Sept. 23. 2009...

The day a little part of my life changed.
On this day last year it was a Sunday. I woke up just like any other day.. however something was different.
My little home was filled with stuff that would send my husband to Iraq for 4 whole months.
He left and things changed .. I started working.. and going to school.
Life got really busy and the deployment went by fast because of it being busy.
I learned to fix things on my own and how to send a care package.
I learned that the best love comes from being apart. It really shows how much you need that person and how much when that person is always around you tend to take for-granted.
Together a year later he is home and we are standing strong!
Were having a nice dinner and a movie. Were going to stop our lives and stay in to remember and reflect on what we have accomplished!

I have become sick at the worst time in my life.
I am so busy.. and to be sick is slowing me down.
Well tmrw I will have an awesome post I hope .. Tmrw is a special day for my husband and I..
Until then I will keep being eek.. and I am sorry for the lack of posting at the moment.
I will soon be back on track.
Stick with me please.. THANKS

Right Now!

This little family is working hard with him being in ALS and me teaching at both places and going to school.
My husband and I talk about how life is so busy at the moment.
Will it ever get back to normal?
Will we get what we want in the end of it all..?
I am sure it will.. well.. here is a little motivation if you all are feeling the same..

And will you succeed?
Yes indeed, yes indeed!
Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.

September 11.

Today we should remember the events and the people who have and still are placing their lives on the line for our FREEDOM!

I remember I was in High School! I came in from P.E with the news on the tv's all around my high school.
My next few hours of school were a blur because it was all about the news and the events that were taking place.

Years later I would have never thought I would be married to someone who fought in a war for my protection as well as others.

I am happy it is Friday, but my Weekend does not start until 3:30 tmrw .
I have a workshop to attend which I am excited about..something about LEARNING makes me HAPPY!

Earlyer this week I was given a raise and a new teaching position at another school that I am excited about.
I will be teaching at one school in the morning and another in the afternoon! With two morning off a week due to college class'! I am finding it hard at the moment to balance everything but once I am in the swing of it I am thinking that it will get just a littler easyer!

This evening Mike and I had to attend an ALS function. I guess being a military wife I am used to not complaining and just going with the flow of things because I can not change a thing. It really surprises me that there are a few wives who do complain about every single thing!!!! Those ladies always ruin it for others.. We had a good time and it was nice to meet some of the ALS instructors that will be spending a lot of time with my husband and his studies!

After we left the function I needed to get some prime items like DIET PEPSI! To help me with the weekend.. and we managed to find the best drink ever.. the one that says ITS FALL!!!

Apple Cider! 
Ahhh were from the north! A few years back Mikes mom introduced me to HOT APPLE CIDER!
It was LOVE haha!! Now every now and then during the fall we set the air on HIGH!! Because we live in Florida.. and get in PJs and have Hot Apple Cider with cinnamon sticks! 

So that's what the night holds for us due to my class in the morning and Mike has a study group in the afternoon!

Have a good night!

He Has Started..

My husband got into the first round of ALS here on base! 
He started yesterday morning bright and early!
I was one proud wife.. that I had to wake up to show him some love!

It was 6am and he was a little tired... :)

New boots for the journey!

I had to make him a card the night before!

I always feel when he gains a rank I gain one to.. and this one is going to feel good to gain!

School Has Started.. With A BANG!

Wow the extra long weekend made me LAZY!
This week is going to be a long week!

Mike is back to working and starts ALS tmrw.
I am back in to action teaching Pre-K three days a week at one school and two days a week at another school! 
Plus my weekend class' have come into effect!

I do think the best part about being a teacher is teaching the next generation!
I understand that for the time that I have the children I have, I can make the difference in their lives!

Hope you enjoy!

At Last.. Relaxing!

We got the apt. in order! YAY!
I am not sure if I did say anything about it but we signed on our lease for another 7 months. In 7 months.. Mike will be a new rank.. and we will have lived here for 3 whole years! I know I know.. 
I figured a lot of other things can get figured out and in order to .. like a few bills.. and more schooling.
For the moment we are content.. only for the moment tho..
I wanted to share this year has been the year of giving for Mike and I. We decided to donate and join anything that can help anything.
We have managed to donated tons of time to local schools. 
Join in a few 5 ks to help causes.
and a few weeks ago we started collecting our soda caps.
We tend to drink a ton of soda..while I was on vacation my sister said "why aren't you donating your caps for cancer research?" I had nothing to say other then "WE ARE GOING TO! Ha!"

So now we are... Ronald McDonald House takes every top ! 

Now on to GIVEAWAY time.

There are still a few giveaways going on.. and I am still adding more with other blogs and sites. I am trying to get the word out there to HELP SUPPORT THE TROOPS!
