I'm trying to get back in the saddle on various things and blogging is one of them. I want to continue to blog here and to blog more at The Seemly Seamstress. Now, the key word is "try".
Ben comes home soon. I'll leave it at that.
It is not Nutcracker season. It seems odd to have Saturday afternoons off, but it's nice.
Parenting older kids is exhausting. It was so much easier to parent toddlers. They were physically exhausting, but older kids are more mentally taxing. And then, there's the constant worry that I'm ruining my children for the rest of their lives.
Can I say how thankful I am for my parents? They've been such a great help to me this deployment. It's still very hard because well, see number 4, but the house hasn't been this neat during a deployment. And, well, the house has never been that neat or clean during Nutcracker season. Well, it's never really neat, but neater than it would've been without my parents around.
The presidential election is coming up. I'm really worried.
