A very wordy Wednesday

I'm alone at the office today. Well...sort of. The only other person here is my boss and since he resides for most of the day in his office upstairs it seems as if I'm here by myself. That's ok though. I have a couple of things to work on and when I'm not working on that it gives me time to blog and search the Interent to my heart's content and I'm ok with that.

Military life is good right now for Sean and I. He got word a few weeks ago that he should be going before the board soon for a promotion and we are both excited about that. I'm very proud of him to say the least. Despite rumors of a possible deployment, we are still moving ahead on planning on PCSing from here in January. I don't put much stock in rumors, especially about deployments. As Sean has been told several times since I met him that he will be deployed and nothing has happened. So...until I get offical word, I'm not worrying about it.

I met and took a walk with a new acquaintance yesterday. Her husband is deployed from Ft. Polk and she has been living in North Carolina, but moved back here this past week. We decided to take a walk last night, which Boomer loved, and had a good time talking about our lives. She seems nice, so who knows? I might have met someone else I'm actually compatible with here. No easy feat so far, I assure you. I don't mean to come off sounding snobby with that statement at all. It just seems that a lot of the women I've met are younger than me and still in that party phase. As in, going out every weekend and drinking while their husband is deployed phase. I don't mind a night out every once in awhile, but partying is a part of my past and I don't see myself picking that up ever again.

It's been storming almost everyday in the afternoons here lately. Almost reminds me of Florida and the trips to Walt Disney World when it would storm inevitably during the afternoon to later give way to sunshine. What's weird down here though is they have these warnings about tropical funnels. I guess they are similar to tornadoes, but they never touch ground? Louisiana has some unusual things about it. Trust me. I still love it though, crazy humidity and all. My hair hasn't looked right since I've been here, even equipped with what I thought was a decent straightner. Guess it's time to invest in a Chi.

We've had stormy afternoons that give way to beautiful sunsets here in New Mexico. I love it!

I hope you have found a great new friend! It is hard to find friends - true friends - as the years go on.

Awesome news for Sean! I hope he blows the board away!

Ah, I am dying for a Chi!!!

And I totally know what you mean about the storms. I went to the Univ. of Florida for undergrad, and we had those storms every day during the summer. They blew away a lot of the humidity and ALWAYS reminded me of Disney World, as well :)

I have a Chi and I love it!!! It works great and is so worth the money.
I wouldn't put much stock into the deployment rumors. They hardly ever pan out to anything.

what is a chi?

I hear you on the humidity induced crazy hair.

We lived in P'cola Florida for a while and the thunderstorms were amazing!
