Basketball and Coffee

I gotta say, after going over a week without coffee, it feels (and tastes!) pretty darn good to be drinking a cup right now. Oh, no cal sweetener and hazelnut creamer, you have brought me so much joy today!!

In about ten minutes I will be heading to my nieces basketball game and I must say, I'm a pretty excited and proud aunt! The 2 of them are playing for the same team I played for when I was in elementary school and I can't wait to see them in action. I want to catch as many of their games as possible while I am here.

Christmas is just around the corner and I have only shopped in my head. I have yet to actually buy anything, just have ideas as to WHAT to buy for WHO. One thing you must know about me is, I am a procrastinator. I procrastinate like it is my job. I have been and quite possibly always will be a procrastinator. The hubby is as well but I don't think he is quite as bad as me. I bought myself a couple Christmas presents yesterday lol. How selfish... Good thing we get paid tomorrow cuz that means I can get at least 2 or 3 people out of the way. I have 12 nieces and nephews to buy for. That is going to tear a pretty giant hole in the pocket book :\
Other then the 12 nieces and nephews I don't have much of a problem. I have the in-laws, my parents and the person I got in the drawing. We have been doing the drawing for a longgggggg time because we have such a big family so the adults draw to see what adult they buy for and so do the kids. The adults are still stuck buying for all them kids though lol. Bah humbug.


Staying up until 3 AM

It used to just happen. Since I have been in Indiana with the family, not so much. Tonight, I have the task of forcing myself to stay awake until 3 because I don't want to miss taking a dose of my antibiotics and I am no longer on the Vicodin mostly because I ran out lol, so I am sleeping through the night and NOTHING wakes me up. How dare I even THINK my alarm would wake me up in the middle of the night last night so I could take it?

Things have been much better with the infection though. I no longer look like A whoo from Whooville. I just look like I have a mild case of chipmunkitus lol. I just can't wait for the infection to be totally gone and be rid of this burden.


Some thingS to be thankful for...

First and foremost, my hubby made rank! Congratulations my wonderful 2 class! I am insanely proud of him! Though they will probably pin him while they are on deployment so not only will I miss his reenlistment ceremony, I will also miss that. Bah humbug.

Today (and always) I am extremely thankful for my family. My sister Shelley, my dad and my mom have really come through for me the past couple of days as I have had THE WORST toothache I can ever remember having. My mom called the dentist today to see if they could call in a prescription for me as I have a terrible infection in my tooth. It feels as though there are TWO absesses. All of the offices are closed until Monday for the Turkey Day weekend so I wasn't able to get in to actually get work done so the nurse called in an antibiotic and Vicodin for me. THANK YOU! Lol.

Andddddd that's all I got right now. Typing just isn't on my list of things to do right now. It's a very short list: Eat (possibly), drug myself and sleep. The pain is unbearable.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


Coming to you live...

From my LAPTOP. Thank the lord, it came today!

Goodness, ya'll don't even know what is going on in my life right now! I got to Indiana last Wednesday to spend the holidays with my family. I went into the place I worked at before I moved to Virginia and they offered me a seasonal part time job. I agreed to the job but really didn' think I was rehireable so I filled the ap out and shrugged my shoulders. I didn't quit on good terms. I didn't put my 2 weeks in so what were the odds that they would rehire me? Well, they called me today in the middle of my booking the venue for the big wedding/reception and I called them back and was asked to come into work today! I about pooped myself lol. This job is going to be awesome for me. Not only will it give me something to do with my time other then sitting around watching the hours as they pass by, but it will also give me extra Christmas money and I am SO thankful right now words cannot possibly express.

Ryan and I are doing great, of course. I have been doing pretty good if I don't say so myself. Of course I complain on occasion but what wife in her right mind WOULDN'T complain having to be away from her husband for so long?

On a sad note, I have something wrong with my wrist and I am going to have to call my PCM tomorrow to see about seeing a Dr here in Indiana. I haven't even been to my PCM yet lol. Here's hoping he can refer me to someone here so Tricare will cover it because I can't take the pain in my wrist for much longer. A few people including myself think it may be tendenitus. Talk about lame.

That's me in a nutshell as of late. Still remaining positive while missing Ryan but soon enough I won't have to miss him anymore and I just can't wait!


As a military wife

*start rant* I feel as though it doesn't matter how long you have been with someone or married to someone in the military. When our men are gone we all miss them just the same. I feel like I have EVERY RIGHT to complain and say that I miss my husband and if anyone dares to tell me differently, I will kindly remove them from my life. I recently ran into a civilian "friend" who basically said I have no right to miss my husband because we haven't even been married a year yet. Really? What the HELL would you know about missing your husband? I am pretty sure the only time she has been away from her husband was for MAYBE a week and it was by choice. After she sent me this nasty message on facebook, she blocked me so I couldn't respond to her even if I wanted to. I just think that "friends" should be there for their friends when they are in need rather then critisizing them for being sad because they haven't even SEEN their husband in 3 months. *end rant*

Thanks for listening to my vent for the day lol.


Dear walmart.com and/or FedEx

Enough is stinking enough! How is it that my husband ordered my laptop from you October 29th and I have yet to get it?! Walmart.com rep, we appreciate the fact that we will be getting a refund if I don't get my laptop today HOWEVER, that isn't what we wanted. We wanted me to get the laptop hence why it was ordered in the first place. I have pretty much had it up to here with the waiting game.
