Random Monday Thoughts...

We had a great weekend! We didn't do much, but that was the best part. Robert had duty on Saturday, so I took the kids to the community fall festival. We had a good time. Thompson begged to ride the horses, so I went and stood in line with him. I was holding Brycen because I didn't know if I could fit the double stroller everywhere. Well we stood in line for a good 20 minutes. As soon as it was our turn, Thompson ran away to the playground. Go figure! I was peeved to say the least. We went home after that and the whole walk to the car he kept saying how he wanted to ride the horse! I could have screamed! ;)

Last night we went to eat dinner and visit with Robert's brother and his family. Thompson and Haili (my neice) play so good together. They hardly fight, and if he gets worked up over anything she always says "Thompson calm down. Take a deep breath like this!" while she imitates breathing slowly in and out. She is too funny. Well what wasn't funny was when she came up to Shanna (sister-in-law) and I and said "Thompson cut my hair". I. Could. Have. Died.  Or maybe thrown up. Shanna grabs at her hair and pulls out clumps and clumps of hair. Thank God that that child has some thick curly hair. You could hardly tell that it wasn't even... just in some spots in the back. Oh, that boy was in DEEP trouble. Then later on he took something and whacked her across the face leaving a big black eye. Yep, not the proudest moment of my Mommy life.

We are STILL waiting on the housing decision. I talked to the lady Friday and she was just speaking with the Col. on his decision. He had to do some "research" and said he would get back with us by the end of the business day Monday. He wasn't kidding. It's past 2pm and still haven't heard anything. By the way, I hate waiting if you haven't caught on to that already. We don't even know if a house will be available when (if) we move. Nice. Again, patience is not my strong point.

I will hopefully have an update later today. But as we all have figured out, the military never goes at the speed you would like them too. And if something does move fast, it usually isn't for your benefit. ha!
