Currently...in 2013!


I'm linking up with Farley to bring you my first 'currently' of 2013......
 

 
I love listening to my kids play together---my 5 year old daughter is so into Barbie's and my 18 month old boy loves--- cars of any kind!
 
My husband is newly deployed--and it sucks!  Technology is making things a little easier though.  He does have wifi and we are able to instant message and face time with our apple products!  That sure does make things a little easier for me to be able to see him!!
 
I sure am ready to see all of my kindergarten kiddos again!!! I have missed them dearly and can't wait to hear all about their adventures over the break!
 
We got our first snow here yesterday (and more over night) and I can't wait to have a little snowball fight with my daughter!! :)
 
Speaking of missing people, I sure do miss my co-workers at school! I love the folks I work with and we are always giggling and having a good time!  I can't wait to see them all again soon!!
 
My one little word is perseverance!  Being a single mom to my 2 kids while my husband is deployed is tough!  With no family close by, I rely solely on friends!!! I have the best ones too!  I definitely rely on my perseverance to get me though these tough times!
 
If you haven't already,  go link up! I'd love to read your currently!!
 
And don't forget, I'm doing a quick giveaway too! Check out my post from yesterday (click here) to enter to win---it's quick and easy!!

  2. That must be so hard for you with your husband deployed! Prayers that he stays safe and many thanks for your family's service. Which branch of service is he in? My husband is in the air force.

    So glad I found your cute blog through the Currently!

  3. Love your little word! I can't imagine how tough that must be. But we teachers are amazing at standing up to a challenge!

  5. Hey...what a stinkin' CUTE blog. It made me smile as soon as it opened! Just found you over at Farley's. I have only boys so no Barbies here, but plenty of race cars. I was blog stalking with 2 remote control hummers racing all over the downstairs! My hubs was in the Marines (once a Marine, always a Marine!) when we were dating and he was on a 6 month float. It was tough then with NO kiddos! I'll say a quick prayers for you. I know that's got to be SO tough being a single mom while he's gone! We just became your newest follower and looking forward to more posts!

  6. Love the Currently post!! Hang in there with your husband being away. Enjoy your kids while they are young - they grow up soooo fast. My husband is retired air force and I used to live in Kansas, too!

    Would love for you to join my blog page, too! Krazy for Kindergarten at http://zcctraylor.blogspot.com
