OMG!! What a creep!! He really does live there and then still freaking rips you guys off?!! Wow....I cant believe it, freaking Fayetteville! I cant stand it here. I dont blame you for being scared, I remember back in january when david was gone in the field, some guy tried to break into our apartment at 1am!! Banging on the door, staring at me through the windows.. Its was soooo beyond scary. The closest friend I had here at the time lived in VA.. so I packed up my dog and I was pregnant still and drove to stay with her for a week!! Until David got home. To this day I am still scared to be left alone. I am hoping because we live on post I wont be as scared now when he leaves to go somewhere, but we will see. Im so sorry you had to deal with that. I was starting to wonder where you were!! I cant wait until David gets stationed somewhere else..hopefully safer then Fayetteville, do you know they rated Fayetteville one of the worst places to raise a family?!! because of the crime, drugs, nothing for families to do around here, barely any parks...it sucks. I am just glad Zack was here when all this happend!! Phew!!!.....David is deploying anytime after the 30th of this month and I am trying to get to Florida asap after he is gone..because I dont want to be alone with Gabriel while he is gone..because I had a scary thing happen to me too...so dont feel to bad for being scared..I have stayed up all night as well some nights, just like you and I sleep on the couch because I cant hear anything in my room either...I hope that dude stays away from you!!! uuughhh

That guy was the one who tried to break into my apartment!! People saw him walking around our apartment parking lot!!! He almost got in.. and I was home alone pregnant!! If it wasnt for my dog barking I wouldnt have woken up.. so we are getting a german shepherd now.
I hate deployments too.. this is our 2nd one.. its harder this time becuase gabriel is in the picture now. He will come back when Gabriel is 7 months old. He is going to Afganistan. He only deploys for 6 months at a time.. so it could be worse, but Im so upset already.. Im dreading it. My heart is going to break, and gabe looks just like David. Omg I need to stop or Im gonna start balling!
How long is your hubby going for? He is leaving this Sept? Are you going to stay here or go visit family?

Yeah we will be driving. So that we can have the car when we are in Florida. I wanted to fly because its so much faster, but then I wouldnt have a car there.. so driving it is! Its gonna be about a 12 hour drive! Shouldnt be too bad, he sleeps a lot and only eats about every 3 hours. So I can use that as my bathroom break! I dont blame you for wanting to go home, but for only 2 weeks that would be crunch time. I went home when david was gone for 7 weeks. He went to texas for training, so I went home. If its longer than 2 weeks I usually go stay with friends or go home. I dont like being alone like you.
Whats your plans for today? Since its pay day I gotta go pay some bills and do some errands. Oh yeah.. do you like football?! Football season is starting!! I LOVE football!!! New England Patriots are my team!! LOL.. Im a sports freak!

We almost always go to the commissary, but there are some items we have to go to Walmart for, either they dont have it there or dont have a certain type we want.
We had Hardee's today a late lunch..we ate around 4 so dinner was late tonight and nothing huge. I hear ya about going to bed, Im feeding gabe now and then going to bed, we bought this new type of formula from Enfamil. Its called Enfamil Restfull, he eats it only at night and its a little thicker to help him sleep longer at night! I hope it works, tonight is our first night doing it!

Yeah I feel ya on being tired!..lol.
Gabe slept for 4 hours!! Fabulous!!! worked like a charm! still tired as heck though!! How was your day today? Mine was ok..didnt really do anything to exciting. Im getting ready to dye my hair.. so thats exciting I guess! Dying it shimmer black. I love black hair! but if I could have any color of hair it would be red!!
So if you could live anywhere where would it be? I would say for me it would be either Montana, Wyoming, Colorado..somewhere with moutains..and horse country!!
Gonna watch a movie tonight "Death At A Funeral" I've been dying to see it!! Hope all is well girly!! we need to get together before I go to Florida!

I actually did nothing besides the grocery....LOL and I'm gonna declare tomorrow a lazy day...I'm pathetic haha, although I'm sure I will catch up on laundry...but I rly would just like to watch lifetime movies all day! Yeah my hair is naturally red, on Block Leave in July I got blonde highlights...Zacks aunt is a hairstylist so I always have her do my hair when I see her...If you want red how come you don't try red? Yay for Gabe sleeping long! It's always an amazing feeling to get up and hold your new baby, but very tiring (not a word I guess but hey ya know what I mean) If I could live anywhere I would have to say Florida, or somewhere that I've never been like California Yeah we will defiantly have to meet up sometime I'm sure we don't live far at all

Hey Lazy days are ok in my book!! Although I dont get them much anymore! LOL..I have dyed my hair red A LOT actually. But I wish It was naturally red, like a nice auburn red, but oh well..
I like lifetime movies as well, they can get really addicting!! Especially when we are Army Wives and dont work!! Speaking of Army Wives I cant wait until Sunday! How many more episodes? like 2 more I think? uuugh Im so bummed and how long is it until the new season comes back on? Im planning on buying the season's on dvd to watch while david is gone, watch like an episode at night before I go to bed with the baby. Im really hoping the 5 or 6 months he's gone will go by quickly..especially becuase I will be so busy with the baby and going to florida. Any word on when your hubby is leaving next month?

WOW!! Good job girl, it looks really good!! We had Chicken stir fry. I LOVE chicken stir fry with white rice.
It sucks when they done know the exact date until the very last minute, it drives me crazy with David being Special Forces too, they will tell him he is leaving at the very last minute!! Most soldiers will have time to know they are deploying..Nope not david's unit. A lot of marriages dont last when they are married to special forces soldiers, because its so hard on the families vs regular army.
So what do you usually do on sunday's? We dont do anything.. My husband and I are very much homebodies!! We like it that way..Any plans for the week?

Well i am for sure taking a nap!! I know that Gabriel does sleep good at night, but lately I havent been sleeping that well. There is a lot going on and my mind wont stop from racing all that much. So I try to sleep as much as I can even if its during the day. I've been really depressed and crying a lot, not so much the baby blues..but other stuff going on. Sucks...Maybe we can talk about it through Facebook IM...uugh.
I think I need to go out today by myself to get a break.. Im thinking about going to Starbucks to get a coffee..
