I am about to be invaded....

By teenagers....yes, they are arriving by the droves through out the day. I already called Rick and told him to stop at the commi and pick up more food because we are going to need it!!!

The joke is on him though........because I have a VBS event in the morning, so he will be here with all of them tomorrow morning:)

There will be plenty of eating, Wii playing, and giggling..and ssshhhhhing. I will post pictures I am sure..and save them for bribing.

So, today is Prince Kuhio Day here in Hawaii...which means of course a day off:)

Mine started first thing this morning, with a conference call in my jammies, because of course the mainland does not recognize our Hawaiian holidays:) I tried to go back to sleep after the call but my children were not I did the next best thing...I cracked the whip and got them maybe they will let me sleep in tomorrow morning...because if they wake me up I may find something for them to clean.

I still feel like I got hit by a mac truck hauling massive amounts of may be tmi for some of you...sorry. I tried to get up this morning and be all peppy and accomplish the long list of things I set out for myself today....but it didn't work. I managed to clean part of my bathroom, all of the closet, and do everything but dust my bedroom. I had such high hopes for the next two days...but I guess I will spend them resting. I may sit pool side for a while tomorrow with a good book, while the washing machine churns away with my clothes.

Fiona has yet to make her college decision...I am trusting God that she will not depart from the Godly training we have been doing all these years and make the right choice. I can do nothing but pray about this..because no matter what I say she doesn't listen....

Speaking of prayer....that brings us to orders....Now, I know we are leaving Hawaii, so moving isn't a concern. the concern is the type of orders....if he gets a shore billet that requires sea time or a lot of traveling he will not be able to finish his degree. This means that he will have to do at least another 6 years in...3 more sea and 3 more he can finish the degree. I just want to know what we are doing....

The good news is that I have settled on a topic for my message at the Woman's Conference...and no, I am not telling you right now:)

I am off to watch my dvr'd shows for the I will be ready to watch Grey's when it comes on:)

What's going on around here...complete and utter chaos of course.....

Rick is in for a couple of months so we are all adjusting to that and getting ready for shore duty. Of course we have no orders...but am I regardless of whether or not I stress and worry about it the Navy will have their way...and I just refuse to get my panties in a bunch about it this time. After much debate and in the end being voluntold...we are going to the sub ball...The Deacon/Senior Chief dude I am married to will be giving the invocation.

Diva is still applying to colleges....none of which are giving her the full ride that HPU is offering AND she claims she is not going to take out loans. Me, as far as I am concerned God has made a way for her to go to college and not have to pay a I believe the matter settled. She asked me a few minutes ago why we never started a college fund for took all that was in me not to throw the laptop at her....... She has major PMS and hates all of us...we are bad people for requiring her to have a clean room and be civil to her brothers and sisters...bad bad people!

Joshua is into football practice and weight training. His grades are improving...however I really wish that I could scrub his mouth out with Clorox bleach....he is so negative and has something to say about must be tough to have all those hormones bouncing around inside and have no way to release them.... How do I know he is not releasing them? Well, a friend of ours who is younger than us took Josh and his nephew out a couple of weeks ago and talked to them about "guy stuff" SEX came up and Josh's answer was...No way man my dad would kill me. What he doesn't know is that i would kill HIM and HER.

Becca is starting tryouts for JV Football cheer leading...You all know how I feel about cheerleaders...... Anyway, she must be worried about grades because she tackles me everyday to see if her report card came in...can't be good when the honors student is worried about grades.

Zach apparently had some time on his hands and decided it would be a grand idea to shave his eye brows...I blame my sister Amy and her boyfriend...hopefully someday fiance and then husband Ben really.... he has a strange idea in his head that he is going to be the best man in their wedding and is going to get a Mohawk which he will dye blue for the occasion.

I love my is crazy busy, but its all good. I would rather be busy than have to fake being busy. I only have to work three days this week....I am suppose to be off Thursday and Friday...but I have to take a conference call Thursday in the I will be doing that. I believe we will be heading to the beach and chilling on Friday night because Rick has a dining in.

So that is an update on what's going on around here...I will be back more often...:) Now Amy and Mellie leave me alone
