A little more waiting....

I'm not sure how many of you are military wives.  It's one of the most unique lifestyles to live.  It's tough not knowing where you will move your life to. 

My hubby is up for orders and we have been in "limbo", but that's about to change.  He has been in the Navy for a little over 11 years.  We have been fortunate enough to have spent most of his Navy career in the same place.  He has been in his "open window" and looking for new orders for months now.  Nothing where we wanted to be, and nothing that sounded fantastic for our family.  Well, I'm happy to say that he finally just found 2 different orders to stay where we are.  He had to pick a first choice and second choice.  The first choice is to go back to his ship that he was previously on.  The second order is to a different carrier in the area.  I really hope we get his old ship!  We won't find out what he gets for sure till June 3!  So, we have just a little more waiting to do.   

I'm just so happy we don't have to pick up our little family and start over some place else while he'd be on deployment(s).

Battle Against Sippy Cups

Sippy Cup Mystery

Why is it after every weekend we are always missing sippy cups?  I feel like every time I go grocery shopping I am always tossing one in the basket.  This morning I went to do the dishes and I only have 1 sippy cup.  We went from 5/6 to 1 in just a weekend.  I know for a fact we didn't leave one behind anywhere.  I always make sure we have the sippy when we get back in the van.  I know what you are thinking, and I already went to look in my van and......nothing.  I am tired of buying these cups! 

Dear Sippy Fairy,

I have searched high and low for MCO's cups.  We had about 6 when we started the weekend and now are down to 1.  Please return all cups at once!  I'm tired of adding to our collection to only lose them.  It would be greatly appreciated if you'd leave our house and make another place your home.
