This past week, My Airman was able to come home before 4 almost every evening! It was absolutely wonderful, and we were both excited to have a little more time to spend together. :o) Even though he wasn't working 12-14 hour shifts, he's still very frustrated with the way things are being managed in his shop. He's planning to talk to another one of his supervisors and ask if he can be transferred back into his old shop. If it's the Lord's will, everything will work out, so... we'll see what happens. Even if he isn't able to transfer out of maintenance, he'll be on leave next month (well, almost the whole month) for Jessica's visit, and then we're leaving in January, so... I think he'll be able to hold on until then.
My honey was even given today (Friday) off, so that was a nice surprise! :o) We went to bed last night around 7:30/8ish... oh, goodness! Admitting that we went to bed so early makes me feel like we must sound like we're old people or something, LOL! To be fair, my airman has to be up around 0430, and I'm pregnant, so yeah. That should make things sound a little better, right? ;o) It was simply fantastic to "sleep in" this morning. Even though I don't have to wake up until around 0600, I'm usually up when the alarm goes off for my husband, so it was nice to actually sleep until it was my time to get up! :o)
It was strange when I left for school, though. My Airman was the one hugging and kissing me goodbye, rather than the other way around. He even did all the dishes and cleaned out the van for me today while I was at work! Definitely a switch from our regular roles, LOL!
All of the students and teachers take a break around 10 every morning, and my honey surprised me by stopping by the school with some french fries and a Dr. Pepper -- some of my favorite snacks and things I have been craving for a few days (I'm trying to be good and not eat that sort of thing too much, as I don't want to gain 50 pounds with this pregnancy, LOL). :o) Mmmmmmmm! A yummy breaktime snack, hehehe. Oh, and I was happy that he visited, too, of course. ;o)
A few weeks ago I posted about not being able to find clothes that fit, and several of you wrote in with different online stores that sell smaller-sized maternity clothing. After that, I put in a huge order with Old Navy and Gap, and all of my clothing came in a few days ago. I was so excited, relieved, and excited -- can you tell I am excited?! Before my order came in, I was really trying to stretch my wardrobe -- wearing my skirts with the zippers halfway unzipped, unbuttoned, pulled down below my belly, etc (don't worry, I was wearing my long shirts, so that I was covered up, LOL). May I just say that it is so nice to have things that fit?!?
My Airman's out golfing with one of his co-workers right now, so the house is a little quiet. I have to finish up a few things around the house, but it's looking as if we'll have a relaxing weekend as we have very few things planned, so I'm glad for that. We have really been needing a break, and this is a welcome change for us. I'm even getting a break from cooking dinner tonight! My hubby's going to grill up some "heart attack hot dogs" for us. I have never had one before, so don't ask me what's in them, lol. All I know is that there is a lot of cheese, bacon, and (I'm guessing) grease! I might end up needing to order the next size up in maternity clothing if he keeps this up... so much for eating healthy during this pregnancy, LOL! :P
