LOL!!! yeah i got a call... he had me dying laughing at all the stuff he was talking about! his div earned a call! And I am beyond ready im sure that last week i will be up all night from being so anxious :D did u get ur pink scarf yet??
I hate getting sick. Ugh. Yuk. Since we had our flu shots, at least we won't get that. BTW, has you mother in law joined the SF group yet?
Or maybe she would rather just get the info from you.
My younger son attended the United States Military Academy, West Point (next to Highland Falls, NY) for two years but he is totally
incompatible with the military. He is studying what he wants now and
would like to make tons on of money in the future. He like intelligent
women who look like Jessica Alba or Reese Witherspoon or the girl in
Smallville (what an idiot! but he is young). He plays the guitar and
sax. A wonderful golfer. Excellent chess player. He has even learned to
cook a few dishes (really into eating healthy and running). Unlike his
mother, he eats and stays skinny - just under 5'11" and 150 lbs (but has
to keep his calorie intact up to stay at that). Tell your friend to
never mind him because the marriage arrangement comes with a great MIL
who will treat her like a princess :) Going back to bed. Night night.
My sailor is home! But spending time with his girlfriend which is OK. Hope he pops the big question. :) Younger son (home from college) gave me his cold. He is 22 studying petroleum engineering at the University of Oklahoma. Don't hesitate to introduce to any hot women you may know in OK. How are you holding up?
