We recently PCSed to another state and this time had the Army handle it all. Well once everything was moved and unpacked, my husbands Oakleys and the hardware to 2 cribs are missing. Luckily we already got reimbursed. With the mishaps that happened, I will continue to let the army handle it again!!! I loved not having to pack a single box or load a uhaul!! Next time I will let the movers unpack the boxes though!! LOL
Wow, where to start. Since DH came back from Iraq, he was completely different and well, we drifted apart and are now divorced. After I left him, I reconnected with an old boyfriend from 12 years ago. He was the first guy I was ever engaged to and the first guy I ever truly loved. His wife died in January and he and I have rekindled our relationship. We both have 3 kids each and are madly in love with eachother. But how do we ease our families into this? I mean we ARE adults and capable of making our own decisions, but still want to be respectful to our families as well as his late wife's fam.
I have to admit that it pays to have a husband who is an excellent soldier. He never says no to anything that is asked of and is constantly volunteering for stuff. We have found that with all that he does, it often makes it hard for them to tell him no to anything. He wants time off, he gets it. And for Thanksgiving, the FRG got together a food box full of goodies for us. Even though we didn't need it, it was nice to see appreciation for everything my husband does!
Ok, our neighbors are really good friends of ours and we all get along and hang out all the time. The only bad thing is they smoke in their house and we don't like our kids around the smoke indoors. How do we politely tell them that is why we hardly ever stay that long when we are there? We hang out outside most of the time so it isn't a problem. :(
A friend of a friend lost her baby girl today. A couple of days ago, their 10 month old little girl was taking a nap and got tangled in her blanket. When they found her she was blue. They did all sorts of testing and she was completely unresponsive. She was technically brain dead. They took the baby off life support today so that she could now rest peacefully. I have a baby that's 8 months and I don't know what I would do if I found her like that. RIP baby girl.
Yesterday I posted about a friend of a friend who lost their baby girl. Well they did a noble thing and decided to donate the baby's organs and today, although she is now in heaven, she saved the lives of 2 other babies already. Sometimes when God closes a door, he opens windows.
So my brother and his wife are in the midst of a divorce. Which is a good thing. Well we just found out that she is pregnant (thankfully not by my brother) but by the man she has been seeing whenever her and my brother would be separated. Sad thing is, she will now have 4 kids by 4 different dads. Her first born, she lost custody of, 2nd one she gave up for adoption when he was 6 months old, 3rd one (which is my brother's daughter) they share joint custody, and now another one on the way. Did I mention the guy is married with 4 kids of his own?!
I have started watching an alomst 3 year old who is our neighbor's kid (and also friends of ours). I feel so awful for the kids though. The 3 year old is always dirty, ratty hair, and yesterday when I changed her pull up she had a very nasty diaper rash. The kind that the child gets if she is wearing the same diaper all day. Their house is always messy and they smoke in there. We are going to be moving in about 2 months and my husband and I have wondered about calling CPS or the dad's unit officer. We live on base and there are strict standards and they are failing all of them.
So my BF and I have been seeing eachother for a couple of months. I am divorced and he is a widower. I am the first woman he has been with since his wife passed away but we have actually known eachother for 13 years and dated 13 years ago. He hasn't told any of his friends or family, especially anoyone associated with his late wife, that he is dating anyone. This relationship has gotten real serious and I hate being a secret. I know he has to be respectful to the family and everyone, but what is a good way for him to talk to everyone?
So after 10 years of a fake marriage, perfect and happy on the outside and mental/emotional abuse behind closed doors, I finally left him. In the last month I have rekindled an old flame from my first love/fiance. His wife passed away in January. And we are madly in love and ready to move forward. Problem is, how do we ease our family into this relationship? We want to be respectful to them, especially his late wife's family. We also each have 3 kids that need to be eased in as well.
I have been with my husband for 10 years, and he still looks at me the way he did when we were dating and he can still make my heart skip a beat and flutter with just a certain look. He is such an amazing man even though I haven't been the best wife. He has always been a very sexual person but I really haven't been and we would have sex probably once a week. And the best part, is that he is fine with that! Has never guilted me or made me feel back. But hell, after being apart for 11 months so far and 3 more to go with this deployment, let's just say we will be busy for a while!!!
