1 year...

and 3 days because I'm a slacker....

Actually, just been pretty busy with my husband and Hawaii.

So some things that happened through the course of the year, all for me of course....

  • Had a baby, gave said baby up for adoption

  • Went to the Psych Hospital

  • Quit job at After School Program

  • Started Receptionist job

  • Met Steven

  • Got laid off from Receptionist job

  • Moved to Oklahoma, unoffically

  • Got engaged to Steven

  • Married Steven

  • Moved to Georgia for a month or so

  • Sent my husband to Hawaii without me a week after we got married

  • Moved to Hawaii
So I thought Thursday (his 1st birthday) was going to be just this aweful day and that I'd not want to do anything but lay in bed and cry. However, my husband is amazing and I didn't stay home alone at all. As a matter of a fact, he stayed home alone that night while I went to a coffee for fellow wives of guys in his unit. He asked me to tag along to work with him and I met the FRG liason and she was so nice and told me about the coffee and then later called to offer me a ride! But anyways, Steven had to go around to some home improvement stores to price plywood and the such for work, so we did that most of the afternoon. Then we came home and he did a powerpoint of the price for a bulletin board and since he can't email from home we had to go back to the office. I didn't wanna stay home alone, so I went along again. For some strange reason I've had this aweful tooth ache for almost a week now, and we were coming home and the FRG lady called to say I needed to bring a new Christmas ornament already wrapped. Well, at this point I was in so much pain that I was like, lets just go on home since we're so close and then run back to the PX. Another FRG group was outside the PX gift wrapping for donations, so that worked out great! I gave them some cash and bought a 1.49 ornament, since we were low on funds. Made it back to the house with a little while to spare. The FRG lady picked me up and we spent a couple hours at the coffee, and played Dirty Santa to exchange ornaments.

I got this super cute Turtle..there were two of them, and I just had to have it, so I stole it back from someone who didn't have a 'dead' ornament!

The ornament I brought got dropped and I felt so bad, and I meant to tell her where I got it, but forgot and plus I was so embarrassed that I only spent 1.49 on it...I'm sure nobody would have cared, and would have totally understood, bc they were all older and I think their husbands might be higher ranks, so they know where we're coming from, but still. PRIDE....oh well....

Anyways, I meant to write a blog on the baby's birthday, but time just slipt away. Steven and I have been tourist lately since we got the last bit of his TDY leave money. We also bought a Washer and Dryer, TV Stand and Dining Set...Pics to come once our household goods get here!
