To celebrate said fried brain, here are some thoughts. Hopefully they make some sort of sense.
-First and foremost.. if you are a blog reader of Kathryn's... formerly My Life as a Reserve Army Wife.. PLEASE update your readers. She got a total blog makeover and new URL and is now Kat's Korner at http://katbskorner.blogspot.com/. I'm in love with her new design.. and yes, I did design it.. so toot toot. There goes my horn. ;)
-Two weekends ago Rob kicked off his leave by getting super drunk. Like there were shots of tequila, beer and margaritas mixed for 4 plus hours. By the end of the night I felt like an old hag. When did I get so old?! Oh right - when I gave up my body to this wee person and I have to be responsible almost all the time.
-To make up for the crazy weekend we had two weeks ago (we also went to hibachi with friends, made a triumph return to church [more later] and dined out for almost every meal..) this last weekend was spent mostly at home. By the end of the weekend Rob was asking "when did I last leave the house?" It has been THAT kind of leave.
-I love Texas Roadhouse. 'Nuff said.
-My cousin just moved to South Carolina from Kansas. She's a little over 2 hours away from me now.. and last week she visited us for the first time! We spent the day showing her Augusta, eating some good food and making memories. I love having family so close. Grace and I are going to go see her after Rob departs, and I am very excited!
-This week is the slowest week in August for us. Rob leaves next week, we have guests for just shy of a week and then there are a billion and one spouse events going on the last two weeks of this month. I'm kind of tired thinking about it.
-We went to church. It was the first time since baptizing the babe. Which I am not proud of, of course. But it is kind of intimidating to say the least! We tried a new church, and we love it. There are tons of younger families there and I can see us really getting involved there (just what I need, right?! More commitments in the CSRA!).. this last weekend we didn't make it to church as Rob wasn't feeling good. But I am hoping we took a step in the right direction.
-Our grass is ridiculously, stupid high. I care, but then again, I don't. Our neighbor is rude.. and so it kind of feels spiteful to have a jungle next to her perfectly maintained yard. Is that totally wrong of me?! Tomorrow though.. tomorrow, we tackle the jungle. And by we, I mean Rob.
-Grace loves screaming at 6 months old. Loves so much she does it all the time. I have a serious love/hate relationship with this. It's cute for like five minutes, and then I am over it. Congrats to you baby girl on the new skill.. but save momma's ear drums?!
-As much as I dread Rob leaving, I've got a honey do list going... including - redoing the bedroom (or doing? It never really got done.), finally cleaning my car, and a few other things.. good luck to me.

Until we meet again lady... have fun in New York!
That's it. Congrats. You made it. I made it.
Until next time.
