I guess it's about time I start a blog and let those I don't get to talk to everyday now know how we are doing. I spend from 8 am till 2:30pm usually by myself (and the 4 dogs and turtle). Hubby is deployed and the kids are in school. I am usually up late into the morning if not all night talking to hubby on the computer (which is usually spent waiting for him to get some down time to chat or for him to get off work) and catching up on sleep between 8 and noon. The kids start getting home around 2:30 then it's homework, laundry, cooking, dishes and baths. Alot of people look at my life and say "I don't know how she does it" It's not alwyas easy, but its whats normal for me and I see every day as a new gift from God. I love my family, my friends, and my life.
