We did it!!!! We survived many tears of disappointment from not hearing from our kids. OMG!!! How wonderful it was to hear VOICES!!!! My daughter was in good spirits trying to get over a cold. The room temps are kept at 72 degrees indoors getting plenty of sleep, she put my worries at ease.
Again, she mentioned that the girls get along great and they all understand there are good days and bad days (mood swings) among the girls. The guys and girls refer themselves as brothers and sisters. They get along great!!!
My computer crashed the other day, I was freaken out not having contact with you ladies. My sister let me borrow her old computer tower, it working again. HOOOOOOOOOOOO YAAAAAAAAAA!!
Question: My brother will complete the logo this Saturday. I'm not sure, if I send this as an attachment through this site would you be able to print??? Or you can email me your private email address and send it off to you that way. Your welcome to use the logo how ever you like. It's our 002-907 division logo!!! YAY!!
Let me know... Thank you for being part of my family!!
Hey everyone! I was so excited to hear from my husband on Tuesday night (i was babysitting- haha) anyways, he sounded good and I've gotten a couple of letters from him, too. I'm so glad we have all heard from our loved ones on Ship 02 Div 907! he said that he is in the flag performance div so they will march out with flags on 1-7-11!
My parents are going to PIR with me and we are booking a suite at the Residence Inn by Marriott, Chicago Waukegan hotel. It makes sense because we can share a suite since my hubby won't be able to stay with us overnight :(
anyways I'm very excited to meet everyone- the support we all have on this site is amazing! Thank you all for your goodness and generosity
