Sick, sick, sick.
That is my life at the moment.
Why do we always get sick when we are the busiest?
Went to Urgent Care this morning.
Tested negative for strep, however, I am showing all the symptoms.
Plus a lovely ear infection.
I feel like poo. I have to say I do feel better than this morning though.

So puppy sitting is going fairly well.
Lots of craziness going on with 2 boxer puppies in the house though.
Much entertainment as well.

Hard to tell them apart huh? See if you can guess...
that is, if you know our dog.

So, more prayer is needed for Heath and I.
He is wanting to join the Army as active duty once he comes back
from being deployed.
I have mixed feelings about it.
There are definite pros and cons.
It's going to require a lot of prayer on both of our parts, and added
prayer from our family and friends wouldn't hurt either.

I am having a really hard time putting into words what all has been going on lately. So much to say, yet not a lot I can put on here for all the world to see. Decisions...Decisions!

Hubby is home for now. The impending deployment has sunk in, at least for me. I am realizing quickly that my time with him is very precious. I am also having a hard time "sharing". I am finding myself feeling very selfish with my time that is left with him. And clingy. I am sure he gets annoyed with that sometime. Ha ha!

Moving on.

Need prayer for my grandparents. My grandfather was diagnosed with prostate cancer last week. I wish I could go into more detail as far as what the doctors said and what the plan of care is, but I don't know how much he would want me to share. Just know that it is serious. Surgery is probably not an option.

Hubby and I are hosting the "sister dog" this week, starting today. We have a boxer puppy, and my parents got a boxer as well from the same litter. Well, my parents are going on vacation for a week, so we are puppy sitting while they are gone. It's going to be a zoo. These 2 dogs are wild, crazy, and spastic! They are almost 1 year old, so they aren't small. Should be very fun and entertaining!

I guess that's really it. I have so much more to say, but like I said, most does not need to be read by the world.

I just heard this song on the radio on my way home.
I have heard this song many times before,
but today it touched my heart for the first time.
It points directly at my life, how I have been feeling lately.
Thought I would share:

by Phil Wickham

Verse 1:
To the one who's dreams are falling all apart
And all you're left with is a tired and broken heart
I can tell by your eyes you think your on your own
but you're not all alone

Have you heard of the One who can calm the raging seas
Give sight to the blind, pull the lame up to their feet
With a love so strong He'll never let you go
oh you're not alone

You will be safe in His arms
You will be safe in His arms
'Cause the hands that hold the world are holding your heart
This is the promise He made
He will be with You always
When everything is falling apart
You will be safe in His arms

Verse 2:
Did you know that the voice that brings the dead to life
Is the very same voice that calls you to rise
So hear Him now He's calling you home
You will never be alone

These are the hands that built the mountains
the hands that calm the seas
These are the arms that hold the heavens
they are holding you and me

These are hands that healed the leper
Pulled the lame up to their feet
These are the arms that were nailed to a cross
to break our chains and set us free

It is so great to know that God is with me, protects me,
even during my darkest times.
He is holding me, I am safe, even when everything else
in my life is falling apart.

Never Home

Got some overtime at work this week, which was very surprising.
Going back to work tomorrow morning for a few hours.
Why, you ask?
To help my unit move to a different floor.
They are going to do construction on our floor.
I volunteered to come in extra to help with the move.
Crazy? Possibly.

I feel like I haven't been home at all in about 3 weeks.
Since before the hubby left for NJ.

He comes back next week *Happy Face*
Only for a little bit though.

I am planning a huge cookout at our house at the end of this month
for those of you who are interested in seeing Heath before he deploys.
If you are interested, let me know so I can give you the details!
Tentative Date is July 31.

I'm going to go to bed now. Work has worn me out!
But I love my job and all the wonderful people I work with,
plus my boss is AWESOME.
So I am thankful that I get to work as much as I do!

Skin Head

Whew! Got some overtime at work this week, it started out crazy earlier in the week, then has slowed down a lot. I'm guessing it's because of the 4th of July. I'm on call tomorrow night, and Heath isn't home, so I have no plans for the 4th except to sleep and either work or hang out at home.

Before Heath left for New Jersey, he shaved his head and mustache (with a razor and shaving cream). Of course, I took pictures of him becoming a "skin head". I don't like the look much, or the way his head feels when he razor shaves it, but oh well.

I probably should have taken pictures of the "finished project", but I didn't think about it at the time. Sorry!

So this week of Weight Watchers has been bad for me, I gained a couple of pounds. I blame it on stress and not having time to go grocery shopping. Hopefully next week will be better, I plan on it anyway!
