They Arrived!!!!!!!

My mom just signed for their Passports! She said she was ready to give the Fed Ex guy a tip! LOL She said she just feels so much better, let me so do I! We got almost everything done today. I got my vacuuming done, the boys room is clean, our now old dining room table (just 4 yrs old but only seated 4) is taken apart, and taken to the storage room. Chad took the government desk down to the storage room as well. I got my craft table moved to where the desk was. All my laundry is put away.

All we have left now is to take Jacob's bed down so we have the two twin beds side by side and finish our bedroom. We'll finish that tomorrow! I don't think Chad's going to take the beds down tonight, but who knows he could surprise me! LOL

We're almost done and all ready for my parents arrival. Ultimately I don't have to have it perfect. I didn't grow up in a house that was always perfect. It was always nice, clean, and comfortable. It's just been a long time since I've seen my parents and well I want it to look as nice as absolutely possible! Of course looking at my desk I need to straighten it up, but that's all I need to do, straighten it up!  I'm actually thinking of talking to Chad and seeing if he'll let the boys have their friend Brandon stay the night. His mom is a great friend of mine and her husband just left for a deployment and I think a break here and there will be nice. She has a new born baby so it's once less child to worry about.

I think it'll all depend if we get everything done tomorrow or not, we should since there really isn't much to finish. We do want to make a run to the commissary in the next 2 days to get my parents their coffee (we don't drink it so we don't have it on hand) and get a few snacks for at least our trip down to Garmisch. We have plenty of fruit, but a little junk is nice too! LOL


I have to tell you though the instant relief I feel now, knowing that all is good with the passports for my parents is great! My mom called and made sure everything is good with their plane tickets. We actually purchased them over here, because they were so much cheaper and they'll just pick them up at the ticket counter. Thankfully KCI is a small airport, so that part will be painless for them and been there at least 50 times or more literally.

Ok well I'm off to get off of here! We didn't end up having dinner because our lunch was so late, but I think I'll make me a snack!
