How did you and your hubby meet? We met thru a friend when I was 15. DH was a friend for 5 years before I had any interest in him. I was the "dream" girl. He thought he hid it, but I knew. Then I seen something in him one day. We were married 7 months later.
Is this his first deployment? He isn't deployed. He has been in boot camp and schools.

Today I went to yard sales. No plans, cleaning before DH gets home!

How'd you meet your DH?

Just wanted to stop in since I was late getting started. How is your weekend going? My mom is staying with me, so I get to hang with her. She is watching the kids for me next weekend so me and DH can have some time together by ourselves (for my bday). Does your DH like his job?

DH graduates from his MOS school tomorrow morning so he hasn't really done anything yet, but he says he likes it so far. He loves being a Marine, its his dream.

Tristan has a double ear infection. The 3rd in 8 weeks. I made an appointment for him to see the Ear Nose and Throat specialist next week. He is feeling better.

Dh will be home sometime before friday, he won't know until tomorrow.

What do you do for a living? I am a SAHM. I wish I was at work sometimes. I have actually been trying to find a job because DH is reserves and we need some income.

Did you go to college? What did you major in?

I got my eyebrows waxed today. I was so mad. The lady must have been co.ck eyed. I had to fix them when I came home. I also dyed my hair auburn.( at home). LOL I need a life. haha

Do you watch TV? What kind of shows do you like?

Do you have facebook? Heres mine: Welcome to Facebook

I meant to add that DH is a field radio operator. He is graduating this morning. I kind of feel bad for notgoing, but we are on the opposite side of the USA. I went to his boot camp graduation.

I work in the accounting dept of a corporation full time.

I did 2 semesters at college but then I quit to work full time. Right now I'm doing school online for medical coding and billing. I find it interesting.

I really need to get my eyebrows waxed. I've been majorly slacking at keeping them up.

Here's my facebook link
http://www.facebook.com/jend114

My fave shows on TV are NCIS, Law & Order SVU, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Iron Chef America. I've been watching a show on Discovery about the swordfish fishing lately, its neat.

What are your kids going to be for Halloween? Nicole is going to be a witch.

Do you have any hobbies? I love reading.

I <3 NCIS! I love House too. CSI and CSI Miami. I was a Flashforward fan. I actually don't get to watch much TV. I have a few shows I watch, but thats it. When I get a chance I like watching the history channel and discovery. I am an avid ET believer, so I love shows that deal with that. I like space shows too. I am very into the universe and planets and galaxies.

I read, but mostly online of things I am interested in. I don't like reading novels.

I am on my last class for my AA. It is my first class in 5.5 years. I was nervous taking this class because of time elapsed but I really like it and I am very interested now then the first time I took it years ago and failed. It is human growth and development, we are working on the first 3 years right now. My first test is in 2 weeks.

Halloween! I LOVE Halloween. It is my FAVORITE holiday. DH too. Well, DD wants to be a fairy. I have a beautiful Disney princess dress (my sis got it last year after halloween) that lights up. I bought a set of wings and I am going to sew the wings to it. We will probably make a wand (she wants one). I am being cheap this year due to our situation. She has been a cow, sally from nightmare before christmas, super girl and Ariel the mermaid. DS is going to be scooby doo or a Marine (if it fits). He was a skeleton last year. I want to dress up this year, but I don't know what to do. I want something cheap and I can put together. DH will probably match with DS if he wears the digi camis.

As far as hobbies, I have none. I love to do art, but I don't have time. I read, so I guess that could count.

Well, DH is not coming home today, lol I expected it. I have learned thru others not to get to excited about things the military tells us, because it always changes. Don't know when yet, but yikes I can't wait.

Tell me about your kiddo. What is she like? What does she like? I love girls. They are so fun. Do you want another?
I would like another, but DH and I have agreed that we are done and he will be getting a vesectomy next month. I want more, but with my pregnancy issues (very high risk and my body attacks the placenta and tries to kill the baby), my stillborn son and DH being in the military now (my nerves), I can't take another responsibility and I do not want to have any high risk pregnancies while he is gone. I am not done tho. One day, when we are more stable and my kiddos are older, I want another, whether it be ours (reversal, if it works) or an adoptive or foster child. I had an IUD, but I am so done with BC. It is bad for me.

Ahh sorry things got crazy at the end of last week and I didn't get on much on Friday.

NCIS starts tomorrow night! House starts tonight.

Nicole is so much fun. She is so smart. She is outgoing yet can be shy. She loves reading and she has an obsession with shoes, everything has shoes including the dogs.

I'm not sure I want another, Nicole has been pretty easy so I'm terrified the next one will be horrible lol. I know Mark wants a boy though. I told him we could discuss having another one at the end of this year so we'll see then I guess

My hubby is home. Sorry, been a stressful week, but good. Hubby is looking for a job right now. We had to shut off our internet so I came to apologize. Financially, we didn't need it. We shut off our home phone and TV too until DH finds a job. We just got word his unit is set to deploy soon, so we are trying to make the best of a bad situation. I feel bad because I signed up to be a buddy this montha dn I will not be able to get on often. I am at McDs right now using their free wifi. The kids are playing in the play area. DH is going to fill out a few aplications after I am done. Thanks for being a great buddy. Sorry That I could not be better. I will try to get on when I can. I hope things go weel for you and your family. I am going to send you a FB friend request. tata
