12:57 pm - worried now...
Okay, I just looked at her tags and 90% of her entries are now private...I am worried now...Did something happen and I was too lazy to come on here in forever and then I missed it?? I really hope everything is okay!!!

09:37 pm - Mother Nature for the lose!!!
WELL...Kaylee will be 2 months and 2 weeks old tomorrow and guess what present I got??? THATS RIGHT!!! I got my period again!!! Almost 3 years without one and BOY I forgot how much they SUUUUUCCCCKKKK!!!!! I stopped nursing her (for selfish reasons, I wanted to take my weight loss pills and lose weight fast, but I gained some back, instead of losing it because I quit nursing ) and I really want to start again. I still have milk there and it actually squirts out when I squeeze...LOL...TMI....HAHAAA!!!! I started taking Fenugreek yesterday and have felt a slight difference today...I have also been nursing Kaylee on each side for at least 10 minutes each before I give her the bottle to stimulate production...Any other suggestions??? Anyone??? I really want to do this again and I am determined to do it!!! She is making the swallowing noises and everything like they say she should and she is only taking 4oz of formula after she nurses versus the 6oz she eats without the boob...ANY ADVICE IS GREAT!!!

11:50 am - A book???
I woke up at 2am Thursday morning. It came to me...I really want to write a book...Not just any kind of book though...I want to write a book as a sort of guide to first time deployements (for spouses/kids/family members...I want to include a story from as many people and as many states as I can and have each person that submits a story to me, to include a top 5 or 10 to surviving the first deployment...All branches, kids, parents, wives, husbands and even the deployed persons...I want to know what you/they went through during that first time away, I want know what was missed, what was gained, what was lost and what was found and how contact was kept, how the homecomings and the goodbyes went, you know, THE WHOLE STORY!!!

Is this a good idea? I mainly want to market it towards FRG's and other organizations that help seperated families. I dont just want those that were sent to war, those that were also sent on unaccompanied tours are also very welcome!!! 

I am going to try and start it next month if I get the courage to start it!!! Would all of you guys submit your story for this???? I want you first and foremost, because every one of your stories are different, intriging (SP?) and one of a kind!!!

Let me know what you think? Would you have bought or wanted a book like this going through your first deployment/seperation from your spouse, just to get a little insight as to how things roll?

Also, HOLLY....What was the website you used to publish your book yourself?? Thanks hun, hope the vacation went well!!!

Loves and kisses from me and the girls!!!

03:03 pm - Back to the grind!!!!

So I took my measurements today...I weighed in at 188lbs...My goal after 6 months is 130. Not sure if that is a reasonable goal, but thats where I want to be before I start my Major in school and where I want to be when Lee deploys later this year.

Here are the measurements:

I want to lose about 50 inches total, or gain muscle to make the inches look better!!! I am in a size 14/16 right now...I want to be in a size 10/12 by the 4th of July...Wish me luck!!!!

I also need some TUNES!!! I am getting bored with the music I have...What are your favorite running songs...

I started taking my MRC supplements yesterday (the ones I took to lose a bunch before Lee came home) and I feel great!!! I also have more energy and I have noticed that I am staying fuller longer!! WHOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!

12:00 pm - Bobby

One year ago today, a very close friend made a decision that forever changed his life and lead to his untimely death...Please, BUCKLE UP!!!!!!


I cannot believe it has been a year since the accident that ultimately killed Bobby!! He was in the house yesterday and early this morning...He was in my parents house Saturday when they were packing things up...My husband thinks I am nuts, but I know when he is here!!!! When he is around, I hear something about Alabama football, boy scouts, soccer, or I find his picture in a random stack of papers or in a drawer that it wasnt in before....Please, BUCKLE YOUR SEAT BELTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It could mean the difference between your death or a couple of bruises and the ability to walk away!!!!!!!

The other night (Friday night) I had my mom's saurkraut and cabbage rolls for dinner...As expected, I had gas and a couple BM's, but DD2 has had water poops since Saturday morning...No seeding, just water like...Still Mustard yellow and she is back to pooping 4-6 times, whereas the last 2 weeks it was once every other day...How long does it take for food from 3 days ago to pass through my milk? Is she still getting the effects of i? She is 6 weeks and 3 days old...I also thought it might be a growth spurt too...Any suggestions?? Thanks alot in advance!!!
