Ok I cannot put off blogging another day. I have people calling me to see if I am still alive. However maybe I should stick to the no blog thing b/c they also said that they actually had to call me to see what I have been up to.The reason I have not blogged is because my brother was visiting for two weeks and we were to busy working on our tan. We went to the beach almost every day, and if we were not at the beach we were at the pool with a nice cold beverage in hand. This was my brother's first time to Hawaii and it was nice to be a tour guide again. It was great having my little bro around again. He is 6 years younger then I am and I had not seen him in 2 years so we had allot of catching up to do. He is such a sweet guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. He left her almost certain that he does not want 4 kids. I told him you do not start with 4 and you can try one out and work your way up from there. Lets just say there was never a dull, or quite moment around here. I am also very proud to say that he quite smoking while he was here! At $10 a pack in Canada he will be able to afford to visit more often. I never smoked but I here it can be a hard habit to break so cuddoes to Aaron for sticking to his commitment.
Benjamin update. Ben is doing well in Kuwait and is staying really busy with work and his masters degree. Being busy is helping his days go by faster, so that is good. We have however decided that we are definitly getting out of the Air Force after this tour. We have three years left in Hawaii and then it is good bye Air Force. This is just not the life for us. We are way to family oriented to be separated over and over again. The Air Force has done well for us but we are ready to settle down in one place. So that being said in 3 years we will be moving back to Texas (Tyler) and finally settle down for good. Ben's dad will be ready to retire around that time and he will take over his dad's company selling life insurance. Ben will be done with his MBA by then and we can welcome back the civilian life style.
Addison however is not doing quite so well. Saying goodbye to my brother Aaron broke her and the fact that her daddy has been gone for almost a month now came and slapped her on the side of the face. She clung around my brother's neck and begged him not to leave. She was crying hysterically and we practically had to pull her off, my heart breaking the whole time. That night I put her to bed and moments later while getting ready for bed myself I heard her screaming for her daddy in her bed begging for him to just grab her hand. I ran to see her and she was literally reaching out for her dad. My poor girl is going to need therapy soon if she has to say goodbye one more time. She is my emotional one and I just feel so bad for her. Time is just not going by fast enough and in a few weeks my dad is coming and we will have yet another departure at the airport. Keep her in your prayers.
Londyn had her 2 month Dr appt today. I cannot believe she is two months already. She had to have shots. That is another thing I usually make daddy do. I hate needles and it nearly kills me to see them stuck into my children. I make Ben be the bad guy and hold them while they get stuckl and then I come to their rescue after it is all done. I love being the good guy! Today however I had to be both the bad and the good guy, and I can vouch that the good guy position is much better.
My best friend from Canada and her husband are coming next week and I can't wait to see them again. She was my roommate and partner in crime in collage and we have some great and not so great memories from that time. Lets just say an ex-lax diet was not such a good idea. Anyway we are going to have a blast while they are here, and I can't wait.
Well that is about all that is new around here. Hopefully I will not be such a blog snob any more, but in my defense I don't exactly have allot of spare time with my four rugrats, I mean angels hanging from my every limb most of the day, and night.
