How many more days until Troy gets home?

Hello...we have had an interesting weekend. My mom left early Friday morning...everything has gone downhill since then! My kids were probably the worst they've ever been in Sacrament on Sunday. So bad, that when a passer-by at church said, "Hi, how are you doing?" I burst into tears and had a breakdown. I don't even know her name. I was so embarrassed. What an idiot I am. I'm blaming it on being pregnant. She did invite me and the kids to her house for a playdate, so at least I got myself and the kids a "sympathy" friend. The real reason I took the kids to church, was because I knew it would be my only free 2 hours away from them until Troy gets home Friday night. Since I don't have friends, Visiting Teachers, Delilas is out of town, and the only babysitter I know moved back to Utah, I was desperate for alone time. I still don't know if it was worth the hour of utter torcher that Sacrament Meeting was. I honestly could not tell you what one of the three topics was about. So, that was Sunday. Today has been just as bad. I woke up at 5:45a.m. because the truck with our stuff was suppossed to be delivered at 6:00am. (The stuff I went to Utah to pack up.) Well, at 7:05 the driver called and said he was 1/2 hour away. I told him to come at 8:30 cause I had to go pick up our van in Manassas (where Troy works, 30 miles away). Well, he called at 10, and got stopped at a weigh station. Before they would let the truck leave the weigh station, he had to have repairs made on his truck. So, I've just been waiting for him to call all day. So, I have my van! WOO HOO! But, no storage stuff...:( So, I came home, got ready for the maid. I never know when they come, I just wash all the linens and have to pick up for them. Honestly, having a maid is not all it's cracked up to be. That is huge coming from my mouth, too! I have wanted a maid forever! Anyways, it's now 7:11pm. The maids haven't shown up today...yet...Oh, while I was typing this, the driver of our stuff called, it's on its way. So, I have a picked up, but messy sheets on the's almost bedtime...and being so short and pregnant...I HATE MAKING BEDS! It takes me forever! So, I'm grouchy! Nothing has gone right today. I also got into a fight with Kyle's school. They wanted a signed lease agreement proving we live at our address...I tried telling them we don't have one, and I gave them paperwork from Troy's work...but they were adamant. So, for those of you who know me well, know that I got pretty's probably a good thing we're only here until December... (I'm still irritated about the whole physical thing...quickly: the school requires a "special" form be filled out. Well, Dr's offices charge $10-$20 just to fill out the form, on top of's so dumb!) So, now that I've griped...I'll move on...except for the maids...they'll hear from me tomorrow! :)

Man, I'm sorry things have been yucky. My kids did the same after my mom visited too. I think they get used to having special attention or something and then run around crazy when it leaves. Sorry. I wish I was there to help. Intel keeps laying people off and I keep thinking if we do get fired--no big deal, we'll just move back to Utah so Aaron can go to school and then I can see you again. I must be crazy huh!!

I don't wish that for you, but that would be good for me! :) Just have him apply for IM Flash, they do tuition reimbursement...:)
