it is friday

Well it is Friday and I do actually have some stuff to do today. But for now I am going to write and drink some chi tea.

Tonight all of our single marines will be coming up. I am sure going to miss them when they leave. They are suse to be on half day's since they will be leaving soon, but their commands have been making them work long hours. So I thought I would make them a good dinner filled with comfort food.

The other day Nikki and were bored so we started pricing air fare. Did you know that we can fly from California to Hawaii for only $250 round trip? We started calling of our girls friend and asking them if they wanted to go! LOL Now if only we could actually get everyone together and go.

Amber is home and she said that she was starting to get home sick. That funny, because she is now out at a friend house!

Next week I have to take the girls to register for school. I am not sure if I am looking forward to that or not. I know I am looking forward to the first day of school. I think to celebrate the first day of school I am going to walk around totally naked and do nothing!

Yesterday I went to the store and bought some stuff for me to take back to my parents house. Nikki asked me why I was buying some of the stuff, and when I told her, she said "pop won't die, he said that we are going out there next summer". I know that it is going to be hard on the children when my dad dies. I guess grandparents are not allowed to pass away.

Anyway, I need to get busy and get moving. I hope everyone has a good Friday!

I feel for you and what you are going through.  My daughter was 6 and my son was 12 when my father died four years ago.  His cancer was fast growing, so there wasn't a lot of time to get them prepared.  My daughter has had a hard time dealing with it and only this year has been able to start talking about him.  She has had severe anxiety attacks from not grieving properly, but has been doing much better.  There is no "good" way to deal with telling them, I guess.
