You bet I do. ALL over the house. When to dollar store last night burning all day since 4:00 a.m. call my daughter and mom told them to burn blue candle today for GOOD LUCK! and pray. I hope they call soon!!!!!!! Maybe tommorrow?
I hope the division gets it together. I got a letter from my son today. He said a lot of Rc not doing what they are suppose to and they keep threating to hold them back from Graduation. He said he has passed everything but worrie about battle station yet did not know a date.
His spirits were up and he seemed very determined to do whatever it takes to GRaduation.
He is looking forward to A school so I know he is settling in Hopefully they will be sailors soon.
It seems like the days are dragging maybe just because I hear things will be getting harder for them. Has your hubbby told you when their battlestation will be? I hope it not on my son's Birthday he will be turning 20 in there. That would be a B'day to remember for sure. Ha, Ha Do you have any idea if their division has won any flags?
Oh my gosh--you went out on the Sear's Tower ledge. How scary was it?
