Who is excited?!

Me! That is who! I'm getting my husband back in less then two weeks!
Hopefully right around what I had originally thought!
I'm super excited!
He still doesn't have tickets for the mainland but he knows when he leaves, and its in less then two weeks!
I also got a new hair cut

Just give us a date!

I think I'm going nuts from all the waiting.
We still don't have a due date, but I'm honestly just tired.
I want him home as soon as possible, and I have very little patients when its something I really want.
I wish they would just give him a due date and get it over with.
Even if he is extended
I just want to know what is up.
I need to know something, if I don't I can't ask for those days off, and there might be a chance I can't get it off because its just random like that.
I'm sure my coworkers will understand, but its not something I want to do to them.
Bleh I just hate all this extra stress. I don't need that.
Other then being frustrated I'm doing fine.
Michael is doing good too, just working and getting ready to come home.
I'm trying to keep positive, but not have at least something to go on is just driving me nuts.
Just 10% left...
that is it...
I hope these next to weeks don't drag....
I'm really crossing my fingers here.

Over 75% There

We're almost done with this deployment.
I'm so excited!
I honestly can't keep it inside sometimes.
Michael is doing good, mostly tired, but that is nothing new.
I'm so ready for this to be over.
We also decided where we want to go next.
I'm really excited, hopefully we'll get it.
If not I'll be happy where ever God sends us.

Baked Spaghetti

Baked Spaghetti link
Oh my gosh I tried this recipie for our tuesday night bible study
and it turned out great!

Here is a pasted version of it.
I wish I would have taken a picture, but honestly it looks the same almost as the one on the website.
I also added some mushrooms to it and I really liked them in there :)
anyways! Super easy recipe! Give it a try!
2 cups canned diced tomatoes
2 cups tomato sauce
1 cup water
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons House Seasoning, recipe follows
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
2 small bay leaves
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
8 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
1 cup grated cheddar
1 cup grated Monterey Jack

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a stockpot, combine the tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, onions, peppers, garlic, parsley, seasoning mixtures, sugar, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil over high heat, and then reduce the heat and let simmer, covered, for 1 hour. Crumble the ground beef in a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until fully cooked, with no pink color remaining. Drain the fat from the meat, and then add the ground beef to the stockpot. Simmer for 20 more minutes. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Cover the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan with sauce. Add a layer of pasta and then a little less than 1/2 of each cheese; repeat the layers, ending with the sauce. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Top the casserole with the remaining cheese, return it to the oven, and continue to cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 more minutes. Cut into squares before serving.

House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups
Preparation tine: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Ease of Preparation: Easy
