Assorted Thoughts

I can't seem to find something specific to write about tonight, so randomness it is! Aren't you just thrilled?! Thought you would be. ;-)

❊ I can't seem to catch a break lately. I've felt like crap for about a week now. First it was my throat, then that quit hurting and my asthma started acting up. And as always, my shoulder is giving me fits. (I need to schedule a massage ASAP! Any island buddies have suggestions?) Today is the first day in about 5 days that my chest hasn't hurt and I can actually take a full, deep breath. But now my throat is hurting. Ugh! Before, it was just scratchy and mostly annoying. Now it just plain hurts and I don't want to eat, drink or breathe for fear it will hurt. =( Seriously, what the H is going on with me?!

❊ I've been on a sewing kick lately. It started with all these baby shower gifts... I got a little crazy today and made these for myself. Nope, not pregnant. Hubby's not home, so we're not "trying." And I made them anyway. Someone stop me!

They are cute though, right? =) And there will be a super cute blanket to match them at some point in the near future! Seriously, I think I need help.

❊ My hubby got a new roommate! =D This makes me exceedingly happy. Oh, and him too. =P His last roommate wasn't too keen on things like showering, getting up on time and being considerate of others. The last time they had a day off on the same day, he refused to turn down his TV/music, so Joe and I couldn't Skype. Jerk. Joe's been trying to get another guy to move in with him for a few weeks and he just moved in a couple days ago. My favorite part? This guy is married. And his wife is pretty nice. Praise the Lord! Oh, I didn't mention that Joe's former roommate was, ahem, with a female soldier several times? Should have mentioned that. *sigh*

❊ I've also been on a reading binge lately. =P Last week, I got a book in the mail from PaperBackSwap... Once I finished reading what I'd been reading, I picked up that book. I'm fairly certain that I read this one in about 3 days. Now, I have read a book in a day before but that was when I was a teenager with nothing better to do. Considering that I've also done a few things around the house and watched TV, I think 3 days is kind of a big deal. And, yes, I do read with and watch TV at the same time. It's honestly almost harder for me to read in silence. My family is, well, loud so I guess I learned to deal with it/block it out and now I need the noise. I find that a little sad, lol!

❊ My favorite quote from tonight's TV: "Viagra: It makes peaks where there once were valleys." (Mike & Molly) Hehehe. =)

❊ We are currently in double. digits!!!!!!!!! "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming..." I can't freakin' wait for this deployment to be over!!! One of my friends put this as her FB status today: "You know your husband's been deployed a long time when you forget his cell phone number but remember his SSN." Yup. That pretty much covers it. =P

❊ Oh! I met up with Miranda and Annie (for the first time!) yesterday for lunch. =) It was a great time, and a much-needed outing for me. Luckily, we all felt the same way. We're all stinkin' hermits. Seriously, I feel like I never leave my house. I know it's kinda my own fault, but I just really don't do going places alone well. Running errands, sure. Shopping, dinner and movies? Not so much. {Though, the shopping alone does happen. Retail is therapy.} Anyways, we had a great time and I'm hoping to hang out with them more! 

❊ I'm not ready for summer yet. I know y'all are just getting geared up for spring, but that means summer is going to arrive in Hawaii shortly. I can already feel the sun getting hotter. While there are days that I really do enjoy soaking up that sun, this little white girl has no desire to bake under the extreme summer sun. However, I do need a new bathing suit. =P

❊ I should probably start going to bed earlier, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I know I'm going to regret that when Joe comes home. He's always been the "early to bed, early to rise" type and I've always been exactly the opposite. I almost had him trained when he went to basic. *sigh* 

I miss his silly face. =)

❊ Keep an eye out for a giveaway in the next several days!! The big 4-0-0 will be here soon!! =)

Yay for double-digits!! It will be here before you know it! :)

Oh, Mike & Molly-- I watched a few episodes, but his mom really annoyed me. I haven't seen any in a while now. Maybe I should tune back in.

I've heard of DVD swaps before but not book ones. Do you like it? Are there really books that you want to read available?

YAYYYY! That's so exciting for double digits and that he got a new roommate. :D

I love all of your random posts! :D

JG said...

Oh no, our summer is starting very soon, too. Like, we're already consistently in the mid-upper 80s. I'm not really ready yet, either.

Those are super cute! I like the retro-y dots!

Congrats on being double digits!

I always get on an off sleep schedule with my husband's gone too! I'm normally to bed earlier than when he's home and I wake up earlier. It's always a strange adjustment when he gets back :)
