Quick update. The plumbing situation is fixed.  Monday morning they came and pumped the clog from the septic system, fixed something with the filter, and now there is no disgusting poop water in my shower.

Check.

Josh will either be home very late tomorrow night or...

Poo Party

 

I hope all of the moms had a great Mother's Day.  I think in order for me to keep a positive outlook, I probably need to re-evaluate what counts as a great Mother's Day.

I got to spend an hour sitting on my porch with my mom.  That was nice.  My boys gave me cards...

Mother's Day Simple

 

It's Mother's Day.  I'm sitting on the couch wrapped in a nice blanket, drinking coffee.  It is cloudy and I am grateful because I got super sun burnt on Friday, then I overheated on Saturday watching the kids' football games.   I wore pants to cover...

Baby camping....

 

I finally slept a little better.  I opened a window and it cooled my room off a lot.  Although temperature is a factor, I truly think anticipation is the disrupter of my sleep.  Josh will be here this time next week.  Worse case he will...

beach body....

 

Yesterday I spent a few hours in the sun.  I took my computer and my phone out to my back deck and did my afternoon work in a bikini top and shorts.  Goal was to get a little tan so I am not so pasty white when Josh gets home next week.

I was doing a good job...

All of a sudden, the days are moving quickly.

In my head everything is still far away...Josh's return...baby girl's arrival.
But those major events aren't hundreds of days away anymore.  Josh will be back at the end of next week...and I am 35 weeks pregnant today.

Sunday was...

Like a bridge...

 

I have continued with my phone promise.  Every morning, I am phone-free for 1 hour.   The habit is starting to stick.  Sometimes I think about getting it to listen to a podcast or something, but then I don't.  I know that will be the beginning of...

Mower fail

 

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

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...

Karate Kid

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...

Magic

 

This weekend had some frustrating moments.  My boys were impossible on Friday and Saturday... and Sunday morning I found out we would have 3 less days of post deployment leave with Josh.  I'll spare you the details, but 3 days less after 7 months apart definitely felt like...

Turn turn turn...

 

I am sitting on the couch...drinking coffee...trying not to sneeze.  It is allergy season and as beautiful as the flowers and trees are... I am allergic to pollen.

If I sneeze, I will likely spill coffee on my macbook and pee myself.  The slam dunk of...
