Okay Melanie....I'm posting already! 7 months isn't that bad, is it??
Gees, what has gone on since the last time I updated? Or rather, what hasn't gone on! I posted last that I started my MBA. Well, I stopped. Not permanently, just until I am eligible for the GI Bill next September. I have racked up too many student loans already, so a free education sounds much better.
I have a new addition to my family....Jinx! He is a absolutely gorgeous Champagne Point Tonkinese kitten, 5 months old next week. Here is a picture of him with his brother when he was about 9 weeks old, I'm not sure which one is him since to me they look just alike, but I will post other pictures that I have as soon as I upload them to my computer. It took him and Skittles only about a week to actually like each other, but now they chase each other around everywhere and are always sleeping side by side!
I had some laminate wood flooring put into the great room of my house and it looks fantastic! I also painted the dark panelled wall a pretty shade of green so light it looks white (unless next to a true white color). It really opens up the room and makes it cheerful! I have dismantled the boy's playroom and moved all of his toys back into his room. Now that room will be my sewing/craft room. Plus all of the workout equipment is going into the front room. I bought more paint to paint the bathroom and got new fixtures, so all that is keeping me busy and I am actually finally enjoying going home to a nicely fixed up house, rather than the dark, dirty-carpeted place I used to have! Oh, and I'm getting a privacy fence installed, so that will be very nice too. Now if only the trees would die and go away!
I went to San Jose, CA last weekend. My Honey drove up from Lemoore to meet me there. It was wonderful and we had a GREAT time! We spent Saturday in San Francisco which was really cool. We have plans to go back again for a longer time so that we can see more of it. He is leaving for a 2 month deployment next week, gets back in December, then turns right around in January and goes away again for 6 months. Then, hopefully, I can move out there and stop all of this long distance stuff.
Well, that's all I can think of that's been going on....I'll be driving to my parents today for the long weekend, so that will be fun. I'm taking the cat with me to play with their cat (same birthday!) and my brother may bring his cat over as well (same birthday too!)
