Dirty Little Secret: I LOVE CHRISTMAS DECOR!!!
My 25th birthday is in 3 weeks, and when I lived in my own apartment, I would decorate for Christmas as early as Nov 3!! When I lived with Ryan, he forbade me to decorate before Thanksgiving... I think I got away with 2 days prior to Turkey Day. David is kind enough to let me decorate whenever I want! (Plus, he's not here this year and I could do it anyway. I'm in charge of this beeyatch!)
The first care package went out on Wednesday Oct 10. I think I will make it a bi-weekly event, so the next one will go out Oct 24-ish? I might have to include some cute Halloween-themed goodies inside! I know the other wives are doing that. David likes candy a lot (probably too much) so I think I'll stay away from that. I'm also going to put in some delicious home-canned food! I'm going to do roast beef, green beans, apples, and potatoes. David is going to love it! :)
I think I'm going to host my family at my house for Thanksgiving this year. With Grandma's passing, we don't have much of a reason to say in Garner. I am really going to enjoy having my family here, too. I can't wait to show off my little one-stoplight town, take them to the beach, and have them meet my in-laws. I guess I should start planning this shizzzz pretty soon. My family doesn't do planning very well. They're kind of the go-with-the-flow, last-minute-decision kind of people.
I had an interview on Tuesday for Wounded Warrior Battalion on Camp Lejeune. I would love to have that job! My goodness, it sounded like an amazing opportunity. If I get the job, I'll be working by December. That would be awesome - especially to keep me busy while David's gone. I want to see Eden for New Year's Eve, though. I hope this job doesn't keep me from doing that...
I suppose I have to clean the house at some point. I'm getting a weird sensation to go do that now.
