Day 2: Your Favorite Movie...
Man, I Love movies too! Lol. I will have to say that Top gun is my all time Favorite.
Although, The Notebook is right there Nichlos Sparks ROCKS!
The Last song was an emotional roller coaster I didn't want to get off of! Even my daughter (6) was a wreck, I had to keep reminding her that it was a movie. But, that family's go through that all the time. I guess that would make me a die hard romantic... OR A sapp??? IDK but those are my top 3 I cant narrow it down any further.

Your Favorite song...
Well thats a hard question seeing as Music is my outlet! I love music, I can be anywhere going through anything and somehow music speaks to my soul! I get goosebumps and weird as it may sound sometimes, no matter how many times I hear it, I can go back to the moment I first heard it.
The Wind Beneath My Wings
This would have to be "THE" song, from as far back as I can remember.

Well its ALMOST payday!!! Geez these weeks seem to drag when its time to get paid! Oh well I got a little accomplished today. As much as I can do when we are out of completely everything, dish detergent, laundry det. etc. Just one of those days.
I am just now getting the hang of this whole blogger thing, and I am loving following and reading all the blogs. This is such a constructive way to relate with other mil-spouses! Something amazes me, when I can read other blogs and feel like I have been or can be in their same exact predicament! I love that we can be so connected yet so far apart at the same time!
Well 31 days until our big PCS yes, I said the dreaded letters. Ft. Campbell ready or not here we come. like I said before I am so overwhelmed because in a month we will move to a new place, we still have yet to find a place to live. I applied for base housing but in order to do it from another state we have to fax or scan DD forms, LES'S, and birth certificate's etc. I am sure you more seasoned Mil-Spouses know all about this process. There is something so uneasy about the unknown. I will overcome and accomplish what is necessary. Gee cant help but to think this would be so much easier if I had my husband to help me. I know that this AIT is almost over and we will be together for a while, before he Deploys... UGHHHH I hate that we have already been apart for a year (not completely apart) but we get a few months together before he is actually gone for a year! I love to hate or hate to love ARMY life! I know that by the sacrifices we make now will pay for the future we so badly want for our children, but at the same time its a double standard with me because now my daughter (6 years old) is telling me she wants to be a strong Army girl. I know right Bless her heart but correct me if I'm wrong... aren't we doing this so she wont have to? I mean don't get me wrong we LOVE our country, but I don't want to sacrifice my children too!!! Anyways, I am trying to deal with this all to the best of my ability... which is not adding up in my book... but I GOT THIS.
So, I started this bible study, I have done it once before... but our trials at that time were night and day to our current situation. Today I learned that as his wife I must Humbly, willingly, DIE to self. Though this may be painful it is completely necessary in order for my life to progress instead of regress.
Matthew 10:39 says;
"He who looses his-self for my sake will find his life."
This is my prayer...
give me a new clean heart and right spirit before you. Give me a new joyful, loving attitude and Lord when I start to doubt this remind me to SHUT UP , AND PRAY!
I have found that I often sabotage my own prayers but not praying from a "right" heart. If my heart harbors resentment and bitterness, than that is what will come from my mouth.My heart needs to be clean so my prayers for my husband aren't compromised. I need to pray in regards to how God See's it not how I think it should be!
"My sin separates me from him."
I am about to embark on many new journeys, I am proud of the life we are building for our children and ourselves. Although there are many unknowns, they merly exist because I am sure of the one thing that makes sense : He will never leave you or forsake you!
So Finally after a long treacherous five month wait, my hero, my husband is Phase 5 plus! HOOAH big time! This means more time as a family and less time for him in the barracks! We spent the most amazing weekend we have had since we moved here.
We spent quality time at the park hiking paths through the woods learning about the history and battles fought in the Newport News park. How, in this very park, there were soldiers defending the land they cherished as home! We had an absolute blast discovering, it was like a great adventure with Daddy. "Newport News park is one of the largest municipal parks in the country, this magnificent 8,000 acre-oasis is home to an incredible variety of native wildlife – deer, foxes, otter, raccoon and beaver, to name a few – all found in a natural setting of lush woodlands, flowering meadows and shimmering lakes!"
Sunday, we had our traditional day at York Town Beach.This has been a ritual from the first weekend we moved here. Religiously, every Sunday we pack up and spend the day there. I just adore this Lil battlefield beach placed in the middle of a historic town. Its so peaceful. The kids have sand time and mommy gets to get here tan on. lol Next weekend is fourth of July, and our 4-day, and we have yet to make plans... hmm what to do locally? Any ideas?
The countdown has begun, 32 days until Ft Campbell!! Yay, I am so excited about our life there, yet so overwhelmed. We found out that he is getting deployed in 5 months of us moving there. Praise God for the time we do have together and I will never take another second of us as a family for granted! I cant help but to worrier about all the things to come with this PCS! We have already made arrangements with transportation, and finance... but there are so many more kinks to work out. eg: housing paperwork to be faxed, packing, oh my! Now that my head is spinning and I know that I have to do most of this by myself there is much work to be done. No time to waste. Happy Monday all!
