A day in the Life of a Soldiers girl

so the title really dosnt fit anything i felt like talking about..haha, but im in a mood...i realized this morning that i forgot to post Halloween pics, as i said i would...so here are a few..

the big green guy is the boys dad..he walked around on stilts all night...my feet and legs were hurting by the time i was done walking, i cant imagine how his were feeling...the boys enjoyed the attention from it all...lol...a good time was had my all..

after they went with their dad, i headed to the bar...the band was great! i loved it...i danced, and choked on other peoples smoke all night long..ok, so the smoke part wasnt the greatest, but i guess we have to pay for having fun right! on the way home, my moms jeep broke...a ball joint..thank goodness it happened as she was pulling out of a parking lot instead of minutes earlier when we were going 60mph...

Last saturday i spent drowning myself with water to try and get all that smoke out of my system..yeah, didnt work so well...i ended up with a sinus infection...its been a fun week..i started feeling better by sunday, but Monday all hell broke loose with it and i slept all day on Tuesday..by Wednesday i was feeling better, but very dizzy..stupid sinuses! Stupid smoke..lol Honeslty i think my body was just in shock from getting out of the house...

This weekend are are doing a lot of nothing...I have been on a cleaning frenzy for the last 2 days...its making the house look nice..so no complaining there...im trying hard to get the bedroom organized and put together...i think i have a handle on all the school work the kids keep bringing home...with 4 boys in school, i seem to be drowning on papers...and i cant decide which ones to keep, and which to toss....im so sentimental when it comes to that stuff...but it leaves me ina sea of papers...The boys rooms have some organization to them now, so that makes it easier...and the boys are enjoying their rooms more...

So, Nicks visit is getting closer...i cant believe in 10 days it will be a year since i seen him...this deployment has been an experience i dont wish to repeat! we have done well with it...but im ready for the next part of our lives....After his midtour leave, he really dosnt have too much longer...Thank the Gods for making it later in the deployment! i think i would have been a huge mess if his leave would have been sooner rather then later...The next time i say goodbye it will only be for a short time...ok, well short for us anyway..lol...and it will be the last time! its been 2.5 years of separation, and im ready to have him home...We have some great things planned while he is home, and i cant wait for that...I am trying not to get too excited, but i cant help myself...Right now i think it just seems like a dream...

So the weather got really cold all the sudden! it was 70 last week, and in the 30's this week...what a shock to the system...guess that means i have to stay inside and clean more! haha, oh well...its that time of year anyway...im just not looking foreward to digging myself out all winter..

Hey Tara, first I have to tell you I love the pic. Salute to the boys' dad for walking around on the stilts all night ~ I couldn't do it, I have a terrible fear of heights but also am clumsy, I probably would have fallen!

So happy to know your Nick will be home soon. How wonderful it will be if Obama can pull off getting our troops all home in the next 16 months so you can finally have your life together back. Great news!!!
