Flowers and chocolate

The first thing Bill and I did when we got on post Sunday night was to drive past our old house to see if the tulips were still there. They were, to my joy.

After class today, I suggested we walk down the street to see an old neighbor. I might stop by our old house to see if the residents are enjoying their blooms.

This school is keeping us busy, but the information is great. I’m glad I have come. But, of all the best laid plans, the girl I lined up to watch my younger children while my mom took the boys to baseball blew me off. I’m trying not to be really angry.

I owe my mom big time, too. I’ll have to send her for a facial or a pedicure or something. She’ll probably be happy just to go home.

Somewhat guiltily I confessed to my husband that I don’t miss the kids. Not yet. Maybe it’s because I’m so busy. If I were sitting on a beach with nothing to do, I might pine for them. But for now, I’m just enjoying going for a run (walk) with my husband and having periods of quiet. No interruptions. No crying. No bottoms that need to be wiped.

Today we’re doing Myers-Briggs personality tests. Guess my type and the person who gets closest will win some Godiva chocolate. Since I’m not home, I’ll keep this offer open until Sunday the 18th. If there are multiple people who get it right, I’ll do a drawing.

  1. If I'm doing this correctly, ISTP.

  3. Ok, I'll play. Based on the little I actually know of you from reading your blog and meeting you in person once, I would guess you are an ENTJ.

    Although, I think you may be more of an introvert naturally, years as a military wife has forced you to be more extroverted for survival 🙂

    Enjoy your week off! The kids will be fine. I'll say some prayers for your mom.

  4. My best guess is INFP.

  5. I'm so jealous that you are seeing Rachel! Enjoy your time away!

    I couldn't edit my comment, but I should have typed INTJ as your personality type.

  6. ENTJ. Glad you're enjoying yourself!!

  7. ISTJ.

    It takes me several days before I start missing my kids too.

    Enjoy it!

  8. I am going to say ESTJ.
    Enjoy your freedom. I went house-hunting this past week (well, 3 days) by myself and it was lovely not having someone interrupting me constantly. It was the first time I had been away from them since I only had 3 (and I was 7mo pregnant at the time).

  9. I…N?…TJ.

    Just my guess. Though someone's already guessed it…

  11. INTJ. 🙂 But I still have Godiva chocolates from Valentine's Day, so if I'm right, don't put my name in the hat.

  12. I think Jenn's right with INTJ.

  13. I haven't looked at anyone else's to see if we're all on the same track, but I'll say

    Sounds like a great week courtesy of the army!

  14. This seems to be a very popular choice, but I also (independently) came to the conclusion that you are an INTJ. And I'm guessing Bill is an ESTP. Am I close???

  15. I'm thinking ISTJ. We'll see…
