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.

Update time!!

Well I figured it was time to bless everyone with an update. Things here are, for lack of better words, interesting. Elijah has had his first set of tubes and stitches. Kale is actually starting to fight back when Elijah tries to take something from him and the both somehow changed the answering machine to speak spanish instead of english. Aaahhhh the joys of having boys!!!

Elijah fell and hit his mouth on the toybox so off we went to the ER. Blake was on duty that night so I called to let him know what had happened. Of course he came to the ER to check it out for himself, and in true Army form, his Staff Sergeant promptly chewed him out for it. I get a kick out of every time I see something on TV about how the military supports their families cause the families support their soldiers. HORSE SHIT! All we are considered is extra baggage that gets in the way.

Kale is doing awesome and will be headed to Granny and Pop's house before too long for a visit. A teacher's assistant from his class has been coming and babysitting here and there for us. Its good for us, but Kale is still trying to charm her out of makin him work(just like a man).

I have come to a huge crossroads in my life and have no idea what to do. If anyone has a road map I would greatly appreciate it! I dont know what to do and no matter what I choose someone will not be happy with it. I just wish I had a little help in making some decisions. ugh its so frustrating at times!! There hasn't been much going on that I care, or am willing to talk about. I find myself closing off to the world more and more every day........oh well. I guess that is about all for now. Blake will be home this weekend for a day, he is at WLC(warrior leader course) and will graduate July 22. I am off to fix the kids a snack then finish some laundry. Peace out!

Well, I can try to help you make decisions but I suck at it myself so I don't know how much good it will do. I am pretty sure I know what you are trying to decide and only you will be able to make that decision. I know that absolutley none of this helped you at all so I guess I will just shut up and leave you alone...

I like Step would love to help you with decision making, but have a tough time myself. I am thinking about you!

Well, speaking from lots of experience.......You have to do what is best for you AND the boys. But Steph is right, only you can make that decision, what everyone else says is just their opinion and they really do not know what they would do unless they have been in the exact same place you are - which is very few people. So think long and hard because this decision will affect you and the boys the REST of your lives. I love you!
