    • Sea World.....hot as balls

      5 months ago

      nurse

      So, I learned that Sea World was giving up to 4 tickets to mil families. Mr Nurse and I decided we should take the girls....so I began planning our trip. We have a pop up so it was pretty obvious we'd bring it down to SA for our lodging. During my research, I learned the military has RV parks. Oh and they charge at least half of what other local parks do....say what?!?!!!! We stayed on Fort Sam.....I had never been there before and didn't realize what an absofreakinglutely massive place that is. Anyway, we roll in late, of course. It was nice out so we were sitting outside enjoying a beverage when a retiree named Jodie came by and was curious about our rope lights. She wound up hanging out talking with us til 2am! She was a very interesting lady. :) 

      Next day, we got to Sea World. It was super hot y'all.....not as humid as Dallas which made it easier I suppose. Anyway, the girls enjoyed seeing the animal shows. We enjoyed paying $60 for a shitty pizza buffet. 

      One of Mr Nurse's foster brothers is a former marine married to an airman stationed down there. He's using the GI Bill to go to school...we met up with them for breakfast on Saturday. I had never met her, or their 4 yr old daughter. She and Pigbaby had a great time playing together at the restaurant. ❤

      Super fun but super hot! The park was so clean and quiet. Lots of kids on the playground. The only scrappy thing about the park was the trains that ran at all hours. They didn't bother Mr Nurse or the girls but they woke me up several times. :( 


    • Three kids

      6 months ago

      nurse

      That's what I am left with. So, the lady who kept Boychild while we were in Mexico fell in Love with him and has applied to adopt him. Our agency moved him to her on Friday. The caseworker flew down yesterday and they signed the paperwork. Their adoption should finalize in December. I am happy for them and I hope it all works out. Newmom and I have become friends....they live about 45 minutes from us. When we brought him over on Friday, her daughter answered the door and her face just lit up when she saw him. His new grandparents came over too and Grandma was very complimentary to us. Said his manners were excellent and we've done a great job with him. I'm so glad he's getting better. He was straight up ferral when I got him.

      Its hard but we're so happy for them. 

    • The light at the end of the tunnel

      7 months ago

      nurse

      So....things in fostermama-land are kind of sucky. Boychild and La Diva are so much alike they hate each other. They are both super difficult kids and both have medical reasons why they are asshats....although I tend to take a harder stance with her. Mentally, he's 3, whereas she's closer to 12. Its miserable. I hate that there is so much conflict in my house. Of course, she's fine when Mr. Nurse is home. Unfortunately, that's rare due to his commitment with the reserves and general workaholickness with his civi job. 

      Prayers

      I needs them


      And wine. I like dry reds.

      :'(

      I will miss his abrasive, acidic humor. 


      In other news, I was asked to sing again. Someone from Hub's squadron asked if I would sing at a vigil to be held in honor of victims of violence. There were 3 speakers. One who works with a local women's shelter, one who is a victim's advocate with Ft Worth PD, and the mother of a trafficking survivor. :-O Her daughter's story terrified me.

      To God be the glory.

      I sang Amazing Grace during a part where people could light candles for people they wished to honor. After I finished, I lit a candle and said a prayer for a lady I took care of in the ER years ago. There have literally been dozens of women but she stands out because she had her 3 kids with her. They waited hours until the social worker could find a shelter that would take all of them. When the transport arrived, a few murses held sheets up in the ambulance bay to block the view, just in case someone followed them. (We didnt think it was possible but she was terrified so it was done to ease her mind.) Another nurse and I carried 2 of the kids to a waiting minivan. We stuffed them in and watched as they were driven off into the night. I wish I knew what became of them. (By the way, did you know....even the women in the shelters do not know where they are taken. They are driven to a parking lot, then picked up by another transporter and delivered to the shelter. 

       It's for their protection, and for the other families there). 

      Singing at this service was great. It was a sweet ceremony and I was honored to be a part of it. <3

      Hey y'all what's up?!!


      I'm still a stay at home mama. Still married to a workaholic. Still have 3 girls and a foster son. Still drink a lot of wine.

      I'm a little embarrassed that I have nothing more valuable to contribute to roosterteeth society.

    • I probably won't share this on fb so here ya go!

      One of my friends hubby got promoted. And she asked ME to sing the National Anthem at his ceremony!!! 

      So I did.

      And it went not horrible! (Well, I thought I could have done better on a couple notes but he said I knocked it out of the park).

      Yeah!!!!!!!

    • Catching my breath

      1 year ago

      nurse

      Hey y'all what's up? 

      Things have calmed down considerably for me. We had 2 fosters with us for a long while. In January, we were asked to provide respite care (temporary foster care) for an 8yo girl. The home she was in was being investigated. She wasn't in our "preferred" age range or whatever but we live 10 minutes from her school and have girls the same age. Made sense at the time. Well, that turned into 6 months. 

      O.o

      When cps started investigating the other home, she and her 2yo brother were separated. They had been in foster care almost a year and had always stayed together. We were her 6th foster home, and his 7th. So at the end of April, our agency started making roundabout threats to move her before the end of the school year if we didn't take him. Thinking it was best for her to finish out the year at her current school, we agreed to take him. Supposedly it was going to be temporary. Of course, it wasn't.

      Y'all I only lasted 2 months with 5 kids. It was exhausting. The boy was a hot mess. I don't know what was going on with him but it was out of my league. He was biting Junebug. He bit me a couple of times too. He was a perfect angel for Mr. Nurse though. As for the girl, she had her own problems, which were frustrating to deal with. And Lordy the grocery bill! He got WIC but it barely covered a week of meals for him. I couldn't walk out of Walmart without dropping at least $300. And laundry....ooh don't get me started. 

      Anyway, they were moved in July. I've been enjoying the break and welcoming the return of my sanity.

      Rehab is doing well. I still have a fair amount of swelling and soreness in the left leg. Right leg is muscle weak but doing better. I really did myself in the last two 70F days by being outside and overdoing things. PT tells me I am right on track and he is happy with my progress

      Saw the news about the weather down there. Hope all of you are OK and staying warm! We are having a heat wave right now with the temp at 23F up from 5F. Oh, and I should mention that we have around 18" of snow on the ground with 20-30mph wind gusts.Great time to stay home, sitting in the lazy boy with dogs in the lap, a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.

      I can totally understand the hesitation, HOWEVER, I do not understand that hesitation when you SIGNED UP to go. That is the reason I dont jump out of perfectly good aircraft. Have your fun, it aint my cup o tea. :)


      The very worst part is the wait between the last of the checks and the command, "Green light, GOOOO!" That wait is enough to unnerve anyone. It's terrifying. I get dry mouth and my heart races. That's the time where you start to dwell on the multitude of things that can go wrong in the next 5 minutes that will kill you deader than dead. Jumping out of a C-130 at night with a combat load while hundreds of other guys are doing the other thing? It's a giant middle finger, waved in Death's face. If you're not a bit nervous, you're either ignorant or dumb.

      That said, I've never, never hesitated to jump when the command came down.
