2009 the Jetplanes are happy to see you go... Bring on a new decade!!
PEACE OUT 2009...
Mr. Jetplane left this morning to visit family in Illinois for a week. Another NYE without him...we've only spent 2 of them together :(
I couldn't take time off from work, since I took 2 weeks off around my mother's surgery.
I miss him already and I may (or may not) being eating Oreos this morning while working..yes I have to work this week...BOO.
I'll be back later on with the Jetplanes Holiday...
*FYI This is one of my favorite pictures of my hubby. Doesn't he look hot in suspenders and a bow tie...
I know that the Jetplanes will spend at least one holiday apart in the coming years and I gain courage from your strength and dedication. You are a true inspiration to me and my journey through my newly found military life.
AND FINALLY!!! WONDERFUL, FABULOUS NEWS!!
One of the the most wonderful and fabulous (yes I know I repeated it) girls in the entire world is engaged!!
Jill, are you reading?!? Wave to the readers Jill!! Readers wave back to Jill!!
She is engaged!! I'm so over the moon excited for her and Billy (I'm sorry Bill now that we graduated college...apologies Bill).
Congrats to them and may this make their holiday alittle more brighter.
Love you girl and miss you like a crazy person!!
I do apologize, the Jetplanes' lives have been a little crazy lately and my workload, well...my cup runneth over to the nth degree.
So what to blog about today on a day such a this...well music of course. I love music and have a pretty eclectic taste. But this song evens me out and I go into a very relaxed mode...hoping it will do the same to you.
I believe the 1st time I heard it was on 500 Days of Summer but I'm not sure. (FYI-Really liked that movie)
But then last night I heard it again on a Rhapsody commercial when the guy said "This reminds me of the song"...and it really did.
I love how music can change your mood, take you back in time, or just get your party started.
So for the lackluster posts lately, I promise I'll get better.
Enjoy this lil diddy for your morning jump start!!
#1. All I Want for Christmas by the one and only Mariah
I love this song and it automatically makes me want to watch Love Actually.
#2 The Christmas Song by Alvin and the Chipmunks
This song reminds me of my Grandmother's house. We would like to listen to this on her huge record player/sound system. I also sing this song to get on Mr. Jetplane's nerves... hahaha
if he will go with me to watch THIS!!
Lord help us when we have to pick baby names (which isn't happening right now)...
So these are some of the presents that we have receive thus far...Yes I know that is a box with an office chair, its for Mr. Jetplane from my parents. He has a horrible one upstairs in his man cave. I won't let him open any of them, even the ones from his mother, which he picked out.
I'm pretty sure one or more of the boxes have doggie treats in them the way Milo was interested in them...
Can't believe Christmas is Friday!! I wish we had our gas hooked up so we could have a fire in the fireplace on Christmas Eve...Yeah for our 1st Christmas in our first home... Last year Mr. Jetplane had knee surgery in Texas on 12/23 and I spent the next week taking care of him...this Christmas will be much better.
Well you can find there lazy butts on the couch...that is when dad's not home!!!
For those of you keeping score - Mrs. Jetplane 0 Mouse 2.
To be completely honest, I think this is a new mouse, we were mouse free for 2 months or so. We live out in the country and its not uncommon for mice around here we've been told. I cleaned out pantry and didn't find any holes where he could be coming in. I think he might be coming in from the laundry room, but still haven't figured out where...
See the lil pug is a pilot?
This is a poster which comes from www.obeythepurebreed.com which is a hilarious site full of great Pug and other breed paraphernalia. Be sure to check it out, whether your a pug lover or not, its funny and they sell great gifts for your pug or any fellow pug lovers out there.
Happy Pug Friday!

Thank you in advance for your help.
Its been a rough week for us... I just got back on Sunday afternoon and he's been crazy busy with flying every day this week. Flying in a jet, for those that don't know, is extremely tough on your body, especially when you aren't used to pulling that many g's, on a regular basis. He hadn't actually flown in almost a year.
So as a side effect, he's been dealing with some sickness issues. He's on the patch now for this, but some of the guys are giving him a hard time... asking him if he's grown boobs yet....with his hormone patch... I couldn't help but die laughing when he tell me that...
He said, "Shut Up! Its not funny!"
I said "Oh yes it is...and you know it!"
Then he said..."Yeah it is really funny!"
I assured him..."Don't worry I'm sure that guy says that to every single person that gets one...Just put that one in your back pocket and you can use it in a couple of years to someone else."
Wish him luck today!!
While in STL I stayed with my cousin a couple of nights. This is her dog Simon...he hates me. He growled at me the entire time. I attempted to win his affection with food...it kinda worked but not really... The entire time there I sang to him... "My name is Simon...and I like to do drawings..." Bonus points if you know what that is from...he was named after that character...While out grocery shopping with my cousin we stopped off at the petstore since they were having adoptions. I met this lil guy, he was missing a toe on one of his paws. He was the calmest doggie ever. I fell in love with him. I texted the Mr... he said NO WAY... I almost cried when we had to leave...
After almost a week in the hospital, Mama Jetplane was released and we headed home to Southern Illinois where my family resides.
Since I was around, I got to attend my college roomie's baby shower. It was so great to see her and my other roomie from college. Miss those girls so much.
And attended an Ugly Sweater Party at a friend's house... I was really upset because my sweater was not ugly enough. I didn't know about the party and had to run to the Dollar General for a sweatshirt. But hey I still had a great time...
I became even sadder when my antler broke...
While at home I also got to meet up with 2 other wonderful bloggers... We had a great time together, and figured out that we literally know TONS of the same people...it is such a small world after all. Is that good or bad???
I'm home in North Carolina..FINALLY.
I promise to give you a full recap of the past 2 weeks but right now, I'm digging...digging myself out of the huge ass hole I've dug myself in at work.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers over the past 2 weeks, they've been felt and appreciated more than you'll ever know. And to the lovely bloggers that I finally got to meet in person...all 4 of them, yes 4, I got to meet 4...are you jealous??? Thank you. You all are just a fabulous as I had imagined you would be.
Bigger NEWS! Mr. Jetplane's first flight in the jet will be today, actually he might be in it as I type right now! He left at 5am this morning.
Honestly...you all are going to need to pray for my sanity more than his safety! Who wants to gamble about whether or not he's going to throw up...Ha Ha... He hasn't pulled that many g's for almost a year now... I have a feeling he's going to be dry heaving like...well, its too early to be discussing it.
Have a great Monday...
I know this is a recycled picture, but its one of my favorites... miss my lil monkey...
