Updates on Us!

Well, I had every intention of doing the 31 Day Challenge like Bek but I couldn't decide on ANYTHING! I also figured with being gone for two of the weeks at my parents it would prove VERY challenging indeed. AKA....I would write at all.

So, I decided to not do it right now. My goal is to write everyday as a type of journal on here. It write out what happened in our day and how we are coping without Daddy right now. It is all so new to us! As of today Phil and I have officially never been apart this long. It is weird. I thought it would get harder as time went by but it seems to be getting easier. I know it's only been two weeks but it HAS gotten quite a bit easier. We are settling into a routine and it is definitely helping.

I had thought of doing something like just posting a picture of what I was wearing each day to improve my appearance. That seemed kind of silly. I might do it anyways....just for Phil! I have been crafting and working on getting things packed so we will be totally ready when Phil gets home.

I am flying to South Carolina to be with Phil the last week of school. I will leave here on the 9th. of December and fly home with Phil. It will be the first time we have been somewhere alone together in quite awhile. We did go to Hawaii once by ourselves but stayed with friends so we aren't counting that. There are a bunch of Conferences and such for us wives to attend that week. It is spouses week. We will also be attending a banquet. I get to buy a new fancy dress and some heels. It should be fun! I also get to be there for Phil's graduation!

So, that was exciting news! I am going to pick Kluane up in a little while and she is going to watch the boys for me for awhile and then stay the night! It is pretty exciting for me. I am going to a girls game night with a friend whose husband is also away at Army training. Anyways, not much else going on around here lately. Just the usual!

Oh....I almost forgot. We found out this week that Phil is getting sent to Afghanistan next year for 9 months. It was a blessing to hear that it wasn't for a year. That was an answer to prayer. I will continue to keep everyone updated as soon as we know more. We don't know exactly where he will be over there yet!

I am so glad you are feeling more comfortable with your situation now. Kluane is a fun person to be with, and I love that she is being there with you as much as she is. Have fun looking for the fancy dress, and shoes. :) It is AWESOME that you get to go be with him. Sooo happy for you.
I know I haven't been much help, but be sure to tell me if I can help you in any way.

How exciting. I am so happy you are going to get to see him graduate. Let me know where in SC you are. Maybe we could drive over to meet you if it's not too far away. How cool would that be? The Clarks are coming to visit us next weekend. I am loving your posings. Keep'em coming.
