Josh is in France. Their ship pulled in there for a port call and then they will continue across the Atlantic to Virginia. He was able to
Facetime yesterday and I proudly showed him some of the things I have been working on in the house. ...
My baby shower is next weekend. I am nervous. I don't really know why. I bought what I think will be a cute dress, but I haven't tried it on yet. I may just wear my normal leggings and tank with a vest or something. Dresses are hard.
After deployment...It's not what you think
Josh will be home in approximately 3 weeks. It feels very strange. I don't feel excited yet, just a little anxious.
I need to explain something though to you guys because I've avoided sharing it in this journal....mostly because...
I got quite a few nice emails and texts yesterday. Thank you. It meant a lot to know other people were feeling the same way...or at least have felt that way and understand.
Wednesday is my re-charge day. I think I've told you that before. I always...
My mood seems down.
I really can't say why. I think the obvious choice would be hormones.
Circumstances don't seem to be the culprit because we are rounding the corner for the last lap of deployment. That is a super happy thing.
I'm also rounding the corner of...
I've had a rough few nights sleep. I guess this is typical at 8 months plus pregnant, but I don't remember it from my other pregnancies. Last night, I decided to turn the heat off completely and the house cooled way down. I slept so much better.
This morning, I could...
I kept my promise.
Last week I told you I was committing to a phone free hour immediately after wake up....every morning. My phone was highjacking my mornings and effecting my mood and energy.
So far, I have been true to that promise. The first few days were...
Yesterday was my 32 week check-up. I impressed the entire class by balancing a full cup of water on my baby bump shelf. We were joking that I was "all belly" and I wanted to show just how distinct it was. I definitely earned the cool preggo party trick...
Today is my 32 week pregnancy checkup. I have another appointment in 2 weeks and another 2 weeks from that.
And then guess what week it is?
36 weeks....AND the week Josh gets home from his 7 month deployment.
3 appointments until Josh is home.
Lately I'm out of breath all the time. Of course when I exercise. But also when I tie my shoes, walk up stairs, pick up Bonny and even do the dishes. lol
Factor allergy season in the mix and I feel like I can hear myself breathing from a mile away. I'm like a...
How much stuff do you have?
It's 7:01. I haven't touched my phone yet. The minute Bonny woke me up with her little puppy whines, I had the urge to reach for it. I ignored the urge. Day 1- winning.
It is terrible weather this morning. The boys each have a...
Loose phone morals?
I thought about my "perfect morning" homework. I came to the conclusion that my routine is already ok...I don't anticipate adding 20 min of sunrise meditation anytime soon....or becoming a Pinterest mom and having clothes and lunches set out by the...
