....an overused cliche to say the least, but oh how true it is. This month is half over already. I'm sitting here going through Zac's school folder for the week, and he is doing very well. He got straight A's on his last report card, and I was a bit surprised. Not that he isn't extremely bright, but he does have difficulty staying on task at times. There are usually a couple of B's in the mix, but as long as he does his best I am completely ok with that. Not only is this month half over, this year is flying by as well for which I am thankful. My husband will be coming home for 2 weeks leave on Sunday, and I am very excited about this.
I am definitely NOT wishing my life away, but I am wishing this year away. I want my husband home and my family reunited. Kendra will be a senior next year, and then there will be college. What else will be in store for the Addison family? Only time will tell. I'm always up for an adventure.......
as an aside, I am not trying to be rude by not answering comments like I used to. My psychiatrist suggested that I just write, so that is what I am doing....

.....Tomorrow I will be 40. I'm not sad about it or freaking out. Actually, I have a nice day planned, and I thank the Creator that I have made it this far. Two things are missing from my birthday. One is missing just THIS year and that is my husband. The other thing is my mother. On my birthday, when I was living at home she would wake me with a rousing version of "Happy Birthday" sung at the top of her lungs. Once I left home, I would receive a phone call on the morning of my birthday from my mother with her singing "Happy Birthday" at the top of her lungs. Unfortunately, I haven't been awakened with that wonderful phone call in over 17 years. Fortunately, this is the first year in over 12 years that my husband has missed my birthday, and I will be spending the day with our children and the evening with my friends. I am blessed beyond measure, so no doubt I will wake up humming "Happy Birthday to ME!"
