On a roll....

on the working out arena of my life. I'm down to almost my pre-baby weight. Granted Junior is 9 months already, but at least he isn't 5 or 6! I'm sore from body pump yesterday and body step today. I love to go, but I think I will take tomorrow off.

I am in the process of signing DQ up for Operation Purple Camp, going to be initiated into PEO and also looking into joining MOPS. I have put off getting involved in too many things here because I was always so focused on helping my parents. My dad passed away from stage 4 kidney cancer last year and I spent the first three years that we were here helping them out in every possible way. I spent every weekend there and also helped out during the week when I was needed. It was hard, but not a job I would have traded for anything. I still miss my dad every day, but I know that I had good quality time with him and so did my children.

Anyway, I figure once I get involved in all these activities we will be whisked away from here by the army and then I will actually miss Fort Hood! I also somehow got signed up to get some career counseling for free through a pilot program military spouses. Hopefully they can help me put together a better resume and find something part time that will peak my interest. I can dream, right? I'm trying to look for the silver and gold lining in all of this....and the 15 month deployments are not either silver or gold...

I am glad you are finally able to make some time for you--and you are using it so productively! I would be tempted to just sleep for a long while. Good luck with the job hunt!!!
