Comment by Kim (Proud Mom of Sailor) yesterday

Hi T-Lynn,  there are two of us Kim's.  My has not had his surgery yet the other Kim is the that had their sailor re-up.  It can be confusing.  We are still waiting to find out when the surgery will be. 

While we were in San Diego, we ate at The Fish Market restaurant.  It's right next to the USS Midway.  It was right on the water and the food was awesome.

Welcome Aboard New Moms. And I love to see that you all have been Jumping into the Water. For teh new moms - that means sharing and talking and talking and talking !!! I had a wonderful read of 8 pages to get caught up !!!! Thanks you

Maggs- how is teh Squirrel? How cute of your daughter - the coloring book.

 Kim - congrats on son re-upping. I agree - I would like to be there. but I must of miss something - how was teh surgery?

Blondie - so glad to see you did not float away with the flood. sorry about Virginia though

AntiM - I remember you sharing about those vending machines a while back.

And I am so happy to hear that a sailor is coming home to visit and address' were found to send packages. When my sailor was there - he too would not call or email often. He was homesick. But then he changed and loved getting packages and calling us. I believe it was the need to have long johns that changed the feeling of not wanting package to WANTING them now. any extra stuff i sent - he shared with his mates. then he would call to chat and forget he was 13 hours ahead! So at 2 AM my time , I was chatting away. Hope this is what happens for the new moms soon.

i agree - those packages we send are out navy moms' theropy .

I'm going to have to get back in teh groove of sending packages. Sailor has a new assignment - back to Japan - Sasebo. This will be later on - but he is happy to be going back.

Today - marks just 30 days before my hubby and I will be visiting our sailor in CA!  i text him today - reminding him we will be out there and I will be collecting hugs. He send back - Yep ! And then a second text of "I got free tickets to Sea World." Looks like he is planning our sight seeing.

One more item - I so agree - wish we all could get together. I know some of us have. But I do know = one day there is going to be one BIG Pan Mom hugathon!

Until then - sweet dreams all and hugs

Kim, Congrats! Don't you wish just once we were invited. When my daughter re-enlisted she was in a foreign land on a mountain top, only a few could get shore duty to go with her. She sent me pictures of course she wasn't in any of them (she was in uniform) but I got to see the "view" she said later they did it again on ship to make it final. I agree hope you get to visit him while he's in NY CarolinaRose, Great news. It does a Mama's heart good to "see" her daughter. Hearing their voice is one thing, tells us a lot but Seeing them! Priceless. I'm smiling too Kim, just hearing the story. I miss those long chats. Can't tell you last time I talked to Sailor,,,hubby says probably last week. haha I don't think so, she had house guests, while trying to finish up school and working 2 jobs. Then she had her exams. Haven't heard a thing, they were getting ready for more house guests last I did hear, when she called her Dad for Father's day. But that doesn't count, I didn't get to talk to her :(

Comment by Kim (Proud Mom of Sailor) on Monday

Hi all, my son actually called me through Messenger on Saturday morning and we talked for 1 and 1/2 hours.  I couldn't believe it.  It was so nice to just talk like we use to even if it was about anything and/or nothing.  I still have a smile on my face.   

Comment by CarolinaRose on Monday

Congradulation to Kim and her son. Hope you get to spend time with him while he is on shore duty in NY.

Comment by CarolinaRose on Monday

Thanks Navymum and Blondie for my welcome. You are 100% correct Navymum is in Gods hands now and out of my rim of control. I just have to remind myself that I raised a strong young women who is brave enough to go out into the world and try to make a difference. Great news was she got a new iphone this weekend and we were able to facetime and imessage. She looks and sounds so happy and just seeing her face on that screen was such a help for me. I know once she is deployed that she will not be able to contact me as much but it was such a joy to hear from her.

Comment by Kim on Sunday

My son is stationed in NY for shore duty until the end of the year.

Yesterday he re-enlisted for 6 more years.  The entire division had a ceremony in a park on the Hudson in Cold Springs, NY.  They all went to lunch afterwards in uniform.  My son had a nice bonus and offered to pay the food bill.   A very nice man in the restaurant paid the entire bill.  What a nice thing to do!

Momplus2 - he's assigned to the Chancellorsville so i was lucky & not need his command. Maggs has best advice.

Anti M....Yes that is correct.
