I'm back to blogging at the request of so many. Ok, alright already...my butt is UP out of the bed and back to work, grrrrrrrrrr... Do y'all realize how hard it was for me to get up at 5:00 am after being off for almost 2 weeks??? I have got sooooo much to catch up on that it's not even funny. This is going to be a really hectic month for me. We have an audit coming up at the end of the month and I've got paperwork running out of my nose....

So what did I get for Christmas... I got a beautiful diamond circle necklace, pajamas, an air popcorn popper, good smelly bath stuff, a shower massager and perfume from Victoria's Secret. Nothing much... ::wink

As you can see, I've put up a bar counting down how much time Matt has left at home. Please keep us in your prayers. Just thinking about it, I get this HUGE lump in my throat. I know this is what he is wanting to do and y'all know that I'm supporitng him 110%... but I'm still his mother and it's my first born leaving home and... well y'all get it.

Remember to keep praying for our troops overseas that they safely come home soon.

And for my Worldless Wednesday:

Proudly Brought to You by Dixie 8:49 AM

I loooove Maxine. Wanna be just like her when I decide to grow up. Dix, my heart goes out to you. I've seen so many of my students off to Afghanistan and other hotspots, and it's always a wrench to my heart. And these are just former students! You have a lot to be proud of, girl. Remember that when things get really shaky. Big hug.

I didn't KNOW Victoria's Secret MADE shower massagers. Makes sense though.

You know my nephew and his Momma are always in my thoughts.

That is precisely how I felt today when I woke up and realized that my vacation had ended & I had to drag my dead backside into my office for the first time since December 14.


Blogger SGT DUB said ... (1/04/2007 10:36 AM) :

Blogger Angell said ... (1/04/2007 12:23 PM) : 

I got - ahem - a massager too, but I guess it doesn't HAVE to be exclusive to the shower....

*laughs at Vinny cuz he knows us SP women SO WELL....*
