We have been so busy this wek. Right now my house is systematically becoming boxes, and more boxes. We are getting everything we need to done during these next couple of weeks. We are leaving the state of New York on the 18th of next month to head to Illinois to see Jared’s grandparents and some of his family that lives there and then making the trek back to New England to get the boys and I settled at my Dad’s house which will start our year long wait for his return from Korea.
Plans for when I’m home in Vermont include learning how to knit, make baby/kids moccassins and maybe a pair for myself, make candles, bath bombs, and other various DIY things. I can’t wait until June when we’re going to get my new car/the family car. Hopefully he’ll stop trying to talk me into a damn mini van hahaha.
Things are going to be much different but I’m excited for this journey to say the least. It will be hard but we will make it through like we always do.
Today is going to be pretty busy. Already finished up the dishes, and working on laundry. 1 p.m. Jackson has his shots, and a check-up for his 2 month check-up. Then I have to go to the OB to get bloodwork done. I have to set up my follow up appointment for my medication. The only problem I’m having with it is the insomnia. I’m sure once my body gets used to it again I’ll be just fine but for now I get three hours of sleep a night and then Im up for the rest of it until the boys wake up. It’s kind of this endless wakefulness.
Otherwise I’m just starting the packing process so I’m ahead of myself rather then getting behind. I also need to go through all of Lance’s toys and my clothes.
Deep cleaning the house is in order too and finishing up the laundry that has kind of piled up on me when I was going through a depression slump. Feeling much better now. Researching therapists in Vermont as of now. And we are hoping we have the new vehicle before he leaves for Korea. All in all busy but everything’s going good.
My appointment went great the other day. I’m starting my new medication today. I have a infection on my back from my hair always resting on it. Creating a fungal infection. I’ve got to put Selsun Blue on it until it goes away for three months. 10 days each month. Sucks but oh well.
Now I’m just chilling with my boys. We’re watching Forrest Gump while Jackson does tummy time and Lance plays. We cleaned up the house and are working on laundry now. Tomorrow we are planning on going to Picatinny Arsenal down in New Jersey to take the boys to the water park. I need a bathing suit so hoping we can get that today.
Also waiting to see if my mom is going to drop my brother off today so he isn’t sitting in the house by himself all the time. I keep begging her to bring them over here so I can spend time with them but for some reason she doesn’t want me to take them. Vincent and I always have a good time and he’s such a good kid. He helps me with the kids and we have lots of fun. I’m half tempted to ask if he can come with us tomorrow. My sister gets to do all this cool stuff this summer at rec but he has to stay home? That’s not fair to me. He could at least come to my house and not be treated nasty all day.
Anyways! Gotta go pick up my medication in awhile. Tying to do laundry and go through Lance’s clothes/toys.
Have a good day all!
It’s truly amazing what one person can accomplish when they’re motivated and willing to put the effort in. In just a couple days I have successfully got every doctors appointment I need scheduled. Tomorrow I go to the doctors to get back on my antidepressants and seek help for therapy due to my problems I’ve suffered with for a long time and during my pregnancy I was not advised to take any kind of medication for those problems. Anyways, that’s taken care of.
I have my appointment for OBGYN and Jackson’s first set of immunizations on the 8th of August - and then another OB appointment after they do my bloodwork to get my Mirena taken care of.
Now I have to make a decision on the new vehicle I want and continue to go through stuff to see if we can hold a yard sale/give stuff away. We have to store his motorcycle and some of our personal stuff as well but we are getting new furniture when we are in Colorado so I’m not worried about that stuff. Probably keeping my bed with me though.
Anyways I have been feeling super productive lately. So thankful for my beautiful family and how supportive my guy has been throughout everything.
Couldn’t ask for anything better.
Can’t wait for Lance to go to preschool so he can associate with kids and Jackson to go to even part time daycare while I try to go back to work.
Now just trying to deal with Lance’s father is my only nightmare.
Back to he’s for this mama. Goodnight.
Rarely do I come on here like I used to. Being a full time mom is a lot of work. It’s truly endless with a side of endless. I used to focus on Tumblr and followers. Now I wonder if I’m going to get through the day in one piece. I’m still here though. Still me.
