Julie's almost here!

I'm so nervous! Julie's flying in tomorrow from Florida. I haven't seen her since New Years 2007! I miss her so much. I'm sure I've been driving her crazy the past couple of weeks. I'm like a child with the anticipation and excitement and she's sooooooooo understated in her emotions. I have called her every few days for the past three weeks with just one question. "Are you excited yet????!!!!". I can hear her chuckle before she answers (like indulging a child). "Well, kinda.. almost Mom...I'll let you know". I know she misses me something fierce, as I do her. Its just that we're so far apart of the emoting scale, must be why we get along so well.

Corky is every bit as excited as I am. I just love him for that. He's taken my children straight to his heart. I frequently overhear him telling people about "his kids". Every time I hear that I realize what a wonderful man I just happened to meet, fall in love with and be lucky enough to marry!

Well, gotta run and start getting Julie's room ready for her. I'm sooooo excited...duh! She's my fragile yet incredibly strong daughter and I just can't wait to give her the biggest Magic Mummy Hug! It's Julie-Bug!

This is all new to me...

I have my sis~n~law, Charlee to blame for this one! I would never have even considered doing a "Blog" if I hadn't seen hers! It is all your fault Charlee. The whole Pettis clan has changed my life in more ways than one. But between Charlee and her brother, Corky (my hubby-the nomad), I'm not even the same person anymore. Of course, it has all been change for the better.

I've gone from being to a stick in the mud to being almost carefree. "Almost" being the operative word here! But really, I've been places and seen things that I would have only dreamed about if not for meeting the love of my life Corky. Funny, how such a chance opportunity could turn into a life changing event. The city girl meets country boy and never looks back. It sounds almost banal but it was so much more. There's more to this story than would fit on this page or that should probably even be put on this page. Just suffice it to say for now that it has been and is an ongoing adventure!

Then there's Charlee...my teasing, loving sis~n~law! She gets me every time! She's corrupted me in only the best and most loving manner! She lives to shock me, which frankly isn't all that hard. I miss her!

Well, that'll do for today. I have to think this blogging thing through just a bit more before I really let it rip!

This one is for you Charlee :)
