We got Orders!!

Kenny got ELT. Which is electronic lab thech, he'll pretty much be a chemist, help keep stuff from coroding on the ship and such. It a 14 week school here so we are staying in SC. Its not staff like we were hoping but he can put in for staff again after ELT school and we can hope for it then. Solease keep fingers crossed we get staff. It would make things a lot better for the first little bit of Baby Bears life.

 

All is going well with me and Baby Bear. I feel like a whale but the doctors say Im fine and Baby Bears heart sounds awesome and that we are right on track! So YAY! Only about10 weeks left till ym due date and thats really scary!!

 

My baby shower is on Saturday here. Im super excited cuz Sarah rocks and we are going to have soo much fun! Mum says when we have the one in Wilmington that she wants to rent out the club house and have it there so that will be cool.

 

Looks like I'll be up in Wilmington for good the weekend of Kennys graduation, or at least that Sunday. My family is coming dwon for the graduation as are Alex and Scott (WOOOT!!!) and I think Im just gonna ride back up with one of them. Kenny gets 10 days off so he might come up and we might go to Charlotte or something like that. Maybe get Craig to come and see us!! But I'll be up there as of the 13 or 14th of July till after Baby Bear is here!!

So thats all...nothing else new that I know of. So im off!!

Blah...just a quick update

Kenny comps for Prototype on the 5th!!! He has less then 6 weeks left! We should be getting orders in about a week or two...I hope...we will see. He's on mid right now (830pm to 830am) which are LAME!!! I miss him at night. =(

The Baby is due Aug 24th. It wont stop kicking. Its good and healthy! 28 weeks tomorrow!!! Which is CRAZY!!! I have a docotors appointment on the 9th so we will see what they say then. Im not too worried things should be fine.  Im working on our birth plan and thats fun, takes a lot to figure out how we want things to go but we are getting it. 

Im watching Sarahs little girl Katy during the days when our hubbys are are work. She is sooo cute! She's 8 weeks old and jsut about as cute as can be. 

Grandma's out of the hospital. It wasnt her hip that was fractured, they dont know what it was...so they gave her more meds...just what she needs. Oh well. Its just too much stress and too damn annoying to deal with. She wont fucking help herself so I reallly cant feel sorry for her! Whatever its in her hands to handel it.

Gonna start getting ready for bed (thats about a 2 hours process). Hot bath then reading till I fall asleep.

cross your fingers for us please!!

So apparently since Kenny cant do his work with his recruter 5 days in a row and they cant start on the weekend (which is BULL cuz I know other people who started on the weekend!!!!) we might not get to go on our honeymoon. Kenny is going to talk to his comand today to see if they move his leave around so we can still go. But I am just going to be crushed if we cant go. I was looking forward to this trip! Please please keep your fingers crossed that we can get it all moved around. I havnt seen my grandparents in 3 years and Kenny has never even met them! PLEASE keep your fingers crossed!

Wanna do a little somethin...

These last few weeks have been nuts! Between getting settled in the house, Kenny getting sick and graduating a week late (not like it changed naything so thats good), a million and one people staying over (including a really cute 3 yearold) and Kenny graduatting A-school and spending the weekend with Matt and Sarah. Oh and my baby kitten face has an AWFUL eye infection!! The meds the vet gave us arent making his eye better. Im worried about him!! But they are too cute! Aries just jumped on the pillow and made it fall off the couch. Silly boy.

We are going to Wilmington this weekend, cuz my dear Alex is graduating!! YAY!! I have to get her gift together and talk to Scott and see what he is getting her. I hope that the Navy doesnt fuck us over and Kenny can come home with me. Cuz Loring has to have surgery in two weeks nad thiis would be the last time to see her before then so I really hope he can come home with me. That and Alex and Scott and Brenna and Rob want to see him. I need to ask Scott if he is wearing his uniform to the grad so I can tell Kenny if he should bring his.

Well he is out of A-school now which makes him a Petty Officer 3rd Class. So yay for my hubby!! IM proud of him! We went out to dinner with Sarah and her husband Matt who also graduated with Kenny (but he is an EM not a MM so his A-school was longer and he was in a diffrent class) and it was so fun! I love Sarah she is a great person and Matt and her are sooo funny! Matt spilled orange soda ALL down his whites!! IT was sooo funny!! Then we slept all Saturday and then Sunday we went with Sarah and Matt to the USS Yorktown and into Downtown and we had Deep Fried Gattor Tail...it was oddly reallly good. But that was a fun day.

The last weekend we had Botkin and his fiancee Liz and her little girl Lauren staying with us. Kosman slept on the couch all weekend. It was odd having a 3 year old running around a non child proof house. But nothing broke so thats good. The kittens were like WTF is this!!! And Demeter wouldnt come out from under the couch (she was doing really well and coming out to sit with us and stuff, then Lauren came over!! Poor kitties.

Madona is gross...shes on TV in a unitard and its not pretty, I dont want to see that much of her ass....anyway!

I think thats all thats new in my life right now. Its just been a non stop swarm of people and things going on. I have to reallly clean this week cuz Robert and Boo-Boo are coming to stay with us for the next few weeks. So I have a lot of cleaing and Boo-Boo proofing to do. I also have to find the cord for Kennys computer.

military spouse appreciation day

america's military has realized and acknowledged the significance of the military spouse. in 1984 president reagan proclaimed the friday before mother's day of each year to be military spouse appreciation day. it is your day to stand up and be honored.

for the times you've stood and watched a ship sail from the harbor, an aircraft disappear into the clouds, or a truck convoy pull out of sight, not sure when they would return, we thank you.

for the countless household moves you've made from a place you know to one that's strange and different -- often by yourself -- we thank you.

for the families you've held together, for the anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays you've celebrated alone, we thank you.

for the hand you've extended to another military spouse when the need was there, truly creating a military family, we thank you.

for the spirit and strength you've shown when your service member has gone into harm's way, we thank you.

for the pride you've displayed while serving as an ambassador of the military spouse to the rest of the world, we thank you.

far too frequently, the sacrifices and dedication of the military spouse have gone unnoticed and unappreciated. In our nation's recent history, thousands of service members have been placed in harm's way as they stood watch as freedom's guardian. you too have stood watch at home, facing challenges alone. you have waved flags and held banners high to express your support. you have kept the candles burning on the home front as a reminder of our deployed military.

you have made difficult sacrifices of your own, and have called upon your inner reserves to nurture family life so your service member can focus on the business at hand.

even in times of relaxed alert status for our military, you have stood ready and alert for the slightest of signs, perhaps overlooked or ignored by your civilian counterparts, signaling a potential change in the status of our military forces. as a military spouse, you have willingly packed up and relocated countless times, and may have been separated from your own parents and siblings for several years at a time.

quite often, you have been placed in an unfamiliar ethnic or cultural setting, or a remote location. you have met this challenge with confidence and pride, making your nation proud of you. by the same token, you have extended your hand and hospitality to visitors to our country.

a country cannot count itself strong by its armed services alone, but must also depend on its civilians. with military wives and husbands setting a superior example through devotion, courage, and commitment, we are a nation of strength.

military spouses … stand tall, stand proud … we salute you, you are truly our unsung heroes.

big ups to the man upstairs for making it possible for matt to come home on such an important day for me :) hug a military spouse & thank them for everything that they do.

So this weekend was awsome!! But I am sooooo tired!!

Got in on Friday and we got the Page 2 taken care of and then we went and got my Military ID and I am sooooo excited about that!!! I sat there and looked at if for like 45 mins!! Then we went and saw our house!! Oh man!! I am sooooo excited!!! I cant wait to get down there!! Then we got some of his friends and went down town and had Sushi! I LOVE it!! It was soo good! One of the guys drank alot of Sake so we had some fun messing with him! Then we took them back to base and Kenny got some Sparks and we went back to the hotel. We drank them. I dont like the after taste but it was a nice buzz. We had a good night! It was nice to get to sleep with my husband again!!! Also
Saturday we staied in bed for a while then got up and took some more of his friends to the mall from base. We went and ate lunch and then we went back to base so Kenny could get all his stuff for the ball. We got back and took a shower and then got a phone call from his friend Lindly who we were going to the ball with, he was stuck at the mall and the duty van was gonna be 45 mins to get him and we had to be there at 6 (it was like 5) so we went and got him and then finished getting ready. Then got some set backs at base getting Kenny and Lindly ready and then we got LOST LOST LOST trying ot find Lindlys dates house!! We got her and got to the ball 2 hours (almost) late! But we got there! I found Sarah and she look AWSOME!!!!!! We got a table and ate dinner and talked with the guy who was driving the Admeral around. He was funny. Then Kenny and I went and got pictures taken and then I met his Cheif and then we danced and hung out with Sarah and her DH. We took the cups and candles and mirrors. Matt and Kenny both cup themselves on the mirrors. Poor babies!! Then we all went to Waffle House and hung out there till like 1 am almost! Then we took Lindly and Kat back and Kenny came back to the hotel. I was up till 3:45 but I fell alseep.
Kenny had to be back to muster and have a duty day at 0545 but I took him back at 0500 then I went back to the hotel and had the wrost 4 hours of sleep in my life!! I kept waking up. I got ready and and packed up and checked out and then went back to base and saw my hubby! We ate and then I left. I didnt want to but I went home and I was sooo tired!! I came home and took a nap!!
I just got up a little while ago and now Im hungry.

For the Military Girls!

I would like to recognize these often underestimated, unseen, and unheard heroes.

This is for the sad military wives, the angry military wives, and the strong military wives.

This is for the young women that are waking up at 6 a.m. every morning, laying out clothes and packing three lunches for those small precious children that they have been left alone to care for.

This is for the pregnant military wife wondering if her husband will make it home in time to watch their miracle happen

*This is for the childless military wife, living in a town or on a base alone where she is a complete stranger to her surroundings.

This is for the women that feel like a third leg when they go out with their friends and their husbands.

*This is for the military wife that canceled all her plans to wait by the phone, and even though the phone broke up and cut off every time you spoke to him you waited anyway.

*This is a pledge to the women that cry themselves to sleep in an empty bed.

This is to recognize the woman that felt like she was dying inside when he said he had to go, but smiled for him anyway.

*This is for those of you that are faithfully in that long line at the post office once a month, handling 2 large boxes and 2 small children like a pro.

*This is for that woman that decided to remodel the house to pass time, and then realized that she had no idea what she was doing and sighed and wished she had a little help.

This is for all the lonely nights, all the one-person dinners, and all of the wondering thoughts because you haven't heard from him in days.

*A toast to you for falling apart and putting yourselves back together. Because a pay check isn't enough, a body pillow in your bed is no consolation, and a web cam can never compare.

This is for all of you no matter how easy or hard this was for you. Our marines/soldiers/airmen/sailors/coast men are brave, they are heroes, but so are we.

So the next time someone tells you that they would never marry a military guy, don't bother explaining to them that you can't control who you fall in love with. *Just think of this and nod your head, know that you are the stronger woman.*

Hold your heads up high, hang that flag in your front yard, stick 100 magnets on your car, and then give yourself a pat on the back.

I'm dancing the seven veils

So I miss my husband...really bad! I want to be with him really bad! I could move there now! I could pack everything up tomorrow and we could get a house and live in it tomorrow. I dont wanna be here any more, but I cant leave yet. I have to wait till schools out...in three weeks! I dont want to wait that long! Cant I just be with him now? I have to pack everything up. after I go through it all and decied what needs to come with me.

Im having this odd pain in my side and lower back, but its not a constant thing so I am not that worred about it. I think its just muscles. And stress so I am not that worried.
