Exciting Mystery Sport REVEALED! I stated in my last post, I have become involved in a new sport! Now, if you were to quickly glance through my previous posts you may come to the conclusion that I am somewhat uncoordinated (and by somewhat I mean completely and totally). I am also somewhat out of shape, somewhat of a sissy, and somewhat of a homebody. So what kind of sport would be appropriate for an uncoordinated out of shape sissy who likes to stay home on Saturday nights you ask?? The kind that doesn't involve coordination, physical prowess, or the ability to interact with other adults without the use of a computer. What sport is that you ask?? I don't know...if you figure it out, send me an e-mail or something! In the meantime I have decided to do something completely inappropriate, given my lack of physical and social skills. I am now a proud member of a league of extraordinary women, a league of beautiful, intelligent, strong women! These lovely ladies have bumped me, bruised me, knocked me on my assets, and helped me back on my feet....or should I say wheels...or should I say my 8 wheels..or should I say my 8 wheels attached to my two skates...or should I say my 8 wheels attached to my two skates that I use for playing ROLLER DERBY!! That's right, I said roller derby. After the cookies are baked, kids schooled and bathed, laundry washed and folded, I grab my gear and head out to San Juan Capistrano, home of the South Coast Roller Derby girls, for the fastest fun in town! Okay...I'll admit it, some of that wasn't true (I don't always fold the laundry before practice) but the rest it totally factual. Cross my heart! :)

Where was I???? last I left off, Mr. X had just taken leave and we were on our way to Camp Pendleton, California! Woohoo! Well, we made it here in one piece (four pieces actually since there are four of us) and are now living happily in the nicest newest base housing I have ever had the pleasure of inhabiting. :) Mr. X's commute is all of SEVEN minutes, he gets to come home everyday while the sun is still shining (field ops excluded) AND he gets SATURDAY AND SUNDAY off every weekend! While this is all fabulous news, I must say it has been quite an adjustment for me. Not that I don't like seeing my husband so often, I just completely forgot what it was like! It's taken a few months and some butting heads but we are finally ( I think) back to the way things are supposed to be. :) So what do I do with all of my free time now that I have HELP around the house?! I'm still trying to figure that far I have taken up cake making/decorating, reading ( for pleasure not just instruction manuals, recipes, curriculum, etc.) and coming exciting mystery sport! :)

Not that I expect anyone to read this post (a year is a LONG time), but just in case someone are few pictures from this past year. :)

Friday was Mr. X's LAST DAY.....he is officially checked out and ON LEAVE! :) :)

He went trick-or-treating with the boys and I in the mall and instead of having to go back to work....he came home with us, passed out candy, and STAYED HOME....ALL NIGHT!

The boys enjoyed receiving candy, but had so much more fun handing out candy to other trick-or-treaters. In an effort to attract more kids to our house, B leaned out the front door and started yelling "Come get your fresh, sweet candy....we've got all your favorites right here! Come and get it!"
After we ran out of candy, B actually gave away all his candy he had gotten from the mall. He is such a sweetheart!

J changed his mind about his costume a minimum of 10 times, finally settling on Iron Man. B saw a Jengo Fett (?) costume at Target and JUST HAD TO HAVE IT! Of course it was the last one in stock and 4 SIZES TOO SMALL. He begged and pleaded and, finally... I agreed to buy it....but I warned him that it might not fit and if it didn't we would have to bring it back and find something different. The second we got in the door both the boys ripped open their costumes...(actually J started ripping his open in the van) and decided to play Iron Man vs. Jengo Fett. Within 5 minutes there was a GIANT hole in the butt area of B's costume. I wound up cutting it up into pieces and GLUING and DUCT TAPING the remnants onto a pair of thermal underwear. Can you tell I was desperate????? Fortunately for me, B still thought it looked "really cool" and I even managed to whip together something vaguely resembling a jet pack.
