This is a blog about our life. I started the blog because we lived overseas for my husbands job. That meant it was hard to keep family, back in The States, in the loop about what we were up to. It also became a great way to share my sons birth story with everyone who we wish could have been there. I slowly got busy with life & stopped blogging. Here we are in 2014, living back in the good ol' USA & as we make life changes I find this to be a great way to share my thoughts and save them for my son to look back on someday.

January 31st 2011

It has been a while since I posted an entry. I intended to write in this much more often but I get sidetracked and don't get around to it. No, I am not too busy to get it done. I generally have plenty of excess time on my hands. However, these last couple weeks have been hectic. The Mr has been out of the country twice this month. First he went to the states for a class. He was gone for a week. That was a very long week for me. It is one thing to be apart while he is at work for the day or whatever but it is a totally different when he is gone all the way to The States. I worry 24/7 while he is gone. Especially because he was on the East Coast and the weather was bad which equals bad roads. Also, he was finally able to attend his a game and watch his favorite team, The Philadelphia Eagles. I think he really enjoyed that. He also got to make me jealous and enjoy some of our favorite American restaurants. Of course, the trip wouldn't be complete without some good ol' American shopping. All in all I am pretty sure he had a great trip. 
Then last week The Mr went to Italy for an awards banquet. Yes, he was up for an award. He won at the first level so he went to Italy as a nominee for the next level. Unfortunately, he didn't win in Italy. Still super super proud of him for not only winning the award, but it is his second time winning that award in his short career. It seems he had an awesome time in Italy as well. He looks pretty cold in all his pics but I think he still enjoyed it. Also, I was shocked to find out that he tried some wine. My husband is not a drinker and on a rare rare occasion will have a beer so for him to try wine seemed pretty crazy to me. Even more crazy is that he liked it. Well he didn't like them all. I am so happy that he tries new things. I could have went to Italy with him but I had just started new classes and had no idea how hard/easy they would be. So I opted not to go in case the classes turned out to be too hard. 
Speaking of school. I am a couple weeks into Spring classes now. I feel a little overwhelmed in one of my classes but I will push through. Luckily the other class is more of a review for me, so far at least. So it gives me the chance to focus a little more in the other class. Also now that I started new classes, I see a lot less of The Mr. We see each other for a few minutes when he gets home from work and then I head out to class. The hardest thing for me has been planning dinner so that its done when he gets home from work. I also have to get ready for school so I have to make sure to get dressed before I start dinner. Today has been the most successful timing wise so far because I am using the crock pot. It is a good thing so many things can be done in a crock pot because I think I will start using it even more on nights that I have class. 
Lets see what else has been going on...
I guess that is about it. Hopefully things get a little more settled in and I have more time to write here...until next time!
The Mrs.
