Here comes the rain....

...and by rain I mean tears. Today my husband drives me 14 hours home(got 9 mo left of nursing school grrr), he will be staying Saturday night cause my family is celebrating his birthday then early Sunday morning he is driving back to NC.... (deep sigh) I have loved every moment of the past 2 months with my hubby! I will miss little things like waking up in the middle of the night and feeling his warm body next to me, or just having my best friend around to share funny moments, well really any moment. Ok Ok I am going to stop being so sappy! On a fun little note I got an award from Christina @ Our Okinawa Life  Thank you so much! I am going to pass this award onto:
  • Keep calm and soilder on
  • The Sand is Different here
  • Standing by him
  • Empty Nest PCS and all the rest ( because life IS good )

How do you handle "haters"?

On things have gotten extremely heated lately. There are a group of older women on there that seemed to have an agenda with younger wives.(though I think one got kicked off yesterday and another may have left) Anytime you posted your feelings as someone under 40, you got belittled, shot down, (any phrase of the type will due) I FINALLY said something about it only to get bitched at LIKE WHOA. Many posters posted back saying they agreed how negative things had become and how they had been sitting back ,idle, not posting, or even coming to the site out of fear of being attacked. I tend to be head on about things, but was surprised at how many women were sitting back (perhaps in fear) letting the cyber bullies have their way! Peeking my interest - how do you all handle "haters"

I have a question for you all-

Now that I am married ( best thing that could ever happen to me!) and have been under the same roof as my husband for almost 2 months I have a question- How do you not let the stresses of work, or day to day stuff, become between you. This past week my husband has apparently had alot going on and it gave me a glimpse of how couples (esp military) can drift apart. So as a wife, how do you not let it get to you? or take it personally? or keep things on track, fun and loving?

usual USMC Sunday

much like every Marine my husband HAS to get his hair cut on Sunday, when I am home I do it, always have since before he even joined (saves time and $8...gah if ONLY my haircut was $8) Other than that this lovely day included eating the BEST pizza- Micheal Angelos =) Last night we went bowling with Marines in my husbands unit, one wife was due to have her baby in 2 weeks and the other was a girlfriend and also in the Airforce. Everyone was very nice and they (baby mama excluded) drank way too much- I chose to drive and stay sober. We were out till 0100 and I gotta be honest, my married butt does not want to be out past 10-ever.... most of the guys were young (Josh is 26 and I am 25, the avg age of the guys we were with is 22) and so of course in true 22 year old fashion they were all about getting "hammered" ... The hubs and I just couldn't hang. We decided this morning that we were set on the going out and getting drunk for AWHILE. We just don't have it in us anymore to drink alot, or stay out late- we both did our fair share of partying in college- consider our "wild oats" well sewn.

i hate to run...

I am not a runner, i hate it. It borders on painful for me, but for whatever reason it's something I really wish I was good at. My husband, still in physical therapy for a shattered ankle (6 months ago), can STILL run 5 miles!Before the shattered ankle he could run 13 freakin miles! His PT told him he should work on jogging at home. So we went and I feel so embarassed that after 2 min of jogging I was winded... I was holding my husband back. I felt so out of shape, so lazy. I just dont get it. Am I not breathing right? do I have bad form? whats the freakin problem? I am literally ashamed at how out of breath and slow I am... uggggh. Acknowledging it makes me feel like a loser, ha but I'm gonna work on it!

don't know where it came from...

but I have a LOVE for Chinese art, random I know. But yesterday began my quest on ebay for a few original pieces of Chinese watercolors. It seriously was all I could think about last night when trying to fall asleep. I also woke up with a terrible ear ache, sore throat and swollen right lymph node- what the hell is goin on with me? Tonight I am taking a sleep aid definitely!

my beach day!

omg so perfect! Turned out perfect that we didn't go on Saturday, Sunday was the PERFECT day for the beach- not a cloud in the sky! I got so much sun (the hubs may have gotten a little too much sun)! My lungs got a mega work out from blowing up rafts. Came home, ate pizza, watched a little HGTV together, hubs watched re-run of the World Cup final, then he fell asleep and I watched Army Wives (next week is gonna be a MAJOR tear jerker!!!!) Then I went to sleep as well, lately I have been grinding my teeth at night and always wake up with a headache. I tried the mouth piece and that was a no-go. So if anyone has a remedy PLEASE make me aware! As I type this I am also watching Regis & Kelly. Just sayin...they are so adorable!

my Saturday plans vs. his

well my intentions for our saturday were to go to the beach. The husband's plan? stay home & be lazy, play Guitar Hero & watch recorded episodes of "Top Shot" and "American Choppers". So thats what we've done. (yawn) but tomorrow is def our beach day. The hubs got lucky that NC weather is so randomly crappy-, the weather man SAID thunderstorms after 3pm today, leaving me all for staying in and being lazy- but to be honest it doesnt look like its going to rain, it is ever so slightly overcast- my luck TOMORROW, MY BEACH DAY, will be the day that it storms. Happy Saturday!
