Last day off

I am sitting here watching my kids playing outside. It has been so nice having this time to relax and enjoy being home. So that means back to school tomorrow. At least they only have 2 days this week. Report cards come home next week. So they needed this time. They seem to be OK thou.
Now I sure wish I knew why I was so hungry. Of course I do not want anything here. I think that seems to always be the case. I guess if I could get into the exercise mode that would probably help. OK so fill me in on what everyone else is up to.
Too many wants and wishes to list. Trying to decide about consignment sale and clear out some of the girls stuff. I think I have a lot of stuff. Have you ever had so many things running through your mind but you don't know where to start??? Oh well I am trying one day at a time. Loving today and looking forward to tomorrow.
Love to all

Five Days OFF

Friday is here and I am very happy. Two girls are home and ready to enjoy some much needed fun. The other will be home shortly.
School expects a lot from the kids right now. They are learning some great stuff but there is not much time to socialize and they need that too. I think the girls would have adjusted faster had they had sometime to visit other children. I guess I just need to check into some other activities for the girls. I just was hoping that we would not have to stay here. This is not the place for me. I am trying hard to make it work thou. Not sure I want to get into it today. It is FRIDAY and that is s good thing. My wish for today is:
My sister's family to get well
Enjoy and have a fun weekend
My friends to take extra time for themselves
Love to all

Busy Mom

Wow I have not had much time to do anything. The Army has Daddy at a school in Atlanta and the girls have so much school stuff it is just busy. It is the end of the grading period here and I thought great it will be an easy week and Dad is gone so perfect. NOT! They are trying get more grades I guess so the girls have had so many test to study for. Papers and books flying everywhere. But... tomorrow is Friday and then we get 5 days off!!! So we are going to just have fun. I am excited.
Catch ya up on my time in Charlotte. It was so nice to see the people that I did. I sure miss everyone. Anyway my girlfriend's (mom) funeral arrangements were very nice and sweet. I thought that her and her sisters did a great job and I think everyone knows she is in a better place. I think she is still dealing both parents gone but they are together and I think that is worth celebrating. She is great friend and I was glad I could be there.
I am looking so forward to this weekend just wish my sister was coming. Her husband was going to surprise her and I think a few things came up so that is OK. Miss them thou. Well my wishes for today:
Jonathon to have a special touch of luck come his way.
Joan's family to begin to heal
Mike safe trip
I hope my children have a sweet day and that someone gives them something to smile about.
Well this busy mom is off and running.Love to all

Slowing Down

Well I am sitting here waiting to here from a close friend about funeral arrangements. I have been so busy trying to clean up from Christmas make a plan on how to get organized and try to get healthy(lose weight). I am sure this sounds familiar. So I get a call telling me my girlfriend's mom is dieing. Well everything comes to a halt.
Everything has changed. I need to not be so hard on myself. If I have a bad day and I don't get to the laundry or I run through the drive-thur I am not going to have a fit. I am going to go with the flow. I think we all need to take a little more time enjoying the small things.
I wish for my girlfriend to heal and feel peace. Say a little prayer for as she is now parent-less.
I wish for a beautiful day to all.

Opening My Heart:)

OK here I am. I bet you can not believe it. So today is the first day that my life as the spouse of a solider is going to be an open book. I am going to take this time to let my family and friends in on the life of "The Army Brats and Me". Wow this is going to weird at first. As I am learning be patient with me because you know how computer savvy I am. So for today I am just going to get my feet wet.
I want to thank my friend for pushing me to do this. I think it is going to be good for my soul. Here is what I would like to do everyday:

So here we go and cheers to life, love and happiness!
Love My Army Brats and Me
