And He says "I love you, I'll call you tomorrow."

For the last couple of days he has been waking me up at 5:30 or so am.
LOL now I wake up at that time regardless of he calls or not.
Just as I was about to post this he calls at 6:40 .

I almost gave up hope. Funny man...
and then he says those sweet wonderful words

Those words just make my heart melt.
We haven't fought during a conversation yet, but even if it wasn't all that great,
the hope that he will try his best to call me back tomorrow makes it all worth it.
Everyday I honestly feel like I love him more and more.
As much as my body minds the lack of sleep
Its so worth it to hear his voice every morning when I wake up.
I just love him.Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Should we stay? (or should we go go...)

So should we extend? Or should we go...
I don't know how long the tour will be if we do....

Good Points about leaving the island

  • Starting out a new adventure!
  • Chance to see my friends and family again.
  • Making more and wonderful friends
  • Enjoy something different
  • Having a new house *hopefully*
  • We might get to be back in the mainland
  • OR we might be overseas again!
  • Get a chance to visit a different country *maybe*
  • OR if we get the mainland we can take road trips again!
I'm sure there are more reason to go! I just haven't thought of it yet. When I was a child a huge part of my dream was to travel... I'm also scared that if we stay this tour I won't be able to leave it once that ends...
*I will if I have to, but by then I'll be attached*

Why I don't want to leave

  • have to leave my wonderful friends *even though I know they are my friends for life*
  • living here is wonderful
  • Won't be able to experience things on the island anymore
  • Too expensive to visit here.
Regardless... living here we'll still have all those wonderful memories that all our great friends have provided.Image and video hosting by TinyPic
If this is part of God's plan I am not going to fight it one bit. I know its for the best, and that he isn't sending us anywhere to punish us. No place will ever be like here, but home is where God sends us.
Not where the military sends us.
Where GOD sends us.
He has the final say on all things.
Either way, we've been greatly blessed.
I thank God for all of thisImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Albondigas <3

It was my first time trying Albondigas by myself and it turned out great!
I'm so proud of myself
I'm glad it was such a good hit with all my friends!

here is the recipe

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours,

* 1 lb ground beef (or combination of 1/2 lb beef and 1/2 lb chorizo)
* 1/2 cup rice (uncooked)
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon cumin
* 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
* 3 quarts chicken broth
* 4 stalks of celery, chopped
* 3 white onions, cut into quarters
* 1 bunch cilantro, leaves only
* 4 large carrots, peeled and chopped or sliced
* 2 cups greens (mustard, spinach or other)
* 2 teaspoons of oregano
* 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
* 1 teaspoon cumin

Mix ground beef with rice, 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1 teaspoon of salt and the crushed garlic. Form 1 1/2 tablespoons into a meatball by rolling it between your hands until it forms a ball. Do this with all of the meat until it is all formed into meatballs.

Bring broth to a boil in a large pot. Turn down to a slow simmer (where there are hardly any bubbles) and add in meatballs. Simmer gently for 20 minutes.

Add in the carrots, onion, cilantro, remaining spices, garlic and celery. Simmer for 1 hour and 15 minutes minutes or until rice in meatballs is cooked through. Add in the greens and simmer for an additional 15 minutes.

Serve hot with fresh flour tortillas.

I added small red potatoes
With a 1 1/2 cups rice to the actual soup.
Also if you can find some consome de pollo just add to taste.
Looks like this on the mexican section

Also add some lemon juice to it once served.
I find it taste better to me if you use corn tortillas rather then flour, but that's just my opinion.
Hope you girls like thisImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Over the HUMP!!! YAY

We're at 53% done with this deployment!
Which means........... I'm getting Michael back home soon!!! <3 Image and video hosting by TinyPic I can hardly hold it all in! I wonder how it'll be like when I reach my last month away from him, or even just a week before he is due home!
Not just that but Michael has made it a point to call me more often! I'm so happy right now I can just burst from joy. He is always working so hard. I'm so proud of my hubby, he is the best thing that has ever happened. Even though we're far apart he still tries to keep me happy. UGH I just love him so much! <3333Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I don't ever want to live my life without him in it somehow. I'm the luckiest wifey in the whole world!
