A couple of things…

This post has no point.  I just felt like putting these things out there and none of them deserved a post of their own!

My FRG is having a key leaders meeting this week where I will have to present the ideas that I have come up with for social events.  I found a couple of ideas online, took some ideas from things that were done at our old post, and every once in a while an idea just pops into my head.  It’s really not as easy as one would think to come up with ideas that would interest a large group of women!  I hope they like what I have come up with and I intend to tell the whole group that I am totally open to suggestions!

My father-in-law keeps calling me and feels the need to remind me that my husband is in a war zone.  Really?  Does he really think that I have forgotten where my husband is and what could (God forbid) happen to him?  I was telling my husband about the latest conversation and had him in hysterics when I said “I think he means well.  Really, I think it comes from a good place, it just comes out all kinds of wrong.”  I try to see the good even when he tells me that my husband should get out of the military and we should pack up and move to Canada!

The thoughts in my head go about a hundred miles a minute, I never really relax because I’m always thinking.  I bought a journal at the bookstore and decided that I would just write stuff down and see how that worked out.  Now, I sit down to write all the craziness and nothing.  I know that it’s just for my eyes, but it totally frustrates me that I can’t get the thoughts from my head to the paper the way I feel they should be.  So my beautiful journal sits on the desk as empty as the day it was purchased.

Have you ever heard of this?  Remember how Monkey had pink eye last week?  Well, she broke out in this really nasty rash so I took her back to the doctor because I thought she might be having a reaction to the medicine they gave her.  No, she was having a reaction to the pink eye virus itself.  There was nothing they could do for her, the doctor said the rash would go away as she got over the virus.  As if she wasn’t suffering enough, I mean how fun is it to have pink eye, have to have ointment squeezed into your eye lid, and then have an extremely annoying rash?  She then developed a cough, runny nose, and sore throat.  The pink eye is better, the rash is disappearing, and I think the cold is getting better too.

I’m so excited!  My best friend is coming to visit in March.  How awesome is it that she’s spending her whole tax refund to buy the plane ticket to come see me and my girls?  She can’t get here fast enough!

    Your husband is away, its cold outside, you have a 4 year old and a new baby and your best friend is coming to visit. Sounds like just what the doctor ordered to me. 🙂 It’s fun to be a host and it’s fun to be a guest. With the sluggish economy I hope she gets a bargain price on the plane ticket. 🙂
