Also, my dog stinks.

Totally Lost.My.Shit. on the phone with Lawyerguy yesterday.
It wasn't pretty.
For the first two months the deployment really wasn't bad at all. I had projects to do, visitors planned. Monkey and I went to Disneyworld. But it seems all my good ideas and projects took about two months to finish, and on a day where I had been sick for the last 6 weeks (not sleeping means you catch every single microbe to come along), it rained 4 inches preventing Monkey, the dog, or me from going outside, and a 15 time-zone move "somewhere within the next 10 months" looming heavily on my mind, Lawyerguy tactfully mentions "You sound a little stressed".

You think?

After much eye related leakage I was reminded that I need to get out of the house every single day (you forget this when you don't talk to grown-ups every day). So Monkey and I participated in a little retail therapy and came home with another Engine for his train set (Mavis-we needed a girl train) and flowers. Because a girl should remember to get herself flowers when she needs them.

I added Mavis to the DVs Thomas collection because I thought there needed to be a little estrogen in the Roundhouse!

I'm sorry you lost it on the phone, but I'm glad you got yourself flowers! ;)

We've got Emily and Lady, love the girl trains!

Good for you for buying yourself flowers, you deserve them.

My man doesn't travel very much any more, and when he did, the longest he ever went anywhere was a week and a half. You're awesome for keeping everything together for so long!

The rule about getting out of the house EVERY DAY is a good one for all of us on the Mommy Track.
