Subject:WOW - it has been SOME TIME....
Mood: exhausted

I've read through journals every chance I've gotten which is not far enough!

Life has been SO BUSY!

My hubby finally advanced! Much deserved he's now a E-7 in the Navy - the transition is killing us though! Approximately 4 weeks and counting down until the hardest part is over!

Besides that ...work and just keeping the house in SOMEWHAT of a decent appearance has almost consumed me! I miss all my LJ pals and hope all is well! Everyone that reads this please reply with a brief update of how life is treating them and all that I have missed in the past couple months!

Subject:I NEED A QUICK FAVOR - will only take a second

A friend of mine sent me a email -

Our city is in a competition to become Hockeyville. We need all the votes we can get.
If you could take a minute and cast your vote for Prince George, in the Pacific division at this website, I'd really appreciate it!


I'd appreciate it if you could go there real quick and vote for her.

All you have to do is enter a email address and pick PRINCE GEORGE

Thanks in advance -

Mood: Overwhelmed & Depressed

I feel like I'm on a roller coaster and I can't get off!

Life has been totally hectic and crazy for me for the past few months.

Hubby's Grandfather passed away in January - we went home for the services - a quick 4 day trip. We came home and with trying to get the kids caught up on school work - us both getting caught up on work...etc...in Febrary ( IT HINK ) Greg went out of town for a week to Millington, TN. ( This is where Ryan was born - our first duty station/house together...etc. )

The day before he's due to come home - his Grandmother passed away. He was home for less than 12 hours before I was taking him to the airport. The kids and I didn't go this time...it is just so hard pulling them out of school for any ammount of time. Plus, Greg wanted to fly - if he had driven I wouldn't have let him go alone on a 8 hour road trip after just learning that he lost Grandma. I was so sad that I couldn't be there -

His Grandparents were the most amazing couple I've ever known. They were married a couple mths short of 62 years. Grandpa battled alzheimers for his last few years...but Grandma is the one person he never forgot. The story leading up to his passing is amazing....soulmates til the very end. Grandma and Grandpa never spent a Anniversary apart that their 9 kids knew of and Grandma passed away 2 days before what would have been their 62nd Anniversary. She actually passed away a hour or so short of being exactly 2 mths after Grandpa.

Then there is the kids in Boy Scouts - T-Ball - Baseball - Teen Youth Group - work - housework - I have no time for anything anymore. I was bowling once a week too....this pass Tuesday was my last night of that.

I have gained a few lbs but nothing major.....HOWEVER, I am so NOT TONED and HATING MYSELF! Yesterday I walked 3 miles with my boss after we got home from work. ( my boss is my neighbor ) I am determined to be bathing suit worthy before the Pools Open.

I'm rambling

Just wanted to let anyone on my list who may have read this know...I DO STILL READ YA =o) I just don't always have the time to comment.

Hope everyone is well

It may feel like you're just chasing your tail, but hang in there -- the situation is going to stabilize very soon. In fact, when everything shakes out, things are going to be much brighter than you would've expected.

Subject:I am SOOOOOOOOO not ready for Christmas....

Well..my kiddos are taken care of for the most part. I guess that is the most important part - but, I haven't bought for anyone else. *sighs* I just wish I had a wishlist from our parents - life would be so much easier!

I'm thinking of a GC for a nice dinner somewhere for My Mother-In-Law and her husband....the same for my Dad and his wife.

My Mom is the hardest part and I still haven't heard from her =o(

Is everyone else finished buying?

Everyone keeps asking me what I want - I want tons of things but can't think of one of them! I only know I want them because I know I always pick something up and put it back because I don't want to spend too much and I'd rather buy something for someone else...now, if only I'd write down what they were at the time I'd have a huge WANTS LIST! LMAO

Subject:Ugh - this damn tummy virus....
Mood: sick

Thursday at 11 O'clock I had settled in bed when I heard a thump of feet hitting the floor and running to the bathroom. It was my poor lil' Ian - he threw up all night long. I disinfected everything - he missed school the next day. Come to find out 14 kids out of the 19 in Ians class were out on Friday. It didn't end here! We had soccer games for all 3 kids on Saturday and then afterward had two conflicting end of the year parties - I took Ian and Kylee and Greg took Rye. On the way home - Kylee upchucked her pizza in the back seat of our truck! UCK - she was sick all evening and into Sunday. Once again I thought it had passed and then Monday it hit Rye. TUESDAY it hit me! Gawd - Moms aren't suppose to get sick!!!! I'm still not feeling my best today but life goes on! Cross your fingers that this passes fast and that it is DONE with our household.

I am still alive and reading journals =o) I just haven't had time to reply to everyone with working, soccer practices/games, league bowling, homework with the kids..etc. The good news is SOCCER IS DONE - Basketball & cheer doesn't start until January so I MIGHT get time to catch my breath and post a little more!

Happy Hump Day

Subject:Something I ran across...

1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return. But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel, and then regret it.

2. Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

3. Love is when you take away the feeling, the passion, and the romance in a relationship and find out that you still care for that person.

4. A sad thing in life is, you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be, and you just have to let go.

5. When the door of happiness closes, another opens. But often at times we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

6. The best kind of friend is the kind whom you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you have ever had.

7. It is true that we do not know what we have until we lose it, but it is also true that we do not know what we have been missing until it arrives.

8. Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back. Do not expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart. But if it does not, be content that it grew in yours.

9. There are things you would love to hear that you would never hear from the person whom you would like to hear them from; but do not be so deaf as not to hear it from the one who says it from his heart.

10. Never say goodbye if you still want to try. Never give up if you still feel you can go on. Never say you do not love a person anymore if you cannot let go.

11. Love comes to those who still hope although they have been disappointed, to those who still believe although they have been betrayed, to those who still love although they have been hurt before.

12. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone. But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

13. Do not go for looks; they can deceive. Do not go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Hope you find the one that makes you smile.

14. There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real! Hope you dream of that special someone.

15. Dream what you want to dream. Go where you want to go. Be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and only one chance to do all the things you want to do.

16. May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy.

17. Always put yourself in other's shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person, too.

18. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck a life. A timely word may level stress. A loving word may heal and bless.

19. The beginning of love is to let those we love just be themselves and not twist them with our own image. Otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

20. The happiest of people do not necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

21. Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried; for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.

22. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a tear.

23. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past. You can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

24. When you were born, you were crying, and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling, and everyone around you is crying.

Subject:Hmmm...todays horoscope

As your vision expands today, you could miss important details or gloss over data that you don't have time to integrate. Even if the advice you receive from friends is unsolicited, listen carefully, for it can help you gain needed clarity. And if you don't get this assistance, don't be afraid to ask for it. You need your reality checked by someone who can see things objectively.

Subject:Dreams do come true.....

MINE DID! Six years ago I was holding my healthy Baby Girl in my arms!

Kylee Madison was born on July 19th at 2:36 a.m.

I always knew after the relationship I had/have with my own Mother - from the time I was a little girl I dreamed of having a little girl of my own someday! I have two incredibly gorgeous and smart boys. I wouldn't trade them for a million and one girls. However, my life would have never felt complete without my very own Princess! She is truly everything I ever dreamed of and SO MUCH MORE! Sometimes it is a bit scary to think of what the future may bring with her and raising her in todays society - but I'm gonna take one day at a time and enjoy every second of it - she's growing up so fast!


Happy Birthday Kylee Madison - Mommy loves you tons and tons!

Subject:Bad news from home - oh so sad..........


Ryan is my Fathers Step-Grandson - but he's been with my Stepmother since before Ryan was born so he's like more than STEP-Family -

Ryan is a great kid - and is very close to my Father - helps him out and keep him young. I hope they catch the F*CKER who did this!
He is currently in a coma and will need plastic surgery if he comes out of this alive. This picture was taken over the 4th of July a couple years ago - he's holding his baby Sister.

Please keep Ryan in your thoughts.
Thank you

What a day this one turned out to be!

I'm tired - I worked with my boss today in cleaning! We cleaned a Summer Rental Condo that sleeps 18 people. Then we went and cleaned five 2 bedroom/2 bath timeshare apartments. We finished them all in about 4 hours that includes the 45 minutes it took us to drive from the condo to the apartments. Not too shabby - made a quick extra $100 bucks =o)

After that I came home and cleaned my house a little and then took the kiddos to the pool!

Then home to fix dinner - now I'm doing laundry and cleaning some more in my house! It really never ends! *sighs*

I AM SO TIRED - the key is to KEEP GOING cause' if I stop I think I'll drop!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
