Not Your Kraft Mac n Cheese Blues

Today is one of those days. With my husband always working from before sun-up to after sun-down, leaving for the month of Nov. & then again in March for another whole year, I often feel sad, angry, and unappreciative.

I am sad he is leaving again to Afghanistan. I am angry he can't stay. And I have a hard time appreciating what he does because of my selfishness. At this point I see him 11 months out of 24, and have only had 1 week with him to myself in the last 3 years. So this song is fitting at the moment.

I love Alicia Keys music. And she is even better live, and way prettier too.

My friend's husband is on the same schedule (wonder if they work together)... It is hard!

At least you have a lot to keep you occupied. Keep up with the makeovers and the time will hopefully fly by for you all.

Thanks for the nice comments :) Love the buffet too- the paint looks awesome. Do you ever go to Thrifty Decor Chick? Looks a lot like what she has done too. Have a great day!

So sorry to hear about your husband--I can't imagine how difficult it must be with 2 kids and all that time apart. Hope you have a supportive network to help you through.

Oh sweetie, Military wife? Bless your heart, hang in there, and thank you to both of you. I will keep you in my prayers for sure.
