bad and good

the bad news

its official
my flake left this morning

he got a call on friday afternoon that changed his plans
which allowed him to stay here until this morning
which i am ever so grateful for
but it sure was hard to let him go
and you can imagine
my breakfast wasn't as sweet
without my cornflake!

he is heading to pittsburgh
and then after some work there
he will officially head to texas....
so for the next week or so,
his life will continue to be up in the air
god bless his heart
(and mine too)

the good news

so these are the things making me smile today....
i got to see flake for two days more than i was supposed to!!

i got to kiss flake good morning one more time before he left!!!

only 9 more school days

diesel is spending time with her grandparents (flake's parents)
and enjoying herself and all her outside time

going to see church at my daddy's church yesterday, and getting to see my parents
then...dinner with flake's parents and grandmother
:) it was a great day!!

my little friends at school are ecstatic about mr. caterpillar becoming a butterfly
(i've got pictures coming of mr. caterpillar, and his cocoon.....)

my bulletin boards at school look SOOOOO good, thanks to flake's mom....
and yes mrs. g, they noticed!!! :)

my new laptop (from my sweet flake) is super duper exciting!!!

i found (and bought) my size, and color.....even though the croc company has stopped making the kind i like :) yay!!

and....if all goes well, i get to see flake in 11 more days!! :)

(and how could i forget....spell check....without it, this post would be really sad!!!)

You have such a great attitude! Again, I need to remember that even with my new schedule, at least I get to come home to Adam every night!

What great things to have on your list to make you smile...I know none of them and/or all of them don't come close to over-shadowing what's going on but atleast you're smiling! Love that!!!

I was glad to see that your good news list was longer than your bad news list!

Stay positive. You guys will do okay. And just think about those reunions you and Flake will be having (oh my, I'm blushing!)
