On to air line anger. Last night we dropped Mr.'s friend off at the airport so he could go home to see his sister graduate. After leaving the airport, we had to turn around and pick him back up. The airline had over booked by THIRTY seats!! Seriously!?!? I think that is ridiculous, Mr. had to have him back at the airport at 530ish this AM. Boo. But we went back to bed when he got home :)
We made sausage balls together this morning and they were yummy! We were going to let little man help, but I think his paws are a little dirty and hairy for cooking :) LoL. The sausage balls turned out a whole lot better than my lemon cake. My cake stuck on the bottom even though I greased the pan :( I tore it into little pieces and melted lemon icing on top of it. It wasn't the cake I had in mind when Mr. said he wanted lemon on lemon, but it is edible!
That is all for this crazy random blog...

Mr. makes me smile more than any other person ever has or probably ever will. He brings out that fire and craziness in me that no one else ever has. We are so different yet the same; we bring out the best in each other and wow, I just love that man like crazy.
Yesterday was Military Spouse Appreciation Day, happy late MSAD to all the military spouses out there! It was Mr.'s last day off the the week, so we spent the day together. The swelling in my face wasn't as bad yesterday (it is gone today), so we went shopping! The BX and commissary are having a case lot sale, so I had to check it out. But wait, it was snowing and hailing! Yes, on May 7th, there was snow and hail coming down from the sky. We definitely are not in The South anymore.
Saying that I love when he goes shopping with me is an understatement. I don't know why I love shopping with him, but it is just so much fun to shop with him :) Yesterday he bought me Rock Band 2 (because I have wanted one for a LONG time) and a 500GB hard disk (because I need to clean off all of my camera memory cards). Then we went grocery shopping, yummy. I love how he spoils me! We are still using our budget, but sometimes we just have to splurge.
I hope you noticed my new cute layout around here. That is my wonderful Mr. also!! I downloaded some stuff from ShabbyBlogs and I was so excited about adding them here on my blog, but for some reason my computer screwed the colors up every time I tried to add it. I was so frustrated I was getting ready to throw the laptop, then he came to my rescue :) He took it to paint and fixed all the colors and lines for me! Yes, he is awesome like that and it makes me love him even more.
Now is time for me to be a good little house wife and clean up around the house.

I got Mr. to come home straight from his appointment. Now we had to call and get my first taste of military health care. By the way, I hate going to the doctor and if I hadn't been worried about my vision, I would have put up looking like Quasimodo for a while just to stay away from a doctor.
We called at 1200 for an appointment. After explaining what was going on, they told me to be there at 1300. Mr. wanted to make sure we got there earlier, so we got there at 1230 :) You gotta love him, he used to be late for everything, between me and the Air Force, we broke that. They called me back at 1300, I saw the doctor and had my prescription filled, and we were out of there by 1340! I have to admit I was very impressed by my first experience.
I love how Mr. babies me when I am sick! Now to rest and feel better.

We are finally rid of our dog house guest. Hallelujah! We have had a horrible time and we are done being used. We are both hoping that my stress level returns to normal now. Our taco salad plans got changed and we went to La Costa tonight with one of Mr.'s coworkers. It was pretty good and I ate WAY too much.
Afterwards, my mouth ulcer was killing me (thank you dog for giving me too much stress) We went to Wal-mart and stocked up on mouth medication and I hope it works soon. I think I may have over medicated, LoL: I rubbed alum on the ulcer, rinsed my mouth with peroxide, put orajel on the ulcer, and then put my bleach trays in to keep my teeth off the ulcer. I'm on full out war with this thing!
I am so tired; Mr. doesn't know it yet, but I think my night is done.

And that's the way our story has been going. We have a normal life, with me having meltdowns over extremely trivial things a couple times each week. Does this happen to any other people out there? It makes me feel a little bit crazy sometimes.
Little man is stretching it out and wanting some play time, so it is time for me to go.
Slice into bite size pieces and enjoy!

I don't like the word. I don't like the concept. I think it should be classified as a four letter word.
Why can't we just have infinite funds in our bank account? I love having money in the bank. I am the saver, and Kerry is the spender; at least we are opposites when it comes to that so we balance each other out. We are making small changes each month and we are really making progress on our budget. I would feel a whole lot better about everything though if I could just get a job here as a sonographer, I'm still optimistic : )
We have been eating out at a minimum and I have been doing good ole home cooking at a maximum. It feels good to cook. I am finally getting a passion for cooking. I have been cooking meals in bulk in order to freeze them to have healthy convenient options even when I don't feel like cooking. We are also trying to cook healthier with whole grains, vegetables, and fruits.
I have been searching recipes on-line and I have fallen in love with with the site http://www.allrecipes.com/; it is awesome. I have found so many good recipes I have tried and cannot wait to try. I am thinking about posting a page on my blog for recipes.
The one good thing that has come about from budgetting is: cooking at home. Not only is it a HUGE money saver, but I know we don't have all sorts of unhealthy things going into our bodies. Cooking at home makes me feel like a good house wife :)

Our first topic was aviation engines. Mr. was explaining things and trying to get me to ask questions, but I don't feel like I really know enough about engines and aviation crafts to be able to ask decent questions. He then went on to tell me about a kind of engine that doesn't have a starter or a stopper and has the potential to go infinitely fast, IF the wind was strong and fast enough. My thoughts are: What is the point if you cannot control it? You cannot control the wind and you have to glide it to begin with, it just seems a bit pointless to me. Just my thoughts, but maybe if I do a little research I will understand better.
Then we got onto the topic of diseases and viruses. I do not even know how we got there, but we couldn't agree with each other. We were trying to decided which is worse, a disease or a virus. Mr. argued a disease is worse: Parkinson's Disease. I argued a virus is worse: AIDS virus. I decided I was right, he decided he was right, so we went to sleep. This morning I looked it up on Merriam-Webster.com and here is what I found:
So I guess we were both wrong. If a virus causes a disease, how can one decide which is worse?
Main Entry: dis·ease
2 : a condition of the living animal or plant body or of one of its parts that impairs normal functioning and is typically manifested by distinguishing signs and symptoms
Main Entry: vi·rus
2 a : the causative agent of an infectious disease b : any of a large group of submicroscopic infective agents that are regarded either as extremely simple microorganisms or as extremely complex molecules, that typically contain a protein coat surrounding an RNA or DNA core of genetic material but no semipermeable membrane, that are capable of growth and multiplication only in living cells, and that cause various important diseases in humans, lower animals, or plan
I love the crazy conversations we have before bed :)

The other day, I was convinced I was going blind. I was getting ready to go out with Mr. so I put my contacts in and I couldn't see anything. I took them out and put them back in and still couldn't see. Mr. walked in and asked me while I had put his contacts in :( I felt kinda dumb.
We are on a Koo-Aid kick. I feel like a five year old! Kool-Aid is awesome, so far my favorites are lemonade and orange. Yummy, and when made with Splenda it is actually healthy.
Today I successfully made potato candy! I was so proud; I have attempted to make it since I was really young. I have been craving it and haven't been able to find it anywhere. Mr. thinks I should open a bakery! :) I love him so very much and he makes me feel so good about myself.

I still haven't found my camera charger, so no new pictures.

Last weekend we went to a cookout and had a great time. I met some wives on facebook and it was really nice to actually get to meet them and spend some time with women! I feel like I am always surrounded by men! They all had kids, which is cool, but sometimes I feel like we are the odd couple out. Pretty much all of our friends are single or have families. We are just not there yet; we have too many things we want to do and I don't want to drag a baby around to do them... but anyways...
Irie has decided that he likes pooping on the carpet of the downstairs hallway :( This does not make me happy. He has been rather crabby lately and we don't know how to get him to behave :( Last week after Mr. mowed, Irie had hulk hands and feet- He dug the grass clippings until he was partially green. Since I don't want to fight with him in baths as much, I decided to shave him :) He is now our naked little rat. Here he is with his little green paws next to his daddy's green shoes.
We have had some left over gift cards from our wedding, so we went shopping :) We got a really cute patio table with four chairs and a charcoal grill! We were very excited about the grill and wanted to cook out the night we bought it. We had our grill, the charcoal, lighter fluid, hot dogs, and hamburgers... then we realized that neither of us had ever had an active part at cooking on a grill, you gotta love us. I don't think we cooked them the right way, but they got cooked and were tasty. For desert, I grilled apples in cinnamon and brown sugar and we ate it on top of ice cream - YUMMY!
I have to talk about my awesome culinary skills, LoL. I wanted homemade chicken fingers, but I was out of Bisquick and bread crumbs. I was awesome and made my own bread crumbs! The turned out so much tastier than store bought and I was so proud of myself. Here is my homemade cooking: chicken fingers, Mexican cornbread, and greens :) A little bit of Southern cooking all the way up here
Here is part of our new patio table. I can't wait for it to quit raining so we can use it again :)

Today was really pretty, so I opened the windows to get some fresh air in. The "base voices" outside announced a thunderstorm and I was like whatever; so I went downstairs to change out the laundry. All of a sudden, I heard a weird noise and ran upstairs... IT WAS HAILING!!! It only lasted a few minutes, but it was crazy. Afterwards... it was humid! I was so excited for some humidity. I know that sounds crazy, but I'm a southern girl and it made me feel at home :)
After the weather calmed down, I went shopping at the commissary. I decided to start trying to only grocery shop every other week; so I had my list all made out and ready to go. Tomorrow I am having a cooking day and cooking some chili to freeze and maybe Mexican lasagna. As I was going through the aisles, I saw something that nearly made me do a happy dance in the middle of the store... CHEESE DIP!!! I guess the world is still a good place :)
