>Almost March

>Our average temperature for this time of year in Illinois is 40*. What is it today? 19*! I am ready for spring. Even 50* would be amazing. This has been the longest winter I can remember. I really cannot believe it’s almost March already. That means there are a little under three months of school. At least things seem to have picked up at work.. I feel like we’ve accomplished something! This third quarter has been really long.

There are only 36 days until I fly out to Tucson to see Aaron for Easter. I bought my plane ticket in early January and have yet to reserve the car and lodging. We’ll stay in the TDY (temporary duty) lodging on post – it’s only about $50 per night and it’s nice. As much as I love being on the worship team and being involved at church, it will be nice to just go to church on a holiday and not be involved. I’m also excited to visit the Huachuca Hospitality House where Aaron spends some time on the weekends. I can’t wait for the warm weather! I might even have to buy some more spring-y clothes before I go because everything from last year is too big.

I started to realize last night that Aaron graduates in only three months! In the midst of freaking out, I got a pen and paper and started making a list of everything I’m worried about that has to do with PCSing (permanent change of station, moving). Thankfully Aaron doesn’t worry like I do. When I look at it from a different perspective, there’s not a whole lot to worry about. I’m just gonna give it all to God and figuratively burn that paper.

I haven’t been to the gym since Saturday. It’s been busy this week! I hope to get there Friday or Saturday. Saturday night my sisters and I are planning on going out to eat.. it’s been months since we’ve done something, just the three of us. I love them so much.
