On this Fabulous Friday...

I mailed my last care package for this deployment!!!! We weren't given an official mail stop date, but I send him one a month and I'm confident that there won't be enough time to send him any more... if that makes sense? The lack of info is kinda frustrating. Because Brian switched units a few months ago I'm not in touch with our FRG, so I have to get everything from a higher level, so it is all really generic. With all the rumors, there is about a 60 day window of when he could be home, so I'm not planning for anything after I get back from my trip! But, I'd rather have homecoming rumors than extension rumors, so I'm content!

After running errands this morning, I came home and there was a flower truck in my drive. The surprise my husband ordered last week was a big bouquet of fat, pink roses, with a balloon and a card! He is just the best husband, sending flowers for no reason at all! The delivery guy also reminded me of my grandfather, so it was extra-nice.

Also, it is our sweet pup's 3rd birthday! Usually we celebrate with a can of wet food, but she is allergic (to everything.), it's just extra bones with peanut butter today. Later we're going to walk down the street with dogs at every house 'cause Coco loooooves when they all freak out! Haha! So silly that we celebrate so much, but she really is part of the family.

On the down side though, I've procrastinated wicked with my class work this week. I've got to finish up an assessment today, and will likely spend a chunk of time this weekend doing boring economics research for my paper. Ugh.

BUT - the Pats are playing Sunday, annnnnd it finally feels like fall here, kind of. So, I'm excited. I hope you all have a great weekend!
