Almost There

Almost there.

We are almost to Thanksgiving. This year the dinner is being picked up on a Wednesday from Alaska Dinner Factory so that I can just throw it in the oven on Thursday.  I wont’ have to stress. I already have enough so this is perfect. I won’t have to worry about throwing away leftovers that would live in my frig as Nick ate them for the next week.  I have to clean that thing out for a final inspection and hate the idea of putting more things in it right now.

Almost to the kids last week of school. They will get a packet of school work to do while they are in transit. I bet Abby will zoom through it within a week and Ryley will protest it the whole way.

Almost to my last day in the office. Kind of bittersweet. Mainly because it won’t really be my last day of work – just for now and until I get internet in Georgia. I won’t have my team with me, but they won’t be that far.

Almost to my 34th birthday.

Almost to my mother-in-law and brother-in-law flying in to fly out with my kids in tow.

Almost to a drive across the country to see family and friends.

Almost to our once home of 9 years.

Almost to our new home for next 3 years.

Almost there.

Reflect

As I sit here tonight, I can’t help be think about what my life has been like. I reflect upon things that make days like today so special for me. It is Veteran’s Day. My husband is one of these and then some. Many of our friends and basically family but friends are veterans.  I can get super emotional on days like today. It is so easy. I can feel the emotion in all the pictures of people kissing loved ones fresh home from deployment. Surprise homecomings. Sad pictures of grave stones. I can feel it. It sits in my throat. Only because every one of these situation shave occurred, or could occur in my lifetime to me personally.

Today is also pretty cool as I sat for Facebook updates of a friend who was waiting the arrival of her new baby.  Family by way of the military. She is born into a family of dual military. Not to mention the long line of military family beyond that. How cool is that?

I don’t have many words – as I wrote what was on my heart last night:

This means he’s home. They could be covered in dirt, stink, and grime – but it means he’s home. For the 4 deployments he has been away, these boots mean he’s home. These boots mean everything to me. These boots are worn for more than just me and my girls. They are for every American citizen who appreciates their freedom. Thanks boys – I love you all that have become a part of my heart one moment at a time. I will never be able to tag or thank you all for the blessings you have been to me. Your families are now part of mine. Lance, Arch, Ryan, Erik, Jesse Ray, Pat, Sean, Mario, Minnick, Kniskern, Angel, Tony, Greg, Tervis, Remy, Johnny, Forbes, and so many more. To each of you and your loving families I adore – thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Currently

Currently I have a child in my seat while I stand typing this. This should be interesting.

Today I felt like utter crap. I napped for like 4 hours.

I am loving to eat loaded potatoes. I am talking cheese, butter, sour cream, bacon, and butter. So not good for my arteries – but delicious none the less.

R1JoyISOWrapPWSI am having a hard time making my Scentsy order – I love this stuff, but will I even get to enjoy any this holiday season while packing upon us?

centre422x622I am diffusing Centre from Simply Aroma in my room while I type. I have never been one of “those people” but I am a believer with each new oil I try.

My Younique lashes were the best they have ever been today. I rock for sure.

Sweet Tea. I can’t wait to drink the real thing everywhere I turn in Georgia.

0679888500I have not been able to find a good adult book that holds my attention lately. I have resorted to children’s chapter books. Don’t judge. I am currently reading “Sammy Keyes and the Skeleton Man” by Wendelin Van Draanen.  I am digging it.

PumpkinWEBLemongrass Spa – pumpkin everything. So all natural it has an expiration date on it. Awesome.

I am now sitting down. Score!

I am making notes for a team call. My team is on fire and I am so proud of their success. I am glad they are taking to heart the name of my team – Dare To Succeed.

I have one little one who is fighting sleep – poor baby.

Time to get off of here and get some more work done.
