Day 3

 We are almost to the end of day three on this wonderful journey and although the kids miss their dad they have figured out something oh so wonderful dad is gone and mom is in charge, which thus begins the delightful game of who can make mom crack first. Oh come on if you are a parent you are fully aware of this game, in which the children's heads begin to spin and conjure up as many horrible acts as they can in an effort to make you the parent completely insane. The interesting thing about this is that the once everyday head spinning child (Katelyn) is now not the worst behaved one, her younger sister(tori) has graciously decided to take on this title for her. As I type this she has stolen underwear from her sisters room and is now running around with them on, which I guess is much more suitable then her declaration last night of "nakee time"(naked time) as she ripped off her pull up and chucked it.

All in all we didn't have a bad day we managed to mail off our first care package to the hubby even though we have no real idea of his were abouts at the current moment(some were out there)
I ordered a new book on amazon this evening ,You Know When the Men Are Gone
Siobhan Fallon. from what I can tell it should be good. Something to keep me busy I guess. Overall I think I’m surviving thus far (check back in a week or so and things may be different) on the plus side I have been able to catch up on my shows in the evening and no one to make comments on just how many chocolate caramel eggs I eat lol.. On the negative side nights are really silent once the girls are asleep allowing me to hear every creek or noise in the house which I now find myself leaving the entry way light on at night. I guess the first few days for me are just about adjusting. We were fortunate in that my hubby was able to spend so much time at home with us in the weeks before he deployed ( 2 kidney stone procedures) so now its just me and these crazy kids here adjusting to this whirl whin life that we call the army. On that note I will end saying that I love my soldier and we are very proud of what he does. Please add the folks of BSTB in your prayers tonight as they all begin the long road ahead

No harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
Psalm 91:10 - 11

Here we go....

Well here it goes, I'm going to attempt to give this a try and see how it goes. The point of this blog is still a little unclear to me as of yet, but it just feels as though it's something I must do. From the title you get that I'm obviously an army wife and well the 270 days comes in as my journey on this deployment. I can't guarantee that all my blogs will be bursting with rainbows and sunshine but its real my thoughts and feelings. Things going on, in my life during this time frame. May not always be interesting but if I make you laugh or put a smile on your face just once then I’m good with that. Now that we have that out of the way lets go back to the beginning...

WHO AM I ..... Fair enough, I'm a stay at home mom with three (3) kids. I have two girls and one boy. Throughout my life I have tackled many jobs but none so important as mom, and army wife. With both these jobs comes an awesome responsibility and with both you have your ups and your downs. Moments you wish you could treasure forever, others that you would like to lock in the closet and never speak of again (I think deployment falls somewhere in this category) I love to cook, bake, sew and in general anything that is crafty. I would like to consider myself a kind, caring person (sometimes to a fault) I'm often reminded of a quote that I saw on a friends page once "Don't mistake my kindness for weakness."

( I love quotes so get used to seeing those) This is a new venture for me. Each separation from my hubby I take it upon myself to learn or try something new, in the past I have tackled cake decorating, and sewing by no means am I professional at these things but would like to think I can attempt a project here or there. So, I guess I’m to assume this might be my next thing to tackle. As a child I really had an interest in writing and I guess over the years it just faded away. The point to this rambling is... its new, I’m a horrible speller, grammar obviously sucks and well I ramble but be thoughtful with any criticisms, feel free to leave your comments and personal story’s throughout this journey.
So enjoy reading!
