We're on Plan F.

As of 10 pm tonight, Hubby will be flying to City 3 due to weather issues at City 2. I will still continue my trek to original City 1.

We're on Plan E...

Contingency plans are a normal part of life for the military family. Hubby and I have contingencies for everything, including weekend fun. This was the evolution of our latest contingency plan.

Plan A: Hubby to take "cross-country" flight to City 1. I will drive to join him in City 1 for fun weekend with family and friends.

Plan B: Plan A cancelled. Hubby searches for another cross-country opportunity, but can't find one since notice is too short. Notice is short only because Plan A was cancelled. No cross-country flights.

Plan C: Local flights an option, but might or might not happen. If no flights, Hubby and I will travel (by car) to original City 1 for fun weekend with family and friends.

Plan D: If local flights do happen, Hubby and I will both stay in town for weekend together (mixed with a few flights).

Plan E: Cross-country flight opportunity available to City 2. Hubby to go to City 2. I will drive to City 1 for weekend with family and friends.

Welcome, Autumn!

For my annual "ode to fall" and in honor of my favorite season, I thought I'd make a list of my top ten favorites about fall (in South Texas).

  1. That first taste of candy corn.
  2. Hearing the leaves blow by on the sidewalk.
  3. Pumpkin-spice scented or flavored anything.
  4. Thinking that 90 degrees is a cool front.
  5. Seeing pumpkins and gords at the grocery store.
  6. Finally having an end to the infamous "South Texas Summer."
  7. College football.
  8. Still seeing blooms on my hibiscus bush.
  9. Wearing long-sleeves without AS many strange looks.
  10. Dreaming about what to dress the dogs as for Halloween if Hubby allowed that sort of thing.

Happy fall, y'all! :)

Think about such things...

There's no such thing as perfect people
There's no such thing as a perfect life
So come as you are, broken and scarred
Lift up your heart and be amazed
And be changed by a perfect God

-"Perfect People" by Natalie Grant
