“It’s the final countdown!”

I am freaking out as I type these words! If I could just run around the block screaming without losing my personal confidence, I totally would. 😀

It’s possible that Jeremy could be home by the end of the week. Yes. THIS WEEK! It’s also possible that it’ll be more like early next week, but hey, it’s still a matter of days away!

soon and very soon he'll be home!

I’m trying to stay busy but I’m feeling pretty antsy. The house is clean but I know Jeremy could seriously care less. It could be a disaster and I doubt he’d care. I bought some amazing steaks to grill and I’ll do a grocery run with him in mind later in the week….but what else? I DUNNO! I feel like I’m shaking all over and no, that’s not all the coffee in my body.

Cooper knows it’s soon too and he is super ready. He keeps saying to me “I want my Daddy, Mommy”. I told him today, “Well, next week, you can have him!” It was super fun to say that to him!

This week, Cooper starts his swimming class at the “Y” and we have a fun trip to the zoo planned with my MOPS group. I think it’ll be the perfect distraction for all of us. Then I’m having some friends help me decorate the house and make signs and then…then, we wait! We wait for our super-exciting phone call. It won’t come until they are 24(ish) hours out. But OOOHHH! To get that phone call! YAY!

I don’t know what else to say right now…so I’m going to end with that. If you think of it, stick a “Welcome Home” card in the mail for Jeremy, would ya? I’ll keep a box of mail just for him and give it to him when I give him the presents I got for him.

National Dance Day 2010!

My favorite show is So You Think You Can Dance. I love, love, LOVE the show so much because it’s taught me to appreciate dance! I’ve always loved to watch people dance, but the criticism from the judges is so constructive and encouraging that I have learned things I never knew.

I have been watching the show for about 4 seasons now (I think) and I just can’t get enough of it! I saw that the show is promoting this new thing Nigel Lthygoe created called National Dance Day, which is July 31, by trying to get people to learn this “Nappy Tabs” routine. (Um, that’s Tabitha and Napoleon for all you non-show watchers.)The idea is to encourage people to just be healthy and get moving.

I watched the first part of the video and decided I should go to bed (it was approaching midnight, oiy) but, I really want to learn it! I did practice the first 3 parts. You know you wanna see it right? Here is the routine! Try it ok? It would be fun to see if we can video ourselves doing it and repost! EEEK! That makes me nervous. But how fun, right?
