Friday the 13th...

There is no MilSpouse Friday Fill In today, but I don't have the brainpower to answer even five simple questions. I am trying to get a house, two cars, a 1/2 acre yard and six kids ready for R&R (not to mention the work I need to do on myself!). I have spent the last week month threatening my children that dad will run all the way back to Iraq if he walks into the house looking like this.

I am also trying to get caught up on *work*, so that I don't have to worry about anything for two whole weeks and just enjoy the Soldier being here.

*If* the Army manages to get him home in a decent time frame (i.e. not sit in Ireland for a week), he should make it home in time for a dance recital, a 10th birthday and a high-school graduation. It is going to be crazy...I just hope we both survive. And I pray that when we have to put him back on the plane, I won't lose it at the airport.

I will try and post a time or two when he is home, but no promises. I will keep putting free Kindle books on my Facebook page as I find them.

I am off to the shop to have my car aligned and the oil changed, so that I can prove I did it at least once while the Soldier was gone.

Have a blessed weekend! I hope you have some sunshine like we do!

Linking up with Jenn at Keeping Up With the Bowens for today's MilSpouse Weekly Round Up.



  1. What a busy, busy life! The end of the school year for us is the busiest, too. Crazy how we try to catch up on things before summer vacation arrives.

    I'm happy to hear that your husband is on his way home. You and your children must be ecstatic. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Yippie for you, I love homecomings! The "down to the wire" waiting drives me crazy though, LOL, and getting everything ready... But it's great when their home!
