My John

I am so blessed for my adorable hubby, John.
For those of you who don't know, John has been gone for the last month in Washington (state) to do his LDAC training. (I didn't share this info sooner because I didn't feel too comfortable with the idea of informing the world through the internet that I was home alone for a month. not a good idea) LDAC is training for those who are in the ROTC and plan to become a Lieutenant in the military. Pretty much what he did was did crazy wilderness training (he even was interrogated in the gas chamber with no mask) and they annalyzed his ability as an officer.

I finally got to pick him up from the airport last wednesday. This last week has been so wonderful to have him back. It's made me realize how much I take John for granted and that I should really appreciate all the things he does for me! I love him so much and I am so greatful to have the love of my life home with me again.

*side note* Although a month seemed forever, I am so grateful it was ONLY a month. There are so many wives that I know that are (or have) waiting for their husbands to come home after long trainings or tours they've been on. Having John in the military really has opened up my eyes (and patriotic side) and has made me MORE grateful in the country that I live in and for those who have and are fighting for our freedom!

To the Rescue

The spider thing has gotten way out of hand! At least for me. For last few months, I've just been telling myself that there aren't any spider issues. I hate it so bad that I have to go to this totally different state of mind. Stupid I know. Due to my last post, my cute mom has been a little concerned for me. (She raised me, she knows how I feel about spiders) Hence, she told my father. And if you know Papa Poulsen, he gets the job done!!

(yes, I look just like my papa! :) )
He went out of his way, risking his life, came to my house, and sprayed the hair beasty things! And it was greatly needed because he informed there were 6 spiders in my tub downstairs, with the drain closed!! That's just not normal! Thank you for saving my life, Dad! You truly are the best! LOVE YOU! I think I will be able to sleep a little better at night now.
