7 weeks

i have not been back home for 7 weeks. which means i have been in clarksville, tn for 7 weeks straight. i didn't even realize how long i've been here until i was talking to my mom tonight. some may say "7 weeks, big deal" and to them i say "you are mean." ha, no really though - i have been living on my own and self-sufficient for 7 weeks. (aside from the fact i'm living on my husband's pay check haha. and don't get any funny ideas because i live on my own... with a gun.)

last semester i went home every week after zach left for about a month, and after that i didn't stay for much longer than 2 or 3 weeks in clarksville without making a trip to marietta.

so, here are a few things i've learned:

1. how to calm myself down after a nightmare

2. how to not freak out when my neurotic dog barks at nothing outside

3. how to avoid scary shows/commercials

4. how to listen for a running toilet

5. how to join a join a church, even when it is intimidating not knowing anyone

so, there ya go. nothing really interesting, but i am sort of proud of myself. needless to say, i'm ready for a permanent roomie... (ie: zach) :)

OH let's celebrate that 1/3 of the deployment has passed and that in a couple weeks we'll hit the 6th month marker!

uiSo I had to start a blog for a class last semester and I hated it, especially since no one read it. However, your blog is very cute! I'm glad that you are doing so well on your own. You are so much braver than I am. Oh and by the way, your facebook picture is hilarious. Keep blogging because it's really interesting...or I'm just really nosy. Again, I'm glad you're doing well!
