Good morning! I’m feeling particularly good this fine Thursday after having a nice big ol’ cup of coffee. Usually coffee doesn’t really make me feel that much perkier, but today it has definitely helped! Just thought I’d give everyone a quick update and let you know that I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth! The past few weeks have gone by pretty quickly. The weekend of Feb. 26-27th I was able to fly to TX to visit my family, it was a nice relaxing weekend…didn’t do a whole lot, but that’s okay with me. I was able to see my Uncle Johnny and Aunt Phyllis’s house, they are currently building and it’s almost done and looks great!

I spent last weekend cleaning out our pool, painting more closets (not my fav., but at least I got it done!), and moving more stuff around so the hardwood and carpet could be installed. That being said, the flooring was installed last week and it looks GREAT. It really does make a world of a difference and our house is really starting to look like a house again…no more walking around on dusty concrete slab…woohoo!

Here’s a photo I took with my phone, not the best quality…so I plan on cleaning up a bit and taking more photos with my good camera tonight:

In other non-house related news, Frank is taking off in a jet from Korea as we speak. He’s flying it to Hawaii and will be there for about 30 hours for jealous...and then leaving for Montgomery. He will be landing here at home on Saturday afternoon; soo excited to have my hubs home! He’s probably going to be pretty tired after flying 20 hours, not to mention the crazy 15 hour time difference, so I’m thinking this weekend will be pretty low-key.

This is going to sound slightly strange, but I bought a few books on Islamic Law…mostly because I’m just really curious to know what the belief’s of the Islamic religion are, and how they are reflected in their laws. I’m also curious about how the women are treated too. This book looks pretty interesting and is written by a woman who grew up under Islamic Law in Egypt and later converted to Christianity and moved to the United States: Cruel and Unusual Punishment.

And no...I still have not even read the first page of my really humongous American History book I bought about a month ago...whoops. I need to get started on that one eventually too.
I am sooooo sooooo soooooo ready to be able to cook in the kitchen again. Tonight I am going to tackle that kitchen and maybe...just maybe unpack some cooking supplies. Then I might go shopping at our new organic grocery store Earth Fare(it's awesome!), and stock our fridge and pantry before Frank gets home.

And of course, while I'm writing this I get a call from Frank on the runway in Korea telling me that they just found out that they are closing the runway and there's a pretty good chance that he'll get pushed back 24 hours :(. You almost expect that kind of stuff to happen when there are so many jets flying back at once, but it still stinks. I'll keep my fingers crossed that he gets out of there on time, but if he doesn't it'll probably be Sunday or Monday before he's home. Bummer.


  1. The floors look great!!! I really like ya'lls house! And I hope Frank get's back on Saturday, I bet your ready to see him!

  2. Hi baby! I didn't know you had a blog. Not coming home Saturday- cross your fingers for what might happen next. Luv u

  3. You're silly- you know I have a blog! Can't wait to see you, hopefully Sunday? Talk to ya on Skype later. :)
