4 A Ride

It's was a rather nice day today...except for the part that my husband was/is on 24 hr. duty and he wasn't around. I decided to fill some time by taking a short ride with my best bud...we went about 57 miles. The weather was perfect...low 80's with a fair breeze (which is rare for Kansas). I just got back from bringing the husband his dinner...something I love to do...in fact, I love anything to do with my husband (in moderation). Come to think of it, I've only missed one dinner run while my hubby was on 24 hr. duty...and that was only because I was busy repainting the kitchen (urgh). I suppose I should be off to do some housework...I know I'd rather be sleeping, but we can't all have what we want.

Days Left in Kansas: 38

Time flys when you're having fun!!!

Half and Half :Ten things I will Miss or Not Miss about Kansas

1. Friends...all the wonderful people we have come in contact with...WOW!
                Joe and Raylene you're at the top of the list
2. The warm weather...longer riding seasons
3. Our first home together...the memories that we share in it...our first years of marriage
4. The polite people...they wave at you in their vehicles. Kansas folks really are nice people
5. I-70...for those of you in Michigan...this interstate is nothing like those in Michigan...folks in Michigan are really not the nicest drivers...they crowd around you and drive like nuts. I like I-70.

6. I will not miss Kansas allergies...they get worse each year
7. I will not miss having to drive to what seems opposite ends of the state to get to things.
8. I will not miss driving and spend our vacation time going back home. Though I love being with our family...I would love to have a real vacation...some place like Hawaii.
9. I will not miss Kansas winters...cold and boring...there's no snow to do anything in...it's rediculous
10. I will not miss the lack of trees...I like trees...oh...and Kansas wind...there's a reason why Dorthy was from Kansas

The Count Down

So, the time is coming upon us...our seperation from the military. HOW TERRIFYINGLY WONDERFUL!!!
There a sense of happiness in the household, seeing as how Michael won't be up for deployment again and the long hours he works hopefully will stop once the civilian world has a hold of him. But...all is not without a sense of sadness. I am so proud of Michael and his military career even if he isn't all the time. The military brings a sense of secruity...in an odd sort of way...finacial wise defiantly...emotionally stable??...once in a while if he's not ticked off because of the wacky, insanly ridiculous goings on at work...or in my case, because of deployment. The world seems so scary as we stand at the door of the civilan world. I'm looking at going to work full time as my sweet hubby is finally going to get some schooling in. That's a whole new chapter all together. We'll be seperated once again :( I am looking forward to him using his GI bill...he's earned it...boy has he :) So, let's see what the world will have in store for us in these next few weeks. OCTOBER!!! here we come.


How many days left in Kansas: 41 days left.
