How do they know?

Matt and I have a plan for the weekends when it comes to getting up with Allie. We each take a morning and the other gets to sleep in. Well it never fails that when it is my day, Allie is up at her normal time, but when it is Matt's turn she sleeps later. How is that fair? And how the heck does she know? I have even tried putting her back down during the week since I get up with her then, but she still does not sleep late? I don't get it. She will sleep later for Daddy, but not me. I can already tell she has it in for me. LOL

We had a great four day weekend. On Saturday we went into Savannah with a bunch of friends. It was a ton of fun. It was colder than heck, but we still had a great time. We went to a bar called Locos for lunch and man that food was yummy. Of course we had to stop at the candy store on River Street and get some fudge. I think I gained five pounds just walking in there and smelling all the candy they were making. LOL

Poor Allie is teething again and it is really taking a toll this time. No one is sleeping in our house for the last two days. Hopefully the two that are coming in will pop through soon enough. Wish us luck because Mommy is exhausted.

Man, it sure is getting cold these days. Even here in the south. It is crazy to think that in two days we will be in the 20's. This is the south is not supposed to get this cold. LOL Oh well, I can deal with it. I will just have to add more layers is all. Poor Matt is going to hear me complain since I am not one to deal with cold very well. I feel every icy breeze blow through (sometimes when there is none. LOL). Well, that is my complaining for the day. I really need to work on getting more pictures up. I am just lazy. LOL They are there, just waiting on my camera. They are calling my name, but I just don't hear them.

A good day

I just had the best day with Allison. Matt had to work so it was just the two of us. It was rainy outside so we couldn't go out and play like we normally do. Instead we stayed inside and snuggled up on the couch and watched Disney movies. It was nice to be able to lay with her. Of course she did not make it through the entirety of any of the movies, but it was still fun nonetheless. Her attention span is definetly getting longer. When she was bored with the movies we would go play. She styled my hair with her play brushes and we made snacks together. I know I am home with her everyday, but days like this are the best.


Things are moving fast lately and I really am not ready for it. Matt has less than fifty days in his enlistment. He is scrambling to find a civilian job, but with the economy the way it is I don't see it happening anytime soon. I am such a pessimist, I know. I like to think of myself as a realist. It sounds so much better. I hate the feeling of not knowing what is going to happen. I want things to be secure. Is that so much to ask for? I know things are bound to work out one way or another, I just wish I knew when and how. I guess I just have to think of something else. Easier said than done. I think it is hard because we have made some really good friends here and it is going to suck to have to leave. We have so much fun. It took us awhile to get to know people and now that we have I am don't want to go. Sigh, this is the military after all and if it wasn't us leaving one of them eventually would. BLAH

Matt and I are going to start on a diet and exercise program again this week. I gained 7 pounds since my surgery and since I finally got the okay to exercise this week it is full speed ahead. YAY. I kind of miss jogging and all that fun stuff. I know I won't be saying that in two days when I am sore from head to toe, but heck it will be worth it right? I think we are going to make it a competition to keep us fueled. At least I hope I do because I have a competitive spirit and hope it will come out.

I hate being sick. It is not fair. Someone somewhere should have made it so that moms don't ever get sick, or at least until the little ones are able to care for themselves. Even sick and feeling like poop, I still do not get to just lay on the couch and moan. WAH. There is laundry to do, a child to take care of, and a husband who seems to forget how to cook. I tried to get the cat to fold the laundry but he just yawned, stretched and then left the room. It really is not fair I tell you.

Odds and Ends

Happy New year...even though it was a while ago. LOL Not much excitement over here. Kid's are breaking into cars again in the neighborhood, but they may have caught two of them this time. I just don't get it, why break into people's cars? They must be really bored or something. Allison is having fun playing with all her Christmas toys. I guess we picked some pretty good ones. Matt keeps going and playing kitchen with her and they have a lot of fun together. I must not be fun because Allison does not like to play kitchen with me, she would rather throw the food at me. LOL Crazy kid. We are on the countdown to Matt getting out and I get more nervous every day. The ecomomy is crap right now as everyone knows and I am still wondering if it is the right time to get out. It stinks being a grownup sometimes. All these hard decisions to make. LOL.

I really need to get on the ball with taking pics of Allison. Matt bought me a new camera for Christmas and I should really use it. LOL Well, I actually have taken alot of pictures, I just need to upload them. Oh well, one of these days.
