D DAY LOOMING.........

The days are just racing by aren't they..................in about a week Steven will be off to Rocky and the kids and I will not see him for like nearly four months. I think its all starting to sink in now and i must admit i am scared to death of being on my own. We have never been apart for more than a couple of days and four months will be the biggest trial i have ever been through i think. The really sad bit is that he will miss Nicholas' fifth birthday in November and this has really upset Nick. He cried the other night when he's dad tucked him into bed, said he promised to save his daddy the biggest piece of cake for when he got back again. Its hard......so very very hard.........but i know this will be something that we won't regret and hopefully January won't take too long to roll up. The good thing is Steven finishes up at work this Wednesday so will be able to spend four full days with us before he heads off.
There's not much other news to share. There is a costume party for a friends birthday that we were invited to in a couple of weeks and even though steven won't be here i think i still might go. Be good to be with friends and it sounds like is gonna be a great night. Prob is though that i have no idea on what to 'dress up' as .................any ideas anyone??????? Have the kiddo's sorted out, Nick of course will be a pirate and Maddy is going as a fairy princess...............better get a move on to decide what i will be. Since Steven is missing it he has promised to dress up for her on Grand Final day - think he said he was gonna go as one of the american presidents......something to do with him and his mates dressing up as them years ago for school break up.....who knows!!
Well thats everything covered i reckon, weather has been really crappy here so that means scrappin time. Have managed to get three done in the last few days, will share my FAVOURITE one with you. I LOVE THIS LAYOUT!!!! Is not much to it really, but is such a gorgeous pic of Rylan and i just love the 'messy' look of the scraps.............and the new MM cheeky jigsaw letters are just sooooo funky - LOVE THEM!! The other two layouts are up in my gallery at Embellished, they are HERE if you wanna see them.
thanks for dropping by guys ................i have a feelin you all are gonna be my outlet for sanity in the next few months so thanks in advance. Take care and chat soon...........

Yeah time does fly. Good luck with everthing and I am sure Steven will miss you just as much as you and the kids will miss him. And hopefully Janruary will be here quicker than you think. It is all so exciting isn't it?

Julie, just loving the LOs!!!

I know how you feel, Shane being in the Navy has spent most of this last year away and in Jan goes away for 6 months, SO just hang in there, I think my fav saying is, "What doesnt kill you only makes you stronger"! oh and my best piece of advice, ROUTINE helped me ALOT.

But I will be ready and willing to listen to a bitch sesion if it all gets too much, cause I will need it too, more then likely!
