Thursday Confessions #2

Haven't done this in a while so... Here goes!

1. I have a major addiction to popsicles. I probably eat at least 4 every day. The Sour Patch Kids ones are my favorite.

2. I have a crazy fear of birds. All birds freak me out. Parrots, pidgeons, seagulls (ahhhhh!), all of them... Except humming birds, they're okay.

3. Since my hisbad deployed, I think I've only shaved my legs 4 times, maybe 5. Oops.

4. I can't go to sleep with my house quiet so I just run Netflix all night long. In fact, I run it all day too. I've watched so many full series: Army Wives, Desperate Housewives, 90210: Gray's Anatomy, Private Practice, Gossip Girl, Melissa and Joey, Drop Dead Diva, How I Met Your Mother, and a few more I'm sure. I'm currently in the middle of One Tree Hill.

5. I miss working out. I am determined to hit the gym regularly after Adalin's surgery when I feel more comfortable putting her in daycare for a few hours.

That's all for tonight!

Never Fails!

I always say that I'm going to get back on to blogging regularly, but something always comes up when I go to post. So, almost a month later, I'm back! So, here's a general update:

I've been handling this deployment pretty well for the past month. I had a bit of a rough time adjusting to life in Georgia again after visiting Michigan for three weeks. It was actually much harder than I expected, but I'm doing fine now. I think there was a small part of me that was almost expecting my husband to be at our house when I got back. I know that sounds completely stupid, but I think I sort of forgot that I was alone. I forgot how quiet our house is all the time. Solution? Netflix, all day long. Even if I'm not watching it, I have something on the TV. I hate the silence.

Adalin is doing well. We scheduled her surgery for January. I'm glad that we finally have a date, but now I am counting down the days until we go in. I'm terrified to let the doctors cut into my precious little baby. I can't believe she's already almost four months old! That's absolutely insane to me. She's over 16 pounds now and in 9 month clothing.

School is... oh goodness. It has been harder than I expected to keep up with classes while raising a child. I'm currently only taking 13 credits, but I'm falling behind. We only have a few weeks left in the semester (thank God!) so I'm trying to get everything in and done. Next semester I'm tackling one extra class so I'll be taking 16 credits. Pray for me!

Other than that, nothing is really going on. I'm doing well! I'm going back to Michigan for Christmas. Hopefully I'll stay on top of this blog again!

God Bless, ♥ Vi

Facebook and Relationships

Can I just say that I hate what Facebook has done to the sanctity of relationships? Seriously, I get so heated when I think about it. I don't even know where to begin with this issue.

I'm very passionate when it comes to the definition of a marriage, or even a relationship for that matter. When my husband and I first started dating, we were public about. We were "Facebook official" and everything! No big deal, right? That's what I thought too, but apparently it is. It absolutely amazes me how many people refuse to put their relationship on their profile. I simply do not understand this. If you aren't proud enough to say that you're in a relationship/married on your Facebook, why are you in the relationship!?!?!?

It is seriously one of my biggest pet peeves when people say that they're "in a relationship" with one of their friends, especially when they're actually in a relationship with someone else. I know that it's not my life, and not my relationship, so it really shouldn't bother me... It does though. I have actually deleted people because of this. It all comes back to this: If you're not proud enough of your relationship with your significant other, you shouldn't be in it.

I have friends who refer to their husband as their "baby daddy" or their "boo friend." No. He's your husband, your hubby, your "lover man" (I let that one go because I think it's a cute nick name lol). It just frustrates me to pieces when women degrade their husbands to something far less. If he's your husband, OWN IT! Yes, he is your best friend (I hope), he's your favorite person, he's your love. Those are all wonderful. If you've got a cute little nick name for him, go for it. Just don't call him your baby daddy or your man friend. He's more than that, and he deserves better.

Also, if you decide to change your Facebook status to "single" or "it's complicated" to punish your man, seriously... I feel like this doesn't need to be said. You should not be in a relationship. Holy crap. If you're that immature, you need to do some major self-improvement before you can try to be in a relationship with someone else.

All of this being said, I just ask that you appreciate the sanctity of your relationship. We need to get back to what relationships used to mean.
