Anyone else noticing my lack of internet activity?
Yes, that is due to my dh sucking the band width!!! It's driving me crazy, everything is freezing up and timing out, it brings me to tears! The girls are on in the evening with him and me and grrrrr.
The man has a new comp. thingy and in short he can control a space shuttle from Saturn off of it. It's a monster that's destroying my internet time and by golly internet friends are all I have! DAMN IT, YOU ARE ALL I HAVE!!!
Someone, anyone...are you out there? The real world is big...and dark...and cold and very, very much so lonely. Someone, please...hold me...
Okay so anyways I might end up cutting my gym membership and instead getting an elliptical for home. Just using the membership and daycare payments for the machine. I never got to do anything else cus I only had so much time with the daycare and blah, blah, blah so I was always on one machine and just prayed for a day when someone would watch the boy. Now that the day is here and dh is around, they shut the place down for remodeling...bastards! MAY YOUR MOTHERS BE CHASED BY RABID CHIPMUNKS AND YOUR FATHERS HAUNTED BY THE SPIRITS OF A THOUSAND SEX CRAZED BUNNIES!
In other news, due to my stupid computer issues I will be delaying such things as mass emails, sparks page comments, sparks goodies, image thingies, putting in the food and nutrition (haha, I'm reading and realizing I'm repeating myself...food and nutrition...hummmm) and other random things that require a page to load.
But my dear fellow and much beloved buddies of the realm of sparks, know that I, your friend kat, truly do miss you and I am here with you...each and everyone of you...in spirit.
For some reason the image of a woman screaming, kicking and beating off another woman who is strapped to her leg popped into my head which sounds totally creepy.
You know...when I say "in spirit" I really mean...
Love you all! Hugs-kat

I feel like one of those absentee parents. You know the ones who want kids, has a butt load of them and then pawns them off on someone else cause "Life got in the way". I'm a Bitch to push everyone aside.
I really am holding on by a string over here. Just a million things going on and I totally didn't expect it. I had warned some that I would be out of the loop towards the middle and end of September, never thought it would be the end of August.
Thank you to all the ladies who have helped with the team. Thank you to all my team members. Thank you to all of my buddies. Thank you to all who have wished my hubby a safe and happy return.
I'm ready to get back into the game. My knee is not better by a long shot, I did some running and have been hopping around ever since. Odd thing, it's not the one I injured, it's the one that keeps coming and going. I'm going to have it checked out soon. I really want to get back to the gym, I can feel myself getting fat...lord it's an awful feeling.
I'm also getting sick cause I'm a huge DUMBASS! I do not handle fast food well. Never have. It gives me the...poopies. It makes me bloated, gassy and nauseous. Never fails, never. To eat it for days straight (that man and his "I've not had a burger in 15 months, do you know they made pizza with ketchup and deli meat? I want a real steak, not ground beef patties..." It was never ending!!!) has me paying big time! I've actually been tossing and turning in bed cause my stomach just won't stop. I had a blessing yesterday after spending a good amount of time on the potty (praying, to any and every God who was willing to listen, for mercy) and honest, I lost about 4 pounds...not of fat or of water weight, it was all beef, honest to goodness, moo, beef.
I've had burgers, steak, roast beef, goodness more beef like products. Dh loves beef and of course I'm saying "okay just this once since you are home." Now I'm "Mooing" on the darn toilet and dropping "Cow pies".
So I thought my image would be fitting. "Dear Kat, You are FAT! Put the damn burger down!"
I'm hoping to lose about 8-10 pounds this month, putting me at about 194-196. I'm guessing that if I don't come anywhere close y'all know what's been going on and I give you permission to tag my ear and use my fat arse for beef kabob's.
Today I did pretty good, about 1200 in my cal range though I really need to add in more water, take out that soda (150 in soda! Goodness!) and add in more veggies...buy more veggies, only had enough for the kids during dinner.
Look Maw, I'm doing it!
Love you all!

Goodness, finally after 15 months he is home!
We got there to the base on time and waited for hours. Finally they all came through the door in formation and goodness, you could tell on dh's face he was not happy. They had landed about 2 hours prior and had been doing random stupid things. They actually waited outside the door in formation for about 30 mins....just sitting there "for the right timing". GRRRRR
They came through the gates and were dismissed and you should have heard the cheering! we met up, hugged, went to grab his bags, said bye to one person, didn't see his bags so I took the kids to the car, drove back and he tossed them in the trunk. Honest, we were not in the mood to be chatting with people, crying and acting all out in public.
We then went looking for food but at about 2/3 am everything is closed! We got the kids mcdonalds, got home and opened gifts, put them in bed and SCREWED like a couple who hadn't done so in about 15 months.
I slept well.

okay first off, Thank you.
I've not been on the comp and just had to check on you guys and what do I find? Even when I'm not here to support you all, you all are here to support me. Thank you.
Dh is not home.
My phone and net went down on tuesday evening and I just got it up about 30 mins ago. OMG, MORE THAN 24 HOURS WITH NO NET...OR PHONE!!! HONEST, I WAS DOWN TO TEARS...JUST SAT AT THE COMP. FOR A BIT AND THEN CHECKED THE PHONE, BACK TO THE COMP...it took a while before I could admit that they both were gone...I still won't admit that I have a problem though... I went all crazy yesterday trying to get at least the phone but they couldn't do a thing.
So last night we all got dressed up and ready to head out to the base. I went to the neighbors to check the flight info, via phone, one last time. Lucky I did, the flight had been delayed and it seems that the base doesn't get the info until after the net does. I had to haul the children and myself back across the street (in the rain) and to bed.
They were a bit upset about it, the baby totally tired and crying and the girls unable to understand why we weren't going.
Of course I looked at it as more time to do more things! YAY ME FOR STAYING SO POSITIVE! WHOO HOO!
I have until about 1000 tonight to get a move on. Right now it's 5 before 10 so that gives me 12 hours! I'm gonna get that new bed set and ...maybe even something naughty to wear tonight!
Don't judge me, you know you would too.
Love you all!-Kat

So, if things could go wrong, they would now. LOL
Yes he wants to see me and the kids but as many other military wives know, this whole getting back together thing is totally stressful. Being gone for 15 months takes it toll and I'm trying to make it go as smoothly as possible. Yes, the house will be clean and all when he comes back, no biggie. The biggie is coming back home to a home that is no longer what you knew and that's the biggie here.
He had packed up his stuff to get it out of our way and yes that was his doing but how would it feel to come home and see all your stuff gone even if you did do it.
Readapting is the hardest part of it all. Being a stranger in your own home and to your own children. The baby won't even know him, his clothes will be musty smelling, his office space gone, the dishes not in the same cabinets...heck even the furniture is different. He won't even know how to find a can of soup at this rate.
When he left the whole idea was to making things easier for me, a now single mom with 3 kids. With him coming home his fear (and mine) is that it won't feel like home and he will be lost. It's a common fear that comes from miltary families.
Yes the house will be clean, no the basement won't be finished...or the garage but none of that is the point. Where is the welcome home banner, the yellow ribbon around the tree, last time he came home from a tour to iraq he was in tears days later when he "realized" that no one did anything to celebrate his return.
I'm trying my best to "do something to celebrate his return" but it's such short notice. I was going to order a banner but they said there is no way it can get here in time. I wanted to get my hair done, get a hotel maybe and find someone to watch the kids but with this notice I'm not seeing any of that getting done.
As for the house, it's down to cleaning my room and the kids room and then making sure the monsters don't destroy what I've done. I'm going to try to get to the thrift store for the ribbon and maybe I can do that.
As of now, he left me a message saying he was packed up and enroute! It seems that he will be here as planned.
