I should probably update my blog but the only thing I could think of writing about are all my complaints and I did not want to burden you with them. Then I thought oh what the pooh it may be better if I just get it all out. SO the number one complaint on my list these days is that we have STILL not moved into our new house. Our move in date has been pushed back 4 times now due to people slacking at their jobs. The latest and hopefully final date we have been given is Halloween day. This is not going over with our kids at all. You see it has been over a month since ALL of our stuff has been packed and waiting. We are living out of a suitcase where I had set aside about 5 outfits each and everything else has been packed. The kids have one or two toys that were left out and they are starting to get really bored. You know what happens when kids get bored! I have 4 desks, an armoire, a couch, two dressers, a night stand,4 bar stools,a book shelf, a side table, 2 TV's and about 30 boxes piled up in my living room right now. There is a very narrow twisted path going through the living room, and as you can imagine my expanding belly and butt barely make it through. So needless to say I am at the end of my rope living amongst all this kaos. My daughters homeschool supplies are in a card board box on top of the washing machine, and she does her school on our outdoor patio table which is serving as our kitchen table right now. For those of you who know me, you know that I cannot stand when my house is not presentable, and I dread waking up to it every day. So that is that.
Next to top things off and put me in an even better mood, I am on day 9 of a terrible head cold. I have stuffy nose, headache, soar throat, and cough. Things are strating to look up on that end and the mucus has been minimal as of yesterday.
Ben's boss at work is being a jerk about Ben's second job and is throwing the "your first priority is the military" card at him. Well actually his FIRST priority is HIS FAMILY and unfortunately the military pay just does not cut it! He claims that we are choosing to live a lavish lifestyle.......HA HA HA Yes those two brand new cars in our driveway, and the trips we take every month, and that huge mansion we live in, I mean come on give me a break! If our life is lavish I would really hate to see skid row. We are comfortable, yes, but there is definitely nothing lavish or extreme in our lifestyle. I hate those military guys who are more dedicated to their jobs then their family.
As I anticipate the birth of our daughter, it also comes with the fear of knowing that Ben is going to deploy just a few weeks after. The thought of him being gone for 4 months and me mothering 4 children alone is truly frightening! What happens when I get the flu and can barely get out of bed? You know that always happen when they leave. Or when all the kids get sick and they are simutaniously throwing up. I only have so many hands and can only clean up so much vomit at once. And say everyone stays healthy, I still have to take all of them to the grocery store once a week, and any other errands that need doing. Why have they not invented a shopping cart that holds 4 kids and all your groceries???
I think all this stress has been wearing on me b/c the other day I had to go to the DR for 4 different ailments. The Dr comes in and asks what is wrong and I list my problems and tell him to pick one. I feel like my body is falling apart on me. One of them is what seemed like a swollen gland from my cold but it turns out there is not a gland there and they were clueless as to what it could be. I guess I am just a freak of some sort. Any way I am on antibiotics, and I go back in a week to get rechecked.
Well I guess that is enough venting for one day! If anyone has any good news I would love to hear about it. I am tired of getting bad news lately! Hope everyone is doing better then I am!
