Imagine Dragons

Tuesday, June 25, 2013
I wish I would get up and blog when I write my good stuff which is right when I'm going to sleep. Oh well.

Their whole effin album is superb. No joke. It's worth the purchase.

This not-even-two weeks has been so hard. It reminds me of the two years David was gone on his mission and we only had letters and e-mail to communicate. Except we don't even have e-mail this time.

So I would take China for three months with a newborn over this one month. Ugh. Hard.

I just sent him a letter and in it I think I complained a lot and I figured I should probably not do that anymore because I want him to get an overall "E" (the best you can get). So I guess you're gonna have to hear about it.

My brother-in-law Jared just joined Facebook yesterday. This is worth writing down. I'm only taking partial credit. lol. lol.

We had this awesome leadership training yesterday. I watched it via the interwebs. I felt something. I was moved and I kind of super needed that. You should check out this website. It's super cool. I'm also happy to answer any questions you might have.

I hope you are in iTunes buying the Imagine Dragons album. One of my favorite songs is their Underdog song. And My Fault. And Bleeding Out. Oh and Nothing Left to Say. Crap. They're all good. No joke. It's the kind of music that makes you feel something.

Anyway, I should get commission for recommending them right?

Well I'm gonna go. I'm going to attempt another military ID. Did I tell you that story? If not, I'll tell it next time. What's your favorite entire album? Not just good songs. I want to know about whole albums that are great. Please share.

The Incredible Sadness

Tuesday, June 18, 2013
I'm not sure of these lessons I keep having to learn.

I strained/sprained/tore a muscle in my back. I almost can't walk. I took Advil and laid on a heating pad and thus I am able to write this blog. lol. But really. Why do all the hard lessons have to be learned while David is gone?

Last summer I broke my foot and sprained the other one AND had kidney stone surgery and what-not.

A lesson in humility? How to ask for help? I don't know. But I don't like it. It doesn't help that I don't feel that well either. I'm trying to catch the symptoms before they turn into a full on cold/bronchitis. I've been using my oils. Have you?

I'm feeling REALLY sorry for myself today. I feel sad. That's pretty much what describes it. (Get ready for goober mushiness) I miss David. I miss talking to him. I don't feel complete without him. And usually, I'm much better than I am because at least I can talk to him and complain and tell him I love him and tell him I miss him and vent about how awful or wonderful the kids are. But not this month. No talking except via old school letters.

I sent him a package yesterday and a letter today. My friend said she wrote her husband every day so I'm gonna try and match her and do the same. Plus, it was quite therapeutic sitting down to write to him. I told him the good and the bad. I bet some of you would discourage me from writing the bad because it might distract him. But guess what? Shut up. lol.

Also, we are low on money funds and while that's not a big deal because we have what we need, it's frustrating because I can't go and do. I love going and doing. And I realize it doesn't cost money to go and do but it does cost gas! And that costs money. And it's also freakin' hard to go anywhere with kids. 3 of them.

Ugh. What's the positive in this? I don't see it yet.

I'm trying to plan for and look forward to a vacation with my friends and I'm not sure that's gonna happen. I have to wait. Wait to see if I will have the funds.

Boo. Do you feel bad for me yet?

In other news, Jackson lost his first tooth! I'm so excited and also very sad. This is the beginning of him growing up. I hate it.

Also, I was reading my journal the other day. An actual written one. And I had written about Sadie and some of her milestones at 1 year old. I don't know if I ever did a birthday post for Nevie. Did I? I can't remember. Anyway, her bottom 2 lateral incisors (that's right homies) have come in. That makes for 8 teeth total! She's also still scooting and not wanting to put weight on her feet. She's flexible as all get-out. And also, really cute. She smiles and laughs and dances and can talk! She does "more" in sign language and just learned to wave. She says "Go" and "thank you" and can mimic at least in baby sound other words we say. Love.

Facebook isn't working and I want to upload the pictures Shayna took of us. To Facebook. Because they are ridiculously cute.

I'm going to watch smutty TV.  Can you please send me money? I accept cash, credit cards and checks. Also money orders. lol.

 We made pasta with Caden. Actually, Caden made pasta with the kids. lol. She's amazing.



So It Begins... Again. But Don't Worry It's Not Too Depressing Of A Post

Thursday, June 13, 2013
This was actually supposed to be a picture of
grandma and the grandkids in the background
but it ended up being a good one of my man.
Yesterday I started this post via my phone app about my feelings about David leaving for LDAC. But when you're on your computer apparently you can't see the phone posts. Whatever. I'll be using that site to stay updated. The LDAC one. You can too.  It's interesting because I don't remember much of what I was feeling yesterday (which is why I made the post). I'm feeling today: Sad

I'm actually super glad the time is finally here cause I always have a bit of anxiety up until he finally leaves. Do you realize he has left me for at least a month for the last 3 years? No big deal right?

This summer will be a different story. Nevie is in a different phase of life. One where she doesn't want to take naps and wants to follow me around like crazy. Like a crazy little puppy. It's endearing and also a little bit.... hard to do anything.

I'm also feeling annoyed. At the flies that have taken over my life. They aren't usually this bad until like July. So why are they crazy gross everywhere? It's like I live in a super dirty house. Oh wait, I do.

I also think it's because I have chickens. And kids. And food everywhere. Ew.

I'm sweaty. And have to go take care of kids. They are in the bath and only long enough for me to write this.

I have his address. Do you want to write him? Send him packages? I want you to. And he does too.

I'm thankful for everyone's support. I love ya all! SO much!

I actually need to write real quick about a person I am so grateful for lately. Her name is Caden (am I allowed to say that out loud?) Anyway, we met at the military ball only a few months ago and became instant friends. Her hubby was/is in the Army with David and we tease them all the time that we haven't met before recently. She's been a blessing. We're both going through this new Army life together and it's been nice to have her. Ugh. So lucky. She also happens to be beautiful so I feel thankful she is even my friend. Cause she's the popular girl at school. You know what I mean?
