A Couple Highlights (DAY 96!)

Well, it's been a while since I've actually written a real post. I have been on the go, go, go since arriving in NC last Tuesday.

In the order of time I'm not going to give a play-by-play of the entire week, just a few highlights.
  • Wednesday: Doc appt (gyn), everything is looking good and normal. Walked from the hospital to my friend's house, a much longer walk than it seems. Made some brownies in Jars for Mr. P.
  • Thursday: WIC annoyed me as usual but I did get some formula for Ari. I'm still breastfeeding, I'm just using some help. Anyone who wants to give me crap about it, frankly, can suck it, because it is my body not yours (sorry to be vulgar but that's the way it is). Had my cervical biopsy. Wasn't comfortable but I'm glad it's over with. The fun people there didn't want to let me get it done because I had baby girl with me but a few tears and a mini-breakdown later and it was all done (and she was a good girl, just hung out in her seat!). Went to the battalion family readiness meeting and got to hear first hand what's up and what we have planned for the coming months. Realized how dumb some people are for not listening to me that they are not shortening the deployment (I'm not getting into it but I just don't know why people keep spreading rumors!)
  • Friday: Enjoyed dinner at a friend's house. She had a bunch of people over and it was great to just hang out and catch up and eat delicious food. Also did a bit of shopping earlier in the day to prepare Mr. P's care package - care packages are expensive, whew. But anything for my Marine ;o) Got home pretty late after the dinner and Ari was a bit overstimulated from all the noise so it was a patchy-sleep night.
  • Saturday: Went to the beach! One thing I loove love love about Eastern NC! Walked a bit with Cait, Andrea and Gigi. Then we went to get tattoos. They were too busy so we decided to go back later. Had Battalion Ladies Night at Shogun, the Hibachi place in JVegas. Yummmy. Went back and got our tattoos, definitely my new fave tattoo, it's on my hip/thigh area...
  • Sunday: Total veg-out day. Started packing Mr. P's packages. Tried several times to nap but every time I laid down Ari woke up. What a turd :-P Now she is napping, ok scratch that, was napping. Now she is ready for some attentions.


  1. Oooh...I would love to have the recipe for brownies in a jar...you should post about that (if you ever have time :) )
    P.S. I am going to send my socks out this week...sorry I have been such a slow poke!

  2. I love the tattoo! My sister and her best friend got matching pink ribbons in honor of a dear friend with breast cancer.
    About the breastfeeding...I understand completely! I was physically unable to breast feed my daughter. I got so so much crap for giving her formula. Seriously would they rather she starve?? It drives me nuts when people judge, especially when they don't know the reasons.

  3. Nice tattoo!

    Sounds like a busy week, hope you get some time to unwind!

  4. Aw I Love the tat...your socks should be getting thier sometime this week I mailing them today...

  5. Look at that tat!! wow.
    I wore fake ones this weekend! :) ha I am a baby.

  6. Omg. The socks are hanging in a bag by the door waiting to get mailed. This week. I hope!


  7. love the tatoo, praying for you, i can not imagine what you are going through right now. well i have imagined it with 6 deployments but well please just know i am praying. i am so sorry for your loss. praying, praying. by the way we just moved to bragg last month

  8. I'm so sorry for your loss. I have no idea how this feels but your family will be in my prayers. I wish the best for you and your child.
