I'm So Excited!!!! And I just can't hide it!

Ok..if you didn't just sing the title of this blog and think of Saved by the Bell and Jessie are worthless!!!!!! Anyway, I am leaving to go home on Friday morning and I can't freakin' wait!!! Chris and Trek drove down from NC today and are already hanging out with our jealous. I have to work all day tomorrow BOO! Let me just say that my bags have been packed for a week now and are currently in the trunk of my car. ha! Excited? Maybe a little! It's going to be a huge weekend and so fun! Chris's mom turns 50, his grandmother turns 90, and The Outten women are going to find a wedding dress for Linds! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!! I ADORE my family and Arkansas and quite frankly I just live too dang far away. So the fact that in merely 1 day I will be home with all the things I love the most in one place makes me wanna jump up and down and scream! Can you tell I'm smiling?? Oh home!

Quick life update! I am now living/working in Maryland. I actually kind of enjoy what I am doing here. I am working in the National Naval Medical Center so I deal with soldiers coming home of Iraq and Afghanistan and their family members. I am learning a lot and to be honest some days are harder than others. The stories I hear and the things I see on a daily basis aren't always pretty, but they are real and it is the world I live in and work in temporarily. I am so thankful and proud of those people that dedicate their lives to service and am honored to treat their runny nose, broken arm, concussion or whatever.
Chris is still in NC. He has submitted a packet to be a member of a Ranger Regiment (Army lingo for more highly trained and specialized group). If he gets accepted we will be packing up our stuff and heading to Savannah, Georgia somewhere around the first of the year! I'm pretty excited for him. Not many guys get that opportunity and Savannah isn't a bad place for this Southern out Paula Dean!
I'm sure I'll have tons of pics from my glorious weekend to come! YAY!!!!!!
