Month 1 in Review

Did I really just write that?  One month already?  That wasn't too hard....sort of.....but 11 more lay ahead of us.

We said goodbye to Gunner.

We hit the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

Em returned home from London, and she and Abs headed off to Camp Purple.

School started.

I had a breakdown and learned to let things slide.

I did a 1 mile run/walk for the Fallen.  I met the mother of one of the guys who served with Gunner, by chance, and it ended with us both crying.  He was KIA along with Gunner's CO in 2008.

We celebrated my birthday tonight at Red Robin.  I never got around to getting the cupcakes based on carting children to and from.

Tomorrow starts my workout frenzy, and my new Garmin 305 is on order and I can't wait to put it to use.

I got beautiful flowers from my old roommate, and they couldn't have come at a better time.

Now to find my thank you notes so I can get that out in the mail!

Today was also trash day, so that makes 5 trash days down, and 47 more to go.

Here's hoping the rest of the deployment flies by so we can have our family of 5 again.

A belated Happy Birthday to you and just wanted you to know that I am reading your blog from time to time. You are doing a great job as an Army wife and mother. Take care and keep busy. 8-) (an Army spouse for 25 years out of my DH's 35 years in the Army) 8-)

Your life is definitely eventful enough that the time is going to speed by. My husband leaves for our new home next month. Unfortunately, we will not be following until June. Pray I don't pull my hair out.
