Home Again

Conference was amazing and I'll have to find the time to write about it before time gets away from me....


For now, let me report that I'm safely back in Japan for another 5 days. I had a wonderful Sunday afternoon visit with these two.  They were suitably impressed with how many knew their mama. LOL 



We went out to Outback...where I TRIED to eat a full meal. We went to Target and bought gifts for me to bring home....and a new IPAD for me, myself and I. Michael had agreed it would be a nice deployment survival gift. LOL  I wasn't 100% sure I'd really spend the $ for it, until I saw all the folks enjoying them on the long airplane ride over the Pacific. 

Yes, my mama heart wishes I had more time with these guys....but what a JOY to see them doing so well in college, happy with life, taking time to drive 4 hours to visit for an afternoon.....as they drove off....and Jamin yelled, "Love you Mama," out the window...I was instantly transported back 20 years to Hardin, MT. These guys used to LOVE to chase all visitor's cars down the road as they left.....and it took everything I had not to chase after them. I settled for walking fast to the bottom of the car garage. ::snort:: 

I'm proud of them in their new lives....and count it as a heavenly wink from heaven to have been given some time with them this past week. 

I arrived home at 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday. I spent Wednesday unpacking, running errands, taking Arielle to the orthodontist. Today was spent with MOPS, more errands and desperately trying to get a refill of Jared's meds before we leave town next week. It looks like I may have to call up the chain of command on this one. Two weeks of trying to reach the doc...must have labs and a refill before we leave on Tuesday.

love the pic of you and the boys. So they gave you a Rx that needs a refill but didn't mark it as a refill? How annoying...
home for 5 days and then leaving again? Where are you off to next?

Federally controlled drug. No refill until labs, evidently doc forgets to put in labs. I called 2weeks ago.

Going mainly to get things set for Mike's folks, but will see the girls, my parents and brother too. It will be a whirlwind if we can get out.

How nice that you were able to see the boys and I hope you get to see the girls :) Are you going to be there over Thanksgiving?

Sis: We are so looking forward to a family Thanksgiving (minus Nathaniel/Heather and your boys) How sad. Next time we hope.

Will be praying for you all the way.

You will love Harmony....... she is a cutie.

love/prayers - Mom T.

Renee - fed controlled med, have to have labs and SEE a dr each month before refilled.

Cynthia - If we can get out on the rotator on Tues we'll spend Thanksgiving with the girls and my family in OR and then drive down to CA to see Mike's family.

What a sweet post! So glad that you got some time with your boys! Enjoy the new ipad. I'm starting to get the glaze in my eye for one, but I'm fighting it hard!

Stephanie, I resisted for about a year....a bit less, I guess.....but I'm glad to have it now...and now maybe Mike needs one too. LOL
