time marches on

One of the things that is hard to do here is keep up with the "stateside time" of things. When you do the same thing 6.5 days a week day in and day out, your mind tends to forget that all of a sudden "oh another week has gone by". I can remember how how it was getting off the plane for the first time in Kuwait, but I could not tell you what I did 3 weeks ago Monday, except for it was a monday so it was more than likely busy in the shop. This is the only way I can figure our Army counterparts are able to cope with 15 month deployments. You just get in a routine and go with it.

Children never cease to amaze us. A couple of the care packages we received had valentines made by various aged school children. Though I do enjoy chocolate, some of the pieces of chocolate were held to the cards with so much glue that I am not sure its ok to eat it. (No to what you are thinking only kids are allowed to eat glue and not get sick from it ).

I had to laugh about your example of trying to remember 3 weeks ago Monday. You have been away so long that you no longer remember that the memorable days of the week happen during the weekend! Shoot, I bet most of us here in "the states" aren't going to remember 3 weeks ago Monday either! Don't worry, you'll catch up quickly when you're back. : )
I know what you mean about kids and chocolate with the glue attached. Sounds like my 2nd graders. Glad you got a bunch of Valentines. Remembering our troops is being talked about everywhere. Everybody is pulling for you guys. Take care and see you soon! Carolyn's Mom
