Cob Webs!!!!

Wow, there sure are alot of cob webs on this blog!! I am here for the first time since the move which happened 5 months ago now trying to get things up and running again! I am just amazed at how much time has gone by since the last time I posted!! Well, we are here on Long Island and finally all unpacked and starting to make our new home a place where we can feel at home. That is the part that is taking me the longest (feeling at home here). I miss everyone back in the midwest so much that I have gone through a very dark period in my life with this move. I wish I could say that after 23 years in this military life with my hubby that moving was a piece of cake and that we could do it without any saddness but that just is not the case! I know alot of people tend to think that the life of a military spouse is always full of new exciting adventures and making new friends, etc.. But, I am here to tell you that it is not all that all the time! Lol!! I don't know if it is my age or this specific time in my life or all the wonderful people that have come in to my life during our last port of call that has made this the hardest one ever for me or what. Maybe I am on an extremely long pms haul or some sort of mental break down or ughh....... something just isn't the same this time!! I sat down today and looked at the calendar on my desk just stunned! So much time has passed and I have nothing to show for it, no great accomplishments, nothing...nada...zilch. Life has swallowed me whole! So, needless to say today is the "wake up and smell the roses (or coffee! lol!)" day for me!! Today is the day that I am grabbing life by the horns again, putting on my high heels, filling my tool belt with the neccesities and taking a ride back on the journey bus to MY LIFE! (I can almost just barely hear the crowd cheering "you can do it"!) I am no longer in stand still mode I am now in "full speed ahead baby" mode!! So, if you are one of my many awesome friends who has emailed me and not heard back from me I am here to officially tell you that I do not have any excuses to give you, but, I can tell you that soon my friend, real soon, I will be in touch some way some how!! I am not dead I just fell off the earth for a couple of spins and now I am back!! So, on that note, since I have already bored you to death with my troubles such as they may be, I will now leave you with a pic of a little something that I made for a little something I am that vague enough for ya! Lol!! Next post will have more pics and some deets on what I am talking about! As always...Thanks for stoppin' in! You truly mean the world to me!!, Tracy
