Separation Anxiety

So, Dan has been gone for 3 Sundays now. I'm counting the Sundays and not the weeks for two reason. Reason first: Because he left on a Sunday and Reason second: Because I miss him the most on Sundays. When I finally get through the whole Sunday and it's Monday morning I feel rather proud of myself and mark another horrible day off the calendar. Most days I sit around after work watching Grey's Anatomy on dvd. It's pathetic, I know, but what else is there to do? Seriously, my life is very boring. So, to liven things up a bit, i've been going back and forth from my parent's house in Wichita to my apartment in Manhattan. This has been keeping me busy somewhat and it's been nice to be around people.

On Thursday I'm leaving for Dallas for the 4th of July. Dan's boot camp isn't like other basic training because he's technically in Officer training, so they get that weekend off! So, guess whose going to San Antonio? ME! From Dallas I'll drive down to San Antonio on Friday and spend the weekend with my hubby. We're both super excited about this. This whole being apart thing has been a lot harder than either one of us had anticipated. To make things even worse, Dan is "in the field" this week so I can't talk to him. Lame. I have to take care of all of this super obnoxious car, apartment, and life stuff without him. Stupid.

On a much happier note, my birthday is tomorrow! Yay! Dan's mom sent me a gift which was so awesome and so nice! I really married Dan for his family, lets be honest. They are all so amazing and I just love them. So, that really made my day today.

If you got all the way to the end of this, I applaud you. Thanks for reading.

Bye Old Car :(

Hello New Car

Bye Old Dan

I miss him a lot.

So, my new calling in our Ward is Assistant Camp Director. Not to be confused with Assistant TO the Camp Director. Lately, because of this, I've been thinking about my girl's camp experiences. I loved girl's camp. Seriously, what a blast. Unfortunately I could only find 2 pictures to document my good time.

I'm the lady in red

Eat your heart out.

Our New Baby

Our "new to us" car!! yay!
Yes, it is yellow. And yes, it's stick shift, but we love it anyway just the way it is.
So, the majority of my week has been spent learning to drive this lemon.
Dan leaves for boot camp on Sunday for 6 weeks. :(
Lianne is now a Clements. Yay!!!
We can barely afford living with all the curve balls life has been throwing at us lately, but what doesn't kill you, only brings you closer. 
We got to spend a whole week with my family for Lianne's wedding.
While in Dallas, we were camping in Jill's living room in our brand new tent!

Chris and Blaire were also camping in the living room.
Chris snores and the earplugs were less than mediocre. Haha.
Dan and I are scrambling to get everything done before he leaves.
I'm struggling to keep my composure and be supportive because I'm going to miss him so much, and selfishly I don't want him to leave. 
But, amidst all the stress and trials, we are so incredibly blessed. 
So, that's the update. Our life is pretty stressful right now and busy, but we're still disgustingly happy. :)
