It seems to be that time has just flown by way too FAST. It felt like we just moved into our house and now we are packing and moving out. I have held down this fort for 7 going on 8 months by myself, with hardly any help. Two kids and Two pets and taking care of my new handicap self. It has made me 50 times stronger. I feel like I could handle anything and accomplish anything. After 8 months of being here and finding my way around the East Coast the old fashion way, by stopping and asking for directions or using up all of my printer ink and using mapquest...I have finally purchased THE GARMIN gps.
My kids have been in tow with me wherever I go and I wouldn't have it any other way. I am thankful for the handicap huge public restrooms, because of the fact that I have to two toddlers in a bathroom while I am occupying it. Yuck, I still can't stand public restrooms, but when duty calls, you must surrender.
Running around town, going to doctors appointments and me seeing the obgyn isn't the idea of fun for toddlers, but they really have no idea whats going on anyways. Now when they are 6 or 7 and asking the obgyn doctor..."Whats that", then a sitter will need to be called. Right now I have no choice, Hubby is gone and family is not near.
Hubby came home for a nice 7 day visit at the beginning of July. He was home for our 4 year wedding anniversary and the 4th of July. We drove up to Inidiana-near michigan to visit Andy's whole family. It was a nice mini-vacation. I was very emotional saying goodbye to my other half. But I have this whole 5 bedroom house to pack, and I have to have it done by the 30th of August. I have to pack, touch-up and paint. In the meantime I have a stream of doctor and dental appoinments for all of us.
We are excited to be spending our next 4 years in Norfolk,VA. Curious as to what Andy's new command is going to be like and what their deployment schedule is. Andy thinks he won't be home for Christmas, but we are praying he is.
Here are a few pictures as a little update!
Of course my eyes are shut in this first picture....one of two family picture we got while Andy was home.
