Well, here we go with the first posting of my new blog. This is going to be a new journey for me and hoping it is a good one....wish me luck!! lol
!!!! HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY TO HUSBAND JOHN !!!!
John has FINALLY caught up with me!!! He has now joined the fabulous 40 club that he has NEVER let me forget for past 11 mths that have been 40.......UGH! Its payback time today.....tee hee, its been a fun day!! :)
Today we are waiting to here the final word from Phillip's interview. We received a letter from People to People Ambassadors Program, stating that Phillip had been selected to represent the United States as a student ambassador to travel and study on a Celtic Culture tour to Europe. He will be traveling to England, Ireland, Wales & Scotland for 19 days WITHOUT ME!! lol I'm still trying to find a way to go with him, but its not looking very promising. We completed our second meeting last night, which consisted of an interview and turning in our paperwork and letters of recommendations. We are anxiously awaiting the final word on that hopefully today or tomorrow (so they say).
Another journey that is taking place in our family is the dreaded alert order for John's National Guard Unit......yep, its finally here :( Its a fear that all soldiers and their families live with on a daily basis during times of conflict, but its also just part of life that we live. If its time to go, then its just like being called into work and you go. Its times like this that you lay it at God's feet and trust in him and keep moving on. He is in control anyways and there is nothing you can do about it, but suck it up and deal with it. It doesn't mean it will be easy, but it doesn't mean it can't be done either. With God all things are possible!! We are looking at a possible deployment of August 2010, not long after Phillip will return from Europe. Then Phillip will also start his senior year at that time also......sheesh! Did I just say senior year?? Oh boy! I can't believe its here already *sigh* Anyway, I'm sure we will have numerous things to keep us busy during that time that John is gone and Phillip is preparing for college. Alex may be in a new school chasing his love of football and I will just be chasing Blake!! Yep, I'll be plenty busy!! lol
Well, that's it for today and its about time to crank up the ole taxi for my afternoon pickups and runs to practice.
