What you say, Willis?

This morning we did nothing, per usual lately. I sat here and wondered "why am I just sitting here doing nothing and letting my kids just do nothing?" Up we left the house *gasp* to drop some boxes off for a friend and then to the Aquarium. The children had loads of fun to just be OUT and doing something that stretched their minds a bit.
Oh to start school again so soon. Wow, did I just say that out loud? I'm not mentally prepared to start up our school routine again. Although we are ready with all our stuff, I'm just wanting to sit. I need to get some motivation in wanting to start back up.

Last Leg

We are at the last leg of the deployment. This one is really long and I really dislike it. Today I dropped him off at the airport and then I just cried. Last night Schuyler just held Moira for 30 min while she just cried and cried. Ugh, so depressing!!! I know I know, being married to a Navy guy, this is part of the job but still. Doesn't mean it's not hard! Have I told you this really stinks?

Okay so I'm off to take the pizza out of the oven and get ready to sleep in my big ol' bed all by myself!!!

Excitement is abound in my house. Why? Because the man is coming home. The breadwinner, the husband, the father, the best friend. He may only be home for a few short weeks, enough to get over the time change and back he goes half way across the world. BUT this trip means we are half way through our deployment. The stress will be gone for a little bit and we will only worry about spending time together. As a family and as a couple. Gosh I miss him. It's one thing when we didn't have children and our marriage was a bit wishy washy.

Now we have kids and we're more committed to each other as a married couple than ever. Our relationship is more centered on God than on how we FEEL. Does this make sense? And our kids see this, well, I hope they do and that I also hope it reflects in their life too. Anyways.

We are also moving soon and we're excited about where we are going. It will be a nice break from crazy traffic life and slow down. I love moving. Just not the transition. I have never done well with transition. But knowing where we are going helps a lot and we have plans of action if some things don't go as wanted helps a lot too. The Mister reminds me constantly that God knows and His timing is always perfect.
