Random Ramblings

I wish I could say this deployment is going by fast, but its not. I don't know if its because I'm all alone, with no kids (and recently little to no friends), if it's because Alaska is dark most of the day except for about 2 hours, or if it's because the holiday's are days away and I know that it will be just me with my frozen turkey lean cuisine. Maybe its all of them combined.

Trying to find busy work is getting hard. I've pretty much ran out of things to clean, organize and rearrange and I've hit my 3rd trimester in pregnancy and feel like I did in the 1st trimester. I am beyond exhausted and sick to my stomach. The anti-nausea medication isn't really working, and neither is the acid reflux medication. But I'm hanging in there, still shoveling snow (and sliding all of the place) and cleaning (almost daily). 

After the new year things will begin to pick up. 
In January classes start again, I'm only taking 2 (It's a start). There is also a Bible Study starting up, I am signing up for "Tour of Duty" by Sarah Horn, its one of the Bible Studies offered for spouses of deployed service members. February Landon will hopefully make his appearance (if not then March). With classes (they are online), the baby and the animals to take care of things will hopefully go by fast.

Here's some good news!
Starting tomorrow Alaska will start gaining some sunlight again, granted its only about a few minutes extra but its still SUNLIGHT.. Oh have I missed the sunlight, it really does make a difference in your mood. (who would of thought!)

Back to cleaning, (well maybe just relaxing on the couch)




  1. I have gone through that study and it is awesome! I would love to do a Bible study with it.

  2. I am super excited for the sun also! They said our total time of sunlight today was 5 hours and 28 minutes. So it can only get better from here! It really doesn't seem like it's even Christmas time. Yes there's snow and Christmas lights.. But something or someone is missing. I feel the exact same way. Things will go by quicker than you expect.. You can always come over and do my busy work for me; I never have time with work. Lol. Totally kidding! You are so strong and amazing you will make it through all of this and it won't even have seemed that bad in the long run...


Leave some love, let me know there's people reading!
