Once every couple of months

Guess I'll be one of those bloggers who updates about once every couple of months! Should have known that was going to happen. I am not happy with my blog layout at all, but don't have the patience to work through it and fix it how I want. It seems to be too much of a hassle for me to customize everything. Anyway...

I have been super busy lately with work. I have gotten overtime consistently for the past couple of weeks, and I don't see an end to that any time soon. I started a volunteer job today at one of the local middle schools here, working with ESL kids from multiple countries. Looks like I'll enjoy it, even though at the moment I have no idea what I'm doing! These kids are super smart, they are just having to learn a completely different language. From what I can tell, the different languages so far are: Arabic, Farsy, Burmese, and Chin. I'm sure there are several others, but I've only volunteered for one day so far. My task is to hopefully learn most of these kids names...which will be difficult since they are foreign names!

Deployment is going well. Hubby is enjoying what he is doing, and has been super busy for the past couple of months solid. I hear from him very sporadically, never knowing when he will call or email next. His 2 week leave to come home is coming up soon, and I'm super excited about that. We plan on being lazy the entire time, not setting an alarm, and just enjoying being together. I think I have finally set into a routine..only took me 4 months to do so! I miss him all the time, but seem to cope with it way better than I did even a month ago.

Guess that's all that is going on in my life. Everything is revolving around work at the moment! I don't have any pictures to share either...sorry. Hope this finds all of you well!
