Well, these past 4 weeks of being 'at home' seem like they are to be short-lived. We have received orders to report to Arkansas for what could be the next 8 to 10 weeks (give or take). Chad is coming into his 'next step' towards becoming an even better-qualified pilot, so we are going to be there so he can upgrade himself and become an AC, which stands for Aircraft Commander (the head honcho, the main man, the left seater, etc.). Yay for profession progression, but BOO to being away from home all of that time.
A hidden happy thing about this is that the 'schoolhouse' is closed for two weeks for a Christmas/New Years break, so we don't have to take 'leave' for it, saving us like 12 days of precious vacation days. That's awesome.
I am still trying to figure out what I can be doing with myself for that whole time! I'm going to be carless because Chad has to have a way to get to work everyday, so that makes things kinda difficult. Luckily, Cassandra & Aaron are going to be there & I plan on intruding on Cass quite often, haha. I have a hair appointment made for the 17th (yay!), Cass is graduating with her Masters in Journalism on the 18th, and she's having a dinner party on the 16th! So, we at least have a couple of things to do while we are there this coming week.
Any ideas of what a girl can do while she is home with herself and a laptop? Preferably something that makes money. haha. I know, sounds pretty dreamy. But, I'm open to any ideas my friends.
Today & tomorrow, I will be busy packing us up for a 2 1/2 month vacation from home that has to include the appropriate clothing for our Christmas trip to Myrtle Beach and warm-wear for our New Years trip to NYC. Lots & lots of clothes to pack! I guess I better get to work!
We hit the road towards Arkansas on Wednesday, but plan on stopping in Asheville, NC for two nights so we can experience the famous Biltmore mansion's Christmas events. We are excited to see the amazing decorations. Here is a link to a small video of what we expect to see:
We've been looking forward to it since last Christmas when Chad wasn't here for us to go, so it should be fun! Gotta go get busy! :)
