Moving Right Along

Another week has come and gone, time seems to be sailing right along. Which frankly is fine by me because I've got lots to look forward to in the coming weeks. Not to mention we are over half way through this cycle. It seems to be going by faster than the last one, which is always nice. (since I said that, the rest of it will prob. go slow lol) Work hasn't been to bad I suppose, I finally have a 2nd staff in the afternoons. Sadly though it doesn't help much because she can't be left by herself with the children so I'm still kinda stuck. This week I've had 4 kids out sick and that doesn't include the ones I have still coming that are sick. Seems as if everyone has the runny noes and cough going around. Maybe its due to the weather change here lately. Speaking of its been in the mid 80's ALL week and I'm loving it so much. If I could bottle this weather up and keep it around all the time we'd be doing great. Sadly I'm not holding my breath because I'm sure it wont last long. I have a feeling its going to be a awfully cold winter here in the South. I think I'm going to start stocking up on winter close now that way when the time comes I'm fully prepared. Speaking of clothes I did a bit of shoe shopping last Sunday. I replaced my broken long gone flip flops. They finally opened the Dick's Sporting Goods store here and they had a large selection to chose from. They aren't as comfy as my old ones yet but I'm sure that's just because I have to break them in some first. 
From here we went to Academy because the hubbs wanted to look at guns, HELLO nothing new there. I took this opportunity to get another new pair of shoes. (they didn't have any I liked at Dicks) Last week at zumba I wore my running shoes and I could tell a big difference from the week before when I wore my regular work out shoes. Sadly those have seen better days, I'm holding on to them though for a Mud Run I'm doing in a few weeks. Any how I found these babies below and they just so happen to be on sale. I wanted something funky and bright but of course something with good support. There were others that I liked but I couldn't bring myself to pay almost $150+ for zumba shoes. I'd rather put it towards running shoes. 
~DAY 331~

Monday after work I talked the hubbs in to going to test drive a car that we stopped and looked at the day before. (it didn't take much convincing him) Knowing good and well we weren't going to get it, it was kinda just for sh*ts and giggles. I really liked the way it drove, it reminded me a lot of the Mazda RX8 I had before the Challey. Although it would have been a major down grade because it lacked a lot of features that my Challey does have, it was a really clean, fun car. Small but fun. I would have been one of a thousand to own one, but it still wasn't enough for me to part with my baby. 

In case you were wondering it's a Toyota Scion FRS, its a car that Subaru and Toyota went in together and built. 
~DAY 332~
Its been a busy past week & a half for the hubbs, he's going through EIB training. This is the 2nd time for him and we I have been stressing about it. I hope to goodness he makes it. He seems to be completely confident about it but still doesn't mean I wont worry. He didn't pass in Hawaii when he took the test because his grader on his run messed up his time. It was a very bitter sweet day. I would hate to see him come this far again and not make it. The past 2 or 3 days have been day and night land nav. training. He HATES land nav. He doesn't have a problem doing it just not something he totally enjoys. They have to find 2 of the 3 markers in a certain amount of time, in both day and night. He didn't get home this evening till 11pm and was completely exhausted. This is a typical day he comes home strips his uniform and it all goes on the kitchen counter. Then up to bed we went. Next week is TESTING all week, there are different events each day. The last thing is a 12 mile road march on Friday morning followed by the ceremony. If your the praying type could you please say a extra pray for the hubbs and all the other soldiers that will be testing next week. Not only that they all pass but that no one gets injured, falls out and for their safety. (and that I can find a sub for Friday morning so that I can attend the ceremony.)
~DAY 333~
Skip ahead from Tuesday to Friday. Nothing overly exciting happened Wednesday or Thursday, the hubbs had night land nav training again Wed. night and Thursday night I babysat after work.  Friday we found our selves back at the dealership this time test driving a Toyota Taco. Its not a bad little truck I suppose but my first love for a truck will always be the 2010 Dodge 4*4 fully loaded Ram that we had in Hawaii. I opened the back of the Subaru to get something out of it when we were at the dealer and found this (below right picture). I asked the hubbs what the heck he was doing with it in his car and thats when he informed me it was fake and called a rubber ducky. I replied with no really why do you have it, still thinking it was real. Long conversation later, he's been using it during land nav. training. Now its in the back of my car, by that's going to be fun to explain if I get randomly selected at the gate for inspection. 

~DAY 336~

Its been a pretty good week for the most part, there's been a lot going on and I've been pretty busy. Hints the reason I'm a teeny tinny bit behind on my blogging but that's alright because its my blog and I can do that, right?! We've got a pretty chill weekend ahead of us, I'm not babysitting at all which I'm excited about and the hubbs only has to go in Saturday morning for compatives training with the privates. I'm going out there to take pictures for our families so keep a eye out for those. Some time tomorrow. (hopefully) 

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, I'm looking forward to enjoying the wonderful weather we are suppose to have!!!!
