... thoughts on today

Today as most of you already know.. (I mean IF we are friends on FB) I took a big step in starting my new years resolution.  Most of you all think it probley has something to do with the divorce, and part of it did. The main thing I was talking about was going to my boss and asking for a raise. To alot of you its not that big of a deal, but to me it was. This is a job that I love, but I know that a raise is much needed.

I guess with all that I had to do today, making the visitation schedule, and actually seeing on paper that I will NOT be with my baby every day and every nite like I always am got to me a little. Being that my first weekend is coming up. This weekend. On her birthday :( My girl will be 3 sat, and she will be spending most of the weekend with her father.  She really misses him, and will love every minute of it so that makes me happy.

So, here I sit taking in all of the events of the day. Engrossing myself in more carrot cake, and pepsi. (you know this girl LOVES her some pepsi) And I am very proud of myself for making myself uncomfortable and accomplishing something thats well overdue!

.. on being a big girl!

:( So today I really realized that im broke! LOL I either need to start stripping orrr, I guess the better option would be to ask for a raise! Boo for that, it just makes me feel so bad. Living off one paycheck really sucks! HA!! (child support DOES help, thankfully we have that)

OOOH well, we are gonna make it and all is going to be well in the world. This year I am going to save money dang it! Its really important! I will get my finances in check. More and more everday I feel myself getting more drived to do it. It feels so empowering when U have a extra "cushion" in the bank. THEN christmas comes and wipes everything out like a damn hurricane. BLEHH! HAHA.

Oh well to make the day brighter Im attaching a few pics of my girl and her cuteness. But for the record..

Somedays being a big girl... SUCKS!

A photoless christmas post!

I know I know, im just as bummed as you are! I cant find my converter to get my pics on the computer! :( Dern HP for not making the disc drive big enough!

Oh well, christmas was a hit! Lys found herself stumbling, and tripping, and stepping all over all the toys and stuff all over the floor. It was actually quite hilarious, but in order to keep the some safetly in the house I decided to start cleaning and organizing all the toys, and debris. We cant have bumps and bruises on christmas now can we?

Lys was soo overwhelmed with her laptop, digital camera, leap pad thingie, braclets, barie dolls, little people doll house, barbie car, and soo much other stuff that I couldnt get the kid to sleep. She didnt go to sleep untill 11 which is soo out the ordianary for my girl, she the 8 oclock kind, and mama likes it.

Thankfully her batteries are starting to die already in her digital camera, (dont judge, you say cheese about 1500 times in 2 days then talk to me) so maybe we wont have to say cheese for a few days, or that dern bright flash! It puts me outta working order for at least a good 30 seconds! Shes not so good at judging distance yet! Overall we had a great 4 day weekend! I cant wait to have another 4 day weekend with my girl again! AND its her birthday weekend as well!

Im so ready to start this new year! Anyone wanna hear my new years resolutions?? Too bad ima tell them anyways!

1.) Finish this divorce.
2.) Pay off my car, and maybe get a new one.
3.) Start making MORE money.
4.) SAVE lots of money.
5.) Go visit my aunt!
6.) Kick this anxiety's ass! No more worring, im live my life to the fullest, and LOVE every minute of it!
7.) MORE 101:P

Hope everyone has a great week! I promise that when I find that dang converter I will be posting LOTS of pics :)

Jingle bell remixxx :)

Soo today as I was driving lys to daycare she started singing..
Its nothing out of the ordinary cause my girl can bust out some lyrics, and insist on music being blasted, AND tells me NOT to sing mama!!
But today she made up her own version of a original song we all know and love around the christmas time..

Jingle Bells:

(complete silence in the car)

"Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way... HOME,"
"Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way... HOME,"
"Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way... HOME,"
repeated.. you get the point!

Its amazing how something so simple can put a HUGE smile on my face!!

Hopes everyone is having a great tuesday!! Yay for a short work week for everyone!
I know I have been slacking on the blog and I promise with the new year comes LOTS of new blogs :)

.... thursday rambles...

Sometimes I use to hate this military lifestyle. Its hard, Really dang hard! I use to wish and DREAM, that one day I wouldnt have to live this way. I could actually live something we call "normal." Then I have that chat with one of my loves I have met on the way. To me thats the greatest reward of being married to someone in the service. You meet so many different people, and you form bonds that can never be broken. I always know that I can always call upon certain people No matter what or what time cause thats the way its ALWAYS been.


So here it is the first week of november.. DANG.. Where has the year gone???!?!? Its been a pretty good one! LOL I am still excited and looking forward for the rest of it. Hopefully well go out with a bang :) Yesterday I became a MARY KAY consultant! I am SOOO excited about this. Its something I wanted to do for a while. There make-up is pretty fab so why not sell something I love :)

This baby Little girl of mine, has been quite the trip lately:) Shes learning and growin into a AMAZING little girl. Makes this mamma VERY proud of her. She knows all kinds of songs that come on the radio and just bust out the lyrics. Who knew at 2?? Never did I think that would happen. LOL She has been having bad dreams the other day. Which then turned into there being COOKIES in the tub, and she very terrified :( But daycare teachers talked to her, and all the kids ate all the cookies all gone, so shes over that! Thank goodness!! Its amazing how much daycare really helps them. :) As hard as it was at first, but I am so happy that I made that decision. She is using her manners so fluently. It makes me feel soo good to know that I raised such a amazing daughter, and I cant wait untill its my turn to do it again. One day.. sigh!

Tick off Tuesday!

Thanks to Kelli, I needed to vent a little and so here it all goes.

I dont think alot of people understand how hard/demanding it is to be a single, FULL time working mom. Its not that im asking for someone to show me pitty or anything but DAMN at least be understanding. Alot of people will tell you they understand and blah blah blah, and I know some of them do. But really?? I dont think most of them really understand what its like to live day to day like we do.
My schedule is as follows...
6:00 am Alarm goes off
(coffee, fb, etc:)
6:30 Shower/lys wakes up and she watches show in mamas bed..
6:45-7:55 Getting ready
(lots of bribing, and repeating my self to get out the door)
8:00 Left the house for work/daycare
9:00 Arrive at work..
5:00 pm Leave work
5:45 Arrive at daycare
5:55 Arrive home/start dinner
6:45ish Eating dinner..
7:30 Bath/book time
8:00 Lys Bed time
8:01 Clean up the house and get ready to start all over the next day..

See.. not much time in there huh? I want everyone to know that its not like im complaining or anything cause I love to work. I love that alyssa goes to school and she really loves it too. She has learned to much, and made so many friends. Also in all reality working was the best decision that I could have made as a responsible woman and mom. I just want people to understand that I dont have alot of time on my hands, and neither does any other full time working mom, married or not. Its a hard lifestyle. Its really hard for us to do anything on the weekdays, and on the weekends cause were busy taking care of everything else. Sorry i just had to vent..Somethings people say can just be hurtful.
