The Good Life

Went to the beach this morning with Aaron and Drake. It was so beautiful outside. Love the cool air and the sound of the waves crashing. I can't wait for Aaron to be done with flight school so he can just sit and relax on the beach instead of study on it. I am so thankful though that I am married to such a good man.

First COLD front!!! Woohooo.... I knew it was going to be in the sixties early this morning so I woke up at 7:30 to take Drake for a walk around the neighborhood. It was well worth it! Got my exercise and enjoyed the beautiful morning. Now I have a some banana cinnamon bread baking in the oven for Aaron when he gets home. Smells like fall. I love this time of year.

Okay im getting deep but....

Just sitting here thinking about relationships. We talked about relationships this morning at church, and after the day i've had it's no wonder the word "relationship" has come up so much. Dealing with some friends that are going through some marriage difficulty and amongst other things, thinking about why they work out the way they do. It seems like just when you think every thing is going great...bam. I wonder why God makes us the way we are..two completely different people with different opinions, personalities, and ways of relating. Maybe life would be to boring if we were the exact replica of each other.

Do we ever think how are lives would be drastically different if that person wasn't around. Just sayin...

I think sometimes we tend to put our selves first ALL OF THE TIME when in reality you should put others first. Choosing to give selflessly and doing "giving" to them what you would want to be given and done to you. Hard..yes..impossible..no.

Cars don't run for 200, 000 miles with out an oil change and new tires...

"Our marriage shouldn't take this much work. " (Trust me it should)

Sometimes it feels like well maybe if I was this way then he/she would be this way or if he/she would just be this way then it would be so much better and easier. In reality you can't change them, you must look within yourself.

That's when you get on your knees and start praying.

My Day

Woke up this morning at 4:45 to see Aaron off for his cross country. So I couldn't go back to sleep and the t.v. kept me company while Drake was snoozing away.
He made it to North Carolina so happy!
I found the best kept doggy secret in Corpus Christi....Took Drake to Bruno's Bath House for a few hours of doggy playtime with his friends. He came home and passed out on the floor. Not bad for $2.00.
During my 2 hours of free time...I TRIED to get the truck inspected. To bad for having insurance in another state because you are military. Darn. Now I have to go another day. I think there should be a clause for that.
Now to decide what to do next....beach with Drake and off to a movie with the girls.

Well, he's off to New River, North Carolina tomorrow on his cross country in the T44. He will be flying, leaving on Saturday morning and arriving back sometime on Monday. I can't wait for him to be through this next phase of flight training. The count down begins. Only 3 weeks from today and he will have "gold wings". Super Proud.

Logan Lee Pickens...count down

Our little man

Something is missing right now....

Wishing Aaron was home. It's 10:30 pm and he is still flying. So proud....such a hard worker. I can't wait for flight school to be over for a little while. We need a vaca.
