Todays is

My first day of High School.

How was your first day of High School? Get locked in a locker? Sit by the cute and popular guy at lunch? Were you nervous? Did you get lost trying to find your classes?

I'l be honest I hated high school, I wasn't bullied or anything like that just wanted it to be over. The 1st day was SO long ago I don't remember alot about it. I know that taken the bus (my mom drove) and met my then boyfriend Jeremy and did after every class. I had a different lunch then him and went and sat at the pool with friends til he got out!

I guess I'll be doing two today too! I didn't havew time to hop on yesterday!

Yesterday was

The day I found out I was pregnant.

What were you doing that led you up to purchasing/taking a pregnancy test? How did you feel? What was the day like? What stands out in your memory.

Well since I've had 2 I guess I'll start with my DD (kinda fitting because today is her birthday! I found out I was pregnant on April 30th 2004. Dustin and I have only been together a few months and I had a DR appt afew weeks before and they asked if I could be pregnant and since we weren't being preventing it I said 'well I guess there is a chance' so then Dustin was just convinced that I was, he had bought me 2 pregnancy test prior and they came up negetive. We had just moved me up to where he was living the day before we found out and if I had known I probaly wouldn't have lifted the couch! So the 3rd test I took and put it on the counter and saw a line and said "uh Dustin.... we have to wait 3 minutes?" we went out side and when we came back in it was positive! I was excited but he was scared because of his prior relationships and the kids he already had. We went to dinner that night before he had to go to work and he was in shock!

Now with DS we had been trying for almost 2 years (we had a deployment in there) and it was the day that Dustin was deploying for 3 months. I woke up at 4am because i had to pee and took the test. It was the day I was supposed to start so I thought for sure it was going to be negitive, so when it wasn't I woke Dustin up and said "I'm pregnant, you can go back to sleep!" He was excited and so was I... I got on the computer and my sister in law was on chat so I told her and my best friend!

Blog dare!

Ok so yesterday I was off, so I'm going to do yesterday and todays!

Yesterdays was 'Secret Single Behavior'

When you were single, what behaviors did you keep to yourself? If you are single, what behaviors do you only exhibit when you aren't around a date, etc… {Pigging out on a tub of ice cream, etc…}

Ok so I have never 'tooted" (passed gas) around my husband, other then the 2 oops times 1. when I was 9 months prego with DD and laughing picking up my 20lb cat and 2. when I was SO sick and coughed and tooted at the same time so really they were more forced out then by accident. With that said when he isn't home or when he's been on deployment I have the freedom to toot! LOL I can not believe that I am share this!!!! *red faced blushing*

todays is...

What first prompted you to blog?

I originally started my first blog because we were stationed in San Diego and away from both our families, so it was a way to keep them up to date with us and share what was going on!

Why did you create a blog?

I started this bog because I needed an outlet (even if no one reads it) it gives me time to put my thoughts and words together.

Today is 'My morning routine'

I get up about 7am, wake DD up and get her clothes out. Depending on the day while she is getting dress I make her lunch or get her breakfast, do her hair, start the van (to start warming it up) wake DS up and take DD to school. After DS and I get back I get him breakfast and hop on the computer, check email and blog! On days that I go to work I start getting ready or plan what we are going to do for the day! I shower at night so I don't have to do that in the mornings, I straighten my hair and get dressed, get DS dressed and we are off!

Is it horrible to say that I hate setting goals? I just don't like the idea of setting a goal and then dropping the ball or getting close but not close enough... I totally sound like a huge failier! I normally don't make "new years resilutions" just for that reason and because so many other people do the same thing! Well this year I'm gonna try it... here's what I have in mind!

I bet yall thought I fell off the face of the earth... Or maybe you didn't even notice! I was super crazy busy with work, christmas and life in general. So if you missed me I'm sorry, if not OK! We had a good Christmas, I loved watching my kiddos open their gift and get so excited. I loved spending time with my in-laws and being around family! I am taking some time off because my husband had to leave for federal training and I am going to be taking the kids back home (washington state) for a visit. He will be missing all 3 of our birthdays and I'm not exactly thrilled with it but what can you do right? Plus I think it's a much needed break for us! So that's what we've been up too! Happy new year!!!
