Our weekend

Well another weekend went by. They seem to go so fast. We had a gloomy weekend because of the weather but made the best of it. My daughter didn't get to have her softball tournament because her coached forgot to get them signed up! Not a good thing. So since we didn't have anything planned until Sat night we enjoyed our day just hanging out. Sometimes those rainy gloomy days are the perfect days to make you just lounge around and relax. Sure- I had tons of stuff to do but there is always tomorrow. I was able to get tons of reading done and didn't even take a shower until 130. hubby called and was shocked when my daughter told him I was in the shower. LOL  He knows me well enough to know that is a very rare moment in deed.

Saturday night we went to town and was part of the closing ceremonies of a festival they were having. Our family was asked to be involved since hubby was deployed. They invited us on stage with a few 3 other base families to talk about us and let the community see some families who are impacted with the war and how we are involved in the community. More of a thing to show that we are regular people just like them EXCEPT our lifestyle is different, just a tad-- right!!  :-)

  It was very nice when they clapped and appreciated us. As we were leaving 2 women stopped who were from out of state to tell us how much they appreciated our family and to let us know that they are praying for us. They said to know that may people pray for the soldiers and their families. This made me feel so good inside. Sometimes you wonder what civilians think about the military.

They were from Maine and talked about how they don't have any bases near them so they never hear about families locally and it was so nice to see a ceremony with military families and such.


So Sunday was another relaxing day playing cards with my mom and son while my daughter played with a friend.

Overall we had a great weekend. I paid no attention the to the leak that is in my bathroom waiting for me to take care of it. (yes the water is off) I did make a small attempt to fix the mower and decided to just drop it off at a repair shop. Sometimes I need to take the easy route- normally I would have messed with it more but decided it wasn't worth the stress it was causing and would give it to someone else to deal with.

I look forward to this weekend because I am going on a spouses flight. A little nervous about motion sickness but we shall see.

What a nice weekend. How nice to be able to read so much and it is wonderful when people tell you they appreciate what we do.

Its never something I wish was acknowledged towards me, but isn't hearing "Thank you" one of the best things? It always makes me swell with pride for my hubby.

Awww sounds like such a nice weekend despite the gloomy weather. It's so nice to get support from civilian families who might not completely understand our lifestyle but support us anyway. That was so sweet of them! =)

If you are worried about motion sickness, take dramamine with you. You take one pill every 8 hours and you will be fine. It works pretty well for me!
