Elliott and I just got back from a four day camping adventure with my family.
We came home just in time to see Scott who has been away for TWO WEEKS!
This is the one thing I didn't feel like I could talk about here, because, well, what if some crazy posessed reader of mine actually found out where I lived and could, like, stalk me while Scott was away or something?!?!
I know, none of you are crazy like that, but I still didn't feel like blasting it all over the interwebz.
But, now that Scott is home, I can :)
He had to go to two weeks of training for the National Guard, leaving me and Ellie to fend for ourselves. We survived just fine, but I think towards the end of last week it was wearing on both of us.
So heading into a camping trip probably wasn't the best idea. But we survived that, too.
I'll recap our camping adventures tomorrow. Today I just want to get out some thoughts that are in my head. Some things that have probably been keeping me from really blogging lately........
~I really, really missed my husband the last two weeks. As busy as he is with working full time and going to school full time, it really is different when he's here.
~Ellie really, really missed her daddy the last two weeks. That, or she's teething. Or she's coming down with the chickenpox. Or, or......a combination of all of the above. Needless to say, she's been a peach to hang out with. Kidding.
~I cannot wait for my husband to graduate. He has one year left of school, and I am counting down the days!! I feel like our life can really "begin" once he's out of school.
~I wish we could win the lottery. Or something. I know, I'd have to actually buy a ticket first. But sometimes I really miss the good ol' days when I could shop for whatever I want, whenever I wanted to. The days when Scott and I could actually afford to buy each other gifts for birthdays and anniversaries or take fun trips.
~I really wish I was creative enough to think of fun things to do without spending tons of money (that we don't have anyway)
~Scott is getting out of the Military for good in September. I know it's a good thing, but it has always been a source of security for us. Okay, it's always been a nuisance, but sometimes it provided security, you know?
~I really, really wish I could be a stay-at-home-mom. I don't know why, but it's hitting me hard lately! Summertime is hard for us in the childcare department, and paying for childcare is always hard. If somehow I could just find a way to be paid to stay at home with my daughter......
~Did I mention Ellie has been a peach lately?! I really, really hope this nap lasts three hours or something.
~I pretty much suck at dieting. I'm trying, and I'm also trying to stay positive. But I looooove food! I know that I need to let myself have breaks every once in a while, but those breaks often turn into 3-4 day junk-food binges. I seriously wish I had some self control!
~I really wish that we could afford a maid service. Today. My house is a disaster and I don't even know where to start! I'll probably just avoid it for another week, hoping it will just clean itself! Ha!
Okay, I seriously didn't mean for this to turn into one big long rant. Sorry.
I just have a lot on my mind and if I can't be honest here, where can I be?! I know that life isn't always rainbows and cupcakes......but wouldn't a cupcake taste really, really good right about now?!
