When Does Nothing Happen Around Here, Seriously?

I said I'd be back if anything happened, but July just sorta slipped away from me too. Not like  'a suntan oiled palm', as in my June post, exactly. More like a bottle rocket. But as July's go for me, it hasn't been all that bad.

I totally lost track of time but in the interim;

Littlest's was supposed to ship out August 19th, but none of her MOS's- (job choices)-had come up with an opening. So her ship date was moved back to-'we have no idea when'-but then...an opening just came up in Asian Pacific Linguistics (that's all I'm allowed to tell you) and if she gets chosen for it she will be leaving for boot camp...we have no idea when.  It's going to be a surprise.
Possibly with up to a few days notice-YAY...
But that's ok because she bought these boots.



Middlest decided not to join the Navy but fell in love with an Army Man instead and had a very romantic whirlwind two weeks with him before he was sent to Germany for a year. YAY...sorta..

I don't have a picture of that but it involves looking Mooney eyed,  and because of time zones, staying up till all hours, just to say 'have a nice day',  and life or death timing accuracy for her work breaks to say,  'goodnight.'


Biggest called this morning. She said: Tell me if I'm crazy. It feels like my stomach is thumping.

Hee Hee : ) Because....


She recently had an ultrasound and ..and..we're getting a GRANDGIRL! YAY!!

 
And that's her foot. BABY TOES! :-D
 
 
On another note. During a dinner conversation the other day the girls complained that though I had posts that mentioned everyone, they hardly ever had a post of their own. Down at the bottom of the page, Dears, my labels will tell you that Littlest (accused of getting the most) has 25 Posts. Middlest has 28. Biggest has 15. But when I began this blog you were already a grown up and you actually have 16. The hardest post I ever wrote was about you and it was so hard I couldn't leave it on this blog. I put it on the other one. And I don't want you to read it. However, Mid is grown up now and Lit is leaving, and you are pregnant. I'm sure you'll be catching right up.
OK?

Stay tuned. Coming up next,  I will have another fascinating pictorial concerning what I was doing when I 'wasn't doing this.' We'll take a peek in my bedside table. Riveting stuff I tell you-Riveting.

  1. Too quick on the publish button- congrats on adding more girl power to your team. I love it when the balance of power is estrogen-based.

  2. I think Sheldon is already getting baby fever. I wonder how long before someone starts calling me Meemah.

    1. You never know. It's a surreal and giggly feeling all at the same time. And I Am Not a giggly person ; )

  4. Not surprised - after all I had the boys and got the grandson so stands to reason that if you had the girls then you get the granddaughter. Healthy and happy is all we really want anyways.

    You're so going to love being a grand momma

    1. I have to admit I was pulling for a girl. I have one box of cars and trains in the closet and 2 trunks and a storage box full of Barbie's and American Girl dolls! Though I do have 5 boxes of books that will do for either.

  7. grandgirl!!! FIGURES. that should keep you doing moon posts well into your gray-old-granny years :-) Miss you friend. I should not even be here now, as cat litter, sour towels, and dishes are waiting. yes, at eight in the morning, because i STILL like to leave things. wanted to pop in though while i was on the computer scouring for deals on gigantic boy shoes, so I can avoid taking any of the children to an actual store for BTS shopping. Cuz you know how THOSE trips go... :-)
