no rest

\

I woke up at 4 a.m. this morning. I turned the coffee on and sat down to work on a blanket.

Why am I so early? My to do list is long, and I have to get it all done today. Today is my day to kick ass and do a million things. I do not want to do anything the rest of the week.

Our marines start coming home tomorrow! That's right. Thursday and Saturday we will be waving our flags as our friends come home.

I am so looking forward to seeing everyone. One of the marines mom's is coming in and we have a girls day out planned.

I can't wait! But I must stay focused on the task at hand.

I have blankets to finish and to get collected up. I have to finish cleaning up around here. I want to get all of our laundry done before the marines bring me more laundry to do. I have to go turn in Nikki's paper work for her new school blah blah blah.

There will be no rest for me today. That is O.K. I can sleep when everyone goes back to work.

I am turning my alerts off, but if you would like to leave a message for the marines please do so.
