In a week and half, we are moving! Yay! But that also means that things are crazy around here trying to prepare for the big day. I have been packing stuff up in plastic bins and boxes, taking pictures off the wall and pulling out screws and bolts. Shelves are coming down and walls are getting washed. Not a whole lot of time for blogging and surfing the net.
I have been under some major stress these last few days because I discovered that once again when things get tough, Ben gets called away. I am pretty used to it now, but moving all three kids and all our earthly belongings by myself is going to be quite the challenge. The thought is stressful, but I know I can do it... I am one tough cookie when I have to be. And I look at the bright side, at least this move is only to the other side of town. In a year or so, after Ben graduates, I will probably have to move to a whole other state or country on my own -- so I guess this is good practice. Have any of you out there had to move your household on your own?
I am a little worried about getting the big stuff. But Ben has some Army buddies that drive pickup trucks... maybe I can bribe them with pizza or something to help me out. What do you think?
Aside from the move, there has been all sorts of other stuff going on that has kept me busy. Ben had me designing a Military Coin for the ROTC. This was a real pain in the butt, let me tell you. I probably did 10 or more designs trying to please the upper-ups. And had to do 3 or 4 changes here and there before they finally approved the design. And then after all the work, my ego desires a little stoking -- but that doesn't happen in the Army, you just do your job and if you don't get yelled at then you can just consider the job well done.
That about wraps it up for now. I only have an hour before I have to pick up the Tweedles from school, and I really wanted to get a work out in!
Have a fantastic day!
