Jerry is up for a promotion on March 28th. We could once again choose to go anywhere in the state that there is a prison (sadly--or really probably goodly there is none near my beloved Ozarks); but this time around we are going to stick to this side of the state. We got really good news on Friday that Jerry might be able to stay right where he's at and not transfer. We'll know by mid-April. I found this house on the internet. I would really like to live there. Yes, just a mobile home but still beautiful land, has a great workshop for my quilt work area and so much better than our duplex. And we could have a dog. I really really want a dog.
Here is the website for the home
I've not touched a needle or thread in over a week except for last Thursday's Ahhhh. I am having serious withdrawal symptoms. I think I'll beg some sewing time tonight. (update...it's almost 8 pm...maybe I'll just try tomorrow night instead.)
I caught Stephen standing in front of the mirror the other day with some tweezers. He was attempting to pluck his chin hairs. LOL, it must have hurt because the next time he saw me plucking chin hairs he went crazy telling me "No momma! Ouch! No!" Poor Stephen--his trials of having 'old' parents have just begun.
Tonight is Mexican Monday! We are trying to eat very good but I REFUSE to give up Mexican Monday. Tonight, bean burritos with Rotel. (A mexican cheese dip for those that don't know).
My friend called this morning while I was writing this post and wanted me to go find a quick geocache. After two years of living here with no friends I have finally found one. She likes to hike a lot and cache alot just like I did before Stephen came into my life. We hiked several miles last week. It feels good to hit the trails again! (Although it is tiring lugging a 2 yr old around with us.) Anyway, we started the day with a nice little walk and my geocache stats are climbing thanks to her!
Ever heard of Brandilyn Collins? Mercy. I just read another of her books straight through. It's storming here today and Stephen had trouble staying asleep during his nap so I snuggled down with him and picked up another Brandilyn Collins book. Read it from beginning to end. I do that every single time with her books. Suspense. Murder. Surprise twists and turns. That's how I spent my last two hours. I should have been sewing probably. Or cleaning. But, hey, an afternoon thunderstorm snuggle was more fun. Here's the trailer for the newest B. C. book:
Usually I try to pull a photo up from our past...but I am running terrible slow getting this post out. I've been working on it for almost 8 hours now. I guess I better just grab one from my computer instead of taking the time to scan an old one in. Some of you have seen this before. It's my favorite shot of Stephen and I. When did my baby turn into the ornery little boy who I can currently hear giggling as he jumps in rain puddles with his brother?
