I'm not really sure what I want to share tonight, I have a little bit of what I have heard it called as 'blog fodder' right now. I could easily tell you about how Ruby got horribly sick the last 36 hours, landed us in the vet this morning, and I got very little sleep last night. One vet bill, dry cleaning bill, a puppy who got sick all over my car on our 3 hour road trip home today, and we are all better. But really, that is all in the past. Last night solidified the fact that I'm OK with waiting for babies a little bit longer. :)

I thought I would fill you in on a little bit about me.. just so we can all be on the same page.

-I love to clean. It gives me a sense of normalcy.
-I could eat donuts, cheeseburgers, and pizza everyday. I eat at least one of the three every week.
-I enjoy working out. I can be slightly neurotic about it.
-I thrive on a schedule.
-I have a fear that my house will burn down when I am the last person to leave it. Crazy, I know. I am scared I will be the person to leave something on and I will come home and my house will be ashes.
-I am very close to my family. Very close. My mom and my cousin are my best friends.
-I would be a full time student forever if I got paid for it. I love going to class and learning new things. I love being on a college campus. I can't wait to go back for my Master's.
-I love the holidays. The time from Thanksgiving to Christmas is my favorite time of year but I wish I lived somewhere that had a Fall season because I bet Fall would be my favorite time of year if it wasn't 85 degrees during 'fall' here. :) I would love to live somewhere with 4 complete seasons!
-I love to walk around a room and straiten things. If something looks out of place, --I will 'straiten' it. If a picture frame isn't strait or a pencil is crooked on a desk, I will fix it. I have mild OCD.
-I enjoy it when someone massages my scalp or plays with my hair. Best. Feeling. Ever.
-I'm terrified of teaching in the Fall. Terrified.

That's a little about me.. anything about y'all that is random that makes you different from the rest of us?

Be Still My Heart

As I was surfing the guide last night I saw this was on.

Dirty Dancing Pictures, Images and Photos

Who doesn't love Dirty Dancing? (besides my husband) I have loved this movie for years. I saw it on the big screen 3 years ago when they did an anniversary special, we waited in the theatre when the power went out for over an hour and tornadoes were going on just to see some Johnny and Baby just to have it canceled. Fits were thrown when the manager said he wasn't 'sure' they would be able to show it the next day due to having to send the movie back to the production company. After dealing with 10 angry women, he decided to 'pull some strings' and let us come back the following night.

'Nobody puts Baby in a corner'

'Dirty Dancing I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life, the way I feel when I'm with you.'

I was just so happy to lie on the couch and watch this last night.

Imagine my surprise when I wake up and THIS was on this morning!

Grease Pictures, Images and Photos

I don't know who is cuter, Sandy and Danny or Johnny and Baby.. it really is a tough one!

The icing on the cake would have been if THIS would be wrapping up their movie extravaganza..

'I got no place else to go!! I got no place else to go!'

'No sir. You can kick me outta here, but I ain't quitting.'

My mom and I can quote these movies 'til we are blue in the face. Sometimes we will just text each other random quotes back and forth, it always makes me laugh.

Anyone else have a great older favorite that they never get tired of?

Whole 'Lotta Nothin'!

I wish I could say my absence was because something eventful and exciting has happened in my life, but sadly it's because I have done nothing. Mr. G has been TDY for the last two weeks and that means I have been one lonely wife, as in I sit and do nothing all. day. long. I can't wait to start working again. Im literally counting the days.

I literally was in a fowl mood because of my lack of human interaction. My behind went flat from sitting on it for so long. I can only clean and jog around the neighborhood so many times per day.

I have a confession to make. This was the first time I have been by myself for more than 2 days before. How you may wonder.. with 2 deployments, schools and TDY's under our belts? School and scheduling have made it to where I have always been able to go home for his 'vacations'. Im sure I could have this time but with a new puppy and another dog and my mother having 2 dogs of her own, it would have been a full on circus and I wasn't up for that. I also wanted to know I could brave being home alone, to be honest. I was terrified and as soon as I got used to it, of course his school was complete. Go figure.

Today is a lazy Sunday full of catching up on household chores and little things that I need help on since its a 2 man job. :) I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend.

It's The Small Things..

It is the small things that make me giddy. No really. I can only imagine what my neighbors thought last night if they heard me praising Ruby with so much excitement in my voice, you would have thought I had won the lottery, all because she went to the restroom on the puppy pad. Too bad it was a one time deal.

Another thing that makes me happy, getting my teacher badge. A piece of plastic with my name on it. I want to wear it around the house when I clean, I want to grocery shop in it, I want to wear it to the mailbox but sadly, I will have to wait to wear it.

The last thing that makes me happy, I get to call myself a teacher. I will teach children. Some people think its not a big deal and just anybody can do it but after my first day in 1st grade last year I felt as if I was herding cats and I had no idea if I could ever teach. I was terrified. I still am but I'm also full of excitement. I am a teacher, I honestly can't stop saying it. I know I sound silly but this is my blog, I can do it. :)

I just feel so blessed right now. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

What's That You Hear?

Oh.. It would be a huge sigh of relief. I interviewed this morning for a elementary teaching position and HR called be 4 hrs later and offered me the job. I really liked this school, I loved them at the job fair, they were my number one pick (not that I was going to be picky), and when I was called for an interview Friday, I was ecstatic.

I was nervous when I walked out of my interview and saw 2 other women sitting there, kinda unnerving but I literally jumped through the roof when I got the call.

Im ecstatic, anxious, nervous, terrified, excited, the list could go on. I literally can't wait to get into my classroom and go nuts and start working with my team.

In other news, does anybody have any good potty training tips for puppies? Im going nuts over here.. Ruby isn't quite grasping the concept.

New Addition to The Family

There are no longer three members of the G family, now we have 4.

This is Ruby.

She is a cocker spaniel/chihuahua and is so full of spunk, she will definitely keep me on my toes!

Hero is still warming up to her but I know they will be best friends in no time.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and remembered all those that we have lost and thanked those that have served past and present. A local radio station in Dallas was having commercial breaks every 5-10 minutes on Sunday and the air would get silent and they would name a couple of names of fallen service members and where in the metroplex they were from followed by a patriotic song. It was very moving, I listened to it all day as we had the radio on all day on Sunday. I am very proud of our military and am very proud to be a military wife.
