Here is how I measure a year...
In car payments (12)
In paychecks (24)
In weeks (52)
In pedicures (approx. 10)
In hair cuts (4)
Anyway...the time just keeps on ticking. Sometimes faster than other times. Last week was super busy...I taught dance, baked 3 cakes, baked and decorated 81 cookies, subbed at Ditto and completed all the other craft fair tasks that my Mom asked me to do. The craft fair was a huge success!!!! I am a proud owner of some new jewelry, a shirt and a beautiful cross for my wall.
This week has been more low key, but it is still going quickly. I don't have any cakes or sub jobs lined up yet, but somehow, I am sure I will fill my days. Mark has R&R coming up in less than 2 weeks now! How exciting is that!!!!!!! Before I say this...please know that I am more than thrilled to get 14 days with Mark. It is better than 0, but it is somewhat bittersweet. I'm in my little routine...dance, sleep, eat, dance, eat, sleep, sub, bake, shop...and then I get to have Mark in person for 14 days and then somehow I have to go back to the day to day stuff. 2 weeks just isn't long enough!!!!!! I wish that his leave could be later in the year to split up the time more evenly, but I will take what I can get....happily!
We now have our DC trip planned and booked!!!!!! Can't wait!!!! Who knows...maybe this year our Christmas card pic will be in front of the White House? Also, Mark will be home for our 2nd Anniversary! We are going to stay at the Worthington, which is where we stayed on our wedding night...pretty cool!!!! And lastly, he is going to join in on the 1/2 Marathon fun! I'm sure that the 2 weeks will go way to fast, but they will be packed with fun and love and awesome memories.
