The Family
This is us about 6 hours after Elijah arrived. I'm happy because the phenergan had worn off and no I'm not on pain meds here.

Long overdue update!!

For those of you who aren't in the know the boys and I have arrived in Ft Sill. The house is unpacked, except for 5 boxes, and we are awaiting Blake's arrival sometime next week, hopefully. I knew coming here would be bring relief and challenges. First major challenge was me changing the plug on the washer. WARNING IF YOU HAVE TO PEE, DO IT NOW BECAUSE YOU MAY PISSING YOURSELF READING THIS NEXT PART. So, our dryer is a 3 prong plug and the plug in the house if 4 prong. One of the movers told me how to change the plug out. So, Heather and myself along with Elijah and Wyatt set off to Lowe's. I found the plug and I must say the appliance guy looked SHOCKED when I told him I was going to change it out. So, he told me step by step instructions. The next morning I grab the tool box and set out to change the plug.....all went well and when I plugged the dryer in it worked!! So, of course, I patted myself on the back and said to myself huh who needs a man. I noticed this one green wire wasn't plugged in, nor did it have a spot to plug in. I said huh must be a spare wire. WRONG!!! I put the door thingy back over the wires and it shocked the PISS out of me. It threw me back into the wall, sparks flew, singed my nails and fingers. About that time my cell phone rings and I struggle to get to my feet. It was Heather saying her brother was coming to town and would change the plug out for me. Needless to say I guess I was still in shock, no pun intended, and she asked if I was drunk. Once she figured out I was ok, and laughed her ass off, she told me to call maintenance. So, that afternoon the guy came and changed the plug out for me. Evidently the spare green wire, isn't a spare. Its a ground wire or something and that is what shocked the living daylights out of me. I say oh well I won't do that again.....LESSON LEARNED. He said its a good thing this is a 210 outlet(I think) cause a 11o would've killed you. I just kinda laughed. DISCLAIMER: Elijah was in bed asleep when this happened but the loud POP woke him up. and Kale got here last Wednesday and mom and I unpacked boxes like mad women. I must say I am pretty happy with the house. The boys have alot of room to play, or destroy as I call it, and roam around like they own the place. Elijah's new favorite toy is a dishwasher and LOVES playing in Granny's. Much to his delight we have a dishwasher in our new house. Kale LOVES the low carpet, its so much easier for him to get around on. I like living on post better than I thought I would....everything you need is right here. Mom says its like living in a prison I tell her its called security. I love the fact of actually having another adult, Heather, to talk to during the day.....what a relief for the both of us. And since the guys are gone we take turns cooking dinner.......honestly there is probably a rumor going around about the 2 lesbians down the street haha Other than that I am just working on getting mine and Blake's room and bathroom put together. The boys bathroom and bedrooms are already up and going so now its time for ours.

Please say an extra prayer for Blake that he makes it to the States without any problems. I guess I need to get off my butt and cook some dinner. Peace out homies!

A New Begining

Well here comes another new start. Things have changed so much since last Friday. I got news that I am needed at Ft Sill so the boys and I are headed back to Oklahoma!! YAY!!!! We will meet the movers Monday and start getting moved into the new house! I have literally done a months work in a week-I'm exhausted and I am not even begining to be done. I am so excited that Kale will get to go to a good school and they are excited to be having him back. They have already called me 3 times this week saying they are ready for him...haha That school truly is wonderful!! Before you ask, no I didn't get mad and run off, I just can't discuss the particulars but please know everyone is safe and healthy-its all good. I really can't wait!! For the first time in my life I really feel like I fit in out there. I know what you are thinking, when I first got there I HATED it. Oklahoma takes ALOT of getting use to-trust me it does, but its not so bad. I have learned I like my distance from my family. I love them, but hell give a girl a break. I can actually make it thriugh this world without people dictating my every move.

Blake and all of the guys are doing fine and are safe. Just ready to see him on his R&R which should be in 2 weeks or so.....give or take a few days. I am so excited that he will get to see our new house! I am even more excited that he will be here for Elijah's first birthday-God willling! Even though I am stressed to the max trying to get everything done, I am so excited I am about to soil myself. I don't know what the house looks like, but I have seen some pictures and floor plans. I don't know how long we will be at Ft Sill, but I know it will be at least another year or so. Elijah doesn't know it yet, but he is about to be introduced to daycare-momma needs a break! I am thinking once maybe twice a week at the most, since I don't work, but I need a break. If you ever get to wondering if you really like your husband send him away for a few months-that will show you just how much he does.....even though us women say men never do anything! I know I say that too!

Honestly I am just looking forward to adult conversation.....I honestly think I have forgotten how to carry on an adult conversation, but I am fluent in baby babble!! COME ON R&R!!! Now that R&R is right around the corner time is dragging by and that just isn't fair!! Yes I am pouting!!! Whats it to ya?? Well when Blake gets in country for his R&R I will let everyone know so that you know he is safe....his time will be limited, but cherished all the same.

I don't know when we will be back for a visit, but it will be sometime after deployment, sometime this summer. I mean I have been here for 6 months and haven't seen hardly anyone, so it won't really be that different. Well I am off to fix a glass of wine, pack some boxes, and relax.....yes I know its late, but it has to get done. Thank you for all of your prayers for Blake and the rest of the soldiers. Peace out!

About to Blow My Top

So, Friday morning I get the best news possibly known to man-bottom line is I need to be moved to Ft Sill by the end of the month. This is great!! Until family puts a damper on things. I have been asked what is the hurry........why not wait......All that has happened since I moved back is everyone leaving me high and dry. Family said move back here so we can help out, I'm still waiting on that help. I am to the point where I am like fuck everybody.....people seriously wonder why we don't come back to visit more often. When you need people the most, that is when they leave you high and dry, with the exception of a couple of people.....and I stress COUPLE of people. So around Jan 14th the boys and I, complete with a UHAUL trailer, will be heading back to OK. I am so excited!!!! I can't wait to leave all of this negativity behind!! Its like some people are pissed cause I can actually take care of my imagine that. When I can give out more details I will, just know that this is a very exciting time so if you have something negative to say-FUCK OFF!
