Exciting news!

I have the best news! I get to go HOME! woot! I talked to Tyler about it and he agrees that going home and seeing my friends and family would be good for me. I am planning on coming home in Jan after the holidays. I am sooo excited! My flight will be an all day occurrence but well worth it.

Ok now that I got that out of my system... a few other things have happenend since last post. Missy got spayed on the 5th, which is good but I felt so sorry for her :( She walked like a little drunk. She came home at 12:30p and didn't wake up until 9p! She was, for lack of a better word, pathetic. But all is well now and she is back to her old self :)

We got the door fixed finally! It was letting in a severe draft for about 2 weeks before anyone came out to fix it. Needless to say I was definitely drinking lots of hot cocoa and coffee during those rough 2 weeks. Tyler was sweet enough to try and bring home wood for us to burn in our awesome fireplace, but it was wet cedar ;) I told him I couldn't burn it because #1 it's cedar and sparks waayyy too much and could cause a fire and #2 it's wet. But it was the thought that counted.

On November 10, Tyler, Lt. Grines, Cpt. Grines, Elizabeth and I all participated in the 10k walk for breast cancer awareness. Before the walk Tyler and I ate breakfast at Charley's and got some fuel to get started! It was 6.2 miles but I did it and felt great in the end. I did however forget my sim card for my camera. That made me really irritated. But when I got home I took a pic of me and my metal.

Today is baking day! Tomorrow is the company Thanksgiving and I was asked to participate so I'm making 2 apple butter pumpkin pies, a spiral ham and 2 green bean casseroles! The apple butter pumpkin pie is new so here's hoping! but can you really go wrong with apple butter??? Hopefully we have a nice turn out and it actually gets started ON TIME! Oh how I love the Army. So I guess that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
