Thanks everyone for the kind words. I started blogging to get the thoughts out of my head and I have found a little community. Some are military spouses, some are moms, some are neither, and I'm sure there is a lurker or two out there! I appreciate people taking the time out of their busy day to drop a line. I am feeling like a less crappy mom, the mood has passed for now but something tells me I'll have my moments again before they are 18! Motherhood really should come with a handbook, so should being a military wife, actually life should just have an all encompassing one! If only....
Dash-1 is back to himself, Dash-2 actually slept thru the night last night for the first time in weeks, and I have a cough and a runny nose and then hopefully sickness will leave our house for at least a little bit... it is after all winter in the Northeast, I'm a realist.
Flyboy is back... for now. There really is no easy life when it comes to them being gone. They can go for a long time, or they can come and go like the changing wind. Hmpf. Just have to try to make either one work. As soon as we figure it out I'll share our secret. Any day now.... For now I am off to figure out how two little ones equal five loads of laundry. I think the fountain of youth maybe easier to solve then that equation!
Hope everyone enjoys the long weekend!
