Chatty Cathy

I know this is weird, and not usual for me, but it's naptime, kids are not vying for attention and I'm just sitting here thinking. So forgive me if this seems random or weird, I'm just talking. (This is what happens when you don't get enough adult conversation in your day. Ha ha!!)

I love my life. I've got a wonderful husband, and beautiful, happy, healthy girls. I'm so blessed. (And no, I'm not saying all this to rub it in :P) Sometimes I forget just how lucky I am. I complain about the base, the weather, the lack of shopping and restaraunts (i.e. Target and Olive Garden, is that too much to ask for??) I'm not a greedy person, I don't need or want everything, but it'd be nice to not have to go all the way to Fairbanks (23 miles away) to get Infant Tylonal for my kid who's sick. I'd like to be able to see family more than once a year (if we're lucky) and darn it, I could use some close girlfriends to help keep me sane. Now I'll admit, I don't go to playgroup, which could in all probability solve that last problem, but the reason I don't go is because we've just got the one car and I am too tired/lazy to drag my butt out of bed and wake up the kiddos early and take Tyler to work so I can use the car later. Bummer huh? So that means I get cooped up with Karielle and baby Jillian all day, which usually is just fine with me, but sometimes I'd like to leave the house. lol! Which is easier to do in the summer than the winter. Getting all bundled up for -30 degree weather is not on my top 100 favorite things to do. So yes, I AM counting down paychecks until we leave (aprox. 66) and yes, I do whine to my husband and to my mom alot, but in all honesty, my husband is here, not deployed, my girls are strong, healthy and growing, there are great girls I know at church, I'm kept busy and can keep in touch with my family through the phone and internet. Things are a lot better than they could be. So, for those of you who think I complain too much, know that I do appreciate how blessed I am...most of the time. ;) Here's some pics, for those of you who only come here for the pictures, you know who you are. ha ha!!

Kari and her matching baby doll.

Jill being super cute. :D

Jillian's first buddy.

Daisy from Captain Tasker who came over for dinner the night before she moved to Florida.

Jillian will sleep anywhere and through anything. :D

  1. Oh Sweetie I understand. I am stuck at home with Natalie all day too. I wish I were closer to my family and had some close girlfriends to talk to as well. So you're not alone! Just remember to count your blessings!
