Leaving. Again.

I’m an only child.

And my Dad stayed at home with me while my Mom worked.

Back then (ugh, I feel old when I say that) not many fathers stayed at home. I remember I’d be at school and people would find it odd to know that my Dad was at home with me. I remember thinking it was odd that a mother was home. I just always thought that Dads being home was how it was.

I get to see my parents tomorrow. Mom retired as a Colonel in Texas and they live in a nice home with a backyard that reminds me of a Disney movie. I say this because they’ve trained squirrels to take a peanut from their hands. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Mom also love plants (ironic, since I don’t) and they grow all over the place in her yard.

We’re staying there because we always go to the nearby beach for a mini family reunion. It’s also a way for Tom to say goodbye before he goes.

Have good thoughts that our plane makes it to Texas safely.

And that the kids sleep during the flight so I can read my latest Jennifer Weiner book.

If I don't always get to update my blog, I do update my Facebook. I'm there under Princess543@yahoo.com. Rumor has it that the place we're staying at while at the beach has no Wifi.

Cue scary music.

  2. I hope you're all having fun!! No Wifi...WTF??

    I was just just doing some last minute research on the house we're renting in Tahoe for next week and I nearly panicked when it said there was no Wi-Fi. But hubby (aka computer nerd in the family) said he could run some kind of cable to my laptop so I could get online. Totally old school but I'll take it!

    Can't wait to hear about your trip!

    On a different note - reallY? Squirrels take nuts out of their hands? I can't handle how adorable that sounds - it seems like a vlog is in order!

  19. Amber, enjoy your family and it'll all be fun. That Tom is leaving is not fun, but the time will pass. It's what they do, as Alex reminded me before every deployment. (Not liking it was what I did.) Enjoy yourselves and pack Natalie her cutest stuff!
