See what I freakin mean? I'll do well for a while then completely forget about the blog :(

Update in my life:
Me: I am doing well. Just yesterday I started with my no-soda, drink more water rule. So far it's working well. Yesterday I drank 5 8-oz glasses of water, which is REALLY good for me, as I don't friggin drink water. I am also on a mission to eat better as well as the children too. I'm a notorious chocolate addict and have already begun Matthew on that road. So I'm wanting to get rid of that. Easter was hell. Those kids ate nothing BUT chocolate all day long. In 8 days, I'm moving to NEW YORK. I'm incredibly excited. I love to move. I love new places. And Fort Drum homes have such a GREAT reputation that it just makes me even more freakin' excited! :)

Nick: HE IS MY SPECIALIST PROMOTABLE! Woooo! When he makes his points, he is getting promoted to Sergeant. I'm so very proud of him. He's a hard worker and he's extremely determined to be the very best, not only for himself, but he is definitely working his hardest for the children and me. :) Nick is seriously one of the most respectable men I have ever and I think WILL ever meet in my lifetime. He's so amazing.

Matthew: My monster is becoming more like his daddy each and every day. He is so smart and so funny. He strives daily to make me not only laugh, but try to get me to pee my pants or cry tears of laughter. He usually succeeds. alsfkajsldfkj. Matthew is picking up words so quickly and he is now completely obsessed with Cars. We watch it 3 or 4 times each day and for someone who has had such an ADD nature about him, he sits STILL for almost 2/3 of the movie. It leaves me speechless to see him sit so still. :)

Cambria: Oh goodness, my little troublemaker. She is incredibly smart too, however, she is just as determined in nature as her daddy and this leaves ME to get her off the table ALL DAY LONG. And I mean ALL day long. She likes to take her cereal and throw it on the floor so she can smash it with her feet via tapdancing. But she is a little sweetheart and loves to sit on anyone's lap and "read" books.

That's about all for us :)
YAY. Maybe I'll blog tomorrow...or maybe not. ahahaha.

So my baby daddy (rofl) is on his way back to Iraq. BOO! I miss him already..but I am sort of happy that he is gone b/c the sooner he left to go back, the sooner he gets home.

I am doing horribly at keeping up with this stuff. But that could also be because Nick was here and I didn't want to be on the computer all the time.

The kids have been awful for laying down for a nap. But that's whatever. The kids are trying to transition already with Daddy not being here. :(

I have to take the hold off for base housing in NY. Mkay...welllllll that's all the update I have for right now. I have to go burn confidential shit :)

Morning of...

So supposedly Nick's flight gets here today. I am now officially antsy again. I suspect it will be VERY soon that he'll call. I cannot wait to see him! 

I'm also kinda hoping that it'll be soon, b/c I am very afraid that he will email me from Kuwait or call me from Kuwait and say..I haven't left yet. I'm trying not to get too excited.

It's kind of funny b/c a lot of people were saying maybe he'll surprise you. All I have to say is if he wants to keep his ballsack intact..he'll call me from Atlanta and say come pick me up. LOL. I think he knows better than to do that AND I think that he is way too antsy to see me to NOT have me be the first thing he sees off his plane! Ya know?

*fingers crossed* Let's hope he is almost to the U.S. :)

I've really calmed down a lot. I was really antsy and now I'm just chill. I don't know why I am not still freaking out. But it's nice. I guess I'm GOING to see Nick sometime tomorrow. I am expecting around 6am. He is expecting around 8am and his papers say 1400. BUUUUUT, we think that may be Kuwait time. His company commander, Cpt. Tyner, gave up his seat so Nick could leave Iraq, which is incredibly nice and I cannot wait to meet him and his family to tell them just how much I appreciate it. He seems like a great leader and definitely just proved that his soldiers come first! Nick got to Kuwait late last night and emailed me. His flight was set to leave at 2200..aka 1pm our time. So he should be leaving Germany soon, if not already! :)

I think that may be what has calmed me down. Before it was that he hadn't left Iraq. His flight kept getting cancelled. He was supposed to get on a plane 6:30p Sat our time and it kept getting cancelled over and over again. He finally got on the one at 11:30a Mon, I believe. Now that he is out of Kuwait, I hope. I totally feel relieved. I'm ready to see him. I really am. I'm gonna bawl like there's no tomorrow but I'm going to be so happy.

I am kinda freaking though. Because I have to get dressed and I am HOPING that I don't need to fix my hair or my makeup. I am hoping that it will be at 6 or before so I can NOT have to worry about dragging the kids with me. Oh lord...that's what I am so afraid of. Blehhhh. Do NOT wanna do that. First, it's cold. Second, it takes so long to load them up and unload them. I'll have to pack bottles or pack a snack until breakfast. I'm also worried it'll be in the middle of a nap. Blehhhhh! LOL.

I got Girl Scout cookies today :D I was disappointed b/c I really wanted some. BADLY. YAY FOR THIN MINTS...oh and btw..Edy's Thin Mint ice cream is HEAVENLY! hahaha.

I'm hoping that even while Nick is here, I will keep this blog up. I've done well...so far! :)

P.S. Me booing the "Hurry Up & Wait" policy!

It's finally March!

WOO! Nick is on his way still. It's almost the end of Sunday for him. I'm hoping that he has already left Kuwait. I really am. But he didn't call me yet, so I'm not sure. I didn't go to bed until 2 am b/c I am SO excited and antsy.

Matthew is going to be TWO in just 10 days. Where has my little baby gone? It seems like just yesterday I found out I was pregnant. I cannot believe he is going to be two. Daddy will be here for his birthday and I am excited for that!

I get to meet Amber in 2 weeks! :) I'm really excited for that. She is an amazing person and like me in so many ways. I'm gonna wear my Team Edward shirt so we can match :P If only I could convince the army to PCS David to Ft. Drum! Then us clone families could live by each other and hang out all the time. I think Nick & David will really hit it off. 

That's all for this morning. I'll prolly be up til the crack of dawn again tonight and may have a birth story or something to tell. lol. I think I scared any readers I may have had with my last blog being 8 years long! :D I told you I love to write. Although it was late and there are lots of errors. Like I said Nick gave me his coat when I was coat :( haha. I meant cold.

My First Post :)

So I am very excited to be writing in an itty bitty blogspot! :) I love to write & I don't get to express my thoughts & feelings as much as I would like to. Writing is one of my favorite things to do & it has often been an outlet for me! wOOt! I guess I'll start off with today's happenings.

So...The children are driving me up a wall lately! They can be perfectly well-behaved one second and the next, they are fussy & whiny & angry. Matthew took a sharpie to his sheets and my plastic 3-drawer filing cabinet thing. A bright fuschia sharpie.

I'm about to go nuts. They wake each other up. Matthew crawls in my bed and gets mad at me in the middle of the night for being in it. Or he'll catapult himself into his sister's crib. *sigh* Just a big ball of unneeded stress! Cami is and always has been a spitfire. She has SUCH a temper. If she doesn't get her way, she will full out scream. Just to scream. She is HORRIBLE about taking naps. Matthew, of course, is a week and a half from being two and his attitude is REALLY picking up.

I'm excited to move! I'm excited to have my own stuff and make my own food and take care of my children and sleep in my own bed by myself. I've been cracking down on every aspect of moving. I have called Housing. I have all my stuff that I have here written down on a list. I have a plan of what goes where in my car. I have a diaper bag list. I started a grocery list and I'm just stoked.

I'm very very very excited about upcoming events though! Nick is gonna leave Iraq on SUNDAY! AGHHHH! I'm a whole slew of emotions and I know I am gonna bawl my eyes out when he calls me from Atlanta and I leave to get him in my car; I'm gonna bawl when I get to the airport; I may just have a friggin heart attack when I see him. But I'm just..ohmigod. I cannot even grasp how BIG of a moment it's gonna be when I see him! I get so emotional thinking about that ONE moment. It's going to be perfect. Absolutely perfect. I'm nervous about it too. I feel like I've had a 30 min 4x a week on the phone relationship with him for going on 5 months now and it feels like I'm meeting him for the first time all over again. Or like we JUST started dating. It's going to be hard for me not to be shy, not to want to impress him. I always hear that it is hard for military families to get back into the swing of the family life together, but I honestly don't see that happening to us. I know Nick will jump right in helping and being the great man (father & husband) that he is. I am glad that this deployment happened. It really showed me (as well as Nick) how important our relationship is. How incredible. And how rare. I think it is just the hardest thing we've been put through. It really proves how mature our relationship has become. Ah! I'm just in a state of bliss with the whole thing.

Oh, and "Fortune Favors The Brave"! I was looking for the right title for my blog. I prefer not to disclose my last name and all that kind of crap and I wanted to be original. Sometimes I try too hard, however, I wanted a sweet, short quote to sum up my past, present and future. I think this one fits to a tee! :)

Anyways, *big sigh* I've completed my first blog. I feel GREAT. It's always a relief for me to get things off my chest. And I've rambled enough, so GOOD BYE for now! I'll do my very best to blog tomorrow and the next day and so on and so forth!

P.S. Here's a couple pictures!
