This summer vacation seems to be flying by. I guess I say that because we are now only about 2 weeks away from redeployment. I never knew a year could go by so quickly. Well, at least it did for those of us back here on safe land.
We haven't done anything special, but the kids are spending their second week in Vacation Bible School. Is that cheating? Are they only supposed to go 1 week a year? It's at a different church and they REALLY had a great time last week so I decided to put them in at a different location this week. You can't never have enough VBS, right? And you know what? VBS is nothing like it was when I was a kid. I remember it being pretty much like regular Sunday School. We sat in a classroom discussing the bible and doing a craft. They are outside, eating dinner, singing songs, doing cool crafts and having a good ole time.
So do I feel guilty about taking them twice? Eh maybe a tiny bit, but certainly not enough to not take them!
The time is winding down and I have done absolutely nothing this year to improve on the house or in preparation of Hub's return. I feel like a lazy bum because I had all intentions of painting a room, making some curtains, SOMETHING! But life seemed to have gotten in the way and nothing happened.
Oh well. I'm thinking that he will just be so glad to be out of the desert that he won't care if they house is a bit out of order! Ya think?
Okay, so I started my classes at Kaplan Online and I am loving it! I am really excited to be back in school and doing something to secure myself a brighter future.
Cam is my little academic coach. He is so funny because when I am on the computer, he will call from the other room and say, "Mom? Are you studying? Because it sounds like you're on Facebook because you're typing so much. Mom, get off Facebook and study, please!"
It's officially summer and boy do I wish I had a POOL! I want nothing more than to be able to go in my back yard and jump into some water right now. Anybody who knows me knows that I don't do heat. My neighbors say they never see me in the summer and the winter. They say I only come out it he spring and the fall.
I'm dreading having to move. I really don't want to go to Arizona. I like it here where I am now. I'm comfortable and the kids are happy. The military sure can throw a monkey wrench in your plans for your life. I hate the fact that we have 2 years left in the military before retirement and they decide that it's time for us to move. With 2 years left in the military, Hubs should be networking here where we have been for all of this time and looking for a job. It is crazy because we are moving to a place that is so new to us where no one knows him and he will then have to start looking for a job from there. He is already talking about having to stay in Arizona after retirement and trying to get a GS job in the system there before trying to transfer elsewhere.
ELSEWHERE? Where the heck is ELSEWHERE?
I love my county and had it all planned that this is where my kids should grow up. The Army doesn't seem to have much care for "your" plans, huh?
OKAY, enough complaining. I got things to do. My time is SHORT! I have to at least try to get this place clean. It's gotta go on the market real soon... yet another reason to not be happy.
