Another update...

As you may or may not have notice I have been MIA for a while. Why you ask? To be honest I have no idea!! Life has just been a little crazy and a little busy. I took a road trip to Washington a few weeks ago. I had a lot of fun visiting my cousin. I remember why I love Washington so much and Im beyond ready to go back.

While I was there I attended the memorial for 3 fallen soldiers from Eric's unit. It was probably the hardest thing I have ever done and I honestly hope I never have to go to another one alone without my boy again. Going on base was a weird experience for sure. Fort Lewis is really big and holds a ton of soldiers. Before the boys left, it was like a mad house any time I had to go there. This time, not so much. It was a ghost town to say the least. Very very depressing if I do say so myself. It made me miss my friends, all the memories and of course my husband. I long for the day when we can all be together again.

After Washington I came over to Idaho! Its a great place but sucks when you have no car to get anywhere. Long story as to why I don't have a car but I really don't want to get into that. I must have good karma and I dont like talking about people. Im still in Idaho waiting for my parents to drive up so we can go back to California on Sunday. I've been spending a lot of time at my aunts house and with Sabrina. I found these super cute cow boy boots yesterday and I really want them but who knows if I will get them.

In other news, I turn 21 on Monday and I'm not sure how I really feel about this. Sure I am very excited that I can finally buy beer, wine or a drink when I go out to dinner. But at the same time, what birthdays after this do I have to look forward to?! 25 when my car insurance goes down lol! I'm also a little bummed that Eric wont be here with me. Oh well, Ill get over it!

On the Eric front, Afghanistan seems to be doing ok. I get really annoyed by the fact that some of the boys there find it alright to eat other peoples food and snacks. I like sending Eric enough so he can share but I don't like it when they take without asking. He is supposed to get r&r in December and I am really looking forward to it. I miss him like crazy of course but I am more proud of him every day he completes his missions and gets his job done!

Thats all thats been going on here and I haven't had anything happen that really needs to be blogged about. Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading!!!!

This is an old pic of Eric and I that I had to share :)
