This past week has been pretty rough. It was another week of not being able to talk to you dad. Him being gone is bad, but not even being able to talk or send a quick text is the worst! Luckily, I finally got to talk to him on the phone on Saturday! And now, we're on the last week of him being gone...we can do it! I'm very excited that they are letting us meet our soldiers at the air field when their plane lands. They're trying to make this experience as close as possible to a real deployment. I know it's going to be exciting and emotional, but I can't imagine how it will be after NINE months instead of just one! AND, when he gets back from Afghanistan, he'll be meeting you for the first time!!! Better start stocking up on Kleenex now! We're still not sure what day he's coming back...they won't let us know until basically the last minute, but I'm sure the next few days will go by quickly. I've still got to do some last minute cleaning, go shopping for a few of Dad's favorite things (I promised I'd make him Beef Wellington for dinner when he got back!), and maybe start working on another project or two. So far, I've made two potholders, a blanket, a bag, and a crocheted scarf...I even did a very little bit of scrapbooking. I think I've turned into a craftaholic!
Anyway, I guess that's all for this week.
Oh, apparently you're about the size of a mango:
