Sleep Deprived

Today is a day that I need to dedicate to cleaning. I have a many loads of laundry to wash and a many that need to be folded or ironed. Only, I was up until 3:30 this morning talking to Hubs on the phone.

See, he's working the night shift over there and he is up the same times of the day that I am, the problem is, when he gets off at 12-1 oclock in the morning, I'm sleeping and that's when he wants to call and have long (usually serious) conversations because "he can't talk at work because people are nosy."

Okay, I get that, but because I oblige to stay up on the phone, I'm finding myself twice as exhausted as I use to be. I already stay up late and often never get to bed before 12 anyway, so I really don't get enough sleep when I have to get up with the kids around 6:45am. Now, I've been throwing in the exercise routine everyday and the kids are now in their spring activities again. Cam in flag football and Miss Missy is doing cheer leading. CJ is taking some time off because he did winter basketball and wasn't keeping his grades up to par, which, by the way is way better after a teacher conference and new glasses!

Anyway, my schedule is full. I'm glad that the end of the year is coming because it will close the chapter of my PTO Vice President venture. Two years is my limit. Fun while it lasted, but I'mma let someone else have their fun. And since we're PCSing to Ft. Huachuca, AZ (not Germany now) I'm also going to be resigning form the FRG Leader position when August rolls around. Wow! Without any volunteer positions, I'm not going to know what to do with myself. I
m looking forward to catch up some rest then... Won't complain about the late nights now, because he seems to need me. He's missing home. Not liking being away from the kids so much... and by kids I mean Miss Missy! LOL! He feels out of the loop and disconnected and I have to admit that I haven't been doing the best of jobs at keeping him connected from there.

After all these years of complaining about his lack of communication, I guess I shouldn't complain that he actually WANTS to talk to me now, right? Who cares about a couple of hours of sleep? I can sleep when I get to Arizona... to the desert.... with the snakes... and the scorpions... and the cactus.... and the tumbleweeds....with nothing to do... Oh yeah!

That's sure to be an adventure!

Hey, you can come visit me! I'm about 3 1/2 hours or less to AZ.

I also live in the desert but the difference is, there are palm trees in my desert.

That's sweet that the hubs is wanting to talk, no matter how late it is at night or morning for you. He's definitely missing you all!

Hang in is almost over so you'll be able to get some much needed rest!
