Just The Two of Us

It’s something I had better get used to and quick. Come in about two weeks time it’s just going to be Aaron and I for the next 6-7 months. I am getting a crash course what it’s like to be a single working mom.

Everything falls on me. Lunches, dishes, daycare drop off and pick up. Getting everything ready the night before. Everything. I am a little bit overwhelmed. Eric has done a lot around the house and has been key in getting us all out the door and to daycare and work on time. He’s out for the next two nights (for work) so it’s something that I am getting used to.

If tonight’s dinner (frozen pizza) and my kitchen is any indicator it’s going to be a messy (household wise) 6 months.

I wrote a huge post the other night that got lost. I got into the nitty gritty on my feelings of Eric’s upcoming deployment and my feelings of him being Aaron’s primary caregiver as I’ve been working fulltime and going to school part time. Alas it’s not meant to be blogged about at this time I wrote it on my lap top and it overheated and shut down and I haven’t been able to recover it.

The lap top was given to me and Eric just ordered me a new one so hopefully I won’t lose a post again. I haven’t had a new PC since ’04 so it’s needed and overdue.

Today could’ve been a lot worse considering how it started by me discovering Eric had unplugged the crock pot last night to charge my iPod and I woke up to not cooked chili. (I am not mad as we only have ONE electrical outlet in the entire kitchen and he was doing me a favor as I wear my iPod at work and it get’s me through my day. It is encouraged, not something I would normally do in the workplace.)

I was 2.5 hours late for work as I had to take Aaron to get his blood drawn. I expected a lot of tears and hard day ahead of me, but it wasn’t that bad. The first lab we went to sent us to the hospital to the out patient lab to get Aaron’s blood drawn as they “couldn’t process” his one requisition. I took him to lab opened early to save some time, instead of waiting for the one I normally go to open which has awesome staff that are great with kids. I have to say to lady who collected Aaron’s blood this morning was awesome and worth the wait. He didn’t flinch or make a peep. She has an angel’s touch. And I was so proud him.

My little angel is sleeping and that’s my queue to clean the kitchen and make tomorrows lunches a chore I hate with a passion.

I Got a B!

Biology is done! I am exhausted. Working fulltime and going to school part-time is not recommended!

My hard work paid off. I have banged off one of many pre-reqs for Nursing. A C + was what I needed, I got a mid B. Not too shabby considering I have had a hard time finding time to study with work. It’s time to hit the hay.

Night All.

Crap I Am Dealing With But Shouldn't

I  have been busy beyond belief! Working full time and going to school part time will do that to you.

-Refilling perscriptions for Aaron because people have been over dosing him!

-Crabby people at work

-WHEN Eric will be leaving. We have an idea as to where but NOTHING has been confirmed. Families and sailors usually have months if not a YEAR notice for long deployments. We have a tentative date which keeps changing, which is messing up my plan because I can't plan anything!. 

- A nagging cold/wheezing phlegmy cough that will NOT go away.

- Insecurities at work. (I know one is to not blog about work, the job I do is easy the people not so much.)

- Vancouver rioters - I am ashamed of my city and the assholes that premeditated to riot.

That is all.

Oh Hockey Day!

Today is a glorious day! I am headed to Vancouver in a few short hours sans boys. It's game day for game 2 of the Stanley Cup final between the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins. *For those of you who don't follow hockey*

I'll be donning this:

 and sipping cold beer to wash down the food I shouldn't be eating as I hoot and holler at the big screen TV among friends.

It's playoff hockey in Vancouver folks! I think this may be bigger than the Olympics! Downtown tonight is going to be a gong show and I plan to be there in the thick of things.

And it's going to be in the 20's. (68-75 F) for my American friends. Oh Hockey Day!
