We've had our house up for sale since June with no luck. I know we're not in a hurry to sell our house, but I would really like to move before my husband deploys next year. I wouldn't choose apartment living as my first choice, but it's definitely my first choice right now. I don't want to be responsible for blowing the snow out of the driveway or mowing the lawn. I just don't have enough time for that with 2 little boys at home.
I keep hoping my husband will come home and say he's not getting deployed. I keep wishing we could just sell our house and build a new one next summer, but that is now on hold. He's been deployed in the past, but 1) we weren't married and 2) we didn't have any kids. The hardest thing for me to think about? My boys not having their father around! I can handle it, but it's going to be hard on them because they're too young to understand what's going on.
If anyone has any tips on making deployments a little easier on children I'm all ears. I'll take any advice I can get.

Blogging Virgin

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while, but never did. As I sit at work or drive down the road I think of things I'd like to write about, but never had a blog to post it on. So today was the day - I decided to go for it. What the heck, why not? What's the worst that could happen, no one reads it? Then what, I delete it? At least I can say I tried it.

Here's a little about me: I'm married to a wonderful guy who's a soldier in the National Guard. When he's at training I consider myself a single mom. It's one thing to watch two boys a few hours here and there or over night, but it's another when you do it for weeks or months at time. People say they know how I must feel, but you can't truly understand until you've done it yourself.

I'm new to the workforce once again. I was working for a company in the HR department until I was laid off the week before Christmas. It took me six months to find another job, but I'm back. It was hard to go back since I was able to be a temporary stay at home mom and spend time with my boys. At least I had 6 months with them - it's better than nothing.

Feel free to leave am I doing? what would you like to talk about? anything!
