Oh my Gosh, in two days I will see my love! I can't wait. I am so excited, feel like a love sick puppy.


My day started out fantastic! A morning phone call from my special man, letting me know he did AMAZING on his PFT. Amazing is an understatement. A score of 270 gets you a special patch (to put on your uniform), he got a 277. Yep, that's my man! I woke up with a bounce to my step. A morning phone call from hubby and the kids FINALLY go back to school today! WoooHooo!!!They've been off for almost three weeks because of the weather. I had my entire day planned out: breakfast, do some cleaning, go to the gym, and do some shopping. Well, I come downstairs this morning, turn on the news, only to discover that our two hour delay turned into another day off! This is ridiculous!!! At this point, we are going to have the dumbest children in the nation. I love my children and love quality family time, but this is a bit over the top. Had I known they were going to miss this much school, I would have planned a curriculum and had my days completely planned out and productive. It's the unstabitlity and the lack of normalcy that's driving me insane! So make lemonade out of lemons, right? Okay, I was going to make the best of it. I decided to bake some homemade blueberry muffins and brew some coffee. After breakfast still do some cleaning, play a game of Uno, and then maybe hit the gym with the kids. Well, I go to brew coffee and there is none! ZIP, ZERO, NADA!!!! A freaking empty can! I can't function without it. I did great for two weeks and then fell off the wagon and coffee has resumed it's complete control over my mornings. Now I am GRUMPY! Ugh. Trying my best to, how does that song go, oh yeah, "put on a happy face." I am feeling so crabby and then I remembered, "I forgot to bring my flowers downstairs." So, I go to my bedroom to retrive my flowers and there they are, so lovely. They have completely bloomed, looking so beautiful, so hopeful, and my day is better already. I am blessed.


When I got home from the gym yesterday, I got on the PC and started to IM with my hubby who has been gone now for over a month :( Military duty called and he answered. During our IM he told me to go look on the porch. Not suspecting anything unusual, except massive amounts of snow, ugh, I was surprised by a long box. My curiosity was so peaked! I felt like a little girl on Christmas morning. I ran inside and riped it open to find a beautiful vase, filled with red roses! I got so emotional... My kids thought there was a bomb in the box by my reaction. My little boy came over and said "Are you okay mom? Why are you crying?" I had to explain that they were happy tears. My emotion even took me by surprise. The flowers are lovely, but I guess because they came from my special man, who has been away for so long was what made me cry. My roses have become my crutch - something concrete to hold on to, until my husband returns. I took them with me to my room when I turned in last night, and brought them downstairs this morning. They are still blooming which is so symbolic to me b/c despite almost fourteen years of marriage, we are still blooming too. However, unlike my roses, our love will never die...
