And He's gone

Today was our official first day of deployment and he is very missed by all. Sage looks around but I don't think it fully hit her yet.....but OMG is she being a BRAT. Some of today's highlights were her whipping the other 2 with a glow necklace and refusing to eat her dinner....that one was fun she took her Handy Mandy cup threw it at the wall where it broke....nice huh? Now this can be due to deployment, terrible 2's or just Sage???
Today I got the Mortgage finally on automatic draft, why it had to be so difficult I will never understand??? Got all Kids their Dr's appt's and get this I have to get 6 different appt's .....One day for only School Physical's ....back to back and for CYS ( Army YMCA or Rec department ) I have to go 3 different days. But at least the School Physicals will be done before school and hopefully I can get the kids in some kind of Fall activity??
Maddie had to go to the dentist today for a cleaning and I don't think we will stick with them. 1) They only take kids 3 and older which means I would have to find Sage a different dentist( not a biggie ) 2) The place is not kid friendly....not one toys, no mags, no books, no TV, and no color......I honestly was so uncomfortable it was very cold feeling. Very Strange place. The Dr was nice but she does not know about GERD ( why Maddie has Caps on 8 teeth) and would have to refer us out to deal with crowding of the teeth. So I need to check with a wife who's hubby went with Brian because they all went to a different dentist Weds.
Speaking of teeth.....Kael lost another one tonight.....that's 2 this week ......pray for me, I hate being the tooth fairy. Well I am off to the kids will go to sleep so I can sneak in there. These are just 4 of the 12 I took trying to get a decent you see what I have to deal with??????? Night All

Today was spent trying to figure out how the medical is run here. The kids have to get school physicals done before school. Registration starts on the 19th so I need to get on the ball. I need to get all our medical records turned back in so I must locate that tomorrow. I need to figure out how to get the kids Prescriptions filled/changed over. It drives me bonkers trying to figure out each base's different system. So I have figured out what new vacuum I am gonna get. We went to Lowes tonight and got a rug for the family room floor, a Gardenia bush to hopefully conceal our A/C from the street in the future and a oven lock ( Sage can pull this one open, door is not heavy at all ). It is slowly starting to feel like a home : )
Hopefully I can get some "army" stuff handled tomorrow.....Lots more to come I'm Sure.

Happy 4th

We have been busy. Aunt Bambi arrived Thursday and we went to the Salute to the nations on post. Friday We grilled out and tried to catch the fire works but we were too late. Saturday Aunt Bambi kept the kids while Brian and I went to the melting pot in Savannah.....yum.
We are staying busy trying to get things out away, put up and Brian has to pack to be ready to deploy anytime after Tuesday. It seems we find something everyday that has to be fixed on this house....and while they are small it is still annoying since I have to call the builder, who has to call me back, who has to call the contractor, then call me back to set up time....ugh.
Hopefully everyone is having a wonderful 4th and I'm sure once this week is over we will be back to a somewhat normal schedule.
Or Maybe Not??? : {
