It is seriously like Christmas morning here today! Michelle Cuthrell, author of Behind the Blue Star Banner arrived last night and I had a fabulous time with her and my deployment husband, Kim. We laughed and laughed. I don't think I have had that good of a time in a long time. Michelle is also editor in chief of Good Book Publishing, and gave me lots of good tips and encouragement about writing my book. ( She also reads my blog!) I am determined to making this a reality after visiting with her!
It has been 2 days since I have had communication with AJ. I have to say, I am glad I am busy. I absolutely hate it. I found myself almost getting mad and not wanting to E-mail him. I guess I felt he wasn't going to read it for days anyway. I need to snap out of that. I know he will be waiting for those E-mails when he returns and would love an update of Mr. G and his walking. So.. goal for today is to snap out of it and write a few E-mails.
I have another dear Marine Wife staying with me today. I am super excited . I told her to please ignore my house. I did interview a cleaning lady last week. She gave me a good price for once a month, but had to "fit me" in if she could take me. Hmm... I know my house needs some cleaning... but I know it isn't that bad. * Sigh* So, I honestly anxiously wait. I had a friend refer me to a cleaning company that had offered to do some cleaning for free. I honestly think he was putting on a front. He couldnt' remember where my husband was, and always seemed so crazy busy when I called him. He never returned my last call. So... it is on to plan B. We will see.
Midterm week is this week. I can't believe it. I have a test this week, and my other class doesn't have a paper due for another few weeks. I can't believe the semester is half over! We finally got the post 9/11 Gi Bill transfer approved. They did say the would back date it. So, I should get to apply it to what I have already paid. It does pay to be persistent. $17,000 an academic year for 3 years, a housing allowance, and $1000 for books. Sold!
Well, it is time to get out of mommy clothes and get ready for my girls day. The boys are with my Mom tonight so I don't have to rush to get them. I can't wait to share about my day tomorrow!
heart is full of thanks
