wow what a day! i finally got my name changed, officially not just facebook official :) it wasn't too bad just took all damn day to get my new license, social security, bank accounts all the mail in my name, blah, blah, blah! now i'm blogging a little while i'm baking cookies before a few friends come over for a movie night. one of the reasons i love fall so much, curling up with new and old movies and good friends.
my birthday was on sunday the big 21! yeeehaaaw! it certainly wasn't like the typical 21 run but thats okay because i'm so not the shot shot shot kinda girl. i was happy with my coors. mike wasn't planning on coming home but my mom said it was stupid for him not to. so he flew home and we were able to spend time together without dealing with wedding stuff. i love love love staying up all night just talking about our future. mike is ready for kids now. i am too i would love to have a baby now but i don't want to do it with him states away and never knowing when he can come home. we're thinking in about a year we'll start trying so by the time baby mcbride comes into the world he'll be home or at least close to being home. all in due time :) we just signed our lease again for 6 more months than its house shopping time! i love when our lives seem to fall into place. ha ha picture perfect mcbride household minus daddy for now!
i know probably no one has even noticed all the hurricane talk because it hasn't been bad and it is so far away but as a linewife i think its in my dna to watch the weather channel and hope it hits!! now i know this is terrible BUT this is what mike has been livin for... STORM TIME!! not only does it give him his crazy boy rush, and great experience but helloooo major paychecks. after talking to the older lineman storm checks are what pay for the toys and new cars all in cash. we just want to pay off my school loan and uhmmm a nice down payment for our house. its terrifying if i sit and think about the weeks i won't talk to mike wondering if he's okay or even alive. him up on that pole with the storm raging around. its scary but mike is smart i listen to him talk about his work and he knows his shit. besides i spent years watching my dad leave in the middle of the night to go on sniper hunts and call outs. that was all just prep for me to be a calm, patient line wife :) thanks dad!!
