FIL will be returning home on Monday. The hammers are flying outside, as two men build the final stages of the ramp that will make it possible to actually get FIL into the house.
I wonder if I could slow them down a little? You know, so that they would need more time and FIL wouldn't be able to come home for one or twelve additional days...
BAD ANNIE! BAD!
I was going to rant and rave about the workload, the stress, the games that FIL has been yanking everyone through.
But I won't.
Instead I will tell you only good news. Ha!
Good news number one: Soldier Mommy is in the house! Okay, well, not in the house. She's more like in the area and as soon as the US Army gets all their paperwork completed she'll be home with her boys! She's safely out of enemy fire and we are thankful (THANKFUL) for her safe return from parts hot and sandy.
Isn't that great news?
Good news number two: God is still God regardless of what's going on in the world.
Good news number three: I heard from Baby (my youngest brother). As is usually the case, he is staying out of all the family drama and gossip. I have always loved that about him. It was nice to hear his voice and to know that he isn't taking sides.
Good news number four: I've only got one more week of training my newbies and then they'll be ready to fly! Training is a soul sucking experience. I'm just sayin'.
Good news number five: Over the last few months I have been trying to convince a lady to come in and check out our gym. She's a big girl. Very. Big. and I know that she was fearful of even walking into Curves. Last Monday, she did just that! I'm so very proud of her. She's a sweetheart and I know we at Curves can help her change her life. It's women such as this that make me love my job.
I'm sure there is more good news out there. Certainly the fact that school is nearly out is reason to celebrate. The flowers are blooming and my family is healthy. Life is good. That, and the cows are still secured in the upper pasture!
