my heart is whole again!

I've tried writing this entry three times and blogger wouldn't save it. The first three times it was just a quick entry with some pics just to say..


He's in bed so I actually can sit and write.. and if blogger won't save it, i'm not going to be a happy camper. hahaha

This week has been INSANE. I cleaned and cleaned. I organized and did yardwork. Rosalie and I made a ton of posters (to hang up outside our house and 1 to take with us). We baked cookies and a cake. I don't think there was a night that I was in bed before 10 and most of the nights it was after midnight. I'm not no young pup anymore and considering I have a child that gets up around 2 and 5 again, yeah, it's exhausting.

Thursday morning I got up at 5 to start getting ready. I got Rosalie up at 6. We were out the door by 7:40. His plane was suppose to land at 8:30 at our terminal on base so I figured 20 minutes to get there would put us there half an hour early. On my way to the base I heard a phone ringing but I thought it was Rosalie's dvd player. After I realized it was my cell phone, i got sick to my stomach. The number came up unknown and they called twice. I kept waiting and waiting for them to call back but never did. I thought maybe Kevin's plane had landed early. I flew to the base. I pulled into Kevin's shop because it's right next to the terminal and there was no parking at the terminal. I looked out to the flightline and didn't see the plane. For the first time since Maniago I could breathe.

They ended up not landing until 9 so we didn't get to see them til 9:30. I had a photographer come to take pics just because of my whole camera situation. I did take the camera I bought, but I kept it in the car until after we were with Kevin.

I think that moment we were reunited was better than when we were reunited at BMT. Rosalie went to him with ease and in 5 minutes was acting like he never left.

Here's a few of the pics that I took...

Finally home!
Outside the terminal
Love this one of us!

Making a poster for Daddy!

Ro and Daddy!
I got my Daddy and I'm out of here!

The awesome Holly Heisner got tons of pics for us so another day I will put those up!

Oh and my total weightloss during the deployment.. 18.7lbs! Not too shabby I'm back at my pre-pregnancy weight.. now to work on getting back to my pre-college weight. I'd have a lil more than 10 lbs to get back to that!

Yesterday morning Kevin and I booked a spontaneous trip to......


I can't even describe how excited I am. He had requested a couple days of leave because we wanted to go to Garmish, Germany. Well, we got on to book the room and they don't have anything available at Edelweiss until July. It looks like we'll be going in July instead! Kevin's going to see if he can get leave the week of the 4th and we're going to go for a few days. I was pretty bummed, so I thought maybe we could do one of our other big summer trips we have planned. We're also planning Rome and Paris. Well I started pricing Paris. We had originally planned to go in August. After pricing, it's so much cheaper to go in August so that's where that trip will stay. I've always wanted to go to Ireland, so out of curiosity I started pricing plane tickets. It cost just as much to go to Ireland as Rome! I asked Kevin what he thought and he said book it! So the hotel, flight, and car all booked! I'm pumped! We're only going for a few days. We're leaving on Weds morning and have all day Weds and then have all day Thursday and then leave Friday morning. I think Weds after we get there and check in we're going to head into Dublin and take a bus tour that I found. It makes stops at Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin Castle, St Patrick's Cathedral, Kilmainham Gaol and the Old Jameson Distillery. I also want to see Trim Castle, where Braveheart was filmed. The 2nd day we're going to drive the coast and just see the countryside, which is what I really want to see! We're staying in Dun Laoghaire, which is right outside of Dublin. I didn't want to stay right in the city and this hotel we're staying at is awesome!

Well I guess I should get some stuff done before my husband gets up! Ciao!
