Not a Happy Camper

Two words Military and Tricare....those two words give me the willies!! All I wanted to do today was try to get Xavier his referral but it never fails how the docs at Madigan and tricare always give me the run around. Makes me so mad at the way they talk to me. When we first were married I would cry and cry when I knew I had to make a call to tricare. But these days I give it right back to them. And they hate it. I'm really not sure who this one wench thinks she is but wow she pissed me off. I'm so not the confrontational type and I keep things to myself but not this time. Hopefully it goes through this time or next time I have to call it won't be pretty. Sorry I had to get that off my chest.

Happy Being an Army wife to me Day...

Day 10: this is what you get when a 3yr old takes your picture.

I haven't had a good nights sleep in over 7 years! I'm totally being serious. My husband snores like its his J-O-B and my almost 4 yr old thinks he's still a baby and wants to sleep in the middle of us. Last night I didn't fall asleep till after midnight, mind you I went to bed at 9:30. I'm running low on sleep and I'm getting cranky. I've tried everything possible to keep Sekota in his own bed but nothing seems to work. I'm not against him crying it out but when my other son gets up in anytime of the night, he'll be up all night long! So that means I can't put up a gate and call it a night. Maybe we just need another bedroom for me :) I feel like Mike's last deployment completely messed up Sekota's sleep patterns. Before Mike deployed I would lay him in his bed with no problems, then we move back to PA and everything changes. So if anyone out there has any ideas please feel free to share them with me. I'm willing to try anything.

Day 6: My new hutch that I love!!!

Just A Little Snow

Growing up in  PA we always got a ton of snow in the winter, so naturally wherever I'm at I want some snow!! I don't need a ton some a few inches for the kids to be able to make a snowman. Is that too much to ask?? This winter here in WA just doesn't feel like winter. I took Xavier to school today and it was 50 outside! That's Spring weather isn't it?? Anyway I guess I live through all my friends and family that post how cold and how much snow they get in PA! Speaking of PA, I really miss home. Who knows when I'll make it home again :( blah

Day 4 Hanging Out :)

Back at it.....

So today the hubby went back to work and Xavier headed off to school :( I thought by now I would be glad for them both to be gone but not at all. I felt like it was the first day of school letting him go:( I'm ready to home school!!! With a huge smile on his face my little guy was beside himself to finally be going back to school.

365 take 2

I tried my hardest last year to complete the 365 picture challenge and only made it a few months so I've decided I'm gonna try it again! Not to mention I really enjoyed doing it. So I'm posting 2 photos today.

Day 1 Sekota and Mommy

Day 2 ........This is what its like trying to get Christmas pictures!

Im Back!

Well hello out there in the blog world! It's been awhile since I've blogged. I was having a brain fart then just got lazy and didn't feel like it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We had a very nice holiday together, getting Michael home with us for 2 whole weeks! I've been spoiled! A lot :) We take turns sleeping in and doing breakfast (I however do breakfast way better, I cook while Michael feeds them fruit bars).

Anyway Santa was good as always and the Bucci boys have all the toys to prove it :) This has been one of my favorite ones so far! Hoping and praying his orders change but it looks like he won't be home next Christmas.....yuck, poo and blah! We take what we can get and enjoy every minute of the time we do have.

As I was taking our tree down this year I noticed we have more ornaments that say new home then we do any others!! Just thought that was funny and kinda sad. Ft. Lewis will be our last duty station before Michael retires so no more moving. Thank gosh!

Happy 2012 :)
