New blog site!

Please check out my new blog site.


Pass it on if you want to or not. I hope that you get the enjoyment out of it that I hope to! ;-) I really do hope to! It is a reading and writing blog (hence the-two-Rs name! Writing is something that has been sitting right at the edge of my mind lately...you know, the part that wants to really do something, but you fear you may not be good at it or have time for it or it just may never happen? Yea, that place is where it sits. I don't know what will come of it because I am not very good at finding time everyday to do the things I really want to do. I want this to happen, mostly for me, but also for whoever sees my blog and gets a little bit of enjoyment from it. Just remember, I am not a professional writer, but if I don't try it, I guess I will never know if I am any good....right? Instead of dieting (which I should probably do, too) I have made this my New Year's resolution! I mean, if my daughter can turn into a vegetarian and continue with it for a full year (she's at her one year mark now) then I can keep up with a blog, right? We'll see! Wish me luck and visit often!

Current Read

One of my favorite past times is reading! One of things that I would love to do in my life is to write a book. Actually, I am putting myself out there by even saying anything about that dream of mine!! I have thinking about possibly starting a separate blog where I can actually post some writings. I want to see if I can actually keep up with this blog for a while before I commit myself to a writing blog! There might be more to come on that in the next few weeks!

Anyway, I wanted to let you guys in on some of the books I read. I love Danielle Steele, Nora Roberts, and others that are similar writers. Right now, I am reading Danielle Steele's book, "Amazing Grace". This book is about Sarah. Sarah is a stay at home mom that organizes charity events occasionally. She organizes an event for the NICU unit of the local hospital in San Francisco. The event takes place on the night of a horrible earthquake.
As I read through this one, I will keep you up-to-date! It is sure to be a great read! Anyone that would like to read it with me, Amazon.com is selling this one for as low as $5.11 at the following site: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0593056728/ref=dp_olp_1. You can also pick it up at Wal-Mart.
I hope that you will all join me in my little reading journey! It will be a challenge for me to read any book because I am in school full time and working full time and of course I love my computer! But, I will do my best to keep up! My goal is to start another reading blog soon so that I can post the ones I read and even maybe occasionally some of my writing. This is something that I have actually dreamed of for a while and I am tired of not doing the things I want to do. So, I am going to try. One of my favorite quotes is: "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." (Thomas Alva Edison). I don't want to give up just yet. I have been thinking about this for a while now and although it would be so easy to just say forget it, I don't want to say that just yet. If we can all just do one thing that we have put off because we though that we may not be able to accomplish it, then we might just see that we can succeed!

You're Gonna Miss This Moment

I know that I have not been very good about posting this year. I just can't seem to find the time these days. But, as 2008 leaves and 2009 is already here, I have missed not being able to post like my blogger friend (Pam), who coincidentally is much busier than I could ever even think of being and she still finds the devotion to her blog site. If you want to see what I mean, just check it out...http://www.pramom26.blogspot.com/. She is awesome and she needs to know that. I wish I had half the patience and love she has.

Onto my post....

This I will miss about 2008? Sure there are lots I suppose, like living in the United States, going to Wal Mart, knowing I will be able to understand what is being said. These are things I miss about being home. I miss my family. I miss Travis' family. I miss my friends, even though I still talk to them on a regular basis. It is funny what we take for granted in life. I remembered those things when we were here before and I remember those things now. Don't get me wrong, being in Germany is a gift that most never receive and we have been given the opportunity twice in less than 20 years. My son has been given the gift of seeing where he was born. This is a moment that he will never have to miss, because he has been given the opportunity to do something that we thought he would never have.

I will not miss my hubby being in Iraq. Hubby was there for 15 months and did not come back unscathed. Thankfully, he was not physically hurt in any way, but emotionally, he was and sometimes still is a wreck. You see, he lost a soldier under his watch and that was worse for him than if he had died. I will miss the feeling I had when he came home for the first time for R&R though. You know, that is such a sweet and intimate homecoming...much different than when they come home at the end. There's not the fanfare and glitter as there is when the entire group comes home...not that it's not exciting, just different.

I will miss my baby being in elementary school. Colin completed his 5th grade year in 2008. I don't have anymore babies. They are all growing up so fast. I will miss Haley soon enough as she will be a senior next year. Where did the time go? Thomas is coming up right behind her too.

I guess there are so many things that I miss about 2008, but there are so many things to look forward to in 2009 that I want to focus on. Hopefully, I will not miss any of those moments and will be able to record them here for you all to enjoy! Love you all and Happy 2009!
Happy New Year!!!
From the Travis Wewers Family!

Under Construction!

Hey guys, I know I haven't posted in a LONGGGG time, but I am currently trying to get back into the game! I am trying to figure out how to upload templates to our blog, but haven't been successful! I did it once, but can't seem to make it work now. Please bear with me! I promise to post more if you do!
