I feel loved :)

First of all I want to say thank you to everyone who read my last post and left me advice and words of encouragement. It was greatly appreciated and so nice to get some feed back about what others have done that were in similar situations like mine. I still haven't fully decided what I want to do yet, but I am just trying to take things one day at a time for now. I've decided I want to see how things go for the next few months before I make any big decisions just yet, cause who knows maybe in a few months time I'll feel more confident about staying here by myself. :)

Now onto more light hearted things...Friday I had an absolutely AWFUL day at work. It was just one of "those" days that anything and everything goes wrong. We were crazy busy at the bank and one of the tubes in the drive thru broke so the line was backed up all day, and customers kept getting mad at us for the long lines. I dropped all my deposits and checks all over the floor while searching for a deposit that a customer was inquiring about, and I spent the rest of the day trying to get everything organized again in between helping customers. It was such a horrible day, and to top it all off were open an hour later on Fridays so we got to deal with that as well. Then when I thought I was gonna be able to go home, I had to be audited and had a "surprise cash count" which took forever. By the time I left I had been at work for 11 hours and only had a 45 minute lunch break. I was ready to pull my hair out and come home and get in my jammies when I saw a package on my front porch as I arrived at home.

My mom had sent me a little "pre-christmas" package and it was the perfect ending to an otherwise absolutely rotten day. :) Here are some of the little trinkets she sent me...
First there was this sweet hand written note.. :) Even though I'm all grown up, I'll always love my Mom!!!♥
Inside the box were lots of little goodies! :) I got a pink Hello Kitty bag, Godiva chocolates and some pictures of my family back in Cali. Then there was even more cool stuff inside the bag!
Along with some beautiful snowflake ornaments, there were some gloves and beanies for my hubby and I. :) My mom also sent us Miracle on 34th Street, which has always been one of my favorite Christmas movies, along with a cute light up snowman and reindeer ornaments! I can't wait to add them to our tree and make it look even prettier. ♥

My mom didn't forget Tulip either, she sent her a little jacket that says, "Baby Its Cold Outside!" This was probably one of my favorite things she sent us, and I couldn't wait to put it on Tulip and see how cute it looked! :) Here's my favorite shot of her...she's my lil model doggy! lol
So after having a very bad day at work and coming home to an empty house since my hubby had duty, it was so heartwarming and lovely to come home to such an amazing care package from my Mom. I feel so lucky that we've gotten closer over the last year and it makes me really thankful to have a Mom who loves me enough to try so hard to cheer me up and make me smile, especially when things in life aren't going so well. So thank you Mom, and this post is dedicated to you. I love you and miss you bunches!!♥

I hope you can decide where to go for his deployment. if it was me, i would want to be with my family but it would be sad to have to leave your house and move everything again. Could you leave some stuff in storage maybe?
