PCS season is upon us and this time around it's our turn. (Anyone else find the humor in that acronym? PERMANENT Change of Station...It's anything but permanent!) Well we are down to just days before the packers come to remind us of just how much stuff we have (and how much crap we don't need). … Continue reading PCS – Permanent Change of Station
Before every PCS move (permanent change of station) there are stages of emotions we all go through, much like the way we mentally prepare for deployments and homecomings. Initially we receive the orders, the "penciled in" ones that are sort of for sure, but could change at anytime. This is where we don't really get … Continue reading Fair Winds and Following Seas….Again
Church services are not designed with little kids in mind. Nor are they designed with the parents of littles in mind. Yes, they have Sunday school and nurseries and cry rooms, but I'm talking about the timing. Services typically start from 9:30-10:30, then by the time it's over, kids are collected, we buckle up and … Continue reading Is It Over Yet? (Eric, you can come home now….)
Now that we have our internet up and the house is starting to look like a home as the cardboard sea subsides.....I had to take a moment to share our See You Laters and our Welcome Backs! Jayde was my neighbor in Hawaii - STRONG CHICKS!! So much fun to workout one last time where … Continue reading See You Laters and Welcome Back!
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it's not, you'll find an excuse. I love this saying so much as it applies to fitness, healthy eating, as well as just life in general for all the things we don't do but know we should. As we begin unpacking in our new home … Continue reading Make It Work
Not really even sure how I feel at this point..... I'm very excited to be with family and see old friends and check out our new place and all the fun that comes with moving, but my heart is breaking just a bit today as it is our last on Oahu. In a few hours … Continue reading Last Day
I'm feeling so blessed to have the opportunity to live in so many wonderful places and so grateful for the AMAZING people I have met along the way. I remember thinking not too long ago that I felt like this last year has been especially great and I was wishing I hadn't "wasted" so much … Continue reading Random Thoughts…
This was the crew - bright eyed and ready to run!! Today was my last event in Hawaii....and it's been a bittersweet day. I ran 8.1 miles at a pace of 10:11. Not too shabby considering less than a year ago I WALKED my first event and have no idea what my time was. I … Continue reading The Great Aloha Run….
I love The Biggest Loser, and while not a fan of this particular cast, I do love the theme of “No Excuses”. It really is mind over matter. You make a choice and you follow through. And each day is made up of a million little choices - workout or not? Eat crap or eat … Continue reading Excuses
Well the packers have come and packed up most all of the downstairs and will finish the entire house tomorrow!!! It is so amazing to me how fast they get it all done! Jake doesn't really understand why all the stuff is being put on the truck except that "it's going to Grandma and Grandpa's … Continue reading Packing Day is Here!
