Monday Random Thoughts

What a perfect day it is here today. The sun is shining, the air is a crisp 72 degrees and it feels wonderful! I wish it could feel this way here all the time!

The rest of my weekend was good. Yesterday was a lazy day for us, although I did clean on the house some and also get some cardio in at the gym. Sean made hamburgers and french fries last night complete with Swiss cheese and mushrooms on my burger. I have to brag and say my husband can cook like no man I've ever known. He just improvises on so many things and they all turn out delicious. There have only been one or two times where something he cooked wasn't perfect. He actually did all the cooking this weekend. The only things I made were Spinach Dip and some delicious chocolate chip cookies courtesy of Andrea. Seriously the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made and I've been making cookies for a long time.

So, I have this weird thought process I noticed when I walked down to the post office a few minutes ago. I hate walking across crosswalks or crossing the street when I have to deal with traffic (light or heavy). I get extremely paranoid if I have to walk in front of a car because I feel as if they are critiquing me as I walk in front of them. How crazy is that? I've had this paranoia since I was in middle school and it still hasn't stopped. Does anyone else experience that? Or am I the only weirdo out there?

Tonight is my first bellydancing class at the gym on-post. I'm so excited! I think it's going to be fun and hopefully I'll have some awesome abs in no time. I'll make sure to report tomorrow on how the class goes tonight.

As far as our upcoming PCS is going everything seems to be going according to schedule. I need to go get my no-fee passport and Sean is going this week to schedule a brief with transportation on all the things we need to do and also so we can get signed up for packing, etc. We also got the stuff to study for our International Drivers' licenses. There's a lot of signs and a booklet to look over, but I think I should do pretty well. I don't plan on driving that much while we are in Europe, but I want to be able to just in case I want to. I'm getting so excited though! I've been looking over the 3+ travel guides I have for Europe and I'm really thinking about ordering some of Samantha Brown's Passport to Europe DVD's. Does anyone have those? I love the show, so I'm thinking they might be good to have.

Hope everyone has a good Monday!

Ohhh, today is a beautiful day in my part of the good ole USA, as well. Let's enjoy the cool breeze and sunshine before it escapes us and the bitter winter sets in!!

THough - I am kind of looking forward to that. I LOVE WINTER.

I know exactly how you feel about crossing streets. I will act like I'm not crossing (especially in front of stores) just so that a car doesn't have to stop for me. I'd rather wait than have someone feel that they have to stop to let me cross. It's completely irrational, I know.

I am so glad it feels like fall for even a few days. I found out today that if I had had my apartment on the first floor I wouldn't have a home. Just a half mile up the road there are apartments and businesses without roofs. I don't mean missing shingles either. And there are military folk handing out MREs... weird
