A little update on my life.

Life has been a bit hectic, tiresome to say the least. Having two little ones so close in age has taken its tole on me. Too much to do and so little time or no time to do it. I’ve also been trying to lose weight, which is a challenge of its own, trying to coordinate feedings and work outs around Adryana’s school time is hard work. Not to mention once I’m ready and totally into my work out little Edward gets fussy. Which totally sucks because I’m really into it and well he is a baby ‘what do I expect’?? Right ??  I know, trust me – I get it. It’s just a battle I’ve been having to deal with lately. 

Also, our time here in Texas will be coming to an end. My husband will be transitioning back to ‘Sea Duty’ meaning we will be stationed near the ocean and deployments will be on their way. So, we will slowing get things ready to move. It’s going to happen  within the next 4 months, a bit stressful,  but we gotta roll with the punches. 

Am I the only one that feels, like they just can’t catch a break ??

Through it all, I’ve learned to lean on GOD. I get so caught up in my “wants” that i sometimes don’t  see the bigger picture. GOD opened my eyes and just told me to take it easy. Right now my duties are taking care of our little munchkins, once they get a bit older, I will have more time to myself. For now I need to just deal with it as best as I can. {It’s definitely easier said then done} but I’m really trying. Watching them play and giggle seriously makes everything worth it. Right now its all about the special moments, I’ll have the rest of my life to get fit. For now its me and them. 

 

PS: Sorry there is no BittyBentos post today, Adryana is grounded which means ‘no bento’. On a good note here is a couple of pics of the boys.

Military Monday – Pack it up

Military Monday - Pack it up @ SewFatty

So, I’m linking up with Eights on the Move for a fun Military Monday each Monday will be a different military topic to talk about. That way you ladies can get to know, more of the military side of me. I found Ashley’s blog through Kelly over at Hiccups and Sunshine, and was totally intrigued and I just had to jump on board with this fun link-up. If you are in the Military and would like to share your mini story, please do so under comments. I would love to read all about your experience. 

This weeks topic is : 

Did you pack one room at a time? Did you leave it up to the military? Beg & plead for family and friends to help? Hoard all the cardboard boxes you could find? Live on paper plates & solo cups for weeks after you packed your kitchen?Once you arrived & got settled, how would you have done your packing differently? Did you feel like your plan was successful? Will you do it that same way again?

We moved from San Diego, CA to Kingsville TX. We picked up some cardboard boxes from local market stores and also bought the plastic containers. We loaded the Uhaul in San Diego and in Avondale, AZ which is where I was currently living since my hubby was going in and out for underway periods. We did it ourselves .. YAY!! Granted I was 2 months pregnant with my son Ashton. He had requested a advanced pay, which we didn’t get till “moving/driving day” which was very stressful because we just didn’t know if we would have enough money to get down to Texas. God always has a way of making everything better, we arrived to Kingsville, TX. safe and sound.

Once we were here, we had to offload the uhahl and start organizing….. (blah seriously wake me up when this is over). We ate out for the first few days since, we wanted to check out our new hood. 🙂 We unpacked all day, we would take eating breaks (like the ones in the photo) and of course we still had to make that “Welcome Home Shopping Trip” you know that one where you go to Wally world and buy all the necessities (ex. detergent, groceries, toilet paper and so on…). We only had Adryana, so it was nice that she was older and very helpful to say the least. We finally got settled in and everything was great. Soon realized that this town was very small. This town has grown on me(us), but I am looking forward to leaving here and starting a new chapter of our lives.

A few things I would change and will do for our upcoming move, is get rid of our JUNK NOW and not later. I do not want to carry junk with me. We will be having the military move us this time, which i’m super excited about. Everything else will just fall into place.. as of right now hubby chose 2 open orders Greece and San Diego. We will soon know where we end up going..Cant wait.. only 8 more months and Goodbye Kingsville, TX
