50% less worry

Hunter is out of Iraq, hence 50% less worry. I don't stop worrying until he's back in my arms. Which could be in a few days.

Gentle Reader, the official Freak Out has begun!!! I still have a bit of cleaning to do (laundry, vacuum, steam clean the carpet in the dining room) as well as mani/pedi, hair color, groceries but the rest of the house is clean & our outfits have been picked out .

Freaking Out!

Back in March 2007 this day seemed as if it never would come. It was just so far in the future. But it's almost here now. So as a result there isn't much knitting going on, there isn't much of anything going on other than me constantly looking at the calendar & counting days.

Thank you for the prayers, love & support that you have shown me & my family these past 14 months. They mean a lot & are appreciated more than you will ever ever know!

You have made more progress than I. I have no idea what we're going to wear, and I certainly don't have time for hair-cut appointments. HA! I did make some cleaning progress today though. I think I've knitted 3 rows in a weeks time!

Yea, Laurie! I know you and WeeOne can hardly wait. I don't know if you know Tiffany from the knitting group, but her husband came home late last week. She (and Shelby, her four-year-old) brought him by Panera tonight just to show him off to the group. I don't even think she brought any yarn! But she had Jay, and that was better than yarn.
