girlnboots, Enjoy Every minute!


Kim, sorry about your toe, but you're right it's getting to be funny (sorry ladies)

Miss,  I have it covered for $50 so I told her if she didn't get it, collect the money. :)


Barbara, sounds like a Wonderful Easter.

Thank you for all of the well wishes, and prayers for my BIL. I talked with my sis this morning, and she said he is much better this morning and got some much needed rest last night.  He has been sitting up in a chair looking out the window for about 2 hours this morning.  Got his tubes removed, and will be taking many, many, walks today.  He was chatting in the background.  They both sounded so much better.   

Kim, oh my goodness!  Bless your heart.  I have paranoia about hurting my feet, after last year.  My ankle is much better today, but going to keep this bandage on it (more for security for me) a few more days.  Hopefully will be back 100 % before long. 

Hubby said last night while we were both "doctoring" our wounds (my shin, his knee) that would could start a new reality tv show, "Bandage Wars" !  LOL! 

Blondie, hope she get her package soon!  I mailed a package to my daughter (2 hours away) over a week ago and she has not received it yet.  Mailed a package to my son and his wife to VA Beach the day after I mailed hers, and they got theirs in 2 days.  Go figure! 

I hope you all have a very blessed day.

Had a wonderful Easter with daughters and grandsons, skyped two hours with sailor on Saturday night and the weather couldn't have been nicer.  A beautiful stretch of five days of sun, warm, with not a drop of rain:)) 

Anyone have any luck using the lame plastic egg dippers you get these days?    They really stink.  Glad I saved a few of the metal ones through the years.

Maggs, lol, love the moth story. Congrats on Univ of MD!

T-lynn, There is just no explaining family sometimes.  We have similar issues too-bringing them up let to nowhere so maybe hubby is saving himself some grief. 
Prayers for your friend & glad hubby's mom is improving.
Eclipse sounds awesome-maybe our weather will co-operate for the next one.
The gummy experiment sounds right up the boys alley-so fun for them.

AntiM-sorry to hear about the spine, get well soon.

Blondie-hope that box gets located before all the chocolate melts-geez!

MyKid, confusing and frustrating for sure, hope they figure it out soon. Con't prayers for your oldest son.

Rhonda, we always feel better when our sailors are happy-good for him!

Laurie in WA-praying for Jonathan and his family.

Missmom- ouch, sorry to hear about the ankle-hope the pain subsides quickly.
Glad they made it home for Easter. Best medicine ever. Good luck to all with healing.

Kim, yea, visits all around- I'll toast to that!

Blm, good to hear from you. Glad the planning is going smoothly. Hard when our kids go through break-ups. I hate it, but it's a part of life they need to learn to deal with.  I am sure his weekend home was so good for him.  Hang in there.

girlnboots, hang in there and get as many last hugs and pics as possible!!

Welcome new moms.  Tell your sailors that the USO on base has free phone calls to the U.S.

I hear you Miss, my injuries are becoming a joke.  This morning I sprained a toe joint (don't ask).  My husband said "Are you limping"?; Me "no",  Him "Did you hurt yourself"?,  Me "no", Him "you ARE limping", Me "no I'm not"

I talked to my sailor last night.  He was up early to get his wife to Newark airport.  She should be in Sasebo by now.  He informed me that the navy is moving him to Peekskill, NY. He has only been at his current location for 3 months.

Susie, Glad to hear you heard from him.  communication can be off and on for them, if you have a e-mail or he has a FB just keep leaving messages, that way when they go off silence, he has lots of Love waiting on him and he'll know you were thinking of him.  It also helps guilt them into calling or sending you a message.  Please do not be afraid, they really do take good care of our sailors.  I know sometimes we hear scary stories and they are out there but remember there are many Good stories we never hear.  bad travels faster and more then good. (sad but true).  I agree with Maggs, send lots of boxes, snacks and games, new release movies....girl scout cookies are Always a big hit.  something from Home.


Miss, will continue the's hard dealing with pain everyday and hearing how it'll get better can be trying...especially when no one really knows...I've found an soft touch, sweet words go further, a back rub, a little sympathy, a warm drink, pillow placement, what can I do to make you more comfortable is better then asking are you comfortable, because hell no they're not!  lol  sometimes just a I'm praying or hand on head, hand...can help more then anything. a good movie can take they're minds off things....

Good Lord, all I could think was Another foot/ankle and then I read on  UGH

Prayers for the family whole lost a son.


my sailor texted me she never got her Easter box!  Postal Service told me it would be delivered 4/17 so where the H is it?!  I'm on the tracking thing.....not a happy Mama.  hard enuff not being able to communicate but when they're boxes don't arrive!  didn't have this much trouble during her 5 years of over seas duty!
