Saturday, March 26, 2011 of my favorite quotes (what's yours?)

.."I'm looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love." ~Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and The City. of my favorite quotes, what's yours?

..SLEEP... wow!

Today I was woken up by my nephew, he says "are you alright?" I replied, "yea, I'm okay why?" he says, "cause it's 1p o'clock!"

Wtheck!? I cannot believe I slept in so late AND I actually slept! I truly woke up and felt that I could have slept a few more hours. My eyes are still puffy, I am still drinking coffee, still feeling groggy BUT I so needed that extra sleep. I haven't slept like that in months! This past week has been very long, emotional, stressful and didn't end fast enough.

Work has been a nightmare, already difficult working for the Army and then add a negative co-worker is the icing on the cake or is it the tip of the iceberg? ADD the whole insomnia thing from deployment and this girl who has already been emotional (which i was before) and depressed AND exhausted (this list could really go on and on...) But for some reason, this week has been rough. I think I had figured I was barely getting about 4 hours of sleep, some nights maybe less than that.

Missing your Soldier, your best friend, your husband is really hard in itself. Always worrying about him, always wanting to know if he is getting enough food, sleep, mail, etc.. Its what we do. Being apart from him is not easy but WE do our best to keep this side of the water going, keepin ourselves busy, and makin sure its all the same when he gets home.

So SANDMAN, thank you for helping me get some ZZZZZZZ's. It was nice of you to visit! I hope this means you will visit me more often.

..staying busy but not busy enough

..i am sure all of us say the exact same thing..."staying busy but not busy enough." i have been keeping myself busy every weekend, i look at the calendar and its STILL March??? wth? this long month is NOT helping my time go by. 4 year old birthday here, 5 year old birthday there, happy hour a few times, over to friends houses, movie nights, etc... STILL March. what does a girl have to do to make it go faster!!!!!!

i have been mailing out care packages, buying more stuff for care packages, putting together scentsy catalogs and mailing them out. UGH so exhausting to trying to keep oneself BUSY.

well, i somehow got myself signed up for Relay for Life and Red Cross 5k (great for my exercise and on the same weekend, OY wish me luck on that! lol) and two great causes!

spring break is next month for my nephew. gotta do something for him that week (but i still have to work).

now i am just rambling... COME ON TIME tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock........

..perfect timing a long awaited phone call from my sweet Goose today. as we were talking, the door bell rang and it was fedex. Talk about perfect timing!!! he sent me these beautiful flowers and a teddy bear! i couldn't have asked for a more wonderful husband! i love you baby!

i don't get to hear from him as often as some others do but when he does call, i am so very thankful and blessed to hear his voice, he seems to always say the right things to me and does things like this!!! thank you God for sending him into my life!

..gotta keep going

well, another month down, whew. that was a tough one. noticing that i am NOT that emotional as i was. so this month has started off okay... have a teacher/parent (guardian lol) conference, going to see a new baby this weekend, go hang out with a friend for drinks maybe, and then not really sure BUT maybe just MAYBE try to sleep for once or a little bit MORE!

i did get more care packages mailed out today so my sweet Soldier will be happy if he ever gets them.. i have sent 4 and he has only received 2, so maybe by May? he might get them lol...

the New season for Scentsy has started! so that has me really busy at this time. I now have two people on my lil team and then one of them has a person on their team. i believe this is going to be a great season for us all! gotta mail out new catalogs!!! busy busy
i have paid all of my bills for February LOL so i feel good about that. i got my bday gift from my sister and my Christmas present from my dad and step mom lmao i know, i know... but i got it! it couldn't have come in a better time, a really nice wallet (mine had busted at the seams and was ripped lol). OH and i FINALLY got my earrings back from my sisters. Damn i have missed them! (my earrings lol just kidding!)
haven't gotten to talk to my Soldier but a few emails here and there is so much better than nothing! i miss him every second of the day. R&R cannot come fast enough! (i love you honey!)
