Back to the Real World

Our vacation is over and it is time to come back to reality. We had an awesome time and the kids thought it was the best camp ever. I actually made t-shirts to go along with our camp theme. (I'll post those later) Seth(ocrates) wanted to make pants to match and when I said I didn't think I could do that he responded, "Of course you can Mom, Chicken Little did it. Just go get some paper and fold it. Play it real slow and copy what he is doing."You have to see Chicken Little to know what he's talking about. Anyhow, the trip was great, we made lots of crafts and I was able to scrap 10 pages. I cooked everyday (what a miracle, as my husband would say) and I actually tried to cook a shrimp and okra gumbo and no one threw-up. So, I guess you can say that it came out okay. We did our own camp songs, ghost stories, and a glo-stick adventure which turned into Glo-stick Karate. We had a wonderful cousin Brit with us who was such a big help. I actually teared up when she left, leaving me to fend for myself in the land of motherhood.

For those who don't know, My hubby will be leaving soon to stay and work in another state for 6 months. So, when some of these posts get a little psychotic please give me support and pray that there is some sort of medication to get me through :)

Sounds like you had a lot of fun :)

As for when your hubby leaves for 6 months, just know that there are military wives out here who are used to long separations, so we will help you through it LOL

Re your husband being away for six month's that is tough. I had a long distance relationship with my now husband for three years so I know a little bit about it!

The one positive thing is that having children keeps you busy. There isn't as much time to sit down and actively miss the person if that makes an ounce of sense! Hang on in there. Take care

Cara - thanks for stopping in. You are oh so right! I really don't have time until I sit at the end of the night and even then sometimes I'm just too tired to think!
