Wednesday's Wrandom Wrambling

I swear the last several days, and weeks have been dragging.  Of course, I can't believe it's almost April, but it feel like the days are so loooongggggg.

Maybe it's because for the past two weeks, I keep thinking I am a day ahead of myself and to find out it really is only Wednesday instead of Thursday just bums me out.

My schedule just seems so off!

Chloee LOVES her flat daddy.  He went all over the place yesterday and today spent the day at school.  Tonight after we said prayers and were talking about her day, I asked her what her favorite part of the day was and she answered that is was when she showed everyone at school her Daddy.  Greatest thing ever!

Running again.  Slowly but surely adding some miles.  I am in no way ready for the SL half, but I have reconciled myself to walking part of it if I have to.  No PR to reach, just finish and use it as training.

I got a pretty awesome April fools prank planned.  Hope I can pull it off.  Should be pretty epic.  And no it won't involve posting a positive pregnancy test.  Everyone knows that my girl parts are broken.

My Marine son sent me a wonderful card yesterday. It has been an amazing thing to watch him evolve into the man I always knew was lurking there inside.  When the Marine's advertise their slogan "be all you can be"  they ain't a kiddin.  He is a man that is discovering his true potential and even with as busy as he is right now, he took the time to write  a very heartfelt note of love and appreciation to his Ma.  Made my day.

Did I mention that we got a new bed?  I LOVE my bed.  It's RC Willey's version of the tempurpedic and I couldn't be happier.  Of course being the cal-king size we still struggle to find bedding and usually have to order it online, but it is SOOOOOO worth it.  Love my bed!

Chloee is already planning our first hike of the season.  She points to the mountains and tells us that we are going to climb that mountain and have a picnic on a blanket.  I like how she thinks.  I would be thrilled if she loved to hike. 

Getting back to the summit at Mt Timp is on my bucket list - I need to get planning on that one.

I'm worries that even though the Marine's have given Corbin the choice of a non-deployable battalion, that they will change their minds.  With the crap going down in Libya and us still being in Afghanistan and Iraq, and with all the help needed in Japan, I feat they will renege on the deal.  It's their right.  They can do whatever they want. 

I'm beyond exhausted.  Is it Friday yet??

You must be so proud in seeing the growth of Corbin since he has been in the Marines. I KNOW you are,. I believe you ALWAYS saw in him the man he was and will continue to be.
That's what US moms, do. We believe, we wait to see them evolve, we love them through all of it. we never give up
that's what we mom's do.

and I also love and can see you saying prayers with Chloe. Asking about the best part of her day.
If I could DO IT ALL OVER again with my kids, oh my..........oh my......
the things I would do.
and you have ALL THAT to offer to your grandchild. What a blessing for you.

A new bed! So envious! One of these days . . . yes, I think it really should be Friday already!

I agree with you that the Marines will change their mind. We found out on Monday that Todd is going to Okinawa, Japan. He was supposed to be going to San Diego. Needless to say, everyone is a little freaked out!

It sounds like cholee is keeping you on your toes. What a little sweetheart.

Flat daddy sounds like the next best thing.

I loved your positive post this morning. Makes me hope for a great day for you and me. I love that Sissy has a Flat Daddy. That is way beyond cool!

I know about those secret worries of things not happening the way you're planning and hoping. I hope they don't have to renege on their deal.

Nothing like a good bed. And also seeing your son become the person you'd always hoped.

I need to take my boys to Timp. Maybe we'll get there this summer.

Oh the worries we mothers carry! You are not alone in that!

I have been a day behind all week as well. Working last weekend really messed with my mind. I keeping thinking today is Wed.! Ugh!

Hang in there! Tomorrow is Friday (Hooray) and I wish you a Beautiful, restful, peaceful weekend! =)
