Ok so we're there, this is it, after today I will not have to do this on my own anymore, or well until the next deployment...but I'm not focusing on THAT..I'm focusing on now. My stomach is in absolute knots! I was sick on Sunday, the same virus the kids and I had 2 weeks ago, and I woke up Sunday morning with horrible stomach cramps, vomiting, the whole shebang. Gross, miserable, and completely undesirable, oh yeah and lets throw in a good slice of self pity too! But yesterday I felt better and today I'm 100%, now it's just nerves! I'm so ready for this deployment to be over.

We're finishing up the last few things to do here, and if it gets done we'll head to the pool, if not this evening we'll just take a walk to the lake on post and feed the monsterous fish (seriously they're insanely HUGE...they could totally eat Emma..I know you think I exaggerate, but if you could only see these fish!). I really hope we can go swimming, it'd be such a great distraction.

Oh speaking of fish, I bought new fish for our tank. A couple months ago Jackson added a dishwashing tablet to the tank, fish don't like them..shocking huh! Yeah, so after refusing to buy anymore, until I felt confident that Jack understood that the tank is absolutely OFF limits to him, I bought more fish. When Chad comes home we might buy a few more, but not many more...I'm thinking 5 to 10 more. There's about 15 in there right now.

Ok, I have to get off of here and get busy finishing my bedroom!

God Bless

I hope that your nerves settle down a bit & that you get everything done you need to before Chad gets home.
Praying for safety.

I'm so excited for you to have Chad come home!

We used to go boating on a river that was next to a nuclear power plant. You should have seen the size of those fish! LOL
