Oh Irene!

Well, I ran away from Irene. What was the point of me staying there anyway when my husband was to be gone for a week and a half? SO, here I am in my home town and spending time with my friends and family. And being showered with baby stuff and maternity clothes lol. I miss my husband like crazy and I am going nuts waiting to find out if everything is okay with our home and car. The worst of what happened was trees down and flooding in my area and I am hoping and praying none of it hit us! I hope everyone else was safe and didn't have anything serious happen!


I only have a million words

I am beyond sad. First we have a small earthquake and now we are preparing for a hurricane. I have decided that God must dislike this side of the country right now. So, the husband is going underway tonight and has told me if they aren't coming back in, I am going to Indiana to be with my family because if they aren't coming back in, that only means something bad is going to happen meaning, pardon the WWE reference, there's a hurricane coming through.

I am currently waiting for him to come home to prepare his bag and spend a couple hours here before I have to take him back to the big ole mean metal beyotch that gets his attention when I need it the most. Some days I just hate her. Of all times a family needs to be together, they are torn apart. Bah. Humbug.

So, it's 10:30 and last night he said he should be home around 10:00. I am going to go ahead and say it. FAIL. I can only guess he got stuck doing something on the ship. The later he gets let off, the less time we will have before he leaves. Oh and for the record, he wont just be underway for the hurricane, they are going to stay underway because they were supposed to go underway for a bit on Monday. So this hurricane has successfully caused him to be gone for 2 1/2 extra days. 2 1/2 extra days that I looked forward to (Lord only knows why because I know better then to look forward to anything). Yes, I am very much in a complaining mood today, so sue me. Whatevs.

The Real Navy Wives


My song this week

Because she is amazing.
Because this song is so intense.
Seriously, one day I cried while I was listening to it because I totally felt her emotions.
Maybe I cried because of the hormones but seriously, this song is SO. DEEP.

p.s. I am almost 9 weeks along now!!! :D

Life as we know it

It's changing. Our whole world is becoming different.

In the past month, 2 of our friends have gotten out of the Navy and moved away. Let me rephrase, 2 of our CLOSE friends. Ryans best friend was one of them. They have known eachother since school in Great Lakes. Ended up being stationed at the same base and they have been close to eachother ever since. Now, he is gone and my poor husband is probably lost in the world.

This month we moved out of our apartment in the ghetto (lol) to our HOUSE in a nice neighborhood. Let's not even mention the little blueberry that is in my belly. Life as we know it is changing.

As you all know, we have been worried sick about Ryans orders for shore duty. After getting screwed over on his final round of picks, his detailer told him to pick orders even though he couldn't apply himself and he would do his best to get him those orders. Well... We are NOT pcsing! Ryan will be stationed right here in good ole Virginia Beach for shore duty and we are so happy!

I guess that's all I got and on paper it doesn't look like a whole lot has changed but it sure does feel like it. The baby alone is a major life changing event! Though I wouldn't trade him or her for anything in the world :)



Some things will never cease to amaze me. I have lost yet another friend over a material possession. Yes, you read correctly, a material possession. Supposedly we put a small crack on the leg of a table my now ex friend let us borrow because she didn't have space for it. She basically cussed me out over it.

Honestly, I don't think she ended our friendship over this. The more people bring it up, the more I wonder if it's true... People keep saying, "maybe she wants to be pregnant and pushed you away because she isn't". It makes more sense to me that way then for her to just go off over a little crack in a 3 or 4 year old table that already had other cracks and dings in it.

It just really breaks my heart to think about the fact that I only have one other person besides my husband to hang out with. Of course, my husband is enough. Of course, my best friend too is a blessing. But, what about when neither of them are available? What then? I get to sit around being pregnant and that is all.

I feel like I want to make more friends. Maybe 1 or 2 more, but it also scares me to think "a year from now this person could leave my life just like the last 2".

I shouldn't be worrying about stuff like this right now, though. I am 6 1/2 weeks pregnant and stress is the last thing I need in my life but I just feel really, genuinely sad. Maybe it's the hormones.
