"Honey, can you take off your underwear for me?":Random Tuesday Thoughts

I can't believe it's already Tuesday again...but it is! I've been busy...just got back from PCB Sunday around 2100 and thankfully had a restful Monday. Pretty much all I did was laundry...and speaking of laundry...

Why is it when you're trying to wash EVERYTHING that is dirty,
your husband (or children, if you have them) is
always wearing something that needs
to be washed. For example: When I did laundry Monday,
I took all the colored clothes and separated
them into dark colors and light colors.
I even went so far as to take off my undies
to add to the first load of light clothes.
Then, since it was time for a shower anyway,
I added my dark dress to the dark clothes for
the next load and my white camisole to the whites.
Then I took a shower which meant everything I put
on afterwards was clean... and the only thing that
remained dirty when I was done with laundry was
what J was wearing. How annoying...I wanted
ALL of our dirty clothes to be cleaned
at the same time. Now I'm going to have
two white socks, a pair of white boxer shorts
and a dark tank-top and light shorts...
Which means they'll remain dirty until we've
accumulated enough whites, light colors, and dark
colors for three loads...*sigh*.
I DO LOVE having his laundry to wash again though. LOL.
Sorry if this is not random enough, I haven't had
time to think much about blogging. :)
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Dolly say what?:Random Tuesday Thoughts

Is it Tuesday already? Seems like J got home only yesterday...but it's already been 4 days! I'm enjoying every second! Anywho...on with the randomness:

I was listening to music videos today
and one that I'd never heard came on.
It was Dolly Parton. I didn't even know she
still came out with new songs...let alone videos.
And then...I started actually watching the video.
NO really...look at this:

Dolly...what were you thinking? This is
HORRIBLE! The song might not be that bad.
But I couldn't even pay attention to the
song because of the awful video!

Please tell me that she has better videos than this
one out there...eww.

Anywho...for more randomness...go visit The Un-Mom. Read hers,
and if you so wish, write your own and link up! Be sure
 to check out other people's blogs too! Have fun!
Happy Tuesday! :)

I love having my Soldier home!

Not having to worry about him anymore is such a relief! I'm sure there are many of you who know exactly what I'm talking about. I have a few minutes to type out this blog post since J is working on his truck with his Dad. That's right, we're in Florida at his parents' house. It's so nice to finally be able to relax and not have to worry about what to pack and whether I got everything or not. Haha. *FYI: I didn't forget anything...:)* Hopefully they'll finish working on the truck this week so we can get back home to Alabama to spend some time with my family before we head off on our own vacation by ourselves. *I'm most excited about that trip!*

Since we don't really have a whole lot of time to get online while we're down here, I may not be posting for awhile. Bare with me please. :) Hope y'all had a great Labor Day weekend with your families and friends. Have a great week!

Love, Whit

A Friday to Remember....

Even though this post has been scheduled to appear at this time...I know exactly where I am when it appears. :) 

That's because what I've been keeping inside this entire past week, is about to make me burst!.... 

Don't you want to know what it is? I'm sure if you haven't guessed already, you're starting to get a little anxious to find out...

The moment you've all been waiting for, but not nearly as long as I have...366 days to be exact.....Well...here it is:

He's HOME! Not only is he safely in the USA, he's HOME! And in my arms, as you are reading this! 

I couldn't be any happier than I am right now. Thanks so much for all of your support and prayers. Your support means so much to me!!

Now if you don't mind...I think I'll go make up for the past year...

God Bless Our Troops!

Mil-Spouse Friday Fill-In #6

Note: As I said before, this post is scheduled since I am...busy. :)

This is probably only the second time I've gotten the Mil-Spouse Friday Fill-In done before Friday. HA! And it's all thanks to Wife of a Sailor who hosts the Friday Fill-Ins and who emailed me this week's questions a day earlier than normal so that I could participate. Without further ado:

1. What is a weird/funny superstition that you have? From A{muse}ing Mommy on a Pink Park Bench
I'm not really sure what would be considered a weird/funny superstition...I have to say though that thinking there's something watching me is probably weird.
2. What are your hopes and dreams AFTER the military? After all, we aren't in it forever! From Stetsons, Spurs and Stilettos
I haven't really thought about it much. It's still all pretty new to me, even after almost 3 years of being with my Husband. I won't think about it now, I'll think about that tomorrow. HA!
3. Since [this] month is National Apple Month (no, really!), I'd probably ask: What is your yummiest apple recipe? From NH Girl Displaced
I don't cook. So I really don't have a recipe. But one of my favorite apple recipes that my MOM makes is to core the apple, fill full of brown sugar and cinnamon. Put a pat of butter on top, place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for about 6-8 minutes or until tender. It was the best after-school snack, especially in the fall. :)
4. How long have you gone, as a military spouse without talking to your husband during service? From A Navy Princess and Her Little Sailors 
The longest I've gone is probably two weeks. It was horrible. 
5. I occasionally watch "When I was 17..." on MTV. So, what was significant about your 17th year of life? From Ashley Amazing
I really couldn't tell you anything significant that would interest you...I got my license when I was 17 and had my first and only wreck, so far *knock on wood*. That's about it...

That's it for this week's questions. I hope everyone has an awesome Friday and an awesome weekend! Happy Labor Day and all that jazz! For more Mil-Spouse Friday Fill-Ins and to participate, head on over to wifeofasailor.com and link up!

Plans gone awry: Update

Note: All posts this week are scheduled due to the mass load of laundry and tasks I have yet to finish...

Tuesday was a busy, busy day. I had so many errands to run, I never thought I'd finish. As I posted last Friday, my car had to be taken to the shop to find out why exactly, Wally World couldn't do my oil change. 

So this morning, bright and early, Mom followed me down to drop my car off. I went in, told the guy my supposed problem and left him the key. Took all of 3 minutes. 

We left there and headed to The Pinnacle. I had to pick up an order that the Hubby placed for me. I got there and tried on the intimate apparel and they were...not what I consider...me. So, I tried on LOTS of different items and finally settled on a few of them. After we left that store, Mom and went to Claire's and I got some accessories to wear with my outfit for tomorrow. 

Then we had to go to Mom's eye-doctor appointment. They checked the pressure in her eyes and it was still high, so they wanted to run some more tests. Unfortunately, we had already set up a lunch date with Suzette (a fellow army wife) for 1:15 so they had to cancel the tests and set up a new appointment for Mom. 

Of course, after we left there, we met up with Suzette and had an awesome lunch at Chick-fil-A. It was so yummy! We talked for over an hour. I'm surprised we even finished eating! 

Then we went over to the shopping center and I got my hair cut and eyebrows waxed. Lemme tell you...that was PAINFUL! But completely necessary! HA! 

And, because no outfit is complete without the perfect pair of shoes, we went to Kohl's. I found the cutest Mudd shoes! They were only $9.99! I saved $40! What do you think?

After we finally left there, I called to check on my car since no one had called me yet. The guy who answered was surprised when I told him that no one had called. He then told me that there was absolutely no problem with my oil pan or the plug. There was no reason Wally World should have declined to change my oil. All it needed was a proper mechanic apparently. He did replace the gasket while he was at it. 

Lesson learned: Don't go to Wally World to have your oil changed. 

We had a great day, but it was VERY exhausting. So glad I got all that accomplished though. :)

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!
