(doing my Happy Dance!!!)

OMG! Yay! It has been an absolutely fabulous afternoon and evening here in my house. When I overslept today it did not look like things would work out quite as well......

They moved the Hubby's flight up by 2 hours which he told me as I was napping. Big Mistake #1....set the alarm wrong and i overslept.  Then I had to get up rush around like mad to get pretty and make sure the kids were pretty too. Got outside with our signs and books for the car only to realise I locked the door with my soda and keys still sitting in the house (Big mistake #2 if your wondering) had to find the hide a key and get back in to retrieve necessary caffeine to wake me up and keys to drive. LOL. By this point we are only half an hour from plane touching down at the airport 45 min away and I have just realised we forgot the diaper bag for Kate (big mistake #3) and the camera (Big mistake #4). It is so amazing that we did not get a ticket or even pulled over as I drove like a mad woman, until we wit traffic and a median fire (not sure why the median was on fire, it was weird though)

Finally I make it to the airport having been praying for a delay in his landing as we were cutting it so close and I just could not stand the thought of being late to pick him up after he had been traveling for so long to get to me. We managed to park and got our signs and Kate in the stroller (as she has decided her feet were not made to walk on they are simply to look good) and take off for the terminal in  this ridiculous Phoebe esque run, managing to cut off 2 cars and run over Kate's sign with the stroller all in the middle of the road.

Get into the airport panting and probably not looking so pretty anymore. We start looking for baggage claim for the flight only to have Katy begin screaming for her Daddy (needless to say she had seen him coming down the escalator before we did), if not for her we would have walked right past him......

Poor Guy I jumped on him and did not want to let go. It was the most amazing hug and kiss you have ever seen, definitely romance movie worthy (oh my poor kids having to witness that). I had been nervous and worried for absolutely nothing, because it felt just like we had not been apart all these months and now the fights seem silly and we are happy.....

Although I will say it was really weird having a man in my bedroom again much less in my shower. LOL. I am really hoping he does not mind the girly things I did to our bedroom since he has been gone....

But anyways for right now I am blissfully happy, the kids are happy (no one was afraid of Daddy) and now as I right this I can hear the wonderful sweet sound of my Hubby snoring next to me. So maybe no cold feet tonight now that my foot warmer is home again.

Here is hoping the rest of this leave is as amazing as tonight has been (o:

Ok, I am a terrible Blogger. I am not very good at all with keeping up sometimes. But it has yet again been pretty eventful in my world.

2 weeks ago, I lost my Granny (my Mom's Mom) and had to head back to AL for the funeral. It was truly sad in so many ways. I just do not understand why God needed her now. Why couldn't she have one last Christmas with us considering we had missed out on the last 20 with her. My kids had barely even gotten to meet her. Plus it really was nice reconnecting with her after all of that time apart. But now she is gone.

I have also been busy finishing my very first ever knitted blanket! I am so proud of myself....and it turned out gorgeous if i do say so myself.  Not bad considering it took 3 attempts and like a zillion stitches....maybe I am a knitter after all.

I also had to come up with and teach a craft all by myself to my MOPs group this past Wednesday. And I had conferences at school, and I had to have my big toenail removed (which hurt like hell).

Plus it is FINALLY getting to be time for R&R which means a ton of house cleaning (which included scrubbing carpets on my hands and knees since I do not have a carpet cleaner anymore) and  getting pretty (I need a manicure so bad and probably should shave my stems)....but man oh man am I nervous. It has been a very long and stressful 7 months and 4 days since he left. I am worried I have changed too much and that he will not like me or, that things just will not be the same between us...or that it will kill me when he leaves to go back. (Please excuse my completely bipolar moment there...) Its just a very odd feeling, to be so excited and to dread all at the same time.

So anywho, that is what I have been up to. So wish me luck for a Good R&R , please. I really do need it.

Maybe I wil have many funny stories to tell after R&R....LOL
