Can I rant? Yes? Good.

So, I woke up today already feeling rushed. I was supposed to get up early and set out the recycling and be productive before I went grocery shopping before it was time to wait for the deliverers to get here with our new mattress(woo new mattress). I didn’t get up early and I didn’t set the recycling out.

I have my coffee because I can’t function without it, I make the little one breakfast and skip my breakfast…which always sets me up for a day of horrible eating. Gah. We get out the door and decide to check out the local farmers market, which was super neat and I found most of the produce I needed for less than I would’ve paid at walmart. I finish grocery shopping and come home to wait for the mattress which was supposed to be delivered between 3:30 and 5:30. I do this weird thing when I’m waiting for something where I just can’t start anything productive. I just don’t want to get into something then they show up. Not that I can focus on one thing more than a few minutes anyways. So, I sit down by the window  so I can see when they get here(I swear I’m not a creeper!) and work on the book I’ve been reading. I sit and read sit and read sit and read andddd finish my book around 5:30. I figure they could still show up because I know people run late, no big deal. I do some other things I needed to do and by 8 I still haven’t heard anything so I put Kaylee to bed and then I get a phone call from the driver two and a half hours late! Honestly, it’s not even the being late thing that bugs me I just feel like 8 is a little late to be delivering things. He tells me he’s getting ready to deliver but he doesn’t have my frame and do I just want him to drop off the mattress and I can go get the frame tomorrow.  I have a pretty small car so I told him I’d need him to deliver it all together he tells me that’s fine and we will reschedule for Saturday. I was bummed I didn’t get the new bed when I expected but all well. I go about my evening and get into bed around 9:30 and play on the ipad. At TEN O’CLOCK I get a phone call from a number I didn’t know so I didn’t answer. They call 2 more times and I call back and it is the sales rep I bought the mattress off of telling me they can deliver the mattress and frame TONIGHT! Is this not crazy to anyone else?! She said that if I don’t do it tonight they probably won’t be able to deliver for another week or so. So here I am at 11pm waiting for my mattress to be delivered.

I’m glad to get it today and not have to wait but 11 is a little late. Maybe I’m just getting’s probably that. 


Welcome To My Blog!

My husband left for basic training in September 2013 and while I cried my eyes out and ate all the junk food I was using my google-fu to try to find military spouse blogs. But not just any military spouse blog, I wanted one where they were fairly new to the military life. Although the ones who’ve been in the military awhile are great they weren’t really blogging about the things I had questions about. I know I could have asked buttttt I didn’t. Then the new ones I found weren’t active or weren’t in the same branch my hubby was in. So, I decided to make one.

That isn’t my only reason though. I’m currently trying to be healthier and I’d like a place to talk about my struggles and success, more on that later though.

Also I wanted a place to talk about my love of cooking, reading and crafting.

So really I just wanted a place to rant about all the things going on in my life. That’s what a blog is for though right?!
