mike went into the field today. i have been up since 5 with him and i didnt sleep last night as it was. wasnt because i ws upset he ws going into the field i was just thinking about deployments and the one coming up. and i was wondering how ill handle it. i kno, ultimately, i will survive but how hard is it going to be. so my brain is racing now fueled by three cups of coffee and when i say cups i mean 20 oz travel mugs. its scary and all because the weeks fly by. before i kno it it is friday again and the soup is coming on that night. and before i kno it the months are going to turn to weeks and then days and *poof* he will be gone.

lily is being a pita. i love her but she is a drama queen. right now im fighting her off my laptop which she insists on touching. and she gets all mad and baby yells at me which is cute and i cant really get upset at it but i wish she would just chill a little bit. the boy i babysit for is so laid back and lily is just not. i can put him in the pack n play with a a sippy of water and he will pass right out. we have a ritual to get lily to sleep and mike is the main player in it (another apprehention about his leaving) and its not fun.

i cant complain about last night, she actually slept through. i think she knew daddy needed her sleep. the night before she was up every 4 hours :O

now the field wont be so bad. he is gone today for 28 hours and he comes back and i off tomorrow, maybe friday and sat. sunday he goes back in and then i think its like tues and thurs. pretty much 24 on 24 off.

i need to sleep.

i hate my new layout and im too lazy to change it. so i apologize to anyone that checks my page out and is like wtf?

anyways
last night mike and i went on a shopping spree. our state taxes came in and they were $1400! i love nyc. i love their eic tax credit. we had used our federal return to pay off stuff and buy important things for the house so just being able to go crazy was nice. though mike felt guilty afterwards. im working now so im not totally worried. we never go shopping anymore because of our budget. and we are good about sticking to it. so extra money is like w00t.

well first off i wish i had my digi cam back from sony. mike went to zales and i got this gorgeous blue topaz and diamond ring for venereal disease day. blue topaz is lily's birth stone so its significant. i was looking at aquamarine rings but the color was blah and mike really liked the blue topaz one.

we went to barnes n noble and i got weird georgia and mike got another graphic novel.

and then we went to best buy.

mike has wanted the wii. so i wanted to get it for him for v day. i ask the dumbass in the gaming section and she said they had no more. this was the third store we went to (we went to eb games and gamestop at the oglethorpe mall). so mike said forget it. we are getting a cable box hooked up in our bedroom tomorrow and i wanted a bigger tv because you cant enjoy cable on a 13 in television. so we go and find a nice 20 in flatscreen for 87 bucks (its not a true plasma, it still has the tube but the screen is flat). we then decide to get mikes dvd rack for his gazillions of dvds. so we are about the check out when the girl on line behind me is holding a WII! i flip and mike flips and she told me, sure there are plenty left. so i run to the gaming section like a madwoman (best buy was about to close) and i get the wii, the gaming pack with the extra controller (you need two controllers this system is addictive) and zelda.

560 bucks later and we were out of best buy.

today he is at the range and since we are saving the last 600 of our tax return im making dinner. i made him a homemade pound cake that im going to drizzle homemade chocolate glaze on. and i have champagne and im making a pork loin, some mashed potatoes and some veggies for dinner. plus i want to spend v day with lily since she is our valentine. so it turned out to be a nicer day than expected. though i wish lily wouldnt wake up at the crack of dawn.

i havent posted in a few days because comcast sucks. and my cable internet has been off the majority of the time due to their own technical difficulties.

today i introduced lily to hummus. not my good, homemade kind ( i cant find chick peas in our commissary) but the prepackaged, all natural. it was decent but i like mine with a whole lot of garlic and lemon. the more the better. she loves it though.

holy shit.

as i was writing my hummus spiel lily was playing on the end table with a piece of pita bread and a bottle to her cabbage patch. for inspiration i look back at her to realize she is CROUCHING on the table! the little pip managed to climb on top of the table from her playskool push toy. needless to say i got freaked out and yanked her over onto my lap. she is now feeding me with said cabbage patch bottle. for a baby who is still breastfed she is doing really well.

she is also getting over her second double ear infection. she is doing great but she got another yeast infection. i have been overloading her with acidophilus, yogurt and cranberry juice (the 100% juice kind) plus monistat. its clearing up. i just hope everytime she needs anti biotics she doesnt get one.

i have also started doing the day care part time, though i wasnt able to take the certification class. i will be taking it in march. at night i have been watching two boys, age 9 and 18months. their dad is in the field and their mom works dispatch. she drops them off and i put them to bed. and the only one who has a problem with this is lily because they sleep in her room, the older one on our old full size bed and the baby in her pack and play. i have also had my friend jo dee's son the past two days during the day. the extra money will be going to valentine's day because the army gave us more money for travel pay. (teehee i like the army) so our bills are taken care of.

my digi cam still isnt back from sony which blows. if mike gets his bonus i think im just gonna buy a digi video camera. and the baby is forcing me to eat the rest of her pita bread.
3rd-Feb-2007 09:49 am - an early morning rant
obama
Note: first off this isnt directed to those on my buddy list who are pregnant are wish to be pregnant. i am very happy for all of you so please dont take offense.

yesterday mike and i went bowling with his platoon at lunch time. it was a nice time and now i kno that my husband's nick name in the platoon is penguin tube (ill explain about that later). well i was asked by the older bowling attendant asked if "i planned to make lily an only child" as she guffawwed on how cute she is. this wasnt the first time this was asked of me and everytime it has been asked i have been taken aback.

i guess this falls along the same line of questioning such as "when will you get married" etc and its just rude. i may be overly sensitive because everyone around me seems to be getting pregnant and having kids and while im happy for them, im relishing my un pregnant state with gusto. and i find it extremely rude that people assume just because the baby factory is closed and since its closed they fear " the horrors of lily being an only child".

now im not sure if i want another baby. more days than not i feel within myself that i have reached perfection with lily. plus i also think of the horrible pregnancy i had with her (recap for those who dont kno: miscarriage of twin, severe subchorionic hemmhorage due to her twin's miscarriage that almost caused her miscarriage. this was remedied with 16 weeks of bedrest, then her high afp score and our financial downfall as parents) and i really dont want to live through that again.

right now we are ok financially, we could be a little bit better but we have some comfy room. that will be remedied once i start the daycare and then when mike leaves for the sandbox. and i like spoiling my daughter. i like buying her 50 dollar stride rite shoes. i like that she has a ton of toys she barely plays with. call me materialistic but im just really happy i can provide for her because when i was pregnant i couldnt. and maybe im selfish but throwing another kid in the mix right now just wouldnt work financially.

then there is the issue of mike deploying. yes it will happen, and its happening sooner than later. and i def am glad i wont be alone, with two children right now to raise. maybe if lily was a little bit older but not as a 13+ month old. as it was i raised her on my own from march to oct of 2006 and it was the hardest thing i ever had to do. at least now she is older, she has friends and i have friends who have kids thus the playdates. but i knew most def i didnt want to bring another baby into the worls whose father will miss most of it's first year. its not fair to the baby and it def aint fair to mike.

at last, when i was pregnant with lily i told mike that i wanted to buy a home and have a new car when we got pregnant again. when he goes to iraq we are paying off his debt consolidation,student loans and surgery which will leave us debt free. he already talked to the va office here and by him doing this our chances of getting a nice size mortgage will be 100%. i also plan on buying a brand new car once he gets back which will look great on our credit. so obviously this would be the opportune time to bring a new baby in the world, with a new, bigger house that is our own and a new reliable car (my jeep is great but i want a real new new car)

so i guess in turn this is my rebuttal to all those that ask me if im making lily an only child. im not sure if i even want another kid and if i do it has to wait at least 1.5 years before we even try. lily will be about 2.5 which would make her almost 4 when the baby came, which would be a great age difference for me. i want to do stuff financially and for myself before i open up the baby machine once again and i wish people wouldnt be so prying and rude about asking why im not in some state of active reporduction again. but until then all i got to say is i love my iud.
