Just call me Mrs. Debbie Downer

And guess what, I DON'T CARE!! Everything is getting under my skin lately! Perhaps it is from lack of sleep, having my parents here for a weekend and then back to reality, or just a lack of something that only David can give me (Yes, I did go there!!). Things are crazy busy right now and I am loving that. I am hoping it makes time speed up some. But the smallest things are driving me up a wall. So if I am rude to you, sorry! I don't mean it in a bad way, but I am tired and running on fumes! I am not throwing myself a pity party on this post, I am just telling it like it is! Any military spouse can relate. We have our ups and our downs. Guess it is just downs for me right now. This week has just been one of those crappy weeks where everything is going wrong! I am really thinking about going to the shoppette tonight and buying a bottle of wine! Who am I kidding, I won't! I am not one who is big on having a drink when I am the only adult in the house. I would give anything to have a group of girls here on base who are going through the same thing. They are the best support group! Instead I bitch to my mom and David. And David is the last person that I should be complaining too!

  1. It's ok to feel the way you do - I many times felt that way when Chuck was gone - I called it my pity party time. It's aggravating, you think why does this crap always happen when he's gone - it doesn't but it just feels that way. Why do I have to always deal with this or that. Your allowed to be irritable, I would envision sitting on the beach with a nice cool margarita cuz I couldn't drink either. Nice to dream. I really understood Calgon take me away moments.It has been terribly hot here I imagine there too, so that doesn't help. So don't you worry, people understand and if they don't oh well.. I wish we were closer.Hang in there and keep your chin up, tomorrow is a new day......Jo

  2. I'm sorry Ashley! I wish you were a bit closer and I'd just come babysit and let you get out for a bit!

    We all have our ups and downs. I get frustrated too with JM having to work all the time, but I don't know how you do it with him being gone for so long. I think you have probably earned yourself a right to bitch. You are almost to the end! Just hang on for a bit longer!

  3. I am so glad you found my blog and left a comment, and I found your blog. I am always looking for new military wife blogs. My husband is joining the military after law school and I know nothing about military life. But I am slowly learning from blogs like yours, casey's and others. I hope your day picks up. Hang in there.

  4. It's ok, I feel that way alot of the time. I feel like the walls are closing in sometimes!

  5. Girl, I am totally right there with you! I was fighting that "down" feeling all week last week. Just hang in there. Even if it's not til homecoming day, the good times will come.

  6. Last week was totally rotten for me. Rotten, rotten.

    Sometimes it's just really hard.

    Nobody should fault you for having a tough go of it. I'd give ya a hug if I could and hang out... help to pass the time!



Thanks for stopping by!!!
