Black Day

It is a Black, Black Day at the Military Wife's house. The Gators lost to Ole Miss! That's twice this week that an unranked team has beat a ranked team in the top 5! The said part is they lost by 1 point, that's just heartbreaking. So their is not much talking going on just a bunch of moping around. C doesn't even know if he can watch the Georgia game tonight he is so upset. Oh well it will all be better next Saturday.

eBay is so addictive! If I'm going to bid on an item I automatically know how high I'm going to go before I go into the auction. But that never works. I get so mad when someone bid's against me I bid higher. Its like a disease I do it everytime. I always say "I am NOT going higher than $15 on this item." By the time its all said and done with I have paid $30 for the item and another $10 on shipping. I think I am taking it personal, its almost as if I think they are doing it to make me mad. And then their are time I feel so bad for bidding higher I hope someone outbids me so I don't have to pay that much for the item. I guess I am just going to have to ban eBay from my computer so this problem is taken care of. Also so my husband stops looking at the checkbook and saying "What did you buy from eBay now that we couldn't live without?"

Fall Is Here

So it officially feels like fall outside. Today I had to go run some errands and I actually wore jeans and a sweater. Granted it is still 74 degrees here, but to me that feels chilly. Its normally in the upper 80s or lower 90s and extremely humid. I know a lot of people have it much cooler than I do and I should be grateful that I can actually go get the mail without breaking a sweat but I can't help thinking what comes after fall. The most dreaded season, Winter. Even though we don't get snow here it's cold and depressing. Don't get me wrong I love the holiday season, but it goes downhill after that. If I can make it through March I will be okay, it gets warm then. Okay sorry, rant for the day officially over.

As we all know their are many concerns over Bisphenol A or more commonly known as BPA. It is linked to heart disease, diabetes and there is some concern about it mimicking the hormone estrogen, which is linked to several other problems. It is found in many things we have around the house, including baby bottles. So I went to my cabinet and looked at all Princess P's bottles. We have several different kinds because she very rarely takes one. As I looked at all of the bottles I seen they had the number 7 stamped on them, which means it could contain BPA. One of the bottles we have is the Playtex Drop-Ins, while the bottle contains BPA the actual Drop-Ins themselves do not. So the milk does not come in contact with the BPA. And Playtex is offering a free Drop-In bottle per household if you want to try one. If you are curious to see which bottles and sippy cups are safe to use check out this really cool website I found Safe Mama it has lots of neat information.

Night, Night

When my daughter gets tired she fights sleep terrible. We have tried everything from bedtime routines to not letting her nap as much during the day. But sometimes she just doesn't want to give in and go to sleep. So tonight I was rocking her and talking to her trying to get her to calm down and that wasn't working, so I started to sing to her. Her deep cries turned into whimpers and I thought that I was doing some good, until I ran out of lullabies and sung the same song over and over. I was getting on my own nerves and Princess P was still whimpering so I started to sing Christmas Songs! I have to admit I'm very, very excited about Christmas this year. I'm sure it has something to do with Princess P's very first Christmas and it is our first Christmas in our new house. But anyway I don't know what this random post is really about, the fact that I know very little lullabies or how excited I am about Christmas! And the singing didn't work after all, she finally went to sleep on her own an hour later.

"We Will Never Forget"

Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

Psalm 23:4 (New International Version)

Christmas came early for Princess P this year. Her Papa and Uncle came down to see her this week and her Papa got her the Rainforest Jumperoo and a Baby Einstein DVD. So we put it together last night and she loves it! She can actually move some of the toys herself and she loves to watch the flashing lights. We were actually going to get this for her for Christmas but the weight limit on it is 25 pounds and at 3 months old she is pushing 15 pounds. This way she can get more use out of it. When we got up this morning we put her in the Jumperoo and put on the DVD and she got so excited, she didn't know what to look at first. So now we just have to figure out what to get her for Christmas.

Waiting On Hanna

As the night draws closer on our area so does Tropical Storm Hanna. We are sitting here waiting with anticipation on this unwelcome visitor. Although it is not suppose to be much, it's enough to worry you. We just watched the evening news and the surfers seem to be taking advantage of the situation though. Our area is likely to get some wind and rain, but the biggest concern is tornadoes. Our counties Emergency Management told us not to be on the roads after 8 o'clock, which was 30 minutes ago, because of the winds. The storm is hitting us at the worst time, it is suppose to make landfall around 3 am, which makes for a long night. So I'm off to do some dishes and give Princess P a bath and find the flashlight, then try to get some rest.

Here are 2 different live web cams so you can watch the storm roll in:

This one is located in Myrtle Beach, SC

This one is located in Kill Devil Hills, NC
