I'm So Tired Of

this deployment
my kids fighting
taking out the trash
figuring out things to keep busy with
not sleeping in one day on the weekend
missing my husband
being pregnant
john's crappy internet connection
my kids bickering
my slow blackberry
raising two boys alone
being alone
not sleeping
my kids not sleeping well for more than two days in a row
eli sceaming "oh, no! i broked it" while playing trains
not cooking a real dinner
making meals for the kids that are not eaten
sleeping by myself
watching my kids miss their dad
not having orders in hand
over thinking the Newport situation
turner's almost constant moods
waking up tired
did i mention my kids fighting?
people saying "looks like you have your hands full."
Reba, the dog

**As I finish this up, I'm reminded of my favorite part of today: Turner putting his arm around Eli after finding out my favorite perfume was shattered all over the floor and saying "It's ok, Eli, don't be sad. Me and my Daddy will go buy Mommy more.**

Okay, okay... It's not all that terrible.

Oh my word!! I can relate to so many of these! Mostly the fighting and people saying "looks like you have your hands full."
Aside from that, I apologize for being a stranger and commenting on your blog. I just had to!

Katie said...

Awww!!! Turner is so sweet!!! I'm sorry things are so tough right now, I wish I was closer so I could help!

Nellie said...

I love you, Katie! It's really not that bad but when you do it day after day after day after day without a break (or just a chat in the evening with the only person that cares about the tiniest details of your kids' like) it just gets old! Plus, there were too many happy posts in a row and it sort of scared me that we got the hang of this. :)
Nicole! I don't mind at all. That's why I gave the mag my blog name. I'm a totally normal, just like anyone else Navy wife. It helps me to read other blogs but most seem to be a little too perfect for my liking! You can find me on Facebook under nellie (dot) baggett (at) gmail (dot) com

Nellie said...

wow. and i obviously can't type today!

Jennifer said...

((((hugs)))) Nellie. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be.

I did sort of chuckle at the "meals not eaten" thing. Drives me nuts when I fix a nice decent meal (normally breakfast) and they eat NONE of it. Especially if they were 'starving' to begin with.

(oh, and my BB has been slow lately too, what's up with that?)

Ok, I am only just now getting to know you a little via email and I look forward to meeting your family. But, man, this post hit hard. Most of that I can TOTALLY understand, especially with 5 kids, but I would have to give you a hug for having to deal with it alone. I admire you greatly!

Amen. I would like to add leaky faucets.

Hang in there, you are almost done with this one.
