Highs, Lows, & Everything in Between

If I had to use one word to sum up the last week and a half... CRAZY would hit the nail on the head.

Highs.

-Grace hit the third month of life milestone (post to come SOON!)... and the cutest giggle this side of the Mississippi has come with it.  I look for ways to make her laugh because it will brighten even the darkest of days.

-Driving on to post and seeing an airborne unit doing jumps over the parade field.  Something I've never seen before in my 4 years of military wife life... definitely cool.

-Starting a book club with some local ladies.  Our first book is Heaven is for Real.. and I'm excited because we are going to go see the movie when we are done reading!

-Going to dinner at our favorite restaurant (Texas Roadhouse) with some great company.  We always have a great time when we go out with Eryn and Francis and Abby and Nick.  Always.

-Rob always has fun when we go out with said friends... maybe too much?  This last weekend resulted in this classic.. "Out of six billion women in the world, probably five billion want to be with me... but I choose to be with you."  That's why I keep him around.

-Planning out details and events for our trip home to Kansas in a little less than 3 weeks. I'm. So. Excited. It will be Grace's first trip home.  And the first time Rob will have gone back with me since we moved in the summer of 2012.

Lows.

-Turning the air conditioner on for the first time this season... house starts at 81. Warms to 83.  Obviously something is wrong, as the a/c is supposed to COOL, not warm.  Luckily they were able to get out and get it fixed before any rain rolls into town.

-Having my washing machine go out at the end of Easter weekend.  It will not fill up... Rob has taken it apart to fix it.  We planned to get it back up and running (hopefully) this last weekend, but the only store in town that sells washing machine parts is open Monday through Friday until 5:30. No weekends.. so um, yeah.  Hopefully by the end of this week it will be up and running, cause Momma is hurting without her washer!

-Getting the wrong appointment time for Rob's wisdom teeth removal that was supposed to be on Monday.  Unfortunately he had to reschedule to June..

-The neighbors cutting down the trees that lined our shared property line.  I do not know why this has me so irrationally mad.  But she hired some podunk company to come out and do it.  The first night they were out from like dinnertime to 9 pm chainsawing.  Then they left a half cut down tree for several days.  Before coming back a second day in the middle of the day to finishing removing two trees (except the stump... they just covered those with pine needles..).  Then this evening at 8:30 pm we hear the chainsaw AGAIN.  This time they were cutting branches down out of a third tree.  I'm so mad.

And that my friends is basically the last week and a half in a nutshell.  I'm very excited to usher in the month of May.  There are so many much anticipated things on the calendar...



always,

  4. I love book clubs. I'm in one and it's such a great excuse to read and also to hang out with some good friends I don't get to see very often. I love baby giggles! I love to hear my kids laugh, especially when they are playing together. Belly laughs are the best!
