I, being the lucky little Navy wife I am, got to go visit my Mom this last weekend! I loved being able to go and visit her. There is nothing like hanging out with your mom to relax you a little bit.
She and I got pedicures, ate tons of yummy food, went to the zoo, ate some more, walked around lots, relaxed, and just generally enjoyed each other's company. We talked a lot about the changes that are coming up for J and I, and yet again I have realized that I know next to zilch about what will be happening in our lives in the next ... lets say 3 months.
I have no idea where I or we will be living, I don't know where I will be working, I don't know if both of my dogs will get to come with us. Will I have made friend? Will we live in a sketch neighborhood? Have annoying neighbors who throw house parties every night and have giant crazy dogs want to eat my wiener dog as a midnight snack? Will my husband be deployed? Will we be living together again? I could keep going, but I am sure you get the idea.
Even as I think about all these questions rolling around in my pretty little head, I know that there is nothing that I can do to answer most of them. My life is in the hands of the US Navy. And while I am sure they are very capable, they sure will take their time letting us know what's going on. And it's not like I am high on their list of Navy wives who want answers.
Being with my mom was a nice break from reality. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful mother. But now that I am back to reality, I am back to taking care of the homefront and getting to those tasks there were a little too overwhelming for me a few weeks ago. Most of it being the pile of paper work building on my desk (no bills of course!). In my crazy pile of doom I found the debit card my husband was asking about. The debit card I swore up and down did not come in the mail. Oops. Awesome. What else could be lurking in the pile of doom? Maybe I'll get to it... Tomorrow... Or the next day.
Peace out G's!
