Blondie,

Yep, back on the road, starting our 2017 travels.

Not sure what you mean about the robot thing.  If you can give me more detail, I can check it out.

Comment by Blondie on February 11, 2017 at 11:19am

is everyone else getting this "i'm not a robot thing?  It sucks!  and the pictures are small and sometimes blurring for me to see!

Comment by Blondie on February 11, 2017 at 11:12am

thanks JayDee, I plan on taking 2 weeks off, I just don't know when? and how to schedule it!  It was one of the agreements when I agreed not to quit last December.  And also once every quarter I get time off to go visit them.  I just couldn't get Boss to agree to pay for my trips :( 

Yeah Anna and Spyder,  NavyMoms Unite!  lol  glad you had a good time, Anna does that mean you're back on the road again?

Comment by spyder013 on February 10, 2017 at 8:21am
Anna, it was terrific seeing you and your hubby once again and I look forward to seeing you guys after you do the east and head back this way! Safe travels!
Comment by Anna on February 10, 2017 at 1:02am

I had an absolutely WONDERFUL lunch today with my sister Navy Mom, Spyder013!!  Thank you Spyder for driving south to meet with hubby and I. Once again, it was so great to get to visit with you!!!

Comment by JayDee659 on February 9, 2017 at 2:31pm

Blondie - glad to hear that she's now gaining weight and things are going well!  I hope you can find a way to be there for the delivery.  Will your office let you take a leave of absence?  Maybe they'd appreciate you more if you went away for a little while! 

Comment by Blondie on February 9, 2017 at 12:27pm

bbcregular, sorry to hear she didn't pass, but what a great attitude!  I understand the "Mom thing" and glad your there for her.  I 2nd and 3rd....all the other comments here, what a GREAT group of support we have :)  Prayers going up.

CrazyMama & Navymamabear had to laugh at your names, we've all felt that way.  Take all the time you need to adjust and talk it through with your daughters, I bet they are having a lot of the same fears and  unknows.  Come here often to vent cry, scream, laugh and of course to BRAG!

My daughter is at 33 weeks now and has gained a total of 13 lbs.  but remember she lost @ 10 at the beginning....such a struggle for her.  makes me sad and I want to be there every day.  Wish we would have found a way to move....Tue. they had another birthing class, she called me on her way home, I had worked over and was still driving myself.  I picked up the call at 1:07 and was still talking to her at 5:37 when my husband walked in the door after work.  LOL  WE did have a 2 min. break, when I dropped the phone (while hanging up my laundry) and the back came off and the battery flew out!  I was franticly picking up parts and putting them back together, the phone was ringing and when I answered she said, "did you hang up on me?!"  "no I dropped the phone, "OH! and she kept right on talking.  :)  About 20 mins. after her Dad got home we hung up, it takes us that long to say good night, I love you and ALL the I forgot to tell yous.  While I was boiling my left-over chicken and broth for noodle soup she Texted me!  Then she sent me pictures of her "new stuff"  It was a GREAT day for me but not for my house and chores.  But children come first right?  Now sounds like she wants me there for the delivery which will be tricky considering we're 12 hours away!  She's been up and down and all over the place, come early, come later....all the pros and cons.....!  But I don't really mind :)

Navymamabear,

Congrats to your daughter!!  Check with her recruiter, depending on where she goes for her final MEPS and getting sent to bootcamp, you might be able to get a room and stay at the same hotel as her, have dinner with her, and go to her final swearing in the next day.  We drove into Cleveland, OH when our daughter was leaving and ended up going all the way to the airport and waiting at her gate with her.

CrazyMama,

Congrats to your girl also.  What rating is she going for?

Comment by Navymamabear on February 5, 2017 at 12:22pm
CrazyMama, I'm feeling the same way. My daughter met with a recruiter on December 22 and was sworn in on Jan 5. 2 weeks! It happened so fast and it's been a roller coaster of emotions for me and she hasn't even left. Her ship date is April 17, but turns out I have to take her the day before which is Easter. I'm so thankful to have this group and love reading what each of these wonderful, strong, moms write! I realize I'm not alone in my feelings.
Comment by CrazyMama on February 4, 2017 at 9:15am

She's sworn in now! Contract signed! Job chosen! Ship date 9/13 for boot camp! Had a huge meltdown for about two days...discovered that I needed that. Now that I've got my wits back (somewhat)....I am seeing life differently now. To take the "mom" out of the equation when talking about this, really made a difference and is let me enjoy this journey more....It's happening! This is a great outlet for me! Thank you now and in advance.....
