UGH...notice how most of my posts lately start off "BAD BLOGGER"?!?!?! LOL Part of the problem is I can't sign in to create new posts when I'm at school (darn web blockers..BAD TEACHER! LOL) and by the time I get home, I forget about it...until I get to school again, can't log in--- the vicious cycle continues!

Anyhoo....LOTS going on here! Some major life changes coming up for our family...one I can't spill quite yet but the other is a HUGE career move for Vince! A lot of you know he flies the Cobra attack helicopter, WELL the Marine Corps has come out with a "new and improved" version of his helo....SO he has been chosen as one of the west coast guys who will be trained on this latest version of the Cobra! Awesome, right? He'll be a part of a historical change for the Corps and he'll have SO much fun doing it...awesome, right??? WELL, he has to go TAD (temporary assigned duty) to a base 3 hours north of here. Meaning he'll be gone Monday-Friday and HOPEFULLY will make it home every weekend...not so awesome, right??? :) I haven't been a "geographically single mom" in quite a while and was looking forward to 2-3 years of not having to do it at ALL. BUT he's very excited about this and it's a wonderful opportunity so my potential hang-ups about it would be a stupid reason for him to say no!

I look at it this way, I'll get lots of scrap-therapy in during the week while he's gone! That's IF I can manage to stay sane juggling a full time job, house, and 2 kids! Calgon take me away.................
