ch ch ch ha ha ha It's Friday the 13th y'all

So, Jerry got stationed in Savannah, Georgia. That's where we are now and have been for 6 weeks. I'm trying to keep my head up, but I miss my house. I'm devastated and would give anything to move back home. I love Jerry so I'm going to follow wherever his job takes us. 

I'm only 4-4.5hours away from home. I just rented out my house to a nice couple with baby. Thankfully my bestie, Wendy, who lives a few houses down, helped me by showing the house for me and checking up on it. I'm driving up tomorrow to get rent and deposits and have them sign the lease. I was originally going to use a property manager, but they are super anal about everything and take too much money.  

I doubt we'll ever be able to move back there. I'm waiting for the property value to go up. They're building a loop that makes travel a lot easier. One of the on ramps/exits is like 30 seconds from my subdivision, but far enough away to not hear the traffic. It just opened up, but they have a lot more road to build. It will cut travel time in half. I think it said it'll be totally done in 2 more years. 

So, now I'm a landlord. pray for me. lol. 

I had Jerry for a month, now he's gone for 2 months. He's missing Christmas. :( It's okay, he was here for Thanksgiving and for our 7 year anniversary.

 If he passes this training, he'll likely go overseas for a year. If he fails, then he'll be re-stationed to the next nearest post, which is an hour from here. And it's the post that I really wanted other than Ft Bragg. Since I can't go home, I don't really care where we go though.

Im not searching the sky for a reason to live 'cause I found beauty right here & the passion to give

Jerry and I got married! It only took 6.5yrs lol. He joined the Army. He's at basic training right now. I get to go visit him soon for his graduation, then he goes off to job training. Jocelyn and I miss him like crazy. 

Over 3 years No Contact with Joyce. woohoo. She's still sending crap. Even sent $100 bill with my name written all over it. I put it in Jocelyns piggy bank to go towards what she stole from it. Then she sent me a box of family photos. She cut out her face from all the photos. Psycho.

Wes and I don't really talk. He does ask every so often when he can sign his rights away. It's going to take some time, Jerry has to be present to adopt her. 

Jocelyns great. She's been on the A/B honor roll at school.

So, it's been a year and a half since I last posted. Who even reads this anymore? Stalkers?

Jerry and I just celebrated 6 years together. woohoo!  We got engaged last year. No set wedding date yet, we still have to get some ducks in a row.

Last year (I think August or September, but don't quote me on it) Jerry decided he wanted to join the Marines. He was supposed to go to boot camp November of last year, but they changed their tattoo standards. He's been spending the past year getting part of a tattoo removed because it's too close to his wrist. His next treatment is in a couple weeks. It's mostly gone, so hopefully he'll be off to boot camp soon. He ages out in May, then his only option is to go Army. I would rather he go Army so he can be stationed here and we can stay in our house. I really don't want to rent it out or sell it. We'll see how things play out.

Corey Haim died this morning.... I'm so sad.

I wish all my movies were here... I feel like watching some Double-O kid, lost boys, or license to drive... maybe dream a little dream. :(

My moms father was born in 1877. I've been doing a family history thing for Jocleyn so she knows where she comes from. I'm finding some interesting things...
