Monthly Archives: October 2008
I was “tagged” by the fabulous Angi. She is an awesome crafter, and will heading up my new little “monthly Stamp Club”. FUN TIMES AHEAD!
I have really never participated in these things, but I thought it would be fun this morning….so here goes.
1. Post the rules on your blog.
2.Write six random things about yourself.
3. Tag 6 people at the end of your post.
6 random things about me:
- My favorite television show is “The Amazing Race”. And I will be on that show someday! And when I cross the finish line for the cash, you can all say, “HEY! I know her!”
- I don’t like to wear shoes
- when I was younger I was a very “free spirit”. But after I had a conversation (more like discussion/debate) with a certain 15 year old, I realized that I have become a prude.
- I am addicted to sugar, and would really like a cupcake right now.
- when I think about “time” I get a little freaked out.
- sometimes I randomly sing in an opera voice (the C family can appreciate that one! HA!)
How’s that for random!
I am going to tag:
Annie (Hi Annie! With your cute little baby in the belly!)
Kori (post on your blog GIRL!)
And I just realized that I got a whole extra hour of sleep last night! ROCK ON!
So it stinks.
Really, really, stinks sometimes to be a military spouse. So many people coming and going, but mostly going.
Husband/wives here but only physically cause in their minds they are a million miles away, or worse at WORK! (on a holiday doing something stupid!)
And I complain as a spouse…but what about the kids. Can’t even imagine what it does to the little ones.
Yeah, yeah, yeah…we knew this when we “signed-up”. But did we really? I don’t think so.
I remember when my bestest friend in Okinawa left me. She was my sister…cause that what you do, you turn your friends into your family. She took her little baby and left me with my little baby and I thought “THIS IS IT! I’m not going to let myself get close to ANYONE because they are just going to move away! I will be the loner. Then I won’t be disappointed.”
Let me just say, as you may already know, I get too emotionally involved. I mean seriously I have cried like a baby while making a slideshow for a client!
And I’m getting older and more moody! (Scary thought…you should be my husband! LOL!)
So that lasted about a year. I meet a few people, and kept them at a distance. Then one of these people, asked me if she offended me, cause Geesh! She wanted to be my friend but could only do so much.
So if you are an overly emotional person, that has held on to things for a year, You break. BUST. EXPLODE! Can’t remember if I did this in front of her, or if I waited until I got home, but the dam, she did break.
And thank the Lord above that it did. Cause, there were some ROUGH years that followed. And some of the BEST years. But how sad would it have been to not have a Sister to share them with.
But this time, I was the one to leave. Yeah, sorry about that. And I learned that the leaving is so much easier than the being left behind!
Now, sometimes the military throws a little something good your way. And this past week, was my something. That Sister, and her sweet family, are now here. HERE as in PSCed here. As in LIVING here. As in a NOT LONG DISTANCE call way, HERE.
I’ll be honest. I was super nervous about it. We have all changed so much. WHAT would it really be like? How would we all adjust…I think I spent a couple of sleepless nights wondering if things would be Okay.
But, it was 10 minutes on the way back from the Air Port, and we all just fell back into our little comfy friendship.
Yeah, I grew up, but it seems that everyone else did too. So it was okay, for us all to just be ourselves again.
Now, I’m excited about all the cool little adventures to come.
But I’m still homesick for some good ol’ Texas heat!
Now back to regular blogging. Sorry, I took a break. Cuddles on the couch with one little man out weigh blogging any day! Smile.
