I was blessed to be able to quit my part time job and now and can stay home with the kids. Which has been great and tiring! The kids and I stay busy.With dance class, school, martial arts, life group, church, friends...life is non-stop. I'm so happy though. I'm busy, but feel I am getting a lot accomplished and I know my kids love having me home!
Something else new...I have been running! Yes, I am moving this fat butt of mine and running! It's crazy to think that I am running 2-5 miles, when in High School I couldn't even run a mile! I am ready to start doing some races. First up: Galloping Gobbler, Thanksgiving morning. Then the Jingle Bell Run, December 1st. Both are 4 milers...something at this point, I can handle! I just started a little over a month ago, so I'm no pro, but I'm actually really enjoying it!
Henry is 7 months old and ironically..Army crawling everywhere! He finds it faster and more efficient then trying on his knees. I guess he's already trying to be like his Daddy.
Speaking of Daddy...sigh...Jimmy leaves NEXT week for Basic Training!!! 1 week from now he'll be gone, already at Ft. Jackson in South Carolina. I am still quite in denial. VERY MUCH in denial. I can't believe it's really going to happen. I will be a single mama to 3 for 30 weeks....ok ok, 28. He does come home 2 weeks for Christmas..then after that, won't be home until he's done with all his training on July 1st. July 1st...might has well be a year from now, because that's what it seems. Forever. I really don't know what to think or how to feel. I think since he isn't gone yet, it hasn't hit me and most likely won't until a week or so passes and then I know I'm gonna be alone.
Be praying for me. I'm going to need it!
These are some family photos we got taken a few weeks back...might as well get them in, by the time Jimmy comes back, Henry will have changed so much...and hopefully I'll have changed too and will be thinner! :)
