Hello Murphy...it's only been a little over a year since you last graced us with your presence, are you really back so soon?
Trust me, we have not missed you....AT ALL
Hubby has not even been gone a week yet. I am still in the "my husband just left" fog. You, Murphy, are suppose to wait a little while before bringing all your joy to my house. Guess you were just too excited to come visit huh????
Sorry for the little conversation with Murphy's Law. Just trying to find some humor in all this.
Quick catch-up...in case you did not already know my husband and my brother left earlier this week for deployment. It has officially started and the (very long) countdown is on. I have been absent from blog world (and pretty much everything else) This deployment, for whatever reason, is really hitting hard on me and the kids. Right now I am just trying to keep up and take care of them. I do hope to update with pictures of our last week together as well as the ceremonies and send-offs. I also am planning on catching you up on what life has been like the last few days. It's not pretty...and I am just not ready to write about it yet...but I will. (There's something therapeutic for me about writing it all down)
Anywho...we all know that when hubby leaves Murphy likes to come in and fill the spot, am I right??? Well Murphy is already here...sheesh...
I was awakened early this morning (1am) after having just finally fallen asleep at 12:30 to the sound of my little boy crying and saying mommy I am sick. My immediate thought..."This is just a dream, this is just a dream" Nope, no such luck. Not a dream. Jack has stomach virus...probably the worst one I have ever seen him have. I will spare the details, but lets just say neither one of us have had any sleep at all. He has still as of 8am not kept anything in his system. I have washed 2 sets of sheets, cleaned the carpet 3 times, changed both of our clothes 4 times (each), washed walls and doors, and am well on my way to using an entire can of lysol.
Now the princess has awakened and is ready to go. How can any one human being have this much energy???
Jack is so disappointed...today is his last soccer game and his soccer party. He is sad to miss, but I think his friends (and their mommy's) will be glad we stayed away. After his last "episode" he said does this mean no church tomorrow either. Sorry buddy, no church either (for the same reason as above, as much as we like to share...we will try not to share this) Ugh! But, as sleep deprived as we are and as much as I hate to see my buddy sick, I think we could use a lazy day. Maybe this is God telling us to slow down and just be.
So Murphy, welcome to our house...again...I have not missed you at all. Could you do me a favor though??? If you won't leave, would you please take it easy on me??? Things are pretty hard right now without you showing out. Thanks.
