New Bedroom furniture

So Brian and I got new Bedroom furniture last week. We were in desperate need of new furniture because ours was a hodgepodge of random. So I went to the furniture store on post and got this set. It was only $1400. We are so excited! It got delivered this afternoon and I spent all afternoon putting it together. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

If you're not in love with a Soldier

I got this from a friend's facebook notes.

If you're not in love with a soldier, you can't know adventure.
You don't know smelly gray PT uniforms that require a daily washing.
You can't understand green and brown camouflaged bags flooding your bedroom floor.

If you're not in love with a soldier, you can't understand the meaning of the phrase "Going to the Field" and the days you spend not hearing from or seeing each other.

If you're not in love with a soldier, you can never imagine the hole in your heart when that phone call comes."Honey, I am leaving tomorrow to go away for a bit. I don't know how long I will be gone or exactly where I am going, but I want you to know that I love you - always"

If you're not in love with a soldier, you don't know what it's like to say that final good-bye.
You don't know what it really means to be glued to the television.
You don't understand fear and you can't possibly understand the sleepless nights of endless crying wondering if you will ever see the love of your life alive again.

If you're not in love with a soldier, you can't know the immense joy, the uncontrollable smile, or the butterflies in your stomach when you see your soldier for the first time again.
You can't understand the self-control it takes to stand on the other side of the room as some higher-up gives a seemingly endless welcome home speech while all the soldiers stand in formation.
You don't know what it's like to have that second first kiss or what it's like to experience puppy love all over.

If you're not in love with a soldier, you can't truly understand how to make every moment count because you never know when that phone call may come in again.

If you're not in love with a soldier, you can never really understand how very delicate life is.

Thought on soul mates

I know that Brian and I are soul mates. I feel like I knew him from the moment we met. We both had a love at first sight moment. And the funny thing is Brian and I both didn't believe in that bullshit before we met.

And on that note I think I have figured out why it is so hard to be apart from the one you love for so long. Brian and I spent our whole lives trying to find each other. We completed each other like pieces of a puzzle. But then came the deployment. We were forced apart right after we found each other. I think it hurts so bad because each of us accidentally kept a part of the other soul when we were pulled apart, and we are trying constantly to make ourselves whole again.

That being said. I miss my hubby terribly.

A little over 2.5 months left.


I love you Honey B.

Aunt Flo

Sucks Assssssssssssss!

That is all. I hurt. I want her to go away now.

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Apparently I have no clue what it going on.

My Period Stopped.

And Started again

And Stopped again.

And thus far it is stopped. I do know some women bleed through their pregnancy. But I am still testing negative on the home pregnancy test. Maybe why I am bleeding is that I am not producing enough hormone to totally hold off my period and set off the test. I have no clue. All I do know for sure is that I have a Doctors appointment for EFMP on Tuesday and I am going to have them run the blood test while I am there. GAAAAH My body like fucking with me. It is not fun!

ETA: It has started again and is very bright red. I think it actually has really started now. NOT PREGNANT. :(

How have I not heard this before?

Oh wait I know because I don't listen to country. But man this one hits the nail on the head.

Another Update

I am 2 days passed my missed period. I am still testing negative on the pregnancy tests. Here is what the federal government has to say about the tests:

How soon after a missed period can I take a home pregnancy test and get an accurate result?
Many home pregnancy tests (HPTs) claim to be 99 percent accurate on the first day of your missed period. But research suggests that most HPTs do not always spot pregnancy that early. And when they do, the results are often so faint they are misunderstood. If you can wait one week after your missed period, most HPTs will give you an accurate answer. Ask your doctor for a more sensitive test if you need to know earlier.

So I think I am going to go stock up on dollar tree tests today and take one once a day until I either get a positive or my period.

I feel like I am playing bathroom roulette.

Well I am still testing negative. But the last test I took was yesterday. And, AF is not due for another 2 days. Here are all the symptoms I have experienced thus far.

1. Abdominal cramping off and on for the entire 2 weeks
2. My boobs HURT and they never ever hurt
3. Nausea when I wake up and after certain foods
4. Heartburn from hell
5. Diarrhea
6. So far none of my usual signs for my period, not even the usual acne
7. Mood Swings (Sorry about last night Brian)
8. Headaches
9. Food Cravings
10. I am super lazy and tired
11. I just don't feel like myself
12. Going to the bathroom a TON ( I used up 4 rolls of toilet paper last week alone)
13. One bout with dizziness
14. A couple of times where my tastebuds went on hyperdrive (Did you know there was oregano in pizza rolls and cinnamon in Diet Coke. Well my tastebuds told me so this week)
15. My Temp is up around 98 and usually it hangs between 96 and 97
16. Oh yeah and some really crazy ass vivid dreams ( last night I dreamed I married Justin Beiber just to corrupt him)
17. Gas

Signs I have not experienced
1. Actually throwing up ie. morning sickness
2. Implantation bleeding
3. Constipation

Now I know a lot of people don't test positive until after their period has been missed. My friend Dominique didn't test positive for 3 weeks after her missed period. Right now I am just hoping for a missed period on Tuesday. Wish me luck!

That is how I feel right now.

I've had heartburn for several days now. My abdomen hurts. My boobs hurt. My back hurts. I gagged several times yesterday. I had to work till 2am last night and could not fall asleep till 3am because of my heartburn. I had to be at work at 7:30am this morning. I still have indigestion. And there have been a few sad turns in my friend life recently as well. Thank goodness my hubby is so understanding. I just wish that I didn't take up all of his birthday morning with all my bitching and moaning. Speaking of

Happy 25th Birthday Honey B. I love you so much.

The History of Easter from a multi religious perspective.

Easter is celebrated the world over to mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ – the Son of God. The young and the old, the rich and the poor, man and woman and people of all races celebrate Easter. However, Easter has been commercialized to a large extent by companies manufacturing Easter related goods and items and the greeting card industry. It is important that in all the commercialization of this very important festival, one does not forget the history of Easter.

History Of Easter

Easter is one of the most celebrated festivals of the modern Christian church. According to St.Bede, an English historian of the eighteenth century, Easter owes its origin to the old Teutonic mythology. The name Easter was originally derived from the word Eostre. Eostre was the ancient Greek goddess of spring. It was believed that every year, Eostre returned to Earth after a long, cold winter and brought along with her the light and warmth of Spring. Thus, ancient Greeks held pagan festivals to welcome Eostre and herald the onset of spring.
The Pagan festivals always coincided with the vernal Equinox on the 21st of March every year. Though the Greek were not fully cognizant of why and when spring comes, they believed Eostre must be pleased to ensure that she returns year after year. The festivals were lavish feasts that celebrated the booming of new flowers, the chirping of birds, butterflies, and sunshine and in general the feeling of rejuvenation that is inherent of spring.
The Christian church however, changed the Pagan festival from a celebration of spring to a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. In 325 A.D. the church also changed the date of the festival. The festival was no longer held on the spring equinox. Instead, as per the Church Council of Nicaea henceforth it was to be held on the very first Sunday following the full moon on or after the vernal equinox. Thus, today Easter is celebrated on different dates every year and can occur as early as March 22nd or as late as April 25th.
Some people even believe that Easter is related to the Hebrew celebration, the Jewish Passover. Passover is celebrated to mark the freedom of the Israelis from bondage and slavery after 300 years. It was during Passover in 30 A.D. that Christ was crucified for being blasphemous. The resurrection happened three days later on what is today known as Easter Sunday. The early Christians, many of whom were raised as Jews considered the resurrection and Easter as a new part of pascha. Thus the early celebration of Passover came to be celebrated as Good Friday and Easter.
Today grand scale events mark the celebration of Easter in the United States and across the globe. Many traditional symbols of Easter continue to dominate the scene while new traditions are being part of the festival too. Thus, Easter is a festival that denotes life, rejuvenation, renewal, rebirth and restoration of all beings on Earth.

So Brian left Tuesday morning. I got to talk to him and he is securely back in Iraq. He goes back into work tomorrow. To keep my mind off things I have been pampering myself. I got a haircut, pedicure, and went shopping. I am doing so much better this time than the last 2 times he left.

On a separate note, I ovulated when he was home. I hate the 2 week wait. Also I have been having cramps like I am going to have my period, but it is way to early to be on my period. hmmmmmmmm, sign maybe?
