R and R

stands for REST and RELAXATION...

The time has already come and gone for Eric to spend his mid-tour leave here in California. I took him back to the airport this morning and the huge brick that left when he arrived has some how managed to come back to find me. Its a good thing there are still good people in this world, I was lucky enough to be able to walk him to the gate and stay with him until he boarded the plane, so that made the good bye a little easier. The past 15 days flew by faster than I ever could have imagined and I'm so sad he's gone again. We had the best 2 weeks together ever and I will post about everything we did soon. So until then, if you call or text and I don't answer, its not personal, I'm just taking a day or two for myself. And a big HUGE thanks to all of my friends and Family for their amazing support for both Eric and I during all of this. Please keep Eric and all of our troops in your thoughts and pray I can pull it together.

I am not dead...just kind of!

After the hassle by a few people, I have finally decided to update my blog! Ive missed witting and I do come on almost daily to read other's blogs, but I just don't seem to have much to write about! So here are the facts on whats been going on over the past 4 or so weeks!

1) Thanksgiving: I spent it in Orange County with Sherri and her family! I had a blast to say the least. Even colored my own place mat and had a nice spot at the kids table! BE JEALOUS!!

2) Weight Watchers: In the past 4 weeks, I have lost 4.2 pounds! Thats right people, I have in fact lost! Sure I could have lost more if I truly stuck to program and tracked like I should be doing, but I'm working on it!!

3) Christmas stuff: I got up super early on Black Friday and was in line for Kohl's at 3:45 with my Nana, Aunt Kim, Sherri and Sandy. Did I buy gifts? NO! I only bought a few things for myself but whatever! In other gifts, I am done shopping for everyone! And I mean it! I still have lots to do, like finish making things. I would tell you what Im making but everyone they are for reads this blog so mums the word!

4) Woke up at 7:30 today and got to the post office at 8:37, 7 minutes after they opened and I still had to wait in line for like 30 minutes! But I did get my one box sent off and 50 or so Christmas cards! Thank goodness I don't have to go back!

5) In the news of Eric, he will be on his way home for leave in 4 or so days!! Can you believe it?!? I sure cant! I'm not sure when he will officially get into town, but it doesn't matter, I am still so so so excited!!

So there you have it! Thats pretty much what I have been up to over the past 4 weeks! A big HI to my dad since he will read this! I have a million things to do before Eric gets here so I have to get my booty moving! Ill try to post before he gets in, but if not, Ill see you in January!
