Is complicated but worth it. Me & Shane's 3 year year anniversary is coming up and honestly, I never thought we'd make it. Now I'm convinced we'll make it forever. Not sure why I feel that way and the thought is quite scary. I don't think I've ever felt this sure about anything else in my life.

I've read that there are many ups and downs in marriages and I never really want to see another down. I know we will, and I hope we get through it when the time comes.

Commitment has never been easy for me. Hell I can barely commit to a hair color or a fashion style and I'm expected to commit to one person out of a gazillion people on earth? Crazy.

A year ago, I wasn't sure we'd make it this far. Funny how time changes things, I don't even know when my mind changed. Not sure when I felt the spark again. All I know is, what we have now, I want it to last forever.

Baby Fever

I have it bad.

Looking at baby names did not help at all.

Why would I do this to myself again?

Midnight Munchies


Shit. I gained like 9lbs at my parent's house. I've lost 2-3 just being back home. Ridiculous. 9lbs in 2 many calories did I consume? Must have been a shit load.

It WILL come off, the 9lbs and more. I'm never going back and when I do, I'm getting a hotel (I say that every time).

For those that don't know, I'm an Atheist, I have tried to believe but my mind won't let me.

So, every once in awhile, I get these funny scenarios in my head. Quite embarrassing to admit, actually. Anyway, I always wonder what it would be like, if there was a God and he decided to do the whole Virgin Mary thing over again, except with someone like me...who doesn't believe. I mean, let's face it, someone who is a Christian when they get knocked up by God, really can't think much of it. But an Atheist? How ironic would it be?

I can really just picture me telling my Husband that I'm pregnant by God. I think it would go something like this:

Me: Honey, I have something to tell you.
Him: What is it?
Me: I'm pregnant.
Him: Um by who, I'm on deployment.
Me: By God
Him: What? You're an Atheist, remember?
Me: I know, I know, I was, I'm not anymore, by the way.
Him: Did you cheat on me?
Me: No, I would never do that.
Him: We are gonna have to get a DNA test.
Me: Well whose DNA do you think God used? His? Yours? Let me go call him

Ring Ring Ring!

God: Hello
Me: Whose DNA did you knock me up with?
God: What? You humans have the most absurd questions
Me: Sorry. I need to know, my Husband thinks I cheated on him.
God: Where's his faith?
Me: Um, it's 2009 God, Everyone cheats down here.
God: *SIGH* I'll call him.

Yes, I do have issues. There IS such a thing as too much spare time.

Small Town (continued)

Welcome to my Home Town! Yep, you see what that says? Alturas, FL. Try to find that on a map!

This house, while growing up, was known as the Slushy Man house. He sold Slushies to all the kids after school. He must have had a MILLION flavors in his house. He had no a/c, but all the kids would gather there at his house after school anyway. Yes, even in 100 degree weather!
Because I'm totally lazy and did this backwards, the rest of the Alturas pics are in the next blog!

Small Town, Florida

This might get long. Welcome to my small home town. This is where I grew up.

This is an old house on my road, most houses look very similar to this one. The amazing thing about this house and other houses out there, they went through 3 hurricanes in 2004. These homes have been around since I was a child.
Our small, local Fire Department. I think the only time they are open, is when there is a natural disaster, like a hurricane and they have to provide the people with basic essentials.

This is one of the old packing houses. We have quite a few of these here that aren't used anymore, but the building still remains.

This is our "store". It's really about the only one we have without heading into Bartow, the "bigger" city which really isnt big at all.

I don't know if you can tell, but this is a TINY road. Two cars can barely fit on it and at some point you have to cross a one lane bridge. One side has to yield to let the other side pass through it.

This is THE curve. The one you have to go about 10 mph around. When I was 16, I scared the living shit out of my Dad going around this curve. After that, he never rode with me again.

One of the MANY dirt roads & lakes in our part of the woods (or Orange Groves, if you can't tell those are Orange Trees in the picture).

It's completely normal to have a cow sitting in your front yard here.

Other than Orange groves, this is about all you see out here. I will have to do another post to get all the pictures in.

I Am Home!

Home Sweet Home!

I've been gone for oh a good two weeks, I think. I was supposed to stay another week but I just couldn't. I love visiting family, but I love being in my own home too.

Now I get to unpack..wahhhh.

I took a lot of pics of my hometown so a hometown blog is coming up soon (when I can find energy).

My Recent Findings

Just because you make more money than I/we do, or have higher social class....doesn't give you a pass to make ignorant comments.

Please take Street Smarts 101 Ass Face.

Not Happy

Some days, you don't really have a reason to not be happy, but you are just not happy. I think it's called PMS.

Save the "It could be worse" bull shit for another day. Don't want to hear it.

The glass is half empty, not half full today. Maybe tomorrow it will be half full again.

On another note, I'm headed South to visit my parents on Friday morning. I just need to make it through tomorrow.

For those that don't know..this is my cat. His name is Luna, he has attitude. When I "met" Luna, he was walking with this guy who was walking his dog around the block. I had never seen such a sight before. A cat walking around the block, so I laughed out loud. The guy told me he did it all the time and said he was a stray, but he thought he had been a house cat before. I decided to take this cat in, I mean really...who could resist?

I was told Luna was a girl. I named Luna after a Greek Goddess. One day I noticed Luna was licking her balls. Yep, that's right. turns out Luna is a boy, so now I tell everyone that Luna is short for Lunatic. Eric has recently renamed him to Tuna.

Tuna is a spunky cat. He hated us at first. He would run any time someone would get near him. He didn't hiss, he just didn't like us. Now my Tuna cat is always chasing us around. He even plays fetch with my kids. Yes, you read that right. Eric throws Tuna's mouse and Tuna fetches it and brings it back to him. Tuna also follows Eric to bed every night. Every single night..Eric says "It's bedtime Tuna" and here comes the cat. I have never met a cat that acts like a dog.

I think Tuna needs a diet though..he's getting fat & fluffy. I told him he needed to go on a diet and I think he is packing his bags. I don't think he likes the word diet.

Flashback Friday, Take 2

Camping is NOT what the Army calls it when you sleep in a tent on duty. Go figure, who knew?

I can't exactly remember the conversation, but I remember we were marching (more like hiking forever & ever) to our "camp spot" in boot camp and I said "I've never been camping". My Drill Sergeant over heard this. I will never forget it. He paused everyone and asked me "who the hell is going camping?". Well, shit, I don't know, I thought that's why we brought the tents?

Apparently it's a Bivouac..who knows how to properly spell that word? NOT ME. I'll never forget that term, Drill Sergeant, I promise. Now, when the hell will I ever use it again? Never.

And btw, this "camping" thing is not for me. Disgusting. And what I don't get is after I got out of Boot Camp and went to Japan, people did this thing on their own free will. They liked it.

I'm not a camper. I will take my bed. Thanks.
