I’m not exactly sure what to write this morning. My head hurts and I have bags under my eyes the size of baseballs. My nerves are still recovering from the hellacious weekend I experienced. I haven’t really been able to keep a whole lot of food down. If I eat to much, I get queasy. Again, that goes back to my nerves. I feel like I could sleep for days. Literally. Days and days and days.
On a brighter note, the hubby seems to be doing well. I talked to him last night and he’s got a busy couple of weeks ahead of him. Well months really. But the first 3 weeks is all about his EMT Certification. He’s got a lot on his plate, and for that I’m glad. It keeps his mind occupied. And that’s what he needs. To stay focused on what he’s there for. Without having to worry about me and Little Man. As hard as it is on us, I have to be ok. So that he will be ok. He can’t do his best if he’s worried about us. And I we can’t have that.
The time seems to be going by pretty quick I guess. The days are no different than they were in Florida. I’m used to having all day to spend with Little Man, so we have our routines and whatnot. We’re used to hanging out all day. And I like it that way. With his Daddy not here, I feel like he needs some extra attention from mom. And I intend to to give it to him. He’s really enjoying the Web Cam. I think that’s making it easier for him to be away from Hubby. He can’t touch him or play with him, but he can see and hear him. It gets me a little misty eyed when they ‘talk’ to one another, especially toward the end when little man waves goodbye and tries to reach out and touch daddy’s hand. Talk about turning on the water works.
Bedtime is the hardest part of my day. It’s already getting easier, but it’s most certainly the most dreaded and anticipated part. Dreaded cause I have to crawl under the blankets and go to sleep by myself. Something I haven’t done but once or twice since Hubby got back from Pit Stop in 2008. Anticipated because that means that another day has gone by and we can check it off. We’re down 3 days already. And it’s already after lunch today. As long as things keep ticking by at this pace, I’ll be ok. It’s when and if they start to slow down that I’ll go nuts.
I did a photoshoot on Saturday and I’ve received several emails and inquiries about other possible shoots, just waiting to set some dates. I have two couples shoots and a sister’s shoot schedule for the second week in June. I’ve got a Maternity Shoot scheduled for July. I’ve got a definite interest, just waiting to set a date for a maternity shoot and then later the newborn shoot. Plus a few more in the wood work sprinkled here and there. With school still in right now, all of the dates are up in the air, but once summer actually hits I’m afraid I’m going to be busier than I can handle.
I’m going to try to get my website set up the first of May. I’ve got enough pictures of other people beside my own son to do a few different galleries. And I know I’ll be adding more soon. I’m really excited. Just trying to get everything adjusted and get used to being on a plan and a routine.
I’m going to try to get back to blogging a little more frequently. I got some great feedback from you guys on my guest blogs. I wanted to do a Question and Answer blog where you guys ask and I answer, but I’ve only gotten two questions so far. I was kind of hoping for a little bit more than that. So please email me some. 🙂 [firstname.lastname@example.org] Anything you want to ask. About me, my past, our marriage, our family, military life, photography…pretty much anything is up in the air. I’m going to give this another week for you guys to send your questions.
Hope everyone has a great day! I’m off to stand under a hot shower and hope to wake myself up. The late night calls with the husband have me dragging. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. And certainly couldn’t sleep until I talked to him. 🙂 The sacrifices we make for those we love. I know he’s making some too. <3 You Babe!
