Why Becca!

Now why did I have to go and do that...PMS is getting the better of me today and as if the feeling of wanting to bust out in tears isn't bad enough, I willing sit my rear in front of the t.v and proceed to watch the tear jerker Pearl Harbor...What can I say; I'm a glutton for punishment! I watched this movie way back and I swore then, that I'd never step within ten feet of that movie ever again...Well imagine the degree of emotion I faced watching it this time around, being married to a military man....ARGH! I swear I cried like five times today over it...Being married to Robert, this stuff hits a little too close to home now...NEVER AGAIN! Oh wait, there playing it back to back great... On a side note, I about crapped my pants when Robert told me he volunteered for grenade duty the other day, GASP! "Yeah yeah yeah!" He tells me. "I made things go boom!" The part that got me was that, not only did he carry one in each hand, but they also strapped him down with four more across his vest! What a ticking time bomb...I know their trained in that kind of stuff but I've always been scared of grenades and the thought of my hunny being strapped to FOUR just makes my heart stop. Yes I know, he's been to Iraq and he's been to Afghanistan and has faced more threatening objects, but come on, I'm his wife and I worry:p

Yesterday I went out to fix my power cord problem and in one way I failed, but in another I succeeded! I had sort of priced these things on the Internet two days ago and got a general idea of how much they cost. So I was greatly surprised when Wal-Mart was selling them for $40.00 more dollars then what I had seen...I then drove to Best Buy thinking that they might be cheaper due to their larger selection of all things PC, WRONG! Best Buy does not have the "best buys." A whooping $120.00 bucks! Frustrated, because I'm a cheapo, I head home and immediately begin to search the Internet, yet again, for a reasonable power cord and SCORED! I ordered it yesterday for $22.00 with shipping and handling included! I expect it to be here in the next three days...Don't you just love it when you feel like you've cheated retail:p So for another few days I'll have to put up with my Love's loud, awkward keyboard inside this cave:)

I promise to post about Bella soon! I have kinds of questions for you pet owners. I just don't want to make this post longer...Also, I PROMISE to post about my running trial here soon but I think I'll wait until I get my laptop up and running again:p Happy Friday everyone! I'm off give Bella another shot at watering the grass:p


  1. sometimes a filter would be nice for the things husbands tell you, eh? when my husband was gone over the winter, I watched Taking Chance - a great movie which I highly recommend to everybody - but probably not the best thing to watch by yourself when your (military) husband is gone. I bawled my eyes out for the last 45 minutes or so. Oh, and it's only 90 minutes long or something like that.

  2. Sometimes our boys need to learn what NOT to tell us (the whole grenade business)! Another movie you may want to stay away from is "We Were Soldiers"... this is one of the BEST 'war' movies i've ever watched. But it really hits home because it is one of the very few that actually portrays the families back home. I do recommend you watch but probably not when "Aunt Flo" is visiting! =) Can't wait to hear more about Miss Bella!

  3. Oh my... I wouldn't take grenades well myself, lol. Poor dear- I love that movie but it definitely is a tear-jerker!

  4. Oh Lord. Our husbands sure do keep us on our toes! Mine about gave me a heart attack with the stories i heard every night about Mortar leader's course. Crazy army men...

  5. I'm sorry that you're still hiding out in the cave to blog!!!! I wouldn't have paid that outrageous price either!!!!

  6. Oh my gosh, that is a little terrifying! I can't believe all of the things military boys have to do! My cousin is in Iraq at the moment and he tells me things sometimes that just freak me right out!!

    Hope you get your power chord soon! And stay away from those tear jerkers!!! ;) (But I totally am the same, I'm a glutton for punishment, every once in a while it's nice to have a good cry.)
