Hey Girlfriend, You've got one precious week with your hubby before he heads "Over There".....so PLEASE tell us how we can pray for you.... what can we do to support you, your sweet boys, or your hubby?

Can we "adopt" him? Can we send him stuff, like with "Soldiers Angels"? (Does that organization let us pick our soldier?) :?:

WE WANNA BE HERE FOR YOU!! :D

I think prayers for my mental state would be nice. :?

You know it is funny, I really don't feel the impact that he is leaving until he waves from the cockpit and takes off. That is when it sets in. He won't be gone that long really, it's just that it is over Christmas, and the region he is going to, that will make it extra hard.

Thank you so much Maureen for thinking of us. It means a lot to me.

Oh, Vicky, I has no idea that your hubby was leaving for service! I am sorry, what rotten timing too!
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers and please call me any time you get lonely and just want to chat.
My husband's father was in the Air Force and he has told me many times that it was his mother who made the real sacrifices...although I know that your husband is giving everything he can to his country and we are proud of him...we are also proud of you and the sacrifices you and your family will endure.
Blessings to you all!

Initially, I wasn't too worried about Steve's deployment. But now, you guys are starting to scare me! :lol: :lol:

Steve is a pilot in the Air Force Reserve and he will be commanding a group of Air Refueling Jets. (and the people that go along with them, :wink: )

Thank you all for keeping my family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you Jac for your invitation to call. :D When Steve is gone I am usually too exhausted to get lonely but often find I need some adult conversation. :wink:

Vicky, I want you to know that I am also here for you if you need me. I'll be praying for your husband and you and your family at this time. My son-in-law is serving 6 mos in Iraq and he has 3 young children at home. It is so hard on the families when daddy is ripped from them. You have to have lots of admiration for what these men and women do for their country. God Bless them all :!: :!:

PROZAC! :lol:

Well it has been an interesting week. The roof is leaking, the pool is overflowing, the leaves are falling big time and making a huge mess. All this in addition to trying to navigate the best school option for my youngest, maintain the "home", kids, dogs etc. We all have colds. Oh yeah, I hear Christmas is coming. AAAAAAHHHHHH!

Aren't you glad you asked. :lol:

All kidding aside, we are doing as well as can be expected I think. I don't have a lot of time for fun activities, like visiting here anymore, but I try to check in when I can.

Thank you so much for thinking of us. How is Toby doing my the way?

geez, Vicky! Anything else? :roll:

Is today the day Steve takes off? or was it last week? Sorry I've lost track of time.

I told John about Steve's AF job...as expected his answer was "Cool."
(John's a private pilot, and works for Jeppesen)

Praying for you girlfriend, and your boys too....

I got a call from Steve today. It appears he is fairing worse than we are. :shock: First night there he received a poisonous spider bite on his upper thigh and yesterday he split his knee, same leg, and required three stitches.

It has stopped raining so I don't have water running into my house right now. Hopefully the roof guy will make it back out before the next storm. I got my little oddball :wink: enrolled in a home study program that his school district offers, that is a very good thing. Things are looking up......

LeeBeth, has Toby been to see the specialist yet? I was just wondering what they thought.

Thank you both for thinking of me. I have had a bit of a set back. A little over a week ago I had to visit my doctor to be treated for stress/anxiety related issues. :( I guess I found my stress threshold. :? That whole episode was very scary. I am feeling pretty good these days but still not quite right, if you know what I mean.

Steve is doing good too. I think he loves the challenge.

Jett on the other hand, thinks she is a cocker spaniel and can fit on my lap along with the other two cockers! :shock: I have been trying to spend more cuddle time with the cockers since their daddy is gone but Jett gets a little jealous I think. Anyway she has decided she can cuddle just as good as they can. If it is just Jett and me she prefers to be close but not ON me. :lol:

I can imagine with all that was and is going on, you would have hit your stress level now. Glad to hear that you feeling a bit better these days.

I don't know why thses big doodles think they can fit in your lap. Phantom is our lap-a-doodle. He thinks he can fit, but it doesn't work like it used to..

Hope you feel all well soon, and Happy Holidays to you and your family, and pretty miss Jett.
