First, the DH left in april for his lovely tour in Iraq. He won't get back until Dec (knock on wood). Makes life very interesting...I'm a single parent again and it sucks. At least this time I'm at a base with other military families who understand.
Now, I'm loving England! Even with the horrible roundabouts (driving stuff) and it gets depressing here when it rains...unfortunately some of my friends here don't like it. They miss the states. Now don't get me wrong, I miss the states and what I wouldn't pay to have some Sonic right about now! But I like it here. We haven't done much traveling because DH has been gone and we want to do all that together as a family.
And then there is drama within our group. One couple has been arguing constantly and its getting bad. Unfortunately it's starting to effect others as well. I love these friends but when it effects my kids then sorry.
I'm going to be starting classes again. I need to get a degree that I might be able to use. I have a bachelors in Criminal Justice but I can't really use it overseas.
Oh well, I'll try to update more later but I need to take a nap...lack of sleep lately is making ladycolete very cranky.
