Lyn these pictures are for you. I do hope that these pictures bring back good memories for you! Please do not get homesick, but instead think about this young lady who got to see your home country.
I do have one question for you. What in the heck do you put in that little car? I think my 100 pounds of dog food weight more then the car does! LOL Amber wants a little car like that.
Yesterday I just hung out around here. I did run to wal mart to get a few things, but other then that I did nothing yesterday. It was so nice to just sit and chill with Rusty.
Amber got my gastro bug. So she is notfeeling all that great. I just love sharing with my children.
Today I am going to get some sewing done. I have 2 quilts and some pet quilts that need get done.
I have been chatting with another j lander (Betty) and we are going to meet for lunch once Nikki gets back and get's settled in.
So Betty asked me if I really owned a Burka. I told her yes, and I said that I would wear it to lunch so that way she would be able to know it is me! Betty said that she will have her camera ready for me.
Now you be wondering why I even have a Burka. Well it belonged to my late mother in law. I have been wanting to wear it for a while, but I have just never had a reason to wear it. I have put the Burka on several times and I must say that the women who have to wear it must be smoldering under it!
Nikki should be packing up to start her trip home. Nikki should be back at the church around 10 p.m.. I can't wait to see her and to give her a hug.
As much as my children drive me nuts I am so proud of all of them.
One of the marines should be coming home this week. I need to go get a big box and make a welcome home banner. I will be standing there up at March waving our banner and our flags. I know that it is not much, but I don't know how else to say thank you for a job well done.
While one Marine is coming home another one just left yesterday.
I know that life comes in cycles, but I am really sick of seeing my Marines leave. I am sick of this war. I am sick of saying goodbye. But until they all come home I will keep the candle burning for them.
I better go get my day started.
