Trials and Tribulations

Well, the whole potty training thing did not go over so well. Allie did it perfectly for three days straight, then she decided this was no fun and has not been back since. Oh well, I am not too worried about it. She will be ready when she is ready. No pressure on this end. It was cute seeing her get all excited about peeing though. LOL The things us parents think is cute.

Matt left for school last Friday. He will be gone 5.5 months. Hopefully we will get to see him every now and then. He is at the base that is two hours away, but of course with all the training and what not he will be pretty busy. So begins the boredom. LOL I guess I can use this as practice for him going to Korea in November. Of course I am super jealous and decided maybe I should go do some training too. He has a maid that comes and cleans his room, free cable and internet and the chow hall not too far away. Heck, I would take just the maid. LOL Must be nice. Gotta love it. Anywho, nothing else going on in our lives. Just taking it one day at a time. That is all you can expect right?

Who knew?

Allie surprised me yesterday by telling me she needed to go potty. So, we pulled out the potty chair and gave it a go. As soon as she sat down she went pee in the potty. How proud was I? Really proud. She only had one wet diaper yesterday and two today. The rest of the time she is using the potty. I totally did not think she was ready for this, but I sure was wrong. I was going to wait until she turned two, but I guess she is ready. I am a little excited and sad at the same time. Now I really feel like I am losing my baby. WAAAH!

Tired as usual...

I swear with the weather changing I get more and more tired each day. I wish it would make up it's mind if it wants to be Winter, Summer, or Spring. We have gone to the really warm to the really cold all in the last few weeks. GRRR!

Matt has been home on leave this week and I am sooo ready for him to go back to work. Don't get me wrong, I love my husband, but when he is around all the time he starts to get on my nerves. I can't stick to my normal routines because he is in the way. Plus, when he is home my house seems to always look like a tornado has hit it. Like I said, I love the man to death, but I need some space. Maybe I should rent a hotel room for myself for a night? LOL Funny how that is, you say your vows to spend the rest of your life with them but when they are always there I swear you wish they were gone. I don't know how it is going to be when we are older and retired together. I may just have to be one of those little old ladies at Walmart greeting people just to get away. LOL

We made it back alive...

but pretty wet. LOL It was fun down in Orlando for the week. We got rained on the first day we were there and poured on the day we left. It was still fun though. Actually having the rain the last day made it easier to get on all the rides at Magic Kingdom. I guess Matt, Allie and I were the only crazy people out trying to do Disney. LOL It was nice being able to walk right onto all the rides. Allie had fun. She loved meeting some of the characters. I think I must have walked a million miles each day though. Of course pushing Allie in the stroller made it even more tiring. I think we were all asleep by nine every night. Here are a few pics from our trip.

Matt is heading out in a few weeks for school. He will be gone for five months or so. Fortunately he will only be two hours away so hopefully we will be able to see him some of the weekends. It will be weird not having him around again. Still not sure about his orders for Korea and of course if he does go, I still am not sure what I am going to do. Ugh, decisions stink. LOL

I was able to hold a new baby a few days ago. My friend had her daughter on Thursday. I can't remember Allie being that small. It felt so strange to hold a little one again. I must be one of the weird ones though because most women say they get baby fever after holding a newborn, but not me. I will hold them and then give them back when I am done. LOL
