Monday

The hubby should be arriving from Kuwait late Monday night if all goes well and they get the flight they are supposed to. The kids are excited and hubby is excited to get to eat real food instead of chow hall food. He is very lucky this tour was cut short. This same thing happened to him years ago when he went to Albania. He was supposed to be gone for 6 months and he was only gone 1 month. I guess he just gets lucky when it comes to these tours. I hope it stays that way, but what are the odds. You all know I hate the number 3 and the next tour would be the dreaded 3. Apparently whomever he ends up with will be deploying sometime in the next year. I just hope it isn't too soon. It will suck to have to start the year over again within the next few months. So that's the news for today. Thanks for all of your well wishes.

I'm so glad he's coming home, Christina. I don't know what the odds are but it would be wonderful if he never had to go back over there.

I'm sure the kids are so excited they can't stand it and I'm betting you're planning one of his favorites for dinner. I surely would be! I'll be thinking about you Monday evening.

My husband is coming home today after four DAYS and I'm excited. So happy for you! Thanks for your encouraging words over the past few months. Sorry I don't get over here as often as I'd like - but I appreciate all you are doing and your words mean so much!

How exciting, Christina, that he gets to come home early. Even though I'm Canadian I say thank you to him and your family for making such sacrifices.
