Quick update in between homework.
First of all, I've lost nearly twenty pounds. Had to throw that out there first because I'm a girl and these things are important to girls.
Also very important is the fact that tomorrow is officially the last day of my first semester of college. Thank you. Thank you. Yes, I have a ways to go but, dang it, it took me a long time to just get here so I'm pretty stoked.
This Summer already has many activities planned including (hopefully) an AWP trip and a trip to Walter Reed. The AWP trip I'm hoping to go on is to Seattle to kayak with killer whales. As soon as I saw this opportunity I nearly peed my pants. Then I called Kelly so she could pee hers, too. Three of my favorite widows and I are going to be waiting by our computers the day we are supposed to sign up in hopes that we will be able to get on it. Getting on these trips involves virtual widow cat fights (not really, it's just how I imagine it when there are too many who want to go on one trip). Going is never guaranteed. Keeping my fingers tightly crossed.
As far as Walter Reed, Kelly and I are going to show some love to my favorite people in the whole wide world and their families. We're hoping to grow a little project from there, but for now we're just going to bring some care packages and maybe some yummy food. High fives and cheesy jokes are a given.
I'm hoping to work on my book a bit more this Summer since I'll most likely be bored a lot. I'm still going back and forth as to whether or not I want ALL of my dirty laundry flailing for the world to see, but I still want to finish it even if it's just for me, myself, and I.
I started writing for MilitaryFamily.com a few months ago. I forgot to mention that. I haven't had too much time to contribute recently but plan to contribute more to that this Summer as well. Ya'll check it out if you'd like. It's a newer site, but it's quickly filling up with useful info for...wait for it... Military Families.
This update is becoming longer and longer.
Nicholas is still adorable and his silly jokes still make me laugh.
My parents still live in the tundra.
I still miss Cleve (more every day).
I still have the cutest dog in the world.
Oh, I have a "tan" (color other than clear) for the first time in six years.
I'm starting to feel bad for wasting precious internet space on this post.
Time to get back to homework.
