Life in the world of V

Life has been chaotic to say the least. In the last two weeks I have survived an ice storm that just about did me in, the boys and I have the flu and puking all over the house in the middle of the night thanks with no electricity to be able to see the puke I was trying to clean up. After the flu I lost 13lbs and could not eat for about a week, which was great until I ate my first hamburger and put all 13lbs back on. I'm an idiot.

We've also been going through some rough times with the Army side of our life. It's hard for me to handle these things when he is so far away. My husband I'm sure it goes without saying is very important to me and I tend to bring the claws out when he's being attacked and unfortunately my claws are getting tired from being out for far to long.

My oldest is finally out of his cast which we were all really excited about until we realized that he still would not be able to walk properly for a while and is still using his crutches. This frustrating for all of us.

Today was my daughters 12th birthday. Her father sent her 3 beautiful roses to school where she burst into tears but was very happy.

Tomorrow is my youngest sons 8th birthday. It's all been a lot to handle trying to deal with my kids growing older while their dad is gone.

Now we are gearing up for our Christmas weekend of fun, I have promised my children a weekend devoted to them no work, no FRG, no drama from the outside sources that usually provide it. First though is my company's Christmas party which last year provided nothing but fun, can you say OPEN BAR??


  1. Open bar? Handy!!

    I got a nifty clock/pencil holder thingie from work. I was surprised to get anything at all. (I work for a social service agency...they don't have money! LOL)

    Sorry life is so stressful. It'll get better - eventually!

    Here's hoping the new year brings lots of relaxation your way!

  2. WOW! I am so sorry you have been dealing with so much!! I hope the new year is more mellow!

  3. Are you still alive?

    Hellooooooooo in there?
