Last post of 2008 and my 150th post

So, I'm not really sure where to go with this one.... so if it gets rambly I'm sorry ahead of time, I'm just going to induce some verbal diarrhea.and see where that takes us.

So a couple days ago my friend texted me (I'm sure she'll read this actually) and asked simply
"What is you new years resolution"

It took me a couple minuted to come up with a response and i replied back with out really thinking about it stating:
"make it home alive"
I feel bad, because i think i caught her off guard with that. I forget sometimes that people don't think the way i do, and don't go through the stuff that i do.

So i texted my other friend (who happens to be a military wife) about what i had said and we sort of laughed it off. but its just weird to me.

This time next month I'll be in the midst of something much much larger than me. In the midst of things I have NO CONTROL OVER! that's huge for me. like hella huge. I like order, i like being organized, i like knowing whats going on and when to expect things and what to expect. This is possibly one of the hardest parts.

Not to mention I'm flying half way around the world, leaving my home, leaving my family, leaving my life, leaving MY HUSBAND. What a way to start off the year!!

BUT seriously lets look back, in all honesty i don't really think 2008 was all that bad. I read post after post about "lets say good by to a shitty 2008", but for me it wasn't so bad. I had a pretty good year.

-We had our 1st anniversary
-We kept afloat
-We put both of us through college
-We put food on our table
-We have money in the bank
-we have shoes on our feet
-We have clothes on our back.

what more could a girl ask for? I'm married to the man i love. We're looking above and beyond to the next step in our life. but 2008 was good to us. I am ready for 2009 though. I'm excited.
I'm definitely ready.
I'm ready for the next step, the next chapter, the next phase.



“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.”


So not going to work everyday seriously messes with my sense of time!! its weird. I have all the time in the world, and yet none at the same time. Hours at home escape me with out blinking an eye. i'll zone out, and poof its time to leave.

I like having time to relax befor i leave but its still just weird.

i'm constantly tired. i should be working and cleaning. but i'm not. its just to much. i'll do that next week. along with shopping. i've got a list of things i want to get done before i leave.

i'm relly just rambling at this point.

time to go do something...
