So I talked about starting a garden in the middle of fall like a complete idiot but I totally cheated when it came to the carrots growing and low and behold I now have a dinky little green thing growing! It is now my baby and my life. My husband heard me squealing over it last night and couldn't be less interested but it being the first green thing I haven't killed yet it is now the miracle of life in my house now. Tony the carrot broke through last night after we had put our Christmas tree up which was a complete and total nightmare due to Biggie and Mini Me fighting over who could put ornaments up faster... luckily nothing broke this year. Junior couldn't care any more for putting the stuff on the tree until his sisters made it a life or death situation to do so. The hubby in his normal grinchy life gagged when I asked him to put the tree together for us and refused to even look at it after it was all decorated and lit up. the kids were so proud of how the tree turned out we have 34836 bulbs and decorations in one area of the tree and nothing in another looks like a crack tree but they are happy. So the Grinch (my husband) has now officially tried to barf on the tree and scream curse words at my toilet seat cover which is a penguin head and body and fought putting up any Christmas stuff at all... It has now become my life mission to decorate this house to the point of him gagging every time he walks into the house because I LOVE CHRISTMAS and I don't give a shit that he doesn't any more. I will make this as painfully Christmasy I got a wreath on the front door, even a great door mat with Santa and a snow man on it and the kids have had Christmas movies on all day its been great... We will convert him one day. haha. We now are coming up on the last pay day before Christmas and every year he wants to bring up doing Christmas after Christmas and its something that I have considered but never want to do, not sure if it would really save any money or not but I love it on the day. It is about fifty degrees out and the kids are outside screaming and yelling rather than inside screaming and yelling. We feel its great to share the joy of our children with everyone around us in a 2 mile radius due to the loudness of the screams. Grinch and I are working on our finals for this week for our classes, I talked him into human sexuality class just to get him back into the swing of school, he wasn't too excited about it in the beginning but now that we are at the end of the class I think he has learned a little and appreciates taking the class. I on the other hand am finishing up Colonial America and Folklore which have been excellent classes and will be moving on the the American revolution and ww2 next. ( I know big time hop) Its nice that I am getting to the end of these classes now but not so sure on what to do after this due to us planning on moving in the middle of it as well. It will be interesting to see how the next year is going to go with all our moving and getting kids back into new schools again. The PCS season has been busy around here we have seen several families move in the last two months and just watch from the porch as the semis try to make their ways into the tiny road littered with cars. That's another thing we got fortunate about we are at the beginning of the road so it will be easy for a truck for us but bothersome to everyone else. haha. Our neighbors attached to us are a young family and the husband will be heading to Korea with his little family... Kind of glad we don't have to worry about a move like that. UGH! hopefully we will get lucky and we wont have to go cross country... that will be a pain....
A Princess and her Monkey
Once upon a time not so long ago there was a princess that lived in the clouds. She loved to play with her siblings and run and hide in makeshift forts they made out of items around the castle. Strawberries were her favorite treat and naptime was something that she did not like at all, but who could blame her? When you are young you are in charge of it all… So, she thought.
I guess bird brained doesn't go too far from me any more. My state inspection was up in August... Had no idea because I am oblivious to everything in the world apparently and this douche canoe of a gate guard where I live says that I need to get it done before I get pulled over.... Well now I'll get pulled over because you said something about it asshole... Searched all over the area to find a place to do the state inspection without a wait and could not get a hold of anyone until early this morning, the hubs can't meet me at the inspection place (that is on post because god forbid he be late to work.) and the guy at the shop says it will take all day... Well that was not amusing to hear when I have a three year old that literally wants to destroy everything in a store or throw a fit if he doesn't get a lolly pop at 8am because yolo... I was just lucky enough to get biggie and mini me on the bus before going to the shop and thought well its not that far of a walk home we have done it before on bikes its about (for a normal human or functional family about 15 minutes.) For me and my hellions it took 2 HOURS on bikes..... but without the girls it should be no problem waddling my fat ass and fighting with a three year old all the way back to the house in the 35 degree weather in the sun... it was shady all the way back to our house and I needlessly forgot juniors coat... I was able to get a neighbor to help me with the offer of a cheese Danish so that was good. We get home and by 0945 the shop calls and says the car is done....WOW...thanks....BUT I need a new battery and an alignment … so yea thanks 2020 just keep adding to it. And the dude was like "The battery is only $179.00 with installation and the alignment is only $99 …. yea fantastic news. (I was only planning on spending $20 on the damn inspection and these assholes come to just take it all... (they could have bought me dinner first...shoot)
So, grandma (81 this year) has been up my ass about keeping a journal of everything that is going on right now so here goes. Amelia is 9 and in 4th grade, Raynen is 5 and is in kindergarten and Rj is 3 and is home with me. We live in fort lee right now and my husband, Bobby (30 this year) has just had his 3rd spine surgery and now awaiting the promotion board (he is in the army) and finding out when we will be moving. I am 26 credits away from my BA in history. The coronavirus pandemic has been a pain in the ass and the 2020 presidential election was a complete dumpster fire. Yay 2020 and the best part was carol baskin and the memes from that world.
