Something I need to do more...

Wow...I am really bad about keeping this updated. I know that I have plenty of time to sit down and write but I seem to forget that I have this. It definitely helps to have a place where you can write your thoughts down and heaven knows the little hamster in my head keeps going like the energizer bunny!

Quick update: We are still in SC! Supposed to leave around October although the navy does like to write things in warm jello so who knows!?!

So this is going to be short and sweet but I am making a point to come back and post at least 3 times a week! I WILL DO IT!

It's been a while!

So I realize it has been a while since I posted a blog and I think I should definitely start back up again.

We are now in South Carolina and have been since the last week of March. We really enjoy being here...most of the time. The state is absolutely beautiful but beauty isn't always everything! It is definitely nice to see Daniel every night, a HUGE change from OCS. He has been doing really well in power school and graduates on November 20th! I know he will be glad and I am kinda ready for prototype! I will enjoy that when he is home he is "home" and will not have to leave to go back and study.

Last week was pretty stressful. We were in a car accident and our insurance company totaled our car. In the long run I think that it will be better, but it has been such a headache. Neither one of us was severely injured thank God! We picked out a new car, a 2004 Dodge Durango Limited. It is REALLY nice and we are excited about the towing package!

Well I guess it's time for me to finish some laundry and get to bed!

I thought it would get easier

So I thought it would get easier as it got closer to Daniel coming back home. Instead I feel like it has gotten worse. Maybe it's because I am so anxious...who knows!?! I find myself crying more about him being gone than when he first left. I hope every time he leaves it is not like this. I wonder every day, will it get easier? I am just ready to be back with him....

So much has been going on lately...I feel like I am going to crumble. I found out last week that I was being laid off due to the economy and real estate market not getting better. Daniel's paycheck can cover the bills, but my paycheck was for "fun" money and to put into savings. I find myself trying to find things to do around the house so I don't drive myself crazy these next 3 weeks until his graduation. Hopefully I will be able to find a job for a few months after his graduation until we move to Charleston for Power school.

Part of me is ready to pack up and move and another part of me is wanting to stay just a little bit longer. Daniel should find out tomorrow when we will move to least it's still in the South =]

I know I can get through this....I know things will get better. I just have to sit back, wait, and listen.

Flu Season

So I can definitely tell that flu season is here. I have been saying for the past month that I was going to go get a flu shot. Of course, Mrs. Procrastination here has not done it! I started feeling bad a few days ago and called to schedule an appointment with the doctor and of course they are so busy I can't go until Tuesday! I was running fever today so I pretty much laid in bed watching movies and eating ice. I really hope I start feeling better soon!

Work has been so stressful...I am almost to the point where I am ready for me and Daniel to move as soon as he graduates. I feel like that is kinda running from my problems but it has been crazy! I just wish he was here! I guess being sick doesn't help my tollerance level!

On a brighter note...I think I may be flying for the first time in my life! SCARY!! I realized that Thanksgiving ran into Daniel's graduation week so I am going to drive to Kansas and spend Thanksgiving with the in-laws and then we will fly out Wednesday to go to Newport. I am so excited!!! I can't wait to visit with them and go see Daniel! He sent me an email today telling me that he got a 98 on one of his tests which doesn't suprise me...he always does well on tests. Hopefully our kids will get that from him!!! =]

Well, I think I hear cough syrup and my pillow calling my name!!

It shouldn't suprise me!

So this week has been one of the worst weeks in a very long time, and started on Saturday. I was about to leave to go shopping for my last minute ritual whites for the weekend when my aunt called and told me that my Nannie (grandmother) passed out at my cousin's shower and hit her head extremely hard on the tile floor at the church. She said that they were bringing her to the hospital. Now, they live in an extremely small town and the local hospital is not the best place. A better hospital is in a city about 45 mins north of them and of course they had no available rooms because after the hurricanes it they had to evacuate patients from the costal areas and move them north and most of those patients still have not been able to go back home. So she had to stay at the hospital for 3 nights which was miserable for her. I had to call her every few mintues to keep her updated on the LSU game and the UGA vs. Bama game! She is doing MUCH better now and it at home which is a huge relief.

So just as I thought nothing could be worse than that....I am getting ready to go to work on Monday and I can not find my keys! So I do not panic just yet, grab the spare set, and run out the door so I would not be late for work. I searched the office just to make sure they were not there and of course they weren't. I searched my car and Daniel's car, still nowhere to be found. I have searched every inch of the house and I still can not find them!!! I do not understand how I could lose a set of keys that have like 8 key chains, plus 5 or 6 keys, and a card holder key chain!!!

Thankfully I received four letters from Daniel which have really helped put me in a better mood. It's times like this that I am going completely CrAzY that I am glad he is not here because I wouldn't want to stress him out. I miss him so much it's not even funny. This week has been one of the hardest since he has been gone...I swear it seems like there is always a week that make it seem worse than the one before it that was so horrible. When it rains, it pours!!! Only a little while longer until he will be back home...I can not wait!!!

So on a brighter note...I finished two of my books! I think I am starting to become a big fan of Nicholas Sparks. I am going to pick up his newest book that was released yesterday, today after I get off work. I dropped off Daniel's car at the handwash car place today and I wasn't prepared for the price, but they do a good job so it is worth it I guess. Hopefully the end of this week will start looking up soon!!!

Will it grow fast enough?

Now that fall is here and winter in nearing I can not help but excited. I love cold weather. Mainly for the reason I LOVE blankets (weird, I know). I almost always have to have a blanket covering me. I also love winter for the simple reason that I do not get out in the sun alot and the natural red in my hair comes out. I went and got my hair trimmed today and I curious to see if it can grow 6 or 7 more inches by the end of March. I can only hope and pray that it does because I have decided that I want to cut 10 or 12 inches again to send to locks of love (and also to have short hair again) =] I love my hair when it is long but it is so hard to keep up with! I have heard that horse shampoo will make your hair grow faster but the thought of putting horse shampoo in my hair freaks me out!

Hopefully I will get to talk to Daniel this Sunday. I really miss talking to him. I feel horrible because I haven't had/made time to write him letters. I just go and buy a cute card, fill up one side, and mail it off. Gosh, I am such a horrible navy wife! I finally found a framed collage of pictures of me and him and hung it up in the bedroom. I was planning of trying to find a plane ticket to fly to see him for the navy ball, but since it will be on a Wednesday, that will no longer happen =[

I didn't get much sleep last night because our dog decided he didn't want to stay on the bed. He would jump down, bark at the door, and then whine to get back on the bed. As soon as I would pick him up and put him back on the bed he would start all over again! So after about 5 times I just opened the door and let him roam from room to room. He keeps finding Daniel's socks and I have no idea where he is getting them!!!

I can not wait to watch Ugly Betty and Grey's tonight!!! I have been needing to finish the last 6 chapters of one of my books but of course... have been to busy watching tv! Ugh...I hate procrastination but it has unfortunately become a big part of my life since I turned 13. I will finish that book before Sunday!!!! =]

A Berry Good Day...again!

I have come to the conclusion that my husband is the most amazing man that God ever put on this earth! So today, I am at work, getting documents prepared for a closing and my boss comes in with yet ANOTHER package. I couldn't believe I was getting another package!! So I open it up and OMGsh there were a dozen chocolate covered HUGE strawberries! I didn't even know that he remembered that chocolate covered strawberries are my fav!! I am so ready for him to come home! I am glad that he has been spoiling me by sending me gifts, but deep down, I could careless about the gifts. The best gift ever would be to have him here with me. It's strange how these gifts can make it easier for one mintue and then hard the next. It's like they are even more of a reminder that he is not coming home for a while. I am still more than grateful and I love him with all of my heart! I wish I could call him to tell him THANK YOU and that I love him! He is so amazing, I can't help but smile every time I think about him and how wonderful he is!! =] What did I ever do to deserve him?

I can not wait to watch Dancing with the Stars tonight and CSI:NY! I have so much going on this fall and too many great shows to watch! All I can say is thank God for Ti-vo!!!!

I almost done reading a book a started last week. I should have been done already but I have been procrastinating! I have 6 chapters left and I need to finish all 6 by late tomorrow so I can start on another book. I have so much stuff that I have been occuping my time with that I am forgetting to do other important stuff. Hopefully after this weekend things should calm down.
