haven't blogged, mainly because absolutely nothing has happened to me! I'm boring. But tonight we got news... since it's not happening I guess I can talk about it now. There was rumor that my husband's ship would come back for a few weeks and then go back out to finish the deployment. And tonight we found out it's definitely not happening. I mean, there was a part of me that knew it wouldn't but that doesn't make it any less disappointing! Some days I feel really strong, but others I feel so weak like I can't do this without him. But I have to admit, I do have more stronger days than weak ones. I just can't imagine my life without him for so long. Ugh! I'm so done. He wants to make a career out of this but I can not do this my whole life! Ugh. I don't know... I'm just having one of those weak nights and I don't want to pitty myself anymore. I'm just going to throw myself into working out and losing all the weight I need to, and work! I might get a second job...

Own my own business?... Having a business partner!?

So day are going by fast, and I'm keeping very busy. Today a friend and I went to the mall and got a ton of job applications and we even have an interview tomorrow! So that will take up even more time which I'm very happy about!

But then my husband got to talking with one of the guys he works with and he was telling my husband that his wife owns her own day care service and charges $700 per child and brings in more money than her husband! And he hooked me up with her to give me more information about it! I've babysat my whole life and this instantly lit a bulb in my head! So my friend and I decided to go into it together. We could make a career out it and make bank! Obviously money doesn't matter but it helps!  The more I think about it the more excited I get. I feel like I finally found what I want to do with my life. I absolutely LOVE kids, I'm great with them and I have no idea why I didn't think of this sooner! Here I am discouraged and thinking I'm never going to figure out what I want to do with my life and this was right under my nose the entire time. And I get to do it with a really great friend of mine who also hasn't figured out what she wanted to do with her life until we discussed this idea! I'm going to go look up some info on this! I just had to blog about it right away! Lol.

What do you guys think about this? Let me know!

Just another post.

So I haven't posted in a while, mainly because I haven't had much to say. Some drama went down on FB with some other Navy wives and lets just say, I now know who to watch out for because of their two faced bullshit. Honestly. It's like being back in high school with these girls. Probably because they're still babies and just graduated from high school like yesterday! Lol. But whatever it's not worth even talking about.

I went to the doctors and FINALLY got all my meds for my asthma so it's no longer trying to kill me everyday! Horray! Lol. What else? I've been going to the gym regularly. I figure if my husband has to be away from me I might as well get skinny again while he's gone and surprise him when he gets back! :) My friend "J" has been training me. She's a genius when it comes to exercising. Today I'm super super sore! But it'll be worth it when I'm high school skinny again!

My dogs are really starting to act up. They're missing their daddy! :( My youngest dog keeps chewing up everything in sight! Like my freaking GPS wire! And my oldest dog, who is almost 3 and has been house broken since the first week we brought him home, keeps having "accidents" and they just happen to be on my husband's stuff or beside his side of the bed. Poor puppys. I don't know what to do for them! I pay extra attention to them and I take them for long walks, and I've even been staying home so I could spend for time with them but they keep doing it. I decided to put my foot down today and start punishing them but I feel horrible doing it because I know they're just missing my husband just like I am!

I've been doing A LOT better. My nights aren't as bad and I haven't cried since the second night. It really is getting easier. Just like you ladies told me it would! I don't like coming home to an empty house, and I have to put a chair under my front door, AND I tweak out every time I hear a noise outside... but that's normal right? Lol. Hopefully that will pass also.

Other than that, the hubby is in port right now so he's been calling me everyday, and texting! And it's amazing!  That's another reason I think I've been doing so well. Hearing his voice really helps! :)

I decided to read 50 pages of a book every night. I'm starting with the Twilight series! I'm a dork, I know. Lol. So yea, not much else has happened! I'll post tomorrow! :)

Doing Better!

So I feel like all I've been doing is complaining! And from here on out I'm not going to do that anymore! I need to just suck it up and get over it and stop feeling sorry for myself. Plenty of women have gone through this and survived and if they can do it then I can too!

Today was really good. I slept in again today but only because I slept in yesterday and didn't get to bed  until late late night. But I'm going to try not to do that tonight. Last night was hard. Obviously yous guys know about that, I blogged about it. But today I woke up, went tanning, then hung out with two friends all day and ended up having a mini party and myself and another friend I met here whose also from PA became the beer bong champs! Lol. It was fun. And I didn't get home until 11:30. So my whole day was occupied! Which was so nice. But now I'm back home, got the last e-mail of the night from the hubby, didn't cry! So I'm just going to grab something to eat and hit the sack! Night ladies! :)

P.S. Thanks for all the support. <3

One day at a time...

So last night I was so exhausted, I went to bed at 9 and fell right to sleep. But then I woke up around 11 and the next few hrs were absolutely horrible. I couldn't stop crying, I was sick in my stomach, and really really missing my husband. I have to call my mom and at her time it was after 2am. But she talked to me until I could fall back to sleep. Thank god for mothers!

I planned on sleeping all day today, or at least as long as a possibly could. But my friend "J" called me and was basically like "Get your ass out of bed right now! I'm coming to get you and we're going out!" So we went tanning and ran a few errands. The days are decent I figure it's because in the daytime the hubby is usually working. But the nights are hard. That's the time we always spent together. Even when we drove from FL to PA for holidays and we were on the road for 20 hrs, we would go home and just hang out the two of us for a few hrs before we went to bed. It's what we do and it's what we've done for the last 6 years! So my nights definitely aren't easy.

I just got an e-mail from him and for some reason it just made me cry. So right now i'm right where I was last night and it's making me think that tomorrow night will be the same way and every night until he's home. I don't know how people do this, I really don't. People say I'm strong for being a military wife, but i'm not. I'm weak and all I want is my husband back! This sucks so bad. Whatever. Post tomorrow I guess.

Thursday, July 15, 2010

It's done. No going back from here.

Well, the husband is officially gone until further notice. The morning was absolutely horrible. I didn't even make it out the front door before balling my eyes out. Saying goodbye was the hardest thing I've ever had to do to say the least! Then, I left base after saying "See ya later!" and being new to the area, I don't know the road very well and my eyes were teary and apparently I missed the sign that said the lane I was in ended! So I literally almost caused a pile up on the freaking highway. Ugh. To top it off, I got home and all I wanted to do is call my Mother and I was pleasantly surprised with my phone being shut off... when the bill wasn't even due until the 28th! WTF!? Needless to say I called freaking out and got it turned back on but that was the last thing I needed after my morning. So yea, I had little nervous break down. I'm still not great and I don't know how I'll be by tonight but I was able to go out with some friends all day and a close friend of mine and I went to see the ships departure which wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. AND my husband's rate makes it a hell of a lot easier to e-mail me because he works on computers all day long. So I've been getting e-mails left and right! I have it set up on my phone to notify me as soon as I get a new e-mail with my text message tone. So it's just like texting him! Which makes me happy. Lol. I'm hoping tomorrow will be better than today. And even better the next day. But who knows. Everyone please pray for my husband's ship to return home safely! 

Thank you to everyone who has offered their support! It means so much! Oh, and I reached my goal followers of 20! Well, actually over 20 now. But woo hoo! :) Now.... 50! Lol.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Wow! I can't believe all the support I've been getting.  I haven't signed on in a few days because obviously, I'm spending every second I possibly can with my husband! Lol. But when I signed on this morning, I had a hand full of new followers, and several very supportive and informative comments! Which I appreciated to no end. I can't even begin to express my gratitude! Honestly. I never thought blogging would become everything it has to me and I'm so grateful to have connected with such wonderful women who are not only interested in what I have to say, but also know what I'm going through. So, thank you, thank you thank you thank you! I absolutely will reply to everyones comments... in a few days. Lol. I don't have much time left with the husband and as I'm sure you understand, all I want to do is be with him right now. But obviously when he leaves I'll have sooo much time on my hands and I'll probably be practically LIVING on here! Lol.

Sooo, today my living room set is being delivered and we're getting cable! Woo hoo! I feel like a normal person! Lol. We've been chilling in our living room on camping chairs since we moved here... ooooh, 2-3 weeks ago? Yea. Lol. So I'm super excited! I also have a doctors appointment my husband is dragging me to so I can get back on my asthma medications. (Basically he's trying to fit as much stuff humanly possible in in one day. To keep my mind off what's right around the corner is my guess!) Well, I'll update in a few days! <3

A Penny for My Thought

Have you ever dealt with a fellow military wife talking openly about deployments on facebook? I have and to be honest I'm quite sick of it. It's normally the younger wives that are still new to the military world and yea I've been there, of course. I would consider myself still relativity new. But isn't it just common sense to watch what you say about our military? I feel like sending them all a link to my OPSEC page! But I loved today someone posted the exact date and time of the ships deployment my husband happens to be on. I'm sorry but wtf? Obviously the higher ups on facebook did something about it and i just realized she took it down. Luckily they're pretty good about that. So anyways I'm ranting and being uninteresting so i'm going to cut this short. Peace out ladies! <3

Thursday, July 8, 2010

Yay!

I have 17 followers! Lol. That makes me happy. What was my goal? 20? Getting close! It's funny, I'm so excited about 17 followers and some of you have like 900! Haha. But thanks to all my followers for following me! :)

Anyway, how many of you have survived a long deployment? What did you do to keep busy? I feel like I have so many things planned for while the hubby is away but not nearly enough to keep my mind off missing him. I think I'm just thinking too much into this. I know I'll be fine. I'm not the first nor the last military wife that has to go through this. I just don't really know what to expect. I'm going to miss him A LOT. I can't imagine spending every day without him and going to bed every night with out him for months months. Ugh. At least I have something to look forward to,.. him coming back!



Tuesday, July 6, 2010

I'm back,.. for reals this time! :)

Ok so, turns out my friend used to design myspace layouts and I guess she's really good with html and all that fun stuff and I teamed up with her to finally make a cute layout! I'm so excited about it! Just what I was looking for! :)

Anyway. Sorry I've been so horrible with keeping up with this blog. I just honestly haven't had time. Preparing for the Hubby leaving soon has taken up all my free time not to mention I want to spend every waking moment with him while he's here at this point! But everything's back on schedule now and I have a little time to sit down and catch up on things while he's at work!

So not too much has happened really. I made friends super fast here. Which is totally awesome because I can't stay it was that easy the last 2 times we moved. My friend "J" and I go to the gym every work day morning and once I get back on my asthma medications she's going to train me. So I'll be ripped by the time Hubby gets back! Lol.

Well I'm going to go back to editing my blog and hopefully I have some time to read up on here! :)

So how about this oil spill?

I've been out of the loop so I haven't been able to blog about this. So I want to know, what are your thought on this? Personally I'm quite pissed! It ruined Pensacola beach. I only lived there for a year but that still feels like my home and it breaks my heart to see globs of oil covering the entire beach. Not to mention all the damage it's doing to our sea life and just people in general. And they're not doing a damn thing to fix it. Oh wait no,.. they were going to try sticking things like golf balls and bits of tires down it. Seriously? And like, do you guys think it's a big conspiracy with Obama to make himself look better by fixing it? (Even though he's not?) I've also heard about them dropping a nuke, and stuffing it with hair, which I have to say does actually sound like it might work? To me. Idk. Hair soaks up oil is what I'm thinking. Recently I heard they were going to try and cut it off from a different spot or something but it's a long term plan. It could take months or years? I'm torn. I'm just so disappointed in our government. I mean, I know that's a touchy subject so I'm not even going to get into all that.

On a better topic... I made friends here so quickly. It's awesome. I knew I would make friends but with a deployment in our future I was a little nervous to be stuck here alone. Speaking of deployment, yea. Where did the time go? Honestly. The last 4 months just flew by!

Well anyway, I'm still not happy with my template. If you have any good websites for free cute templates please let me know! I can't find any I like, I tried making one myself and that just wasn't happening. Lol. So I'm on the hunt again!

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I'm baaack!

I know I've been slacking big time! But Mr. S. goes back to work tomorrow and I'll have more time to sit down and blog! Lots to tell! I'll write tomorrow! =)

I'M IN WASHINGTON!.. FINALLY!

So our move was successful and not as stressful as I thought! The road trip was amazing! The day we left we realized our GPS was taking us straight through PA and our home town right passed our parents houses! Lol. So we decided to stop and stay there our first night on the road. We just showed up and surprised everyone and it was just really nice. Then the next day we stopped in Indania to camp and almost got attacked by racoon's! One started coming after our dogs so my husband told us to get in the tent, and then it started going after him! Well this lasted for hours then finally game control came and turns out the raccoon was foaming at the mouth and they had to put it down. =( it was horrible. I felt to bad for the poor thing! What a way to start off our trip. Then some other raccoons tried stealing our cooler! Lol. The next night we camped in Iowa and it was a lot better than the night before! We stopped in this little town called Welcome. It was like something out of a movie. In the middle of town across from the only church, they had a horse water bowl for when you ride your horse into town! It was just so cute! And the camp site we stayed at was so much more down to earth and raccoons didn't try to eat us! Lol. The NEXT day we stopped in South Dakota and there was so much stuff to do there that we decided to stay for 3 days and site see. We saw Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and went through a drive through wild life park which was awesome! Lol.

Montana was by far the most beautiful state I've ever seen! Smallest towns I've ever seen to! Towns that didn't even have grocery stores and it was 75 miles before the first walmart and 45 miles before a gas station! And I thought I came from out in the sticks! Lol. Then we started getting into the mountains. Which was absolutely beautiful. Amazing. I can't even put it into words! We drove right through the heart of the rocky mountains where all you can see on both sides of you is rocks. It was unbeliebable. And the mountains with snow in the tops looked like they came straight out of a painting! Lol.

We had the time of our lives! And it was so nice with deployment coming up to spend that time with my husband! =)

I'll update more later, got to go unpack some more stuff in our new apartment!

Sunday, June 6, 2010

Quick Post...

So yesterday we got boxes and bought the parts for our car. Today I packed everything I could and a million boxes later.. I need more boxes! Lol. So while I was doing that the Hubby was putting new breaks on, rotating the tires, and changing the oil in the car. Tomorrow we're getting the uhaul and doing all the last minute stuff and we're hitting the road early Tuesday morning! I'm so excited you have no idea!

Well I won't be able to post for a while since we'll be on the road all week. But you can follow my tweets if you would like, they're to the right on this page and down a tad! I'll update about WA asap! =)

Sorry this was so boring. Lol. I hope everyone has a great week!

Friday, June 4, 2010

Packing and other fun stuff!

So I got a TON of stuff packed in some left over boxes from the first move and I didn't completely unpack last time so some of it was already done! Lol. But I'm looking around and wondering where the hell did all this stuff come from?! Lol. We can't get the Navy to move us like we planned this entire time. I guess they need to know 3 weeks ahead of time which I don't understand because they didn't even tell us we were moving until 4 days before! So we're stuck getting a Uhaul and hauling it all across the country ourselves. Luckily we get reimbursed because honestly, who can afford to move 45 hrs away with only a 4 day notice? Not us that's for sure! We have to get a hitch installed on our car so we can pull a trailer. That won't be done until Monday because they have to special order some parts. We have to get our breaks fixed because they're horrible right now and not only are we traveling across the country, but we'll be lugging a trailer which adds pressure to the breaks on hills. Oh and an oil change is much needed!



One good thing,.. we have to get rid of our couch set because we won't be able to fit everything. So I'm giving them away for free to a needy family. Least I can do. I'm blessed with everything I need but some people aren't so fortunate. That's what we did with our last set when we lived in Pensacola too. A family whose house burned down came and took them. They had to start over completely from scratch so they appreciated that living room set way more than I ever did.

Ahh. Somewhere between all this we have to pack, load the uhaul and run around tying loose ends,.. I don't know where I'm going to get the time for all this! Lol. Oh the life of a Navy Wife! Got to love it! =)



OH! And we found an apartment! A temp apartment. My friend lives there and it's really nice! I'm super excited about it. But we're going to rent a house when my Husband get's back from his first deployment for the duration of our time in Washington. =)

So ok this is turning into a novel and I really need to take the puppies for a walk and get back to work on the apartment! By the way we hit the road on Tuesday! Eeps!



Thursday, June 3, 2010

So we knew we would be moving to Washington state soon or at the very latest August. But we weren't given an exact date,.. until today! My Husband just randomly texts me and was like "We leave Monday." Lol. I was so excited I think I squealed a little. Haha. I can't wait to get there!!! I don't know all the details yet. I'm just waiting on my Husband to fill me in! eeps! I can't wait to hit some hiking trails!



So a little off topic... I can't believe I have 13 followers you guys! That's nothing compared to some people, but I honestly didn't think I would even have 5 followers! Lol. So I'm pretty excited about that! I'm shooting for 20+. I love knowing people actually read my posts! =)

Thanks for following me!!! <3

Memorial Day


A whole group of people who shall remain nameless are getting a little ahead of themselves and keep posting on facebook about how fun Labor Day weekend was. Well, I'm glad they had fun and all, and maybe it's just the military wife in me, but are people really that ignorant? HELLO it was Memorial Day dumbasses! I bet they never even thought for a second about all the people who lost their lives for our freedom. Instead they partied it up and celebrated the beginning of summer with a holiday that actually symbolizes the end of summer. Way to go. Someone's son/daughter, mother/father, brother/sister died so you can go out and party because freedom isn't free. This actually really gets under my skin.

Honestly, how do you feel about this? Let me know!

So I just want to say Thank You to all the men and women who have served and who are currently serving our country! Some people don't believe in it or appreciate it, but I do. And I know I'll sleep peacefully tonight knowing the U.S. Military is fighting for my safety and my freedom!

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day! <3

ROAD TRIP!



So today we're leaving for PA! I'm super excited I loove road trips! But we just got Taco a few weeks ago and he hasn't been in the car for more than an hr. So this should be interesting. Lol.


My Husband's grandmother is home now. Thank goodness. No more news about the cancer. But we made homemade chicken soup last night to take to her tomorrow. =)

Umm, what else? I'm coloring my hair today! I'm going lighter, but not by much. It's a light golden brown. Right now it's a medium brown but I have natural red highlights. It's a curse. So it looks auburn in the sun. Time for a change!... Even though my highlights will show through in about a week or so. Lol.

Hmmm,.. well I'm being boring so I'll cut this short!
Pray we have a save trip! =)

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Yesterday my husband woke up to a phone call from his Mother with horrible news. They just found out his grandmother has lung cancer. Possibly in both lungs. Cancer is always bad, but what makes this even worse is she was a breast cancer survivor not too long ago. She just started growing all her hair back from chemo. And now she has to go through it all over again. It's so sad. My husband's grandfather (her husband) is also a survivor of skin cancer and depends on her for everyday tasks. If something were to happen to her who know what will happen to him. And my husband is taking it pretty hard.

I know what he's going through, my Father passed away in '08 and just a few months later my Nonni, my Father's Mother passed after holding on by a string the last few years.

I'm just glad that since we're going home this weekend, he can spend some time with her and if anything were to happen he wouldn't have 'I should have been there' hanging over his head. He's lucky, because when my Nonni passed away we lived in FL and I wasn't able to fly home for her funeral and I hadn't seen her for months before that. So he may have a gift and I'm grateful for that.

But we're going to stay on the positive side of things! His grandmother kicked breast cancer like a pro so we're hopeful. =)

Please say a prayer for Shirley Cain. <3

I Love Nice People!


Seriously. Lol. I was thinking... it's so nice when you meet a nice person! For instance, when I was moving to FL I was moving straight out my parent's home and I had to get on 3 different planes alone. I had never flown before and even though I was excited to see my husband, I was terrified of the trip there! But luckily on the first plane from PA to TN, the man sitting beside me was an older gentlemen and he went out of his way to make my first plane trip a good one, explaining the different things I'll see in FL and keeping my mind off flying. He even offered me half of his very tiny breakfast. Lol. It was sweet. Then at the airport in TN I met this older lady and her grandson. She watched my things while I got my ticket for the next plane printed out and her grandson played with Bruiser which was the nicest part because he was couped up in a dog carrier he clearly out grew of. Poor thing! And on the next plane the woman next to me stuck up for me when a flight attendant who must have woke up on the wrong side of the bed was complaining about me taking Bruiser on the plane when I paid extra to be able to do so. Then she helped me keep him calm. =)

Another quick story,.. When my husband and I were moving from FL to here, we made it as far as GA and we blew a tire. Which normally isn't so bad except since we were moving we had the trunk over stuffed and we had to unpack it on the side of a very busy highway to get the spare out. Well this super nice cop seen us and stopped. He not only helped my husband change the tire AND pack the car back up, he also took our old tire and escorted us to the nearest tire place. We thought he had already done more than he had to and then he talked people who worked there and told them how we were moving and still have a few hrs of driving ahead of us and the took us right away. The whole thing took about 20 minutes. He didn't have to even stop. Let alone help us out the way he did!

Or how about the other day we were waiting in line with only a few items and the lady in front of us let us go ahead of her. Not exactly rare. But when we went to thank her, she said "Just pay it forward!" I loved that! Lol. One little thing like that can brighten up your whole day. =)

I'm going hoome! =)

We're going home for Memorial Day weekend and I'm super excited! It's nice living so close to home. We're originally from Pennsylvania so in Virginia we're only about 7 hrs away! So we try to go home as much as we can since we'll be moving clear across the country soon.

Home Sweet Home!


Actually I lived about an hr outside of the city in a small country town you've never heard of! Yep, that's right,.. Who's a country girl? This girl right here! =) Lol. I miss it there a lot! I mainly just miss the familiar- Knowing everyone's cars, all your neighbors, all the roads, the stores... etc. It's crazy starting from scratch so many times! We're only a year into my husband's contract and have already moved twice and will be moving again next month! Lol.

How many times have you had to move for the military? =)

Intro...

Where to start? I love my life has a Navy wife! My husband and I have been married for 1 year and together for over 5! I'm 20 and he's 21. Yes, we're young. But that's not exactly odd in the military world. Lol. He has been in the navy for a little over a year now and is an E-3 ATI. So far during our military life, we've lived in Pensacola, FL, recently made the move to Virginia Beach, Virginia and soon we'll be moving to our perm duty station in Washington state where we'll be for the duration of my husband's time in the Navy! For this contract anyway.

I did have to put my educational career on hold for a little while because of the Navy, but in fall 2011 I fully intend to go to school for cosmetology and work toward my lifetime goal of one day owning my own hair salon/spa! It might not be everyone's idea of a lifetime goal but it's mine and it's what I've wanted to do my entire life. So I'm really excited to finally get started on it! =)

Well, I don't know what else to say... so I'll post another time! Lol.
