Little of this and a little of that

This weekend Matt has his first drill for the Reserves. His drill is over two hours away from where we live so he will be staying there in a hotel. He leaves tonight and won't be back until sometime Sunday. I'm not going to booh whoo about how much I'm going to miss him because after 14.5 months in Iraq, two days is nothing.

Yes, it will suck when I need something off the top shelf and I won't have him to get it for me. But I guess that's why we have a step stool. Sometimes when we are home together all weekend, I try to find things for him to do like outside or away from the house so maybe one weekend apart a month will be a good thing.

I don't want this to seem like I want him to go but I know he has to. And I'm going to have to get used to it.

He is taking the car to drill so I will have his new truck all weekend. I might go to the redneck bar and rev the truck up, you know cause then I'd be cool. Its more likely though that I'll just be driving it to Wal-Mart to buy toiletries. When did I become so lame?

With him gone, I'm going to take full advantage of cleaning our house and doing some homework. I have two papers that need to be finished in 2 weeks. I also have a test Tuesday night.

Speaking of school, FYI, I still have 100% in both of my classes. This is not due to lack of assignments, test, and whatnot. I can register for classes for next semester this coming Tuesday and I'm going to try to take 3 classes next semester. This is my first semester taking 2 so that could be interesting.

I also want to play my guitars this weekend. I've been so busy with taking care of our house, my husband, and my dog and going to school that I have not had time to play either of my guitars in months. I love playing because when I do its like nothing else matters and I can't think of anything else.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

You would be so cool if you went to a redneck bar and revved up the truck..lol.

I agree I never want Eric to leave for work, but at the same time 48 hours alone and you can get alot done. Hope you have a great weekend.

Why is it that when we have free time we clean house and make necessary trips to the store?!
