I'm still alive

Hey all. It's been a couple days but I haven't forgotten.

Baby girl and I are safe and sound back home in NY. I'm exhausted still from the trip home and all the unpacking and organizing I've been doing. Not to mention baby girl's long list of demands. She has been sleeping pretty good at night though. She eats every 3 hours but goes right back to sleep after so I'll take it. She really loves her crib.
I wouldn't be able to put her into her bassinet without her being completely zonked out but I can lay her in her crib wide awake and she will be passed out within minutes. It's like a miracle crib.

Will the hectic schedule I've been living the past week or so I have been pumping and using formula as well so that her feedings are quicker and other people can help out while I run around like a chicken with my head cut off. Unfortunately I think that may have back fired on me. My right boob has a couple really painful lumps in it and I think it's definitely because I haven't been pumping as much as I should. I usually do it once a day which I know is awful.

I'm going to make an appointment with a doctor soon because at this point I feel like just ripping my boob off. It's incredibly uncomfortable and really painful at times. Hopefully it isn't something really dangerous and can be easily fixed.

Tomorrow I have to go to Scotia to set up baby girl with deers and tricare. After that I should be able to make both of us doctors appointments.

Let's see, what else is there to catch you up on. Papa bear is doing good. I've heard from him almost every day which helps a lot. I'm really looking forward to our first skype date. Hopefully it will be soon.

Oh, I need some help with something. I am trying to figure out financial aid so I can start college again. I have looked into MyCAA but it looks as if they won't put money towards a bachelor's degree. Am I right? If not please help me figure it out.

And I would really appreciate any info on scholarships for spouses.

Here are some pics since I've left you in the dark for a while.
