Blogging Slacker

Whoa its been a while since i updated...Not a long time, but longer then usual i guess...

Nick has been home for almost 2 weeks already...Things are going good...Very laid back...Its nice to have time with him like that...He has about 2 more weeks, then has to go back to Hawaii for 3 weeks, then home for good! I am not looking foreward to being apart from him for 3 more weeks, but its for a good cause, so I am not dwelling on it either!..

We have spent alot of time just being home, and its been so great...We have gone to his parents house for dinner a few times...Thats always a pleasure...I love that his family gets together like that...A Sunday dinner can consist of around 17 people eating around a table...Its something that has taken some getting use to, and i often get a little overwhelmed by it still...I come from a family where i was an only child, and we only got together a few times a year, if even that...So being in a big group of people every Sunday can sometimes feel crowded, but im loving it...Everyone is so welcoming, and fun to be around...I definitely wouldnt change it...

We were on a hunt for a new radio for his car, but gave up...Every time we would go somewhere, we would hit a dead end...So yesterday he bought himself a recliner instead :) He has to go pick it up in a few hours...Its really nice...Brown leather, soft, comfy...You kind of just sink into it...i cant wait to snuggle up in it with a soft blanket, and a good book! Sounds like a grand idea!

Tonight the our parental units are coming for dinner...ive been busting butt on this house trying to get it all straightened up so that it looks nice...it seems to be a never ending battle for me..lol...but thats what happens when there are 6 people in our little home...He is attempting to smoke a pork roast on the grill...oh yeah, he got a grill...he is pretty excited about it...and its been so long since there has been grilled food in this house...its just so yummy! and he is doing a great job at it...It takes some of the pressure off of me to cook...

Saturday we are having a cookout...the house is gonna be soooo full of people...Im looking foreward to that...I havent had a party since before he left for Iraq...It will be nice to have people here...

The boys have really enjoyed having him home...They are excited to come home after school every day to see him here...even more excited to know that he wont be gone for long next time...then he dosnt have to be gone again...

I dont have alot of pictures...i wish i had been taking more, but i will get some taken...

My van died again...after putting a new alternator in it, and a new battery, it still isnt staying charged...It left us stranded yet again...i just dont know what to do about it...its a major stressor for me...but i will figure something out...

well thats it for now...i know i am totally forgetting a bunch, but i have to go finish cleaning, and getting ready for our dinner tonight...love and hugs
