Such A Long Time.... And BIG News.....

It has been a very long time since I last wrote. I have been reading other blogs and I kept telling myself that I need to update mine. Well, now is the time. A lot has happened in the past few months. Last we heard, I went to New York for a funeral. An update on that... One of my cousins out there seemed to be nice and trustworthy. Not the case. He tried to get all the money and estate for himself. What a skeez!! Anyway, another cousin took him to court and won. I just don't understand the money thing. It really does baffle me. Anyway, enough of that. For Christmas, Michael and I went down to Arizona. That was nice. It was nice to see the sun and be warm instead of the cold weather that December in Idaho brings. We celebrated our New Year by Michael going to bed at 11:30pm. Really, 30 minutes?? I stayed up and popped the bubbly!!! I had bought some sparkling apple cider and when it struck midnight, I cheered myself.... mostly because I stayed awake for the arrival of 2010!! In February, we celebrated our 2 year anniversary. I love the Olive Garden and since it's only a 5 minute drive from our house, that's where we went. I had decided in that week to show up at Olive Garden on that Friday and bring candles and flowers and have the hostess' decorate the table. I thought I was pretty clever. Michael had planned the same thing but on the day of. He went to Olive Garden and asked if he could bring flowers and have the hostess set it up. Neither one of us knew what the other had planned. It was such a big surprise for the both of us to see that we had both thought of the same idea. That little punk ruined my plans, but I loved it. I always need to top everyone, so I did something he wouldn't be able to top. Tuesday, February 2 is our actual anniversary. I went through Michael's phone the day before and called his boss to see if I could bring balloons, and stuffed animals, and candy to his work. It worked. I simply told Michael that I had a meeting at work that morning. I left earlier than usual and met up with his boss. I got a text a while later saying that Michael was surprised. He couldn't believe that I pulled it off. For Valentine's Day, we went to Olive Garden again, but didn't plan anything special. The big update is that Michael decided to join the Army National Guard. He signed up last Wednesday. I found out that he ships to basic training August 10. It's 5 months away, but it seems like it's so close. I fully support his decision, but I don't want him to be gone. I get scared being alone and that's how I'll be for about 12 weeks. It's all right though. I know that as long as I keep myself busy, I'll be fine.

Your tough! There is no way I would let Mark leave me for that long! Good luck!

It's going to be hard, but I think it will be worth it in the end. I guess we'll find out.
