Monday, July 30, 2007

Oh what do I write about today? I got home Friday afternoon, went straight to bed. No, I didn't go to sleep, but just relaxed. Slept late Saturday. Up Sunday morning, off to church. Home after church, nap. Up from nap, packed and headed back to Pulaski.

I did not touch Matt's room. The bed is still unmade, there is still dirty cloths on the floor, dirty cups on the dresser and night stand. I think maybe I will have to clean that room this weekend.

It's been exactly one week since I have seen or talked Matt. I bought his birthday card last night. I hope to have his mailing address today or tomorrow so I can send it off. His 18th birthday is Thursday, August 2. I know he is doing fine.

The audit is this week at work. Third party auditor was here this morning at 8:00 am and will be leaving tomorrow. I'll be so glad when this week is over. I won't have to make these weekly trips back to Pulaski after this week. Thank god! I will have to make them monthly though.

I will try to post more tonight from the hotel.

Proudly Brought to You by Dixie 10:35 PM

I give you LOTS of credit for being able to live in a hotel for as long as you have!

I don't think I could do it...glad to hear your trips will be fewer soon!

KISSES sugarbaby

Hopefully this place will look different in the next few days

I doubt you could stand to leave it for that long but I betcha if you left Matt's room the way it is until he came home on leave, the first thing he'd do is clean it up as he wouldn't be able to stand the mess! If the Marines don't make him more of a neat-nik, I don't know who could!

Glad to hear this is your last full week in Pulaski. I bet you miss home when you're away!

Now just look at that - you've made it through one week of boot camp and so has your recruit.

Love ya!

I couldn't handle your grueling routine. Maybe several years ago but not now! It wears me out just reading about it. Yikes! I bet you'll be thrilled to stick with a monthly agenda.
I really loved Linda's comment! And Travis', too. You've got some great friends.
