A Whole Lot of Tears last night!

Last night was one of the hardest nights I have seen makenzie have in a long time!  When she came home from her Dad's house she immediately asked where Anthony was, I reminded her that he was gone for the next 2 weeks working for the Army and that he would be back soon.  Well a little while later I asked her to get her jammies on so we could get ready for bed and she started bawling! I asked her why she was crying and she didn't answer. I asked her if she was sad and she said yes, when I asked her why she was sad she said "because Anthony isn't here".  That broke my heart into about a million little pieces!!  I have alwasy known that Makenzie Loves Anthony like she loves her Dad, but I didn't know just how much she loved him and would miss him until last night!  We cuddled on the couch for a little bit, then I told her to find a marker and meet me in her room.  We looked at the calendar, circled the day that Anthony will be back and then put an "X" through Saturday and Sunday and I told her every night at bedtime will put an "X" through that day so we know how much longer it is until he will be home. When we went to bed, she started crying again because she just wanted Anthony there to tell her Goodnight and since they were working late last night he wasn't able to call her. I told her he would try later this week, but he was busy.  I also told her that he knows we miss him and that he misses us too and he is thinking about us as much as we are thinking about him!

 It might only be 2 weeks, but to her that is a long time.  I'm hoping that this will help prepare her for whenever he deploys again, but I know that won't be easy either!!  I'm hoping tonight is better, but i'm prepared for it not to be!

Wish us luck for the next 14 days!

Short Update!

So I have decided that I am going to try and make a little more time for myself because here lately I feel like I am running myself ragged around this house!! Not that i don't love doing things for my awesome Husband and my Amazing Daughter, I just feel like i need a little more time for myself! Whether that means 10 extra minutes of reading my book, or an extra 5 mins in the shower every day I will find someway to have more mommy time!

Anthony left this morning for 2 weeks of training, I'm hoping they fly by because I really do truly miss him when he's gone.  He may drive me nuts sometimes when he is here, but by tomorrow I will want him back home!

Makenzie started Pre-K on August 23rd!  She did soooo good on her first day and she is loving it so far! I can't wait to hear what she has to say every day when I pick her up from school!

As for me, I'm just working and doing Scentsy parties! I'm having a Pure ROmance party tonight for a little night in with the girls! It should be tons of fun and lots of laughs!

Well I'll try to post more often (I know I always say that) but really I do want to post more!

Down in the Dumps...But a positive end!

Well, since I lasted posted I got some discouraging news that I actually didn't ovulate at all.  I'm still trying to come ot terms with my body not quite being back to normal yet.  I know it will get there in due time, but until then it is sad, frustrating and depressing.  Poor Anthony thinks that something is wrong with him and I assure him everyday it's not him, it's me.  I am longing for the day when I see that my body is working the way it should, and i'm longing even more for the day when I get to look at two lines on a pregnancy test telling us that we are expecting!  I know this day will come, but I am very tired of hearing everyone tell me that we are "trying to hard", or "stop trying and it'll happen".  At least once a day at work I get asked if we're pregnant yet, and this hurts.  When everybody knows we're trying adn they know it's obviously not happening, QUIT ASKING!!! When it happens, believe me you'll know!

Sorry I had to vent there, but it just kind of sends me deeper into my depression about it not happening.

On a lighter note, My Smart Munchkin girl Makenzie Jo, passed all of her Pre-K tests today!!! I was so very proud of her when they told me that! There a couple things that need to be worked on, but we can do that here at home!  Now we just have to wait til this weekend to see if we get a phone call saying that they have room for her and that she will be starting school next Tuesday! So keep your fingers and toes and everywhere in between crossed that she gets in! She also starts her dance class on Wednesday the 31st, which she is very excited about!

Well that's it for today, I will try to be better about posting more often, I just get lazy and busy!
