Jan 9 Queen of the Quilts
I started the year by joining in some 365 groups on Flickr. They are groups dedicated to taking and posting a photo every day through the entire year.
I can be quite lazy sometimes, so thought it would serve as some sort of motivation to keep looking for photos all around me. I've started off quite slowly, but the idea of posting boring photos everyday will soon get me looking for something more worthy of sharing. Kinda like living in a cluttered house...it eats at ya until you do something about it!
The holidays here were nice. We had one sailor come home to visit, but the other one couldn't. Being in Japan makes it much harder. We sent him a care package and he sent cool gifts from Japan that made everyone say WoW! I told him don't worry about not coming home, enjoy being in another culture! Life is an adventure!
Our oldest son will soon be joining him in Japan. He will be assigned to a destroyer in the same fleet and strike group.
Being a mom of sailors isn't easy, but it makes me very proud.
Happy Year to everyone....I hope to post here more often too!
