Random Report

What a wacky day it was!  After getting kids off to school I cleaned house and got ready for a meeting I had at 10:30. Then I was frustrated with slow uncooperative computers and wished for T to be around to help.  Only 3 more weeks (I know- it's been three weeks for what seems like a couple weeks now.  The date has been pushed back a bit.  No I don't want to talk about it...).

Posting that last video of Baby Girl took me all morning but I finally did it.  Not sure how, just persistence I guess.  Then I was running late for my meeting when T called (an hour or so later than usual).  I couldn't even talk to him because I missed my turn and almost caused an accident slowing down to find a place to get off the road and back on track.  Don't you just hate tailgaters?  My Dad was an awful tailgater.  I'm grateful nothing bad happened.  So I am almost at my meeting and I called because I was running about 5 minutes late at this point, they informed me that I was later than I thought.  About an hour and 5 minutes to be exact, and they were just finishing up.  Whoopsie!  So as I am driving home I am thinking what else do I need to get done now that I am out already.  I have been needing to get to a make up counter for some time now for foundation.  It's, you know- the foundation of any good make-up job, so I don't skimp on cheap brands when it comes to this.  I buy the department store variety.  It lasts and lasts too.  So it's/I'm worth it.  Then I look in the rear-view and Baby Girl is asleep!  At 10:30am?  Wacky!  She naps at 2:00 usually.  Okay- change that plan.  Lucky for me though because I came home just in time to get these at the door.

 

Aren't they fabulous?  The card reads 'see you very soon.'  I haven't had so many flowers in our entire marriage of 17 years.  Yet while we are apart I have gotten them once a month on the anniversary of the day he left.  What an awesome guy!  I really do love flowers.  Thank you sweetheart!  It gave me the push I needed today after the bad news that I need to hang tight for one extra week than planned. I am just hoping by some miracle that he won't have to miss the pinewood derby on the 31st.  Is it lame to pray fervently for such a thing?  Why not?

I feel rather connected to those flowers since I was talking to you on the phone when they were delivered. They look very nice!

They are gorgeous! I have to say, my husband isn't really a super romantic, spontaneous guy. I would love flowers, just because.

Kelly said...

As I said, neither is mine. This deployment has really made us appreciate each other so much more!

Kelly, your flowers are just lovely! That would make my day for sure!

I love your foundation remark! That is so true! The rest of your makeup just doesn't look good unless your foundation is fabulous!

Those flowers are fabulous! So, I know I'm not the best commenter but, I really enjoy reading your blog.
As soon as T gets home you will have to print your blog so you can have it as a journal/scrapbook. I'm still working on getting mine done.
I love your foundation comment! Made my day!
Enjoy those flowers!!! :)

Ahhh...Kelly you are a trooper. The flowers are beautiful and your positive outlook is just as beautiful. I am most impressed that you cleaned your house right after the kids left!! My kids just left and I am sitting down looking at blogs...hmmm. Guess I should follow your example and get going with my LIFE!! I am praying for the 31st...got to get that pinewood derby in! Argh...I HATE when exciting things are postponed!! Stay happy.

What a nice husband ... and just in the knick of time when you're having a rough morning. Hang in there!

So I'm sensing some pinewood derby anxiety as I read through your entries . . . just remember that the ugliest car always wins. I'm not sure how, but it does. Maybe there's some sort of analogy you can draw there.
