Yesterday I turned 25. I am now a 'real' adult, I can rent cars and my car insurance has decreased.
I am not where I imagined I would be at 25, married with children was never part of the plan. But I can honestly say there isn't much I would change. Overall I am very happy with my life, there are a few small roadbumps (that seem like mountains at times) that I need to overcome, but I am confident I will get there.

I am going to make this year the best year so far. I am very excited for all the things I have planned and want to attempt before I turn 26. I plan to come back next August and tell everyone what a wonderful year I have had. My birthday is now my 'New Year's'.

In an effort to make the best of the little time I have left here in TN (9 months) I have asked Jason to try and carpool at least 2 days a week. No more sitting around on the weekends. There is the library, the playground, the Farmer's Market and the museum is free on Sundays. Plus fall is coming, that means farms have activites! (I think there may even be a few 'Pick your Own' farms around here)
Most importantly is making the best of the time I have left with Jason before he deploys. I am going to miss him that is for sure.

Days like today make it hard not to want May to hurry up and get here.
I just had to sell some diapers in order to once again keep our account afloat. I only made $30 though, which is enough to give us $13.
Jack wants to play outside, we went out earlier, but there are always cars coming and going, it just makes me nervous. (Plus it is now 88degrees out!)

May will bring more money and a place outside for Jack to play, or at least a car for us to go places. But I hate that this only comes because my husband is being deployed.

Today is just a trying day.

I suppose I should start coming up with a plan b in the event the worst happens. The worst being that my parents either sell their house or lose their house. If one of those two happens Jack and I obviously wouldn't be moving in with them.

So a few ideas:
They lose the house and need somewhere to go. I find a real house to rent here in TN/KY and they come to live with us. Until they either get back on their feet, or ...

They sell the house and find somewhere cheaper to live. I suppose Jack and I could still come live with them. The whole point of me going back to MD is to be around family while Jason is gone.

Obviously if they are still in the house when May rolls around, that is where we will be heading. I also want to, more than ever now, help them fix up the house as much as possible. It is in the plans to sell the house in the future, and it needs a lot of work in order for that to happen.

Jason is going into the field until Thursday.

August 1st.
9 months until my life changes drastically. "/
My mom told me to stop dwelling on it, it is so hard though. There are no less than three people on my livejournal friends list who have husbands that are deployed. One of them just left yesterday. Reading about it makes it hard not to think about it.

The bank did in fact charge us an overdraft fee.
However, I did sell a diaper for $25 so I suppose we can pretend that it was only a $10 fee. I have two other diapers up for sale, but so far no takers. I have another mama who was/is buying two other ones. It has been over a month though and she keeps putting it off.

I was browsing dreamwidth last night again. [personal profile] allielujah posted about a site called Gives Me Hope/GMH amazing stuff I tell you. Brought tears to my eyes.
Operation Beautiful. Which I want to start doing, just reading about other people making others feel better about themselves makes me feel better about myself. So I am going to start today posting little notes whereever I go. (which isn't anywhere very often, but whatever works!)
