well i have a feeling the rest of this week and probably next week is gonna be long and uncool!! chad is sick right now he came home Tuesday sick with i am not sure what i am really thinking the flu cause hes really tired and sore and has a fever etc etc and yesterday i noticed kk and Caleb were acting very fussy and now kk has thrown up twice today and just don't not look like she feels well and Caleb has a stuffy nose and he is very upset by it and he gets even more mad when i clean it with that lovely snot sucker (lol) but hopefully the kids will not get it to bad as soon as chad gets home this afternoon i am gonna make a quick stop to the store and get a some Gatorade and a few cases of water and maybe some quick and easy food cause i think cooking on top of all this would be a little to hard and time consuming right now!

other then that we have not really been up to much just the regular dailys i have a new goal everyday and thats to clean the kitchen and living room first thing in the morning and then to do at least 2 loads of clothes from start to finish my biggest problem is the finish i had like 5 loads of clothes on my couch and that was my turning point lol so far i am doing pretty good and have been putting stuff right away or having Cheyenne if shes home from school when i do the laundry also next week i am gonna start doing get the weight off blog post and post what i have eaten and is i exercised at the end of everyday and hopefully i can get rid of this "momma belly" ;) if ya wanna join in please do as it would probably be extra motivation!! well until next time later guys!

our day...

well we kinda changed our mind about moving well at least for now we are still gonna move but we are gonna wait until after the holidays cause it would be way to stressful trying to move right now so in about 2 or 3 months we are soooo gonna find a house to rent around here and i am cool with that it will be so nice to have carpet and a fenced yard again the only 2 things i really care about when it comes to finding a house to rent well i also care about the neighborhood but who doesn't!! i am a little upset this week as i got an email saying they were probably shutting finegan down (the kids school) and if thats the case they will go to a school i am not sure i want them to go to they are suppose to make some kinda announcement on the 21st we will see i guess here's to hoping it stays open cause its gonna suck if not!! other them that there is really not much going on we have been pretty lazy today i am hoping chad gets here soon cause he should really be home sleeping cause he is sick ;( but thats the navy for ya grrr!! well thats all i got i am gonna do a list in a few minutes thou ;)

OK i am grateful to be so blessed i am trust me, but all i can say is WOW!!! OK on to my story Friday me and chad and the baby's were driving around looking for houses that were for rent and we saw a ton of stuff on the curb of someones house and a big poster board that said free and there was a lot of nice wood furniture one being a nice furniture store type futon frame and since Cheyennes cheap walmart futon frame is messed up i was super excited so we got that and then a cool little antique night stand and then a little pine dresser all of which looked great so we get home and unload them and we were about to start cleaning them up before bringing them and and OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there were tiny roaches EVERYWHERE and i mean EVERYWHERE in the bed alone there were over 100 it was INSANE i have never in my life seen that many roaches and they were everywhere in all 3 things so we left and got some roach spray and used 2 cans on the 3 of them and after spraying and cleaning and taking the things apart we decided to paint the bed and we are finally almost done with it and we finally got rid of all the roaches on it so all in all i am very grateful for a free bed cause Cheyenne needed it but man i fee so sorry for the people that lived in the house this stuff came from ;(

Maybe Moving... I HOPE

So Tuesday we get dirty little note on the door saying our carport is unsat and we need to clean it and we have like 48 hrs to comply or else and it pissed me off cause the carport was not dirty it has bikes on it and other outside kids toys but not trash or junk etc etc and then i was like whatever and got over it and then chad came home yesterday and saw it and got pissed and wanted me to look for rentals and it got me mad again to and i found a couple awesome rentals so i think we are gonna move off base and i have to say i am pretty excited about it not only will we be saving money if we get move in the one we both loved we will have a MUCH nicer place to live and its a lot bigger and has a fireplace (something i have always wanted) and its just nice if you can't tell i am super excited about this possible move!! the only thing i worry about is how soon we will start getting our bah once we put our 30 days notice in anyone out there know???

oh and in other news my diapers made it here today and they are so cute and look great i can't even tell the that 10 are seconds and the other 5 that are gently used do not even look washed or used at all to me so that's pretty awesome so as soon as they come out of the dryer little Caleb will have enough diapers for probley 2 days so that's awesome cause washing every day was a bit stressful!!

i have a feeling i'm in trouble

well last night i made a double batch of chocolate chip banana muffins and i tried a bite last night and they were good and that was that but this morning when i woke up i was so hungry and ate about 4 mini muffins and 1 large one and man they were so good it was like i could not get enough and then it dawned on me they have a ton of chocolate in them and i have not had chocolate since i gave birth to Caleb cause there is 2 things my breastfed babys can not tolerate and thats chocolate and caffeine and i just ate a ton of chocolate so i have a feeling today is gonna be a rough day for Caleb and i feel so bad about it!!!!!
