My Stupid Husband!

Ok, So maybe I shouldn't call him stupid... But he is pissing me off. You'd think that all this time apart would make us want to be all lovey dovey every time we talk, but not so much.

It's the middle of a winter snow storm, and I am supposed to brave the pass to get to across the state at 10am tomorrow morning. That means I have to leave the house at like 6am to be there in time, assuming they don't close the pass. This is also rush hour traffic. So I have all these issues to face on my drive there and tonight I ask for the directions...

Well, that would be too easy. He actually told me to "follow I-90 to the exit and there are two lanes that go off to the side after the city center" I asked, what exit, he didn't know. I asked what highway I was transfering to, he didn't know. He wants me to make a dangerous drive in the snow and he can't even get me there.

I'm a bit pissed off. And he actually got mad at me for wanting actual directions.

It's bad enough I'm missing school. I have a test that I am missing, I am missing important lecture time. I hate to drive in the snow and I hate the city I have to drive to. But no, I'm doing all this to attend "Family Day" and he can't even get me there.

What a joke.

On the bright side, I do get to see him this weekend. I get to see a friend on mine too, she is married to another Marine. And I hope it will be worth it.

BUt I have a wicked cold and just don't need this crap right now. BAHHH.

I started school

I started school this week. It's going really well, except for the waking up part. I'm supposed to get up at 6am but I've been sleeping in until 6:30am. It's been really tough to get going in the morning. I've never had a job or anything that required me to wake up in the morning. I've always worked in the evenings or gone to school in the evening, or afternoon for that matter. My body has no idea what is going on now. I'm so used to sleeping in until I WANT to get up, but now I HAVE TO get up in the morning and it sucks. I wish I had taken evening classes. But at the time, I was planning on working and going to school and my job requires me to work in the evening. So I thought I would do mornings. I'm so glad I'm not working.

I'm currently out on disability, but will probably quit when it's time for me to go back. I'm out for bipolar again, but I just don't think I can work and go to school. I would be working until 10pm, getting home at 10:30pm and not going to bed until 11 or 12. right now, I crawl in bed around 8:30pm and watch tv before going to bed around 9pm. There is no way I could get up in the mornings at 6am if I worked. Who knows, maybe I will get a job that is in the afternoon, but I don't really want to. I'm so tired all the time. I have to force myself to not take naps in the afternoon. It's been a really tough transition for me. I know I will get used to it, but it really sucks right now. All I want to do is sleep, but instead I'm doing homework all afternoon.

The homework sucks. If you thought math and anatomy and physiology were tough and boring subjects, trying reading the text book. Literally, that is what I am having to do. It would be really interesting, but it's not. And the math... Oh my gosh. We are litterally doing basic math. Addition, subtraction, fractions, division. But the catch is we can't use calculators. Who has done any basic math without a calculator since elementary school? And we have to show our work. I couldn't even remember how to do long division. I had to read my math book to remember how. It is painfully dull.

I keep telling myself that it's just for 6 weeks. Then we will be onto the interesting stuff and I'll be doing clinic hours and surgeries and stuff. But for now, it is awful. I can only do homework for a few hours a day, since it's so boring I start to get really tired.

I get back to y'all next week to see if there is an improvement.

All by myself

Well, My husband left this morning. I'm pretty bummed.

I never realized how much I need him around. IT's the simple stuff... I actually had to look up handyman services today. I found a good company, but when I was looking at the list of things they do, I thought, "Oh my god, my husband does all of that for me!" I thought I was just looking for someone to finish my attic, but looking at their list of services made me think I'm going to be calling them alot. My husband does everything around here. I clean and cook. I do laundry, but he is really good with tools and stuff and has always just taken care of things for me. I can't do half of what he does around here.

I know the house will stay cleaner. I will do half the laundry and buy half the groceries, but it's not as great as it sounds. I will have to call someone every time I need something done around here.

One the bright side, one of the guys deploying with my husbnad has a wife that might move in here. She wants to go to school while he is gone. We get along really well, but never get to spend time together because they live in Idaho. It's right on the border of Washington, but actually Idaho. He told her she could live anywhere she wanted when he left. The school she wants to go to is here in Seattle, about 30 minutes from my house. So that will be kinda nice.

WE have a spare bedroom, but I'm not sure if it's big enough for her. She has a baby too, so I hope there is room for her here. I didn't really want to live by myself, but getting a roommate would be difficult. I mean, it's not for a very long period of time and I don't want to live with someone I don't know. So I was thinking I was stuck being alone, but this idea presented it's self at Ball and I think it would be perfect. Since the boys get home at the same time, there is no risk of over lap. Well, ,maybe a little after they all get home. I don't know when she would move out; before or after the deployment, but I don't mind either way.

It sucks that my husband is gone. I miss him. I know he has only been gone for one day, but I don't know if I'm ever going to see him again. He may take off tomorrow and then die. I don't know. It just sucks to know that he is gone and it's going to be a year before I see him again.
