A peek at our newest family photos by my FAB friend, Lisa.
We've just been going through the motions these last few days, and that's not really interesting. So I just kind of hid my head in shame and didn't write anything.
But then I missed writing.
So here I am, with nothing particularly interesting to write about, but who cares?
One month from today Jeff will be DONE with school and ROTC. Woohoo! On to the next stage. He should find out this Friday what specialty he was selected for (Transportation, Logistics, Artillery, Infantry etc). He still has some schooling with the military to finish up, his BOLC (Basic Officer Leader Course), and then we shall move on again to the next chapter.
I recently bought myself a new pair of slippers that I am in freaking love with. Some people love designer brands, I love my comfort items like slippers and robes. I tried really hard to wait until Christmas for some slippers, but yo, I live in Montana, it gets way too cold to just be walking around my house in socks. I do need a robe for Christmas...
Speaking of Christmas, has anyone else started compiling a list?
I have. It is a list not yet complete, but filled with photo visuals for reference and lots of links.
I told my dad yesterday I might just make a PowerPoint.
Anyone who knows me should have the undoubted knowledge that I like myself some ice cream. Also, I'm not one of those people who is like, "Oh, I would just like a little scoop of ice cream." Heck no! I am the person that's like give me two scoops...different flavors...with toppings...no I'm not sharing with you...It's MINE (*please insert best Gollum voice here*). So lately I have become addicted to the Talenti Gelato. Um holy yum! My personal favorite is the Caramel Cookie Crunch. Being that I am watching my weight, I usually eat some of this only on Friday nights or Saturdays and that's really all I need to get me through the week. My husband is not a big sweets fan, he likes things salty and with cheese. However, there is a new development in our relationship where as soon as I pop open that pint of gelato, he is right there with a spoon trying to deprive me of that sweet, sweet goodness. Because I like him, I share, but on the inside...well...you really don't want to know. It isn't pretty.
Gibby has been getting very brave recently and is trying to bring himself up to standing all on his own. On Sunday, he pushed himself up on his feet and stood BY HIMSELF for about five seconds.
Caderyn has been very curious about where I work this week. Because I work at a Catholic college, he wants to know if "God is my boss?" and "Have I met God because I work for him?" When I asked him why he thought that he said, "Well you have to work for God because there are all those crosses with Jesus where you work."
That kid doesn't miss a thing.
Lucy has been staying at the vet the last few nights. Poor little doggins is super sick and needed an IV for hydration she can't keep anything in her for more than 15 minutes. The vet called this morning and said she is doing better and might get to come home tonight or early tomorrow. They did x-rays and tests and couldn't find anything threatening, she just got super sick. Poor Gooser!
I've brought back the Peppermint Mocha creamer to my mornings. It has made them considerably better.
And there you have it.
