He's Coming Home Early!!!!!

Chad's going to be home in a few hours! I'm so excited I can't stand it, you'd think he's been gone for monthS or a year or something the amount of giddiness I have going on, but no, just 1 month! LOL Anyways, I have so much to do. The boys are cleaning their playroom. I'm about to start working on my bedroom putting clothes away, vacuuming, getting rid of things we don't need/want. I'm then moving into the kitchen and going to clean the floors, I won't say how long it's been since I swept. Actually the length of time it's not been swept it's impressively not as horrible as you'd think! Then I'll be vacuuming the rest of the apartment, then cleaning the bathroom...I mean a good deep cleaning! Jacob has recycling to take out, and I have more laundry to start washing. I don't expect to have the current dirty clothes all washed by the time he gets home, but I'd like to make a decent dent in it!

 

So have a FABULOUS Monday, I am going to!!!!!

Oh and today my baby girl is 7 months old! I'll take pictures later! I can't believe she's 7 months old. A little story really quick. Jordyn was 7 months old to the day when we arrived in Germany, Chad hadn't seen her since she had been 7 weeks old....and here he is coming home on the day Emma's 7 months old, 9 yrs later. So much has changed in our lives there's the obvious of Jordyn going home to Heaven, having the boys and Emma, but there's the other things like the fact that we're a family walking with Christ. We're much older :), hopefully a LITTLE wiser, in some ways gentler, while other ways harder. A lot bigger! :X It's kind of a bitter sweet day thinking of it. I can still feel that excitement of getting off the plane and literally not being able to see because I had to leave a bag with my parents (too many oops!) and stupidly left the wrong one...it had my contact solution and glasses, so my contacts were so dry and messed up I had to have a flight attendant actually help me because I couldn't see more than a few feet in front of me, she walked me through customs and into Chad's arms! Back then the military post that was right off of Frankfurt Airport was still open, so we stopped at the shoppette and got me contact solution and a new case and I was able to wear my glasses on the way home...which felt sooooooooo good! I still remember just being so giddy to see Chad....crazy that's how I feel right now!

God's good. He gave me a wonderful husband! He loves me so much and I thank God for that!

 

God Bless
