Its amazing what One Husband + Deployment OVER can do to a weekend!! I used to DREAD the weekends!! The week would fly...I had my routine...I would work, work out, go home get a bit of lovin' from Ali clean and sleep. The weekends held NO routine and it meant date night for those couples around me!! Blah!!
This is our FIRST normal weekend together!! Last weekend didnt feel much like a weekend b/c Sev had just gotten home and was given 3 days off...so the weekend just felt like another day off. However, he went back to work monday...so today is really the start of a nice weekend!! I can feel it!!
Having only 1 car is actually a bit of a pain...for me anyways, but in a way its probably a good thing. I would love to roll over and go back to sleep when sev leaves for work but now I'm forced to get up and take him to Chads house where I then head to the gym. So thats what this morning held for me.
Sev got off of work early today :) He called and said he and Chad are going to hit the gym and then come by the house to take advantage of our apartment swimming pool. Then the boys and I are going to eat at Taco Del Mar...I've been on this HUGE taco kick lately, I have no idea why!! (NOPE not preggo!!!)...its been like this since before sev got back, something about moist chicken, fresh salsa, lettuce, onions and avacodo wrapped up in a corn tortilla with a side of black beans, YUMMO!! Then we have a few errands to run and we're thinking about hitting up north shore for a bit of snorkeling. I'm missing those beautiful brightly colored creatures of the sea!! Its killing me being back on island and not visiting the amazing deep blue. I did do a bit of surfing before sev got back, but I prefer to be under the waves, with the critters, than on top...it was fun though, surfing. It's such a neat sport. I love watching those that are talented enough to actually move around on the boards...I do good to stand up. It takes alot of energy, you would be surprised!! I cut my foot on some coral so I havent been back, but I've talked sev into taking me this weekend.
Oh...I also tried pig hunting!! Yep!! PIGS!!!
but NOT your little pink wilbur farm piggy...no these things are BEASTS!! They are BLACK with HAIR and TEETH!!! More like a boar!! They are wild here in Hawaii and make the BEST Kahlua Pork (hawaiian bbq). Jd Lambert (a friend sev graduated basic with) decided to take up pig hunting so I asked if I could join. First, they made me wear camo and boots. Jd still wont let me live it down that I sprayed perfume on before we left, lol...it was more like body spray, I had just left the gym and STUNK but according to Jd, stinky is better. We then headed on to Helemano Military Reservation on North Shore. We climbed around in the bush and at one point it opened up onto the side of a HUGE cliff!! The view was amazing!! I was taking in the sites when JD pointed down below about a yard and said "is that your phone??" uhmmm yeah, it was. It must have fallen out of my pocket when I was climbing about. I had to retrieve it and fast!! Before it rang and scared the pigs!! The climb was difficult and I actually managed to catch my shirt on a tree and leave a nice scratch on my side and back....I tried to convince everyone that a pig had attacked me, but no one believed me, hehe. All in all it was fun!!
Sev and I have listed TWO things that we WILL do before we leave the island this winter...we WILL go diving with Sharks on North Shore and we WILL Sky dive on the West Coast above Dilingham!! Both activities are things I've wanted to do while here...but we never got around to it...so its now or never!! I promise to take pics of both activities...and I probably wont tell anyone I'm doing them until they are done, to keep moms sanity....kind of like the time I flew out here to HI and didnt tell anyone, it just seems like a better idea that way. Although I'm sure mom disagrees 110%. Another reason I DONT want kids!! oh the heartache and worry.
So I realize this is a random post...but isnt that what blogging is about? Severyn is on this "looking for land" kick...he wont stop!! I've told him he is getting his hopes up and he's just going to end up finding the perfect piece of land that we just cant afford right now!! We would both like to have our house in Columbia sold within the next year or two (after he graduates Embry-Riddle), and I agree with him I totally want land!! It's just crazy to me to start looking!! He has barely stepped foot into our house we own now! But the boy needs land...and I need a place to convence dad to store the tractor (hehe). So I guess our next move will take us north of Columbia South of New York...wherever sev finds a flying job...but at least 1-2hours from Landrum.
Okay...I've rambled enough and sev should be home soon...I need to make the bed before sev thinks I've been in it the entire time he's been at work!!
