My week and a 1/2 + more

For the last week and a half I have been getting ready for my daughter and son to go to school. Faith started on Monday and Tristan starts kindergarten on Thursday just for one day. He will start normal K on Monday. I was fine when Faith started school because she was and still is a handful and was so ready for that break during the week. Tristan on the other hand is the total opposite.  I think this time him starting school is going to hit me hard. He has been home alone with me from a year old.

I have been trying to get my house clean for a little over a week now and it seems like it takes me so long to do anything now. My house is only one level with 3 small bedrooms a tiny living room that is suppose to be a living room slash dining room but I do not know how you can get more than 2 couches in there and still be room for a dining room. and a tiny kitchen. This is what the government gives us to live in (For people who have been in the military for over 17 years). It kills me because they have given people that have just got in with a family brand new houses that are four times the room I have because its a ploy to get them to stay in longer. Back to the cleaning it takes me so long these because of the fibromyalgia. I am in so much pain or not even able to get out of the bed, also my friend had to go in for emergency surgery and I have had her 4 kids for the last week (there ages are from 1-7).

I need a vacation from everything because I am so burnt out. I want to go back to my friends house in Canada and stay with him for two weeks. I loved it no kids or husband to bother me and no HOUSE to clean. I went and saw him 2 years ago before Halloween. He lives in Calgary. It is beautiful, made me home sick for Washington State. I lived in Washington while I was in Jr. High and again for the last 3 years of being in  the Coast Guard, and another 2 years after I got out. I love Washington I miss the rain and the overcast cool weather.

We are up for new orders this next summer and we are hoping to go to Alaska or Washington. I can't wait and hope we can get one of the 2.

Ok, I am going to log off I need to get my homework done. If not I can ramble for hours.


  1. Hi Andrea - can you get the all the kids in the house to help you with cleaning? Even the little ones can spray windex, or use a swiffer. Just a thought!

  2. I have tried everything. Faith is 8 and I swear she acts like she is 2. Tristan helps a lot as long as big sister isn't around. I would so love them to help.
