The Whirlwind.....

That is the only way to describe these past few weeks.  I have pretty much decided that there is no way other than bullet points to update everything that has gone on.  So here it goes:

  • The kids spent a week home from summer camps and daycare and we did various day trips.
  • We went to the Splash Playground at South Germantown park.
(Orangutans crossing in the zoo!)
(Playing with new toys with Pop)
  • We went to see fireworks with some friends. 
  • My youngest turned 3!
  • I dealt with stress stemming from this post.
  • It was discovered that my oldest son was covered in poison ivy.
  • The kids all had their annual physicals.
  • I had another dentist appointment.
  • I attended my first Hearts Apart meeting with a friend.  
  • I argued with Concordia and my dentist over some charges. 
  • I took a mid-term for school. 
  • I've been missing my husband like crazy!
  • I spent a day at the pool by myself relaxing.
  • It appears my youngest is beginning to suffer from separation anxiety.
  • We enjoyed the company of some friends for a friends birthday party.
  • We spent some more family time at the pool.  (My youngest is turning into a fish!)
  • I took my oldest son to be evaluated.
This is the basics of our whirlwind that has been our past 2 1/2 weeks.  I am so ready for things to slow down a little and try to enjoy some of what is left of the summer.  I really need to work or de-stressing and trying to regain some of my emotional stability. 

Next week, my daughter has another week off of summer camp and we'll be redecorating her room - stay turned for updates on that....  (reminder to self:  take pics of her room currently)

* Day trips. . .wasn't that a fulfillment of a goal of some sort? :-)
* Seeing orangutans in the zoo is almost as good as seeing them in the wild. Lol.
* I saw Toy Story 3, too! Wasn't it good?
* Nice shot of the fireworks.
* Poison ivy, separation anxiety, evaluations, AND dentists?! Geez Louise.

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
