I just had to share the great news I received from Micah the other day which was MUCH needed. Mya and Tay were sick all weekend so we didn't leave the house and Monday I decided I needed to buckle down and do my taxes so by this time we all were going crazy being stuck in the house. I felt like the worst mom ever. If you could have seen my kids you would have agreed. It was about noon, none of us had showered, Mya was in her underwear with chocolate pudding ALL over in her scraggly hair, on her face and all over her belly. I think she might have painted herself with it but I'm not sure I wasn't paying attention because I was too involved in my stupid taxes. Poor little Tay who just wanted me to hold him got stuck in the highchair eating everything from Marshmallows, suckers, chocolate chips, Cheerios, Cheerios, and more Cheerios and anything else that Mya could find for to make him not cry.
Anyway, the whole point of this story is that Micah called and made my day when he told me they have shipped home all of the things that aren't necessary for them to use anymore and their replacements will be there next month (I feel sorry for them and their families) and that their last day at the compound is the first of May and then it is a month of trying to get home! Of course by the time they get 1,000 men out of Iraq by helicopter, and go through all of the army demobilization that could take a while, but they are expected to be home the first of June!! There are a lot of people who tell me not to get my hopes up and that he will not be home in June. Well, they might as well be talking to a wall because all I have are my hopes. Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
