Busy as bees!

Whew! We have been living in a really fun and exciting whirlwind lately! With Chad's approaching deployment comes the necessity and interest in coming to see us SOONER than previously planned for family and friends. We are unfortunately approaching June 15th quite quickly and we are definitely staying busy in the meantime (which makes the time, but we are happy to be busy...catch 22, I guess). This past weekend, some of our best friends, Dom & Shannon, came from Del Rio to visit us. The just moved there from Little Rock, AR to become instructor pilots for the Air Force and are scheduled to get married June 26th in New Mexico. Chad was supposed to be the best man in the wedding, but because of this crazy sucky deployment, he has had to pass up the opportunity for the second best friend of his in a row. It's very unfortunate because we would LOVE to be part of their special day. We had a really enjoyable weekend with them though.

Coming this weekend, we have Chad's brother and a girl friend of his. They are coming Fri.-Mon. and we have plans to make a trip to SA-town on Sunday. The following weekend, Chad's parents and sister are coming Fri.-Mon. also. That next weekend, we are hoping to go to SA-town to get my hair done and to get Kennady's 6th month pictures taken by the Cozarts (hopefully :)). That next Wednesday, my family is going to Schlitterbahn for the day and then Thursday through Sunday, we have the annual Robertson Family Reunion at Lake LBJ in Kingsland. SOOO much going on it's crazy! Then, 2 days later, Chad deploys. Everything up until that day is fabulously fun and exciting, but no one likes a looming deployment. Bleh.

On a Kennady note, we think she is starting to teeth. There are moments when she just burst into a loud whiny cry that sounds like something is hurting her. Then we use Baby Orajel or Tylenol and things get better. She is also rolling over on her own, starting to push up into crawling position, talking in 'words' instead of coos, about to start real baby food, and being as giggly and happy as ever. She is sooo sweet.

Chad & I have vowed to start a new workout routine called Insanity and that is just what it is. It's a lot of high-intensity circuits workouts that last for short spurts of time (that feel like forever) with little rest. Yesterday was our first day and I am already SOOO SORE. I did realize though that prior to yesterday, the last time I had really worked out or done anything athletic was over a year ago, pre-pregnancy. It's going to be a painful 60 days, but hopefully we learn to stick to it and see some results.

Today I went to lunch with our commander's wife, the D.O.'s wife, and another spouse at Zookini's. They were really easy to get along with ladies and I really look forward to getting to know some of the other spouses at this base. Last time in NC, I didn't really do much to get involved with the other spouses, but I plan on changing that at this base. It is always so much more fun when you have one or several networks of friends to do things with. Plus, it helps to have women around that know and understand what it feels like during a deployment. We will see how the next couple of events goes, but I am hopeful that there are several spouses that I may get along well with.

I bought a rug to go underneath our dining room table today from Pier 1. I love that store. Although I very rarely purchase anything from there, it's a great store to waste time walking around in. I usually find good presents there for people too, so it's fun.

Well, I must get along to whatever is next on the agenda. I'm sure there's a list of about 50 things I have to do by this weekend laying around here somewhere. Hope all is well! (Shaunna, you and Addi are in my thoughts and prayers! I hope she gets better soon!)
