Have you ever stopped to think just how quickly time slips away from you.  Right now I am going through another deployment and I sometimes think that it will never be over and my DH will never be back home.  But then I start to think about how for 13 years I didn’t get to see my best friend.  That’s a long time to not be able to see each other.  We still talked, but I didn’t realize how much I missed her until I got to see her again.  When we got together it was as if we had just seen each other the day before, like no time at all had passed.  I hadn’t even noticed just how much I missed having her in my life daily.  I am so thankful that I got the opportunity to visit with her and to reconnect.  Looking at it now, I don’t know what I would do without her in my life.

I love ya girl!


A new toy….

Our new printer arrived the other day and the girls were so fascinated by it.


We are so happy to be totally wireless!

One day at a time…

Ever since My Baby left for another Iraq deployment last month I have been so indecisive about whether or not to post much during our separation. I sometimes feel like it is good to get things out and sometimes I feel like I don’t even want to talk about them. Well, I think I am going to give it a try and see if it helps time go by a little better. As of right now we have 7 months to go and it really stinks, but I have to be strong for My Baby and our girls, as well as myself. Thanks to my best friend Beth, she has shown me that shopping will definitely help ease the pain. It has. I have managed to buy a few new outfits and I am even wearing one now. 🙂


Forgive the tired eyes, I haven’t gotten much sleep lately.  Hey Beth, look at the bottom of the fireplace and you will see the doll I bought in California at Osco years ago.  I can’t believe I still have it.  LOL!


I have nothing.  Not one word to say.  Not one funny thing to write about.  Ok, maybe I do, but that is between me and my BFF.  LOL!  I love calling her that and she knows why.

Basically we are just adjusting to life and doing school.  That’s it.  Sorry.


If  you have to do the dishes…


At least do them in style…


Dd found an old ring at a thrift store that needed some love so we brought it home to clean it up. Since none of us could actually wear it this is what she came up with. Now we all like doing the dishes. 🙂

I found this on Elaine’s site and thought I would give it a try.  Boy do I live a sheltered life.  But that’s fine with me.  🙂

Now Add them up and…
Put “I’ve seen … out of 239 films” in the subject line and repost it.

Here is the first hat Dd2 crocheted the other day.

It fit her doll perfectly.



Here is what Dd1 has been working on.


She has completed enough squares to make a small baby afghan. Now she just has to put them together.
