Mainland in a few days...

That's right....I'll be back on the mainland in a few days. I leave my tiny island home on Thursday afternoon (Hawaii time) and arrive in the mainland early in the morning on Friday. I know I will be exhausted, but hopefully I'll be able to sleep on the plane. I have so much to get done this week before I leave. Thank goodness for a fellow military wife (and great friend) lending me a laptop bag & a portable DVD player. I got rid of my laptop bag before I moved here, so I don't own one anymore. I had intended to get a new one, but borrowing one helps me save a little money for the time being.

Yesterday, I had a photo shoot for some pictures I had taken for Avery. They are his anniversary present. We went out last night for a belated anniversary dinner. It was really nice. :-)

Now I am off to get a pedicure and an eyebrow wax done. My fingernails have been awful lately and are all short, so I'm not bothering to get them done.

New Computer and Anniversary

I write this evening from my new laptop. I've now had this computer 24 hours and am still not sure what I think of it. My old laptop crashed completely on Monday evening, sending me into a panic and a slew of tears. Nothing was able to be salvaged off of my lovely little Dell. Thus, I got an HP last evening. As silly as it sounds, I miss my Dell. I really liked that laptop. It was the first laptop I ever bought and it was with me for 4 years. I did a lot with it and I honestly miss it. Now I am sure I will get used to this HP and grow to love it too, but this is not the love at first sight that I had with that Dell.

My first wedding anniversary is a week from tomorrow. In some respects I am just in awe of how this past year has been. My husband and I have grown so much together, but also I've grown so much. The person I've become since adding the title of wife is the best person I've ever known myself to be and I really believe I will only get better. I am proud of who I am now and I haven't felt proud of myself in this way for quite a long time.

Tonight I sit writing this blog and my husband is playing a video game that I bought him and I love this time with him. Yeah, we're not directly interacting, but we don't need to and I love that about us.
