My life as of late

I've been meaning to write a blog article for awhile now. I've had so many different things that I've wanted to write about, but then when it comes to actually sitting down and doing it? Yeah... Doesn't happen. lol. I guess I just don't know what to say. So for now, I'll just give you a quick rundown of what I've been doing and maybe I'll be able to elaborate on them further if I can find the motivation.

In no particular order:
  • My wife deployed 
    • yeah... this sucks... I'm a temporary single parent. Figuring out childcare while working weekends can sometimes be a challenge. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do for the summer.
  • We went to Disneyland
    • Before Lindsay left on deployment, we took a late honeymoon to CA. We visited Lindsay's family in San Jose (I've never been), spent a day in Universal Studios and of course Harry Potter Land! and did four days at Disneyland. I love me some Disneyland. I think the more I go, the more obsessed with Disney I become. I may be planning a trip to Disneyworld.... HAHA
  • I'm getting promoted at work
    • Woohoo! In case you didn't know, I work for the Post Office as a Mail Carrier. I haven't been a career employee but as of May 27th, I will be! That means benefits, raises (finally!) and a set schedule. Super excited about this.
  •  I got a tattoo
    • Technically Lindsay and I got matching tattoos while in CA to celebrate the occasion.
  • I joined Kalo & Co
    • I'm officially a consultant for Kalo & Co and will be doing those crazy pearl parties that are all over Facebook. I honestly just joined because it looked fun but I'm hoping to make a little extra off it.
Well, that's all I can think of for now. I'll try and add additional articles and link to them later. Chat with you later!

Family retreat

Today is tuesday. It's around 6:00 pm and we're watching Greys Anatomy, lounging on the couch. We got back from a family retreat today. I skipped work for the last 3 days for it and pulled gideon out of school yesterday and today. I know it's  the army and plans change, but it was dissapointing. We were originally scheduled to go to Great Wolf Lodge and instead ended up at some random red lion hotel by the airport. That didn't even have a pool. So like I said. Disappointing. I don't want to sound unappreciative. I really am not. It was nice having three days with my family. Just us. But it sucked having nothing to do in our off time. But then again, it's the army. Things change. Sometimes they're disappointing.

Next week we're going to California. San Jose to visit Lindsay's family and then Burbank for Universal Studios, and last but not least, Anaheim for Disneyland. That trip will be make up for all of it. It's going to be an incredible trip. It'll be our late honeymoon trip and early deployment trip. Is it sad that I'm already wanting to plan to save money for Disney world when we get back? Haha. I can't wait.
