Yes, that's me. I name it and claim it :)  (Beth Moore reference for those of you who are in the club)

I don't know why every part of my life ebbs and flows so dramatically.  I'm either on top of things or I'm drowing.  There's not much in between for me.  So that is why I haven't been blogging.  I just haven't wanted to lately. 

I'm pregnant again so yay!  13 weeks today. 

We are going back to America in 3 weeks where we will spend 2 weeks together before Hubby leaves to come back to Germany to prepare for deployment.  I am excited for America! Man, I have missed it.  It's so funny.  I spent 2 years after college in Eastern Europe and didn't really miss America at all and now I have spent 6 months in Germany and it has been soooo hard!  The older I get, the less I want to be away from family I guess.  Plus having a family of my own now makes transition and change a lot harder. 

Baby Girl is now obsessed with her pink bunny blanket.  She has to sleep with it and heaven forbid we leave Bunny at home!  Of course she would have designer taste.  Just my luck her particular bunny blanket is a Sandra Magsamen which costs about $40.  I wanted to get another one so she could get used to both of them so A.) I could wash it several times a week and B.) In the event we lost one, we would have a back up.  But 40 bucks?!?!?  Holy moly. 

Ok, gotta run.  Baby Godzilla is tearing apart my living room :)

That's right.  R. U. T.  Rut.  My parents came and visited and then they left and I am in a funk about it.  Funk, funk, funk.  Until about an hour ago, I was still wearing the PJ's I wore all day yesterday.  That's right.  Judge away.  Plus, Hubby is gone...again.  I swear, I only see that boy about 10% of the time.  Also, looks like he might be going to yet another 2 week course end of May.  Bleh.  I don't understand why people think being an army wife is so great.  They must see their husbands more than me.  Or maybe they just dont care if they see their husbands or not!  Or maybe they are just so proud of their husbands that they feel it is worth the sacrifice.  I don't really feel like that.  I mean, I can feel like that for a deployment, but what about the rest of the time?  I haven't gotten any consistent time with my husband (any consistent dinners or weekends I mean) since last may.  That is redonkulous.   He had a couple of easy weeks at Christmas, but 2 weeks don't cancel out months of absences!  I mean, is my daughter supposed to grow up barely seeing her daddy?  I dont like it.  But, no surprise there.

One of these days I will get my pictures organized and will post about Baby Girl's 1st birthday and also about the 4 places we traveled with mom and dad (Neuschwanstein Castle, Regensberg, Bamberg, and Prague).   We did have a lot of fun.  I wish Hubs could have gone with us everywhere.  At least he got to take a 2 hour lunch break the day they left so I didn't have to take them to the airport alone.  I would have been a total wreck!  It was really beautiful weather.  I will try to post some pics soon.  Maybe even tonight. 

I am currently reading "Clan of the Cave Bear" by Jean M. Auel.  It came out the year before I was born!  It's pretty good so far.  It all about Cave People and they way they live.  Then this little blond chick comes along who is more like the modern day human and she basically rocks their world.   It is a series of books-maybe 7 or 8.  They are all really long.  I've gotten into reading these massive epic books/series lately.  Yes, I am currently reading 3 books that all have about 600 pages and are all part of a larger series.  I don't know how that happened.  I've been reading Robert Jordan for a long time (I'm on book 9 out of 14) and then I started reading George RR Martin (book 1) which Hubby stole so I started this Cave Bear book.  I think I am going to stick to Cave Bear and finish it or else I'll be reading all 3 for the next 2 months.  Plus I have to return it to the libary May 17th. 

Speaking of May, I have 2 formal balls to go to and nothing to wear!  Well, if Hubby goes to that 2 week course, maybe I will only have one to go to.  But either way, I have nothing to wear!  Like, really.  I have one cocktail dress and one formal gown and I'm pretty sure I've outgrown them both.  However, Hubs got a promotion so maybe he'll let me buy a new dress ;-)  I just have to find an affordable dress in Germany....that might prove to be challenging since clothes here are so expensive!  Oh, America, I miss you!!  It is kind of fun to dress up, but I wish I had some friends here.  One of my friends gets to go to one of the balls so yay!  She probably has a ton of dresses because she loves dressing up, but she's only 5'2" so that wont work for my tall butt!

Anyway, I think I'm done rambling for the day.  Hopefully, I will be out of my rut soon.  Hubs comes home tomorrow and should have the entire weekend off so that should help my funk out.  The weather is nice so maybe we can do something outdoors.   Grill out or just take a walk.  Hope everyone has a fun weekend and I'll post some pictures soon!
