Hi gals! DH got home on Sunday morning and we've had fun being back together again. He's leaving again soon, but only for a few days this time, yay!

We got a foot of snow on Friday night and it looks like it did two months ago outside right now. Ugh. I guess the temperatures are supposed to climb this week, which will help with melting the darn stuff! Spring break is over and I went back to school yesterday. I have a test on Thursday in Earth Science and I think it will be okay. I have two papers to work on this weekend and so I'm back to my busy self.

What a sweetie I have. From his trip he brought me a few prezzies and one was a real Chicago police department baseball-type cap! It's cute... don't know if I'll ever wear it, but it's cute. He also got me a CD that I'd asked for for Christmas, but didn't get. A week after he left, I discovered that I already owned it - too funny. I'll have to return it to get a CD I DON'T have yet! Then yesterday he bought me planted Gerber daisies - they're super cute and pink.

DH and I have decided to "wing it" in regards to finding a place to live in Virginia. It would just be too expensive to go down ahead of time to look for places, so we're planning on staying in Navy Lodging until we find a place. We'll make appointments and such ahead of time so when we do get there, we'll be good to go.

Other than that, I'm done with school in five weeks from Thursday and FIL hasn't been up to visit (and to drive me nuts). The BEST thing though is that even though I couldn't work out last week due to the gym being closed over break - I didn't gain anything! Whoo hoo! That's a positive thing!

Hope you're all doing well! Hugs, Jill

Hi Jill!

YAY!!! Christopher is home! What a good guy bringing home presents. There's still that little girl in all of us who loooves souveniers, isn't there?

Are you going to stay at the Navy Lodge in Norfolk? I stayed there when I shipped my car to Iceland. Definitely no frills, but cheap, cheap, cheap! LOL.

Great about no weight gain despite not being able to work out. I cannot BELIEVE that winter will not go away up north! My sister just wrote me and said they got a foot of snow yesterday. Sheesh. You guys have had a looong, hard winter.

:) Melissa

It sounds like things are going great in your neck of the woods, except for the snow of course. I am so glad everything is moving along, and I wish you luck with your housing in Virginia. Good luck with school too.

Awww Jill that is so sweet that he brought you flowers and presents! What a keeper you have there ;-)

LOL about the CD..that is something that would happen to me! At least you can get another one! What are you going to get?

Good luck with finding a place to live down there but I think you might be on to something that is just perfect! ;-)

Hugs Jilly! AND WTG on no weight gain! You go girl!

Oh that sounds wonderful. It must be so nice to have the hubby home. Great news on your no weight gain. That's awesome. Keep up the good work and enjoy your time before you have to move.
