Busy Busy

This week was a busy one. My 5 yr old had to have dental surgery :( poor girl was scared but it all went well. She had 2 teeth pulled and the Tooth Fairy left her 4 dollars. She was so excited!

And in recovery. She was such a trooper.

Last night I woke up to feed the baby, who at 15 months is still waking up in the middle of the night. Anyways I stumble downstairs to put milk in his bottle. The light above the sink is on as well as the light on the deck. As I walked to the fridge something on the deck caught my eye. As I look out I see this big ass raccoon having his way with my trash that I forgot to take down to the can before bed. Damn critter. He's lucky I don't have a bb gun or I would of shot at him.

A dusting of snow

Last night we literally got a dusting of snow. Maybe an inch total. And I get a call from the school saying it's a code blue and their closed and then the base has a 2 hr delay. Seriously?! It seems to me that we're calling these closings and delays way to early. A friend of mine on a military message board I'm on told me about this funny commercial that Dodge did to kind of make fun of the Snowmageddon that people get worked up over.

This is what we woke up to this morning. THIS is the snowmageddon that canceled school and delayed the base. As you can see, the grass is still showing.

Our whole inch accumulation

Because of this "blizzard" the base clinic opened at 10 which made me reschedule a very important appointment that I had for 9:55. This whole thing made my day a mess. Tomorrow will be even crazier I'm sure. Adapt and overcome right?

Wonderful weekend!

This past weekend I flew to Tennessee to see a friend that lives in Kentucky. When I first got to the south I have to say that it was a truly amazing experience. People in the south are so nice. I'd never experienced something like that living up north.

Saturday we got up early and drove about an hour and a half this really cute Donut Shop called Yum Yums. A friend of hers owns it and starting to franchise it. So if you ever see one, stop in. Her donuts are way better then Dunkin or Crispy Creme. So while the guys fixed up buggies, us girls went to the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg TN. It was pretty cool to learn all the stuff about it. Like that Jack was 14 when he opened his distillery and that he was 5 foot 2 inches tall and wore a size 4 shoe. He was a tiny little man.

Then on Sunday we went and met another military wife friend that we met online years ago. So we drove to Ft. Knox. She was just as amazing in person as she is online. I'm so glad I got to meet her.

Monday we went to Nashville which was a blast. We went to the Country Music Hall of Fame. That in itself was a great experience. I got to see so much great memorabilia. I highly recommend it to anyone that take a trip down there.

Then Tuesday I was to fly home. I missed my flight and had to catch a different one but thankfully I was able to get home that night. All in all it was a great trip with a great friend.

People are dumb

So today I took my dog to the vet. She needed her annual blood work done. My dog is a black lab. She is suppose to be pure bred but she has a beard and a wirery coat but whatever she's an amazing dog and we love her the same. Okay so we are at petsmart and I hate to go there b/c of the comments we get. My dog is right up there with my children. So please tell me why on earth people think it's okay to say things like "bless her heart look at her scruffy face" or "oh my what breed is he" Okay well first of all SHE wears a bright neon pink collar so HE is a SHE thankyouverymuch. Second of all, would you ever walk up to a child's parent and say "bless her heart, what's wrong with her face?" NO YOU WOULDN'T. So why on gods green earth would you say that to a pet owner? It pisses me off so bad. She is my dog and she is precious.

So then we are in the check out and the lady at the register says "oh my, she looks like she's mixed with some type of terrier" I ignore her. Then she says "Oh and it looks like she has some black on her tongue, she might have a little Chow in her too" Really lady? You work at a pet store and you are stupid. Having black spots on a dogs tongue is nothing but pigment. It has nothing to do with a dogs breed. People are morons and it's worse when you work at a pet store and say really dumb things regarding animals.

We love our bearded lady <3

longest day of my life

Never have I ever wanted it to be bedtime for the kids more then I do tonight. I am so over today in general really. We did a bunch of shopping. You know, got our tax return. Paid a bunch of bills, then went shopping. I got a new laptop since my husband is going back to Sea Duty and will need one for himself. No way in hell am I giving him a new laptop. So..the spoiled little princess I am, got a new laptop and my husband gets my old one. My new one is super cute and has a ton of space for all my pics and junk. Down side, the key placement is off b/c of this weird row of keys to the left.

Then we went shopping for a new washer and dryer. I had planned to use out DLA when we moved for a new pair dryer is shitting the bed sooner then I had planned. With a family of 5 and at least 2 loads of laundry being done a day, I do not have time to dry my loads 2 sometimes 3 times just for them to dry. So we found a awesome set at this store called HHGREG. They are HE and the agitator is really low JUST WANT I WANTED! I'm super stoked to get them on Monday.

Then we went to Best Buy to get an external hard drive to take all my pictures off my old laptop.

THEN.... we came home with SECONDS to spare of my preschooler getting off the bus..whew... I literally walked in the door, fed the baby and put him down for a very late but much needed nap and left for the commissary. We needed groceries so bad. You know you've stretched the food long enough when your little kids say "wow the freezer is so empty, we have no food" lol. On top of regular shopping I needed to buy all this crap for our Super Bowl party. I was already super tired from the long day so the thought of killing a few people in the store crossed my mine a time or two.

Got home and fed everybody crap for dinner b/c THIS CHICK isn't cooking a damn thing tonight. I am beat! My house could burn down around me right now and I can assure you, my ass is not coming off this couch. The older kids are headed to bed now but b/c of the babies super late nap this afternoon, he is nowhere near tired :( I've offered my husband anything he wants if he will just play with the baby and tire him out. We'll see how that goes. But for today I'm done. This has been the longest day of my life...
