So, I didn't blog yesterday. And I might not get to it tonight. I'm having a super crappy evening. In fact, i wanted to get out of my house, but I didn't want to go anywhere. So I am just sitting in my suburban. You can do that in El Paso in the winter, you know. Kids are all in bed, and CPT is ironing.
Let's see, highlights of the day. I forgot about a super important work deadline that was due Sunday night and remembers it after the kids got on the bus. So I worked on it from 730-830am. Then I went walking with Kari.
Then I went with Kim to the Jewelry box and to Bassett center. We looked around for a while and has fun. We met CPT for lunch at L&J's, then he and I went driving around looking for suburbans.
We had decided that it would be cheaper to just buy one a few years newer than our old one rather than fix ours up. So we drove down alameda st looking for deals. Things were expensive. We did find one for $5900 that had super high miles that was a '01 but it had a cracked windshield.
Next, we had Tom get the kids from the bus and we went to check out one from Craigslist. They lived on pos over by Kim's kids school. And come to find out, CPT and the dude knew each other, and were deployed at the same time. Different BTRY's, but still, small world. And I loved the Suburban.
It was a white, 2001. It had the 3rd row seating and leather or pleather seats. Working AC. Lol. Butt Warmers. Door locks and keyless entry. Fancy bells and whistles. I won't know what to do with myself! And it's a 4x4 and gets 18 MPG or so. That's not bad considering mine gets 11 now. They wanted $5000 for it. Good price too!
We wrote them a check for the 4th, and said that if my PayPal transfer came in faster, we'd let them know. I keep 1/2 my savings there so I can't spur of the moment buy stuff. So as soon as the money hits the bank, we r going back! So excited! If I wasn't sitting in the truck right now, I'd so link you up with photos...
We came back home, CPT dropped me off, picked Eme up, and he took her to piano. I stayed with the other kids, and got ready for Cub Scouts. I planned a game and extra activity in case we had extra time.
We has pancakes for dinner, then CpT and I decided it was time to fight. Living the dream, you know. And before I knew it, it was 645. And we had to be to scouts at 700. He was going separate so he could leave early. I got all the kids, dropped off Jim and picked up Leo, and headed to church.
We played our game, and did our activity, and at 730 CPT came and did his part. Designing the pinewood derby cars. I don't know how to do that, and he agreed to help. After the meeting, we loaded back up, and headed home, collecting the correct kids.
And put our kids to bed, and continued the argument. At which point, I got so upset I left in tears and am currently blogging from my phone in the front seat of the suburban. I don't know why I am telling you all of this. Like you wanna know all of my nastiness. You just wanna hear the happy. He's home and everything is grand. Well, sometimes it is hard. It's hard to have to live apart for a year than suddenly be back together again and make everything work. To have to change daily plans and routines and stuff. Just life in general is hard, I think, even without a deployment/redeployment to deal with. And anyone who says that it isn't isn't telling you everything.... Life is messy. And unpleasant sometimes. But then, that's why we so appreciate the good times. They happy times. The peaceful time. I'm hoping that some happy, peaceful times are right around the corner for me...
