New Living Room!!!

So today I got the urging to go to Chuck's Furniture (where we got our bedroom set), and fell in love with this couch. I haggled a bit, and wasn't happy with the price so I told them I would be back if I couldn't find a better price. On my way out the door they lowered it by TWO HUNDRED bucks, and threw in a free 5-year warranty. Awesome...that means I didn't have to drag two insane kids to other stores, woohoo!!! I am going to pick up my new living room set in the morning from one of the girls on post (I found an Ashley entertainment center, coffee table and two end tables for $250, she says they are immaculate, only 9 months old).

Tomorrow, we will have a totally new living room. I am just sad that Dole isn't here to do this, but at the same time he can just come home and everything will be amazing...and without all the work!

Off to talk to the honey now...

Oh and Yeahhhhh

Hannah is superbly smart and decided not to drag her three children out today to get the few staple items before the BIG grocery shopping...CAN YOU BLAME THE GIRL? NO. So since I didn't have my kids with me I picked up her kibble and dropped it off before going home. Not a minute had passed when she says "You're totally different without your kids with you." Now, for those of you who don't know Hannah well, she is not one of those people to insult you, so I knew it HAD to be different in a good way. Then she says "When our husbands come home and we actually get to hang out without our kids, it will be like meeting two entirely new people!"

SHE COULDN'T BE MORE RIGHT! I mean come on, if we are such amazing friends with our 5 children swarming about us 24/7, then it's gonna be INCREDIBLE when we don't have monkeys hanging off our backs, ankles (and boobs). Anyone who can maintain a friendship during the roughest times in each others lives will most assuredly have a BLAST when things start to go a little more smoothly again! Crap, we have been "single" moms since we met about 6 months ago! When I say "single moms", I mean single in the respect that we have to do everything alone...including SLEEP alone (for those of you that think that when your husband is deployed it's perfectly okay to sleep with another man...or even worse, MEN).

I miss my girls from back home too...so much it hurts. BUT I am glad I have the few great friends I have here to ease some of the heartache of missin my besties!!!

Yuck!


Randy has been sick AGAIN...fever, and he vomited twice (not even remotely like baby spit-up, the nasty kind that is projectile and covers everything in its path). The first time was when I had my friend Anita and Wendy over for dinner and we had JUST finished eating. Thank GOD Wendy used to be a trauma nurse so she is quite accustomed to human waste. Poor Anita...she just can't hang with the puke (which I was COVERED in from the waste down, and Randy was totally drenched in). While I was changing my soppy clothes, they were awesome and changed him and jammied him up :) I love my girlfriends!!!

Of course, I barely got ANY studying done so now I am cramming it into every single moment I have. Lots of work to do and not enough time without screaming children. Not to mention Alanna has been acting like a monster...ohhhhh she has been making me sooo mad!!! I tell her not to do something, so she sticks her tongue out at me. I tell her to do something, I get "I don't want to".

What am I to do?! I have to spend the time studying that I SHOULD be spending with my insane child...maybe she is just looking for attention. LESS THAN TWO MORE MONTHS OF THIS INSANITY WOOHOO!!! Dole should be home in about 6 weeks, that's the consensus.

The A's came by and watched the kids for me so I could run to the the commissary, and they are helping me out Tuesday when I go pick up our new living room furniture. We are getting a new entertainment center, end tables and a coffee table. They are Ashley, and really super nice! I am buying big baskets to go underneath (one under each end table for the kids' toys, and two under the coffee table for magazines and other such adult crap we shall accumulate)...I am going to check out Wal-Mart, Target and Pier1 I suppose. The hunt begins. BOTH the super perfect awesome couches I wanted were sold over the weekend, I hope I find something amazing!!! I am not going out to buy new ones, but if a great deal comes along on CampbellYardSales.com then I will snatch it right up!!! I know what I want and I am picky...so now it's just a matter of keeping my eyes out.

Off to do some more work, I am almost done with my history exam (which consists of 10 questions that contain 3 essay questions each)...and studying for a 3 chapter test for psychology. When Dole comes home I will be done with spring semester, so I will have a nice 2 or 3 month break to refresh the brain cells...
