(646) Grocery shopping or lack there of

I've been doing this thing where I'm not going grocery shopping until I've eaten all the meal type food in my house. (Freeze pops, pushups, condiments, snacks, etc don't count). I can't even remember how long it's been since I bought groceries. Pretty much I have PB&J sandwiches, chicken nuggets, and soup left. I'm going to try and make it all last until the end of the month. I'm trying to be less wasteful when it comes to food and sometimes I ended up buying stuff that I never ate. Sometimes I get addicted to a certain food and buy a lot of it and then I get sick of it and it just sits there. Since it's just me at home right now this plan is doable, but it definitely wouldn't be if I had kids or the hubby was home. I am also learning to want what I have instead of having what I want. I am really craving some spaghetti though. Oh and this isn't because I have a lack of funds to buy groceries I just wanted to eat the stuff I have before I buy new stuff. Another plus is that I don't have to deal with the grocery store which I really hate. :)


(645) Are you ready for the deployment to be over?

That question was directly asked to me and I didn't know the answer. She told me that I was supposed to say yes.

The truth is, I'm not ready. I have no idea how to get ready. Beyond the obvious cleaning and organizing, how can I get ready for this. I want him home yes. I'm also very nervous about it.

For the first time we will spend a great deal of time living together. Our record is 4 months. We've been married almost 18 months and so far he's been deployed 10-11 of those months. Most of our marriage has been spent deployed. We were lucky and got to talk every day on the phone for an hour or more. I'm scared our communication will get worse and we wont actually talk about anything.

Once the deployment is over what will I countdown to? Well I guess now that we are PCSing I can look forward to that.

I'm scared we'll get in a rut in our relationship. I'm scared that once the excitement wears off I'll be sad. I'm scared I'll go crazy during February waiting to figure out when exactly he's coming home. I'm scared to get too excited because there's still about a month left.

What if we both have changed so much that we're not compatible anymore? I'm scared of the transition between not seeing him and seeing him all the time. I'm scared we'll get sick of each other. I'm scared I wont be able to get everything done that I want done before he gets here.

I feel like I'm stuck in a rut this month. I have so much I want to get done but I seem to lack the motivation to do any of it.


(644) I secretly like when...

... my husband has to wake up early at work because then he asks me to call him and wake him up. Then I get to talk to him for a second time that day, even if it's just for a minute, I still love hearing him. :) Guess it's not a secret anymore lol :)


(643) Bible in 90 days

I am going to attempt to do the "Bible in 90 days". I have been a Christian since I was a kid and I haven't read more than a couple books of the bible. I have always wanted to but it seemed very intimidating. This plan breaks it up so it doesn't seem as difficult to do. I just have to stick with doing it every day.
