Awe if that song doesn't just say it all....Man this life we live has SO many ups and downs yet it really is a beautiful life.
Today has really been one of those kinda days. That lifts your spirit because you have such a great time and your on top of the world but also keeps you right there on earth with humbling things that are so out of your control.
Reaction to action mode. This bewilders me. Some people have the craziest reaction time from when something happens and stepping up and taking control where they need to. Like for instance I saw a group of three men step up almost instantly in a place where fear and tragedy were running wild. There was a 5 car pile up on one of the roads near base, and within I'd say 3 mins these mean were out there. They stepped up and starting conducting traffic around the wreck that had demobilized the entire flow as it covered both lanes. And due to their amazing ability to go from reacting to what just happened and putting into action the next step to prevent further problems.
Another situation like this was told to me today also from my parents. They saw a car go over a guard rail in the mountains and roll down to the river below. And apparently it only took a few seconds for my dad to pull the car over, jump out of the vehicle and be storming down the embankment to help in anyway he could. Its amazing that people just have that reaction time that makes all the difference.
Now for the more fun part of the day. The theme for my day was pirates obsessive lol. For those of you who didn't know the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie is being filmed right now in multiple locations around the island. And my friend and I were able to get pretty close and snap a few photos of the Black Pearl that is now Queen Anne's Revenge for this new film!! Than we drove to the other side of the island and tried to catch some of the stars but the security there was kinda rude and not very friendly so we ended up just driving by the camera's and stuff a few times. But we really wanna go to the next place they are filming so hopefully times workout and we can make it :D
The Husband is starting to get on a working routine. He is gonna be working nights so hopefully that will make it so we are able to talk easier. Although the Internet on his Fob is very shitty and thus he isn't going to waste the money on purchasing it so we are only talking every 3 days or so and just on facebook when he is able to make it to the MWR. This makes it a little harder but I understand that the situation isn't gonna be exactly ideal and we are gonna make it work for us!! I cant wait until he gets my first package!
Prayers going out to the wife who was in the car that rolled down the river, as she deals with the hard time of her husband passing, prayers with all the people who were involved in the car accident, Prayers with Julie as she fights through the sickness of her pregnancy, and prayers to everyone else who is having a hard time may gods eyes be watching you carefully!

Wow over a week down, Tuesday has already came and went!!!
I have been trying to keep myself very busy and its amazing how well that keeps your mind off of things. I want people to know that although I seem to be strong that is not because I have no emotions nor im not hurting cuz I do but I realize that there is no point in getting myself worked up cuz he's still gonna be gone. And he is gone for a good reason so you just gotta suck it up and go.
So I had made a budget with Dustin before he left, we forgot to calculate in his Care packages so I ended up spending quite a bit and havent even paid for postage yet...Should be interesting thats for sure...I hope he can accept my apology cuz next pay check I wont be spend Near as much.
Well the 4th of July is quite a shindig here on post, with games, food, entertainment, drawings, and plenty of sun to go around. Prices ran a little high tho so I decided not to stick around too much. Than a group of us headed over to Wainae to Celebrate and bbq!! Fun was had by all tho the firework show wasnt very impressive.
Than Monday my life got a little bit more entertaining to say the least. I was on my way to pick up my brother in law and his wife from the airport. And on my way to my car my neighbors dog decided it wanted to see how I tasted. Ripped my shorts, punctured my leg in 2 spots and left one helluva bruise around it. So I have spent my fair share of time at the ACC and with the Mp's getting the report filed. Has kept me on my toes all day.
Also got Pedicures with my friends today which was by far what I needed been a stressful week already and its only tuesday. Oh and Huck has Roll over down good now :D
I miss Dustin cant wait til he has better internet and can talk to me fore more than 20 mins should be soon!!!

Busy Busy Busy! That's what I wanted this first few days and boy oh boy has that been what I got!!! And it is indeed a great thing and I hope to keep this pace up through out the whole time! I love helping out my friends!! And we have had some good story telling time lately! Besides Lack of sleep all has been going well! Was even excited to finally get my first call from Dustin which was totally a day maker!!
The next few days are alot more low key just pretty much me time, I'm gonna get my stuff together for Dustin's care package, and catch up on the zzz's Ive been missing out on. Also plan to do some grocery shopping, and cleaning!! But mostly alot of time will be spent with my little battle buddy trying to get him on a routine so that we can go the ENTIRE year with out any accidents. He has only peed in the house 1 time since Dustin left and that's because, the people were painting the building right by our door so we couldn't leave. And well he couldn't hold it in.
Not alot been going on just keeping everyone updated...Dustin is safe but busy so wont be online much for a while and only gets 20 mins worth of phone calls a day. No one knows his mailing address yet, but when I know I'll let you know!!
P.s to all my army wives I LOVE YOU!!!!
