Long Time, No Blog......

I know, I am the worst blogger ever....I never was much of a writer...I can think the thoughts, but putting them down in writing is tough for me. I struggle with my journaling also. Plus, I never feel interesting enough to post my thoughts... I'm kind of shy, unless I'm totally comfortable with someone. I'm a bit of a homebody, and really should get out more to work on my social skills !!
So the Holiday season is here and I'm trying to get in the mood. My husband is out to sea until the 21st and we didn't have time to get a tree before he left...and he wants me to wait until he gets home to get one....I guess we're getting the Charlie Brown Christmas tree this year..... That late in the season, I can't imagine there will be many good trees left...
I admit, I am struggling with the life of a Navy family. It's really hard...it seemed easier when I was younger, things were more exciting and I wasn't as worn out as I feel now. I made more of an effort to get involved in my city and environment..but 6 moves later...I'm tired. I'm tired of starting over and tired of missing my husband. We have about 5 more years left until he retires...and hopefully he gets a job that is totally "no stress".....work at the 7-11 for all I care...but no more intense jobs....
So, I'm alone with the kids...trying my best to be organized, which is NOT in my nature...I'm a creative brain and not much of a scheduled type person...which makes it hard when you're on your own. I am trying to figure out how to make things easier...homework with the kids, making dinner, doing dishes, errands and all the other things that consume my time and now working part-time. Balance is what I'm seeking..some kind of balance. While a creative person, I am definitely not a Martha Stewart.
So, off to switch laundry and unload the dishwasher...!!!
