Just a few

Sorry I haven't been around much. Oh my... since I got back from vacation everything has been turned upside down, inside out, around and around and around...

First of all, the company that I work for filed for Chapter 13 for the second time in 4 years... Yeppers... sure enough did. We are not for sure from one day to the next if our jobs are safe or not. So.... it's go with the flow.

They have also been doing some reorganizations and guess what... HR Manager was let go. Guess who is doing the HR job and HER job.... Yeppers... you guess it again... ME!!! Of course no more pay... looking for another job....

On a brighter note, I started back to school 3 weeks ago. I'm working on my Associate in IT Technology/Networking. I'm doing this online through the University of Phoenix. So far.... so good.

Matt deployed this past Tuesday. I guess I should have let you know that he wasn't playing in the sand box but he is deployed overseas. I can't tell you where he is but all I can say is Hurricane Gustav missed where he is stationed but Hurricane Hanna may hit them. Since
Gustav was heading that way, they were grounded in Jacksonville, FL for a few days... he called last night to say they were there. He also gave me a list of things he wants me to send him. Looks like I'll be doing a little shopping this next week.

If anybody wants his mailing address to send letters, e-mail me and I'll send it to you.

Signing off for now. I'll try and get around to everyones blog again soon. I miss y'all so much.

Being a military spouse is hard work...but it's a life I chose a long time ago....I have children...that I love more then anything on Earth, much like many mothers I held them as babies, when the fell as toddlers, when they came home from school hurt over something that was said to them, when they were excited about something that they wanted to share.

I look at each of them with great pride and joy, ah, my life's achievements in living form and I wonder, how does a mother, like my mother-in-law, like you....watch her babies go off and fight our Nation's Wars? It is a far harder job to do what you do, then what I do....and for that I can never tell you what a honor it is to meet military mothers. I give my heart felt thanks to your son and to you. To him for defending my right to freedom and for you standing behind him as he does it.

I wish you well with school and hope things brighten up with your job outlook.

Happy Labor Day.

I went and signed the petition for reduction in price for military flights. We have a grandson in the Air Force, who is deployed every two months to fly over the middle east to decode Arabic messages. He is not allowed to tell us what country the base is in over in the big sandbox, but when in the states, he is stationed at a Strategic Air Command Base. We are proud to have him serve, but sorry that he was so smart that they sent him to The Presidio to learn Arabic. If they get shot down, they have to destroy their plane and it's contents immediately. Most people don't know how amazing our young people in service really are! Thank you Matt for serving.

Best wishes for everything you've got going on.

Many thanks to you all for your family's service to our country. It's an honor to have you as part of our extended family.

PS Found you from Sarge Charlie :)

Dixie - it's been so long since I've come over and I apologize!
Faith is what it's all about. I'm at a loss but what I want to say is "Thanks," to Matt and to you! My grandson is stationed in Okinawa and for the moment, my daughter is handling everything quite well and very proudly.
I'm proud of young men like Matt, Rob, Aero and all the rest of them!!!
