We’re Baaaaaack!

We’re back from our loooooong trip to see our soldier return from Iraq. I’m so glad to know he’s stateside! He’s got a cell and we can call him whenever we want! Well, I will give him some space as he’s going on a little trip with his buddies this weekend, but it’s nice to know I can call him!

Now we’re counting down to my husband’s R&R! It will be nice to have him home for a couple of weeks. I know he needs the break as he is working very hard in a high stress job. I am hoping to make this some real downtime for him so he feels refreshed when he needs to return.

I’ve already made a list of about 20 meals I think he’ll enjoy while he’s here. Other than that, I’m going to let him decide what, if anything, he wants to do while he’s home. I’m trying to get as much Christmas shopping done so that I don’t have to bother with it while he’s here.

Everyone is doing well other than my being stuck on eastern daylight savings time. I’ve been getting up at 0330 and unable to get back to sleep. It stinks, but eventually I’ll get straightened out!
