Less than  2 weeks and I get to see my husband graduate... :-). I have a dress for the graduation and I need to get more foundation bc I ran out and haven't been wearing. Stress has been making me break out.. For those of you who talked to me when we first found out a date and everything. Thank you for the advice. BOTH of my kids are being signed up for EFMP. We find out where we are stationed but that may change when the EFMP paperwork goes through. I just got my mil Id and to talk to the special needs coordinator on Wednesday. I have the paperwork together but I work in a different city and have to go in waaay late to drive 20 min on the other side of town to base then 40 min from base to my work. So that will happen on Wednesday. At some point this week I also have to get off a little early so I can enroll my big girl in Kindergarten and sign her up for lachkey( before and after school care) and speak to the school nurse. I am really hoping once we move that this Asthma stuff will not be the issue it is off and on now. I live in Wichita Kansas one of the worst places for Asthma and allergies

ON another note I feel so stupid last sunday when I talked to DH I had like a nervous breakdown. I stopped myself from crying to much. I was in AR driving back from MS from my DH's Grannys funeral. We all loved her very much and me and Granny were very very close. I hated that he couldn't be there. I miss him so much and I know it sounds stupid but I was okay until it seemed like everything hit the fan. The lack of communication I think is what is got to me. I keep focusing on only a little bit longer and we can talk again. I feel like it wouldn't be so bad if I could just speak with his consistantly. I write him letters almost everyday but I don't have a support system here and it sucks. My husband is my support system. 

Well rant over. sorry. :-)

I'm sorry. Sometimes when they're away shit really hits the fan and it feels like you're juggling chainsaws. It'll get better...2 weeks til he graduates. Can you take a couple hours sometime this week to decompress and relax?

I layed on the couch for a bit today and relaxed. During the week though NO. I go from about 6am to about 10pm. :-(. My IL's are probably coming this comingup weekend too. So I will have even more to do like mow my yard again before they come and get everything ready that I clean on the weekend done early considering I also leave the following Thursday for Chicago..... I love my IL's and they want to visit and think that it will be nice to visit and stuff but the truth is I don't really have time for a visit this close to going on a trip. I need to pack everything DH is going to want before we fully PCS. and pack everything to include inhalers and everything. Take care of   DD's school stuff to include latchkey and figure out this stupid MetLIfe Delta Dental paperwork.. I totally don't undertsand it. I can put the info for the automatic deductions... but DH sent me the paperwork anyway..wtf am I supposed to do with it put it in a picture frame...blah. And I can't even speak to him to ask.....

What is efmp?

I believe it is an exceptional family medical plan. Basically it sets us up with a doc and specialist when we move and dictates where we can PCS to. We can't go out of the counrty. We can't go anywhere where there is not a major hospital or a pediatric pulmonologist.

Ok.after my dh gets done with boot we will have one of those. But for autism. So hopefully it wont restrict us from getting an overseas post.

Sorry your little one has heart problems.

That may not necessarily be true. My daughter had to see a pediatric pulmonologist and we were still stationed at a remote base in Spain because we had access to one. Your last sentence is correct- you won't be stationed anywhere where the military thinks your/your child's medical needs won't be met.
