One thing I was really looking forward to this winter was Sundays with my dad. A few years ago we introduced him to Fantasy Football. Of course he is hooked just as much as we are. So every Sunday since I got home on September 16th we have sat in our recliners with our laptops on our laps devoting the day to football and our fantasy teams. Well, today Fantasy comes to an end. But not before crowning 2 Superbowl Champs in the Mills house!! Dad and I each won our leagues. How cool is that? Devotion pays off! Ok, a good draft and some really good luck helps too! Our Sundays won't end as we still have the playoffs to enjoy together. Football Sundays have been our special thing together and I cherish every moment of them.

White Nights and Hell's Kitchen #1!

Queen of The Boys Club

As of today I am the 2007 Fantasy Football Champion! Yeah for me! I will be anxiously awaiting my winnings so I can spend them wisely on a new Coach bag! Isn't that what all Superbowl Champs want?

Promo Info Night

I am actually enjoying posting about something good for a change! Here is Greg, the night they informed him of the selection. It is so weird to see a leaf on his collar! I'd like everyone to take notice of the vacuum in the background! No, he did not take ours over there! haha

O Four!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Greg made MAJOR (O-4)!I have yet to talk to him, but he left a message and I double checked the list on the AFPC website so I could see it for myself! It probably won't be until this time next year when he pins it on, but nonetheless we are so proud. It seems like yesterday when I went to visit him at basic training when he was a Private First Class in the Army. That was 12 and a half years ago. He has come so far and earned every minute of it! So congrats to Greg and all our friends who also found out today!

They Keep Me Sane

I thought I would post a picture of my girls here. Many of you constantly hear me talk about Alisha (left) and Amy (right), so I thought you might like to put a face with a name. I've been so fortunate to have great friends at home that keep me sane while Greg is gone, that will listen to me complain and tell me the truth when I need to hear it! Yesterday, Alisha and I drove to Richmond to do a cookie exchange with Amy and some of her family and work friends. It was fun, but too short of a visit. I'm getting spoiled being able to hang out with them so much! Hopefully, they will make it to Ohio in 2008 (hint, hint)!Thank you both for being you,LITP!

Status of My Goals

As many of you know I set a few goals for myself during this deployment. Since we are halfway through I thought I would check in and let you know where I am. This might be a long post.

Goal #1- To run a 5K. CHECK! I am still running but I have started a new 5K program over at a faster pace. Dad said I look thinner so maybe it is paying off?

Goal #2- To read each night. Well I have finished 5 books. All chic lit but I love them. I am on my 6th book now. Greg and I have really tried to implement reading more into our daily life in Ohio. For some reason, TiVo always wins out. That will change when he returns.

Goal #3- To educate myself on adoption. This is probably the most interesting goal. I have attended two adoption conferences here in Virginia. One was a crash course into all the different types of adoption. This conference was great because I came out with an idea of what I would and wouldn't be comfortable with. The last seminar was strictly about Private Adoption. This is when you hire a lawyer and do not use an agency. The adoptive couple also does all of its own advertising. Surprisingly this is the route I feel the most drawn to. Maybe it is because you have more control over this type of adoption than the other options. However, with private adoption you do talk to and get to know the birth mother. Not sure how either of us feel about that situation. I have contacted an adoption attorney in Ohio and will look into agencies there also. Still more to learn and decide.

So there I am. Two months left. Please lets get through December and the holidays and then I think it might be downhill from there!
