My Good Friend Wendy

Well, I haven't blogged much lately. Too busy trying to move in, all the while driving the kids an hour each way to school. On Monday, we were almost there, but I was running low on gas, and we were early. So, I stopped and got gas. As we were pulling away, I said, "What is that sound?" Theron said, "It sounds like we're pulling a trailer." Which of course we weren't. Then he said, "Wait a second, I feel like I'm getting lower, and you guys are up higher than me. Pull over mommy!" So, I pulled over, and my tire was flat, flat, flat. All the way down to the rim. Luckily, my friend Wendy was able to come and get Theron to school on time, because he had a field trip.

In the military, with all the moving we do, each time you move, it's both an exciting thing, and a sad thing. Obviously I am very happy that my husband is home, and that we're embarking on a new adventure. However, this also means that we are moving away from Wendy! She is the whole reason we moved here when D was leaving. She was a friend when I needed one. I just wanted to say thank you to Wendy for being such a good friend. I will miss sitting with you and eating candy. I'll miss watching movies with you while criticizing the plot lines and eating popcorn! I hope that since we're only an hour away, we'll still be able to find the time to get together and go see movies or something! Thank you God for sending me such a wonderful friend!

By the way...Wendy's birthday is this month. I won't give away an exact date, for privacy purposes, but I hope she won't mind if I say it's this month, so if you read her blog too, please go over there and wish my great friend Wendy Happy Birthday! (She's going to be so proud of me for putting a hyperlink on my blog. I hope it works).
I'll still post pictures of Shane's birthday soon.

Wow, I'M proud of you for doing a hyperlink - I have YET to figure that out!!
God does indeed give us amazing friends, especially military spouses. Where would we be without each other?

Your blog both made me sad and happy at the same time... sad to have to go through all the heartaches and move (ps- did i mention we might have to get the movers to move us the day before our wedding?... another blog another time!) but anyways- it also makes me happy to realize that i'm about to meet some of the most amazing women ever in this lifestyle... (already have "met" some through the blog- ya'll are great!)

Ok, I never knew what that weird green symbol was called - I always wondered what Hyperlink meant ;-)

Moving from one place to another is such a hard thing to do but you are so lucky to meet so many different people and even make great friends. You and Wendy sound like so much fun, I wish we could meet someday!

Wendy said...

Allright people, someday we DO need to meet. A big huge bloggy momma vacation!! How fun would that be? Anyways, Thank you Kristen for your sweet sweet thoughts and comments. I am gonna miss you. Yeah- and thanks for reminding me the big one is coming up. I am trying NOT to think about it. :) Love ya girly!!

Wendy said...

Oh yeah! I am proud of you for doing the link! Way to go!!

Oh, car trouble is one of the worst things ever, isn't it? Thank goodness for good friends who can come along and help you out.

I had a flat tire one time while talking to a friend on the phone. I hung up and pulled over, called Big Daddy and waited. Five minutes later, my friend pulled up to keep me company while I waited.

Good friends are such a blessing, and I hope you'll meet some wonderful new people in your new neighborhood.

Is the moving in all done yet?
