Eventuality....

So I'm thinking ... E ... what begins with "E" that is happening in my life right now. I hit the thesaurus and wa-laa ... EVENTUALITY

Nouns] eventuality, event, occurrence, incident, affair, matter, thing, episode, happening, proceeding, contingency, juncture, experience, fact; matter of fact; naked fact; bare facts, just the facts; phenomenon; advent.

Yep, all of the above and then some, if that could be. It seems like there are so many life happenings right now yet really there is only one ... Big Jake leaving for the Marine Corps on Sunday. Who would have thought? When he was a little kid he always said he 'never' join the Marines.


I have recently found through the grapevine a really great scrapbooking community. So many creative souls, artists, and fun loving individuals. Their collective work is amazing.

And you know, I just really don't feel like 'blogging' today. My mind is so full of thoughts of Jake and just this major life 'event'. I'm trying to focus on work, but am finding it difficult. Just going through the motions.

Where is Jake going to boot camp? Paris Island or in California? My husband did 20 years in the Marine Corps and did his boot camp at Paris Island many years ago.
