Bedtime comes so fast now … I’m not complaining – don’t get me wrong here, just worth mentioning. The past 2 days have FLOWN by, which is wonderful (I must thank my friend for all she’s doing to keep Xander and I busy, you know who you are!) Even on the days that we don’t get out of the house for more then a little bit to run errands the days go by quick. The house is neat (thanks Mom!) and slowly being packed (I have enough time to organize and pack, not just throw things into boxes). The past 2 days Xander has gone to bed really easily (which I of course appreciate). My creative juices are flowing around my brain and I have so many projects in mind I don’t even know WHERE to start! My item on eBay is actually being BID on which is super DUPER exciting! I’ve never sold anything on eBay before, and I figured I would start with all the candle goods that are taking up a crazy amount of space in my closet. All in all it’s been a good couple days. Nice.
I should stop listening to the “50 First Dates” soundtrack. It’s making me weepy. I have an hour and a half until my eBay auctions (that I am bidding on) are over. Xander didn’t fall asleep until close to 9pm after fighting with me for the better part of 2 hours. It’s been a helluva day!
*chugs some OJ + Vodka*
I’m walking around the house aimlessly … I think it’s finally settling in that Alan’s gone, my parents have left, and it’s just me and Xander (well, and Samson the Great KILLER DOG! RAR!). Xan and I have been playing with cars and his trains; coloring; dancing; cleaning; ect. It’s almost time for me to wrangle him into the tub for his bath. I’m just .. gah, I guess I’m just already bored. I need to figure out what to DO during this deployment!
Alan has left the building! He drove away on Saturday … This won’t be a long separation, but it still stinks. But such is life right? Life in the military at least … Goals for this separation include packing for our MOVE/PCS in November, getting organized, getting organized and begin preparations to start eBay business (among other monetary endeavors) and visiting all my friends before we move!!
I’m okay this time. The last deployment was SO difficult. This one seems okay – I already know what to do, I already have the money under control … I think this one will be okay.
I keep messing with the air conditioning. I’m trying to find a happy medium between “I’m Effin’ COLD” and “Whew! It’s HOT in here!” … The problem is, when I turn the air colder it’s at the end of a cleaning spree and I hit the air as I’m walking into the computer room to sit on the ol’ass for a minute. A minute turns into a half hour as I find more and more military blogs to read (I have a search on Google going) and I lose myself in CinCHouse for a moment. I then realize that I’m COLD and I get up to adjust the air and I see something that needs to be done (or it’s time to reboot the laundry. that never seems to end. ever.) and I get working again, only to realize that I’m now HOT. Blah. Hubby is trying to get Toddler to bed and Toddler doesn’t want to hear it. Except that, only 2 hours ago, Toddler was falling asleep on the couch. Silly Toddler. Just go to SLEEP!! I wasn’t hungry when I made Hubby dinner earlier (we’re out of things I feel like cooking, so tonight was Chef Boy-Ar-Dee … poor hubby …). I’m hungry NOW though of course – so I’m thinking of hitting Taco Bell. Not that my checkbook can handle it – nor my ass. Oh well … he’s leaving soon, so might as well spend it now, right? I saved soooo much money last time he was gone, lol … Again, poor hubby! You deploy to Iraq for 6 months and come back home to a wife who has lost interest in cooking and serves you fast food or Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee every night. He’s not gonna wanna come home next time! (He’s already got chocolate cheesecake in mind … sheesh)
Well, it’s hot again, and I have to figure out what Chalupa I want to order. Cheers!
