I'm good, Joshua is is too....
he's working for us and driving, bought a car, rented a nice apt with his oldest brother Jason. He came over today and said 'mom, can you go grocery shopping with me' hahahaahahaha so…"
He's been home about one month, he's working for us, bought a truck and just moved out on Thursday. He and his oldest brother Jason who is almost 27 got a place, very cute. So, he's happy and doing well.....I must say it…"
Hi Laurie. Finally a new e-mail: "I watched the
video she sent it was pretty cool. Couple of pictures of sulli in there
which made him happy. Tell him mom
that he will call when he gets a chance and that he cant quite use a
computer right now but he's doing fine. He's
actually a nice really funny kid. He
makes me laugh more then anyone here just from some of the sh.. he says."
Of course he was talkng about DN's DVD....and I did edit his language! Othe than that a helo made a really cool lading....Al was kickig himself becaue he didn't take pictures.
Will do, Laurie. I'll give the message to Al this morning. Glad it was your "Sulli" :-) I don't know last names so I guessed. Yes, they work together. ABE V/2 Same workstation. Actually, I think that Josh's rack is right under Al's rack. Everything seems to be just fine. Very busy, but not so busy that they don't have time to tease each other (Josh put chips in Al's mouth when he feel asleep in the workstation ;-)
Hi,Laurie. Sorry I haven't responded sooner. I hope your son is OK. Mine seemed to be doing better, but just last week we received another email about how unhappy he is. I am worried as he is telling us he wants to go to Iraq or Afghanistan and is joining the IA program. Not much I can do, but we worry every day. I wish I could do more to support him from afar. What does your son do onboard?
Hi Laurie! I am doing great. How are you? Rusty is doing well. He going through C school and a couple of other schools. He should finish up by March. I went out to SD to see him back in July. He is coming Oct 9th through the 12th. I am very excited to see him. He bought a motorcycle...hmmm.. He hada good friend tragically killed a few weeks ago. They were out at dinner. They dropped Rusty off and as they were headed to a movie their car was hit and one of the Sailors was killed. Rusty was sitting in that very seat before he was dropped off. I am so sorry for the family that is grieving the loss but thankful Rusty had gotten out of the car. It was a terrible time for him. How is Josh? Trying to catch up with what is going on. I just havent had the time to get on lately. Try to do better in the future!
I think he just made time to email us because he knew we were worried about that package. He said doesn't have time for anything. So they are very busy. that was first email since they left port and only 3 sentences. So i would'nt worry too much. I know that's hard to do.
thank you laurie, He called the last night they were there and don't think we will hear from him again until they get to port. He said their job is such long hours. He can't wait to do the cranking part. He said they don't get a chance to do anything but work & catch some sleep. Hows Josh doing?
Sorry to hear that Josh is not too happy with his deployment. How long will he be gone for? Are you allowed to say where he is? Chris so far is very happy. He did his two weeks in PA and loved it. Now we are waiting to hear if he is going to be deployed to Kuwait. I will not be happy about that if it happens, but he knew that could happen when he signed up.
My mother had her surgery for Breast CA on Tuesday and is doing really well. Now we are waiting for the lab results on the lymph nodes.We should get them Tuesday. I was supposed to have another surgery yesterday. I was going to give up on reconstruction, but at the last second I had a talk with the doctor and we canceled the surgery. I am halfway done with my Chemo. I am hoping by 2010 this will all just be a bad memory!
