I remember the times I was short.....you're a two digit midget.

Got your dress all set?

I do indeed have my dress ready. Picked it up last night and it'll fly home with me in my garment bag with my Class A's. I promise I'll have pictures lol. My entire company has already demanded pics of the "cowgirl wearing girl clothes" haha so I'll post them on here too.

Yeah I'm super stoked. I fly out late on the first, so basically I'm turning 21 (June 2) on the plane lol. Shopefully I can sweet talk a steward into going by TX time so I can get some booze 5 hours earlier haha.

Hmmmm hmmm hmmmm its been busy busy busy lol

Let's see, I'm down to 8 days till leave, 9 till I'm of legal age to partake in alcoholic beverages ;P, 16 till I have to wear the dreaded dress, 22 till I see my kids!!!!! Aaaaaah going crazy-psycho lol and procrastinating like a mofo. I still have to clean both my cars, get my registration done for my escape, pack, and I dunno haha

Just found out that there's a little boy that wants to adopt Champ too! Kinda sad but then again this is what I've wanted lol. Plus I've only seen him like 3 times in the last 4 months so it'll be good for him.

allright...im going to attempt to update this haha

soooo I flew away from the horrible island of doom on june 1st...turned 21 on the plane so of course...I bought alcoholz. got me some baileys and coke aand it was DELICIOUS.

Got to Dallas, met my new soon-to-be BIL and had my birthday lunch and more alcohol.

then the rest of that week is just a blur filled with meeting my super awesome niece and nephew, getting ready for the wedding, going out to the farm all week etc.

pictures are here:
FINALLY! some Vacation pictures (HUGE picture overload)

theres ALOT of work to still be done to get the farm running smoothly again. while we were at it we started looking at other properties around Saint Jo. we found this AWESOME 120 acre property with a nice little 4 bed 2 bath house. it has about 50 acres at the front which would be perfect for hay or pasture, another 20 is the house and work shed and the oil field(bleh) and then 50 in the back with a nice....ROPING ARENA. I'm in love.
pretty sure this is the one but we still have a lot of work selling the old house, getting insurance etc in order and all that.

anyways...the wedding was on the 8th and it was beautiful. time FLEW that day lol no pictures yet sorry.

then we stayed a couple extra days to help my sister and new BIL pack up the wedding and gifts so they could go off to St. Thomas island for their honey moon. and we left on the 12.

I cannot even BELIEVE how big Charlie is now. I taped him yesterday and he stands 16.2hh and is a whopping 1350lbs! hes HUGE.
Charlie and Red Pictures

this past 1 1/2 weeks has just been a bliss of playing with all my kids, going sorting, hanging with friends I haven't seen in 1 1/2 years and hanging with my family.
I think my mom is just trying to pack in everything possible in these last few days I have left here.
tomorrow we're going to Durango for a 10 mile bike ride, then going to the alpine slide and other fun stuff in CO.
Saturday we're doing the...X RUN! 5k runwith 15 obstacles. and mud. lots and lots and lots of mud. there WILL be pictures haha


and Saturday we are going to do a trail ride up in Cherry Creek with my old trainer so its gonna be a very busy weekend.

No place like home is there? Quite beautiful.....I bet you miss it don't you?

Oooooh i was. Going crazy without it.

Now im back in hawaii and im going crazy from missing it.


So basically heres my life plan haha.


I got into contact with the 1st Cav horse detachment and basically that has completely dead-ended.

The only reason for me to stay in would be for that so my plan is now to get outta heah!
My DEROS is 10 March 2014 and my ETS is 22 Feb 2015. What im going to go for is the 6 month voluntary early seperation so ill hopefully get out august 22 2014.

If I do get that chances are ill be stuck here the extra 5 months but thats way more acceptable to me than getting booted somewhereelse for 5 montbs and trying to get used to a new unit and new sops for a very short amount of time.

Right now im trying to get my TA back so I can get started on some classes to get my EMT license, go work for Dallas FD and eventually use my GI bill to get my paramedic/nursing

Its kinda freaky thinking I could potentially be just over a year from my freedom but im just counting down the days, this is definitely the right choice for me.

Catty as it may sound I seriously feel like I've been living 2 lives. The army is like my temporary insanity/ wake up call to get my life going and get some experience/money in my pocket while I pull my head outta my butt and figure out what im going to do with my life ; P

Yea, well, I think that's a darn good plan.

I read 10 brigades are going to be cut, and something like 70,000 troops. The Army might get hard to live with during and shortly after the cuts.....

Health care is the place to be if you can find a job you like.

I'm sure you're going to be fine and do very well....

Now, changing the subject....where's the dress pictures?

^^lol


Well anyways I don't know what it is but as soon as somebody mentions retention or reenlistment...the retention NCOs and officers pop smoke lol.

I've been trying to track mine down since I got back with no luck. Its a real possibility that I could be out ta the army August 22 2014. Aaaand I can't get a solid answer because he's never here! Grrr

Oh well.

Since I'm stuck here for now I just got a new TA form so I figure I'll start getting some college done on the army's dime while Im at it.

Not like were doing anything else since they just cancelled our TDY for no reason lol.



Oh and a picture!!!
Meet Obama. A neighbors bull that were using to breed the big mommas again since our move to tx has been put on hold.
