i miss myself.
i haven't seen much of me lately.
here's what's been up:
last Thursday i kicked that PT test's ass
(at 6am. in 50 degree weather. i was running. fml.)
upside is, i scored high enough that i don't have to take another one for another year.
(i highlight this point because though, yes, i am in the Air Force,
athletic achievements have never been my strong suite.
maybe you picture me as an ultra-fit ass-kicker by trade.
not so, friends.
SO not so.)
there was a hot minute last week where i thought about jumping on a plane to Baltimore
to welcome my brother home from Afghanistan
but that didn't work out.
more on that later.
i started a CCU rotation on Friday.
and worked 7pm-7am for 5 days in a row.
sleeping during the day leaves little time for anything else
especially when you're cramming to take Step 3 of your board exams.
it's only a 9 hour test that i HAVE to pass in order to get a medical license.
and my inlaws are coming into town tonight.
so i cleaned the house from top to bottom.
some days, being a working housewife really blows.
(not to rag on the hubby.
he did good this week...you'll see.)
like i said.
i've been busy.
but there've been plenty of delightful things happening this week as well...
i'd like to take a quick moment to give props to all of you
for sharing your hearts with me
in response to last week's post.
you have no idea how much community i felt
and what a blessing it was to know that i'm not alone in feeling this way.
i'm currently composing a whole post about it
but i keep getting choked up as i write it
so be patient...it's coming.
but until then, thank you.
from the bottom of my heart.
things that made me happy:
|this guy coming home.|
wish i'd gotten to squeeze his cute little face before he jetted back to Okinawa for a bit
it's okay though.
he'll be back.
and he's no longer fighting a war.
|okay one more. what can i say?.. he makes me proud.|
i crafted a bit...
|old pallet + travel prints|
yes, that is a vacuum cord in the background.
i told you i cleaned.
|close up. happy memories. (:|
i indulged in a little online shopping
and purchased this side table
|from West Elm. (psss. it's on sale this week.)|
hubs totally redeemed himself
(for the whole making-me-clean-up-for-his-parents-coming-to-town)
and surprised me with this:
|me. happy. sans makeup. try not to be afraid.|
i woke up on Sunday afternoon
opened the bedroom door
and there it was
waiting for me.
my very own iPazzle
so this week hasn't been a total loss.
p.s. if any of you have tips on how to best view your Google reader on the iPad,
i'm struggling here.
