We're going to grill up some steaks and have a nice bottle of wine tonight to celebrate the beginning of the end.... of my twenties that is.
P.S. My green card (which is no longer green btw) and social security card came this week. Hooray!

I despise going to the dentist. I have sensitive teeth and absolutely dread the captain-hook-like instrument they use to pinpoint problems and start each cleaning. Shudder. Not fun.
What is fun is this video of Roo chomping on Mr. Blue Bee. Also fun is the fact that J was able to get a commercial ticket and is coming home tomorrow.

And what originally was supposed to be a 7 day detachment for J has now turned into a 16 day ordeal and counting. Why? Because old planes suck... and they don't work. End of story. Build some new ones, get smarter crews. I don't care..... do something.
So happy father's day to all of the dads out there and a special happy first father's day to J, who won't be here to celebrate it.
Fitness update: (at least I get to the gym every day) running 3 miles every second day and plan to up that this weekend as long as Roo complies. Went to spin today and because the time was changed at the last minute, got our neighbor's son to watch Roo. (He is only 12 but the oldest of 7 kids, one of which is Nadia's age and he came with me to the gym.) She was surprisingly sedate with him so now that he's out of school, I may just have to call on him more often.
J didn't get the orders he applied for so it's back to the drawing board upon his return. Hopefully there will be shore available. The sea billet he applied for was kinda scary anyway. A good quote from the show, "Carrier," "we are defending democracy on a floating dictatorship." Or something like that.

J is away, Nadia doesn't nap and I have no lifeline. Life is grand.
P.S. A few hours after this post, our phone service returned. So going postal is on hold.... for now.
In order to combat Roo's daytime sleep deprivation and to get a workout, I run her around the track for 1.5 miles to sleep and then manage to squeeze in another mile on the treadmill (way easier than pushing a stroller!) bringing my capabilities up to 2.5 miles, 3 months post-c-section. I'm happy with this and hope to be at at least 3 miles by the end of June. Just in case anyone was wondering.
