I've never been to myrtle beach..but I would love to go visit. I love being from Florida, especially so close to Kennedy Space Center, I love the space shuttles. My favorite vaca spot is probably Korea, since I was military I got stationed there and it was awesome! I have always wanted to go to Asia and when I found out I was excited!! It really is different from the USA, its like another world out there..no hint of america at all. But if i could go anywhere it would be Fiji, Bora Bora probably!!!

Ok so lets talk Army Wives!!!
Last episode..I couldnt believe Jeremy did that! Kissed SPC Gabriel..but I knew she didnt have a fiance back at home! I just knew it.
Who do you think something will happen too? or do you think anything will happen? I've heard a lot of fans say something will happen to Jeremy or MAJ Sherwood, but Im kinda leaning towards General Holden..what do you think? and the last episode he wants to go into an unsafe territory..makes me even more suspiscious..IDK.
Next episode looks a little wierd to me..

Boo!!! I hate when David goes to the field!! How long is your hubby gone for? Not too much planned today, Gabriel had his 2 weeks check up. He weights 10ibz 1oz and is 21.8 inches! He is doing really good, but unfortunatly I HATE the doctor he saw today, so his next appt in another 2 weeks (his 1 month) is with a different pedi, so I hope I like this one better. Its sooo friggen hard to find a good pedi! He was telling me to feed Gabe 2oz every 3 hours!! are you kidding me?!! I know my child and that isnt enough!! Ugghh!! so I will continue to feed him the amount I am now. We have another appt today at 3 at the WIC office, formula is expensive!! LOL..whats your plans for the day? Im getting ready to eat lunch now and watching a movie and Gabe is sitting next to me in his bouncy/vibrations seat!

Sry I didn't make it back on yesterday a Big incident happened her Monday night but it's so long I will copy and paste in in here in a sec so you can read it...I posted it in my other board today...That is crazy I hate Womack they also told me that for Addi...but she always ate way more so I stuck with what she wanted I cant believe you had u a 9 lber!! I was 9'11...Yeah both my girls still have WIC we go to the one in hope mills...No plans for today...Big Brother is on tonight at 8 so thts where I'll be

I told the Girls in my MOG board today...So I've copied and pasted...Heres the long story...


So I'm sure I have said this before but DH an I are both frm Indiana...Zack started his Army Career in May of 2007 a month after I had Kaylynn, that's when he left for Ft Benning GA for Boot Camp. He did that and then graduated frm that in September. November is when he came to Ft Bragg, he was immediately deployed to Iraq and came back in March of 2008 just in enough time to make it to Kaylynn's 1st Birthday in April...So he came home to Indiana for that, afterwards he came back to Bragg to look for us an apartment...He found one so Kaylynn and I moved here that April of 08....We stayed in that apartment, Zack deployed to Haiti Feb 3rd this yr(On his Bday) He came back April 27th. Well our lease was up for our apt this yr in March so while he was deployed some of his family came down frm Indiana to find a house to rent..Which we found one which was good because that apt was $810 a month for a 3 bdrm 2 bath, and the house I found is Big, has a deck 3bdrm 1/2 bath for $650...Well once I moved in March 1st is was just me and the girls here until he came back the end of April...I was constantly scared to be alone even though we have an alarm, I spent the whole time here w/ sleepless nights on the couch because I felt that my room was too far away for me to hear anything...There were nights that I stayed up until the sun came up at 6 just to make me feel better...Well Monday night at 10:00 I was up on the computer doing Addison's Life In Pictures, Zack was in here in the LR sitting in his game chair watching tv, the girls were asleep...I heard soft knocking well I didn't turn around and look at Zack because I thought it was him knocking to get the dogs attention, I heard it again and this time so did he, So he gets up and goes to the front door, It was a white male maybe between 30-40...He asked Zack if he smoked, Zack said yes and gave him a couple of cigarettes, I went outside to listen...He introduced himself and so did we, and Zack was telling him about he was in the Army and stationed here, The man said he lived across the st diagonal frm us...after talking he left. Not even 5 min. later he knocked on our door again to ask if we had change for a $20. I looked we did not so he left. 5 min. later he is back and knocking for a third time...This time he is asking if he can give us 4 5's for our $20(Which at that point we didn't catch made no sense) So I guess Zack gave him the $20 and he never came back to our yard with the change...We were ripped our last $20 in front of our face....So Zack comes in and tells me what happened...He tells me to lock the door, he will be back...He took of in his car which made me nervous because he carries a pistol, It has never used it but would if we were in danger. He comes back and said he didn't he him, but he did run into a group of about 10 black males who said they seen him coming back and forth to our yard....then the last time seen him cut through a back yard...Well a little later we heard alot of commotion outside, Zack goes outside and the black males drug the man to our yard and made him hand Zack the $20 and then let him go...So at this point we were thinking the man lied how can you rly live across the street that close and do that? Made no sense...I was upset because the next night (last night) My husband had to go stay out in the field for the night. So I decided I was gonna pack the girls and I up and go stay at my bestfriends house for the night...As I was leaving I ran into another neighbor she is a nurse and she was coming home from work so I told her. She told me he rly does live there!!!! She says she believes he has a drug problem...But I was way to scared so I left my dog here and my alarm on and came back this morning when my husband got off. I just hate that I was already chicken enough before this happened and when DH is gone I always feel like I live in Fear and I hate it, I am rly lucky to have a bestfriend here about 5 min away...I rly wish family lived here at times...So that's whats been going on and I didn't wanna be over at her house and take over her computer...Ya know? But I am home and defiantly back to get my chat on I just didn't want ya'll to think I ditched ya...I was actually having withdrawals...LOL
