It's been a very busy weekend, in spite of the fact we haven't done much in two days but work at home.
Friday night was the formal ball I wrote about on Thursday. I was right, it was hot and I did sweat. I hate to sweat.
We all had a great time and even Elvis stopped in to sing to us for a little while. I knew he wasn't dead!
Yes, he stopped by my table to sing to me !
I was going through the photos we took as well as the pictures my friends posted on their facebook pages and realized I got not ONE photo of me with my husband. What does it say about me when I took photos with the girls and not with him? I guess I know how much I'm going to miss them when we leave. This was like our last hurrah before leaving the island. Here are a few photos of me with my friends.
One of me dancing with the girls:
Yes, we were doing the YMCA, and liking it.
I'm really not sure what we were doing in this one. Goofing off for the camera maybe? We had a nice dinner, listened to a speaker (yawn) and danced for two hours. I probably burned more calories that night than I did all week at the gym.
The rest of the weekend we have spent cleaning out closets, breaking down the guest room so we can use it for a storage room while we wait for the packers to get here on the 7th of June. I know it will come quickly and I do not want them to move anything I wish I had thrown out. I absolutely hate unpacking something that should have never been moved. Here is what my guest room looks like now:
And my hall closet:
On a positive note, I've accomplished a lot. I took a full load to the thrift shop and I have filled two large garbage bags for the dumpster. I can do more of that when my husband is not around. He may be a hoarder, but he will never admit it. Bless his heart.
Tomorrow, the kid and I hit her room. She has boxes in the top of her closet that she never unpacked from our move here four years ago. Seriously.
I am an Army wife and mother of five. I have been married to my Soldier for over ten years and we are currently in our fifth duty station since getting married.
I started later in life with my duties as an Army wife but have tried to make up for it by soaking up as much information as I can. I had some wonderful mentors as I joined this journey and now I want to pay it forward and mentor others.
I started this blog to document my life as an Army wife, mother, volunteer, and one who is trying to make this blended family a great one.
I love to cook, bake, and be a complete internet geek. I'm learning as I go, but as I tell everyone, knowledge is power, so I keep digging for more information!
