Oh my word…

Oh my word….

press. Thank you for being here for me when I need to vent. As I type, it’s a little bit easier to deal with the terrible excuse for a band that is now sounding through my house. Yesterday, some kid came over and proclaimed that he had finished the skate park he was building in his yard and to celebrate, he was throwing a party…in the middle of the week. Am I old or is this just completely disrespectful? I don’t mind some loud partying every once in awhile and if a goal is accomplished, by all means, party your little heart out. But let’s be real…it could wait until the weekend. Jus’ sayin’!

I’ll try to venture away from the complaining now.

Anyway, would you like to hear some good news? I will say that I’m sort of lacking in that department right now, but I am pleased to report that my countdown to going home is now in the fifties (days). This is exciting because I cannot wait to visit with all my people, but it’s also looming for me because I know I won’t be able to see or hear from my husband for a whole month. I really hate that.

I would go into detail about how our date to leave Alaska has been denied or I could whine about the fact that Captain J will be training again soon and will be gone for a week or two…again, but I won’t.

I quit complaining, remember?

Instead I’ll tell you about some happies-

1. Nicole and I got to hang out a lot this week. I now have a workout buddy, a scrapbooking pal, and someone to drag to the dog park with me, kicking and screaming!

2. Today, Sarah and I met up for a visit at Barnes and Noble. I think I’ve told you before how that is totally my happy place. It was nice to chill with her by the fire there (F-banks was somewhat chilly today…it was a nice change) and talk about everything under the sun.

*It’s really great to have girlfriends here.

3. I enjoyed 2 Skype calls from back home this week which was wonderful, as always.

4. Captain J and I went to see Knight and Day for our date night this week. (Can someone explain to me why people think date night is a bad thing? I keep seeing that on blogs and such.) The movie was pretty good- nothing spectacular, but I was glad we went to see it. We also made plans to go all out when Harry Potter comes out in November. I’m talkin’ ties, robes, wands, and the whole works. Don’t believe me? Stick around…there will be photos.

Alright folks, I’m going to attempt to sleep. I have an interview in the morning and a test of my vast knowledge of clerical duties at a temp place in town. I would say “Wish me luck” but honestly I’ll be fine with whatever outcome. I always hate interview questions anyway- I never know where I see myself in five years. Does that make me a bad potential employee? I think not.

    What do you mean you “leaving Alaska date” has been denied?

    Yes please elaborate on the comment “leave from Alaska denied” Now the Army is messing with my happiness and you don’t want to make Momma unhappy! Please tell Jordan to relay this to his commanding officer! Ha! Ha! Gosh I hope he doesn’t get stuck deploying with them again. Is that a possibility?

      I don’t think he’ll deploy with them again. If he passes through all the training in September then they’ll have to send us at the date we requested. Hopefully all will go as planned, but we’ll see.

    I don’t understand the date night thing either. I love the idea of date night, but C is opposed to actually calling it date night. I don’t get it.

    Can’t wait to see the Harry Potter pics! =)

      Perhaps it’s just a wording thing then? Hmm…

    lol we have a year and 1/2 left here so if we get Alaska looks like we are going to miss each other. Date night is great I don;t see why people have a problem with it. It’s a great way to not lose the romantic side of the relationship. In a sense keeping with beginning of the relationship. We try to do something once a week even if it is turning off the cell phone and computers, cooking dinner and watching a movie alone. Its sweet and I love it.
