As some of you know I've been doing a countdown to my vacation home since about mid September. Now we're down to 23 days and I'm just so excited. I know I haven't written a blog in so long and its not because I've been super busy really, I've just not felt like writing. Poor excuse I know but sometimes you are in the mood to spill your guts and other times you just aren't. Even now I'm sort of blase about writing anything but I feel like I should since its been so long.
I'm trying to think of all the things in Cheyenne I want Mace to see. How do you show your fiance everything from you childhood in a measly two weeks back home? I guess there really is no way. I know he wants to see a few of the museums, the base, my neighborhoods and see the places that are special to me but there just isn't enough time and I know we both want to take the time to enjoy Christmas with my mom. Mom is trying to find her groove with holidays without dad and I know its really hard. I think she is really looking forward to Mace coming down with me because at least that means there will be a guy in the house and some of our traditions will be more normal. It just seems so weird going home to a place where dad is not there to greet us and be a part of the festivities. Seems so empty. Mom and I did our best last year to keep things light and fun but I have to admit it was hard for both of us. At least with Mace there to add his two cents to the conversations and keep football on the tv it will seem a bit more normal.
Well I really can't think of much more to say at the moment. So I'll leave you with my countdown and hope that tomorrow or the next day I'll have something more interesting to talk about.
