Finally Home

I'm not updating this as often as i thought i would. Alabama is now our official home! We found a house in a small town not far from the gates of Ft Rucker. I love the neighborhood! I'm still in the process of making this house a home. Brooklyn is getting used to being so far away from family. Not that she likes it, but she understands more now.
We already drove back to Missouri once to surprise my mom. I didn't tell anybody that Brooklyn and I were coming home. I even talked to mom a couple of times on the drive home and she thought we were shopping. It was about 10 when we finally made it to the house and with the help of my youngest sister, we snuck in and went to sleep in her room. The next morning mom still had no idea we were in my sisters bed, so she yelled for mom to come in the room. After a few minutes of waiting anxiously, mom opened the door and just stood there for a while trying to figure out who we were. Then she started hollering and said am i dreaming? what is going on? She couldn't believe it, i'm glad we actually pulled that off. It was a nice surprise.
Josh bought a new boat while Brooklyn and I were visiting back home. We shouldn't leave him home alone for too long or this is what happens!

Home Alone

Brooklyn and I took Josh to the airport yesterday, he had to go to training for 2 weeks. I was fine until i told B to tell daddy bye and her eyes starting watering and her bottom lip stuck out. Last time he had to go somewhere it didn't really phase her. But this time she really didn't want him to leave. It was so sad! How am i going to do this in a month when he leaves for 5 weeks? I took her to Six Flags when we left the airport so that kinda got her mind off of things.
I need to figure out how to start the lawn mower tomorrow and mow, that way i don't have to do it after work this week. And i bought our groceries for the week...cereal, tuna, and salad. I'm glad Brooklyn likes eating healthy!

Change of plans....ALREADY!

I knew it wouldn't be that long before our plans got changed! They moved up the hubbys date to head to Alabama. Now it's the beginning of July, instead of the end.
The nice, loving husband that he is, decided to tell me this while i was taking care of the front office by myself with 3 people on hold and 2 patients standing in line waiting to make a follow up appointment with doc. That's when it finally hit me that we are actually moving (not the best time in the world to have a breakdown, but i couldn't control that!). Not just down the road, but almost 9 hours away from all of our family.
Am i ready to do this again? Can i take my 3 year old princess away from the rest of our family, after most of them have been seeing her on a regular basis? This will change our lives for sure. But i am doing it for my husband, it's his dream to fly apaches. That's what army wives do right? Silent Soldiers. Do whatever I can to help him along the way. It will break my heart to take Brooklyn away from her "best buddy". But that is a whole different story, I'm not ready to talk about it yet!
Maybe i should speed things up on the packing/throwing things away, huh?

Sweet Home Alabama?

I guess now would be a good time to start my blog. We are going to be facing a big change in the near future. My husband just found out yesterday that he will be going to Ft. Rucker, Alabama at the end of July to start the process of flight school! Brooklyn and I won't be moving down there with him until the end of August or beginning of September. At least that is what he is telling me for now. I've learned as an Army wife that nothing is for sure until it happens. So, my plan for now is to start going through everything we own and decide if we can live without it or not! I'm good about throwing things away or giving them away when we have to move. I like to buy new stuff when we get to our new home anyways!
