i just got off the phone with my son i'm relieved, i'm stressed, i'm whatever but i got to talk to him tonite before he departs tomorrow nite for Iraq he gets on the bus at 8:30pm and then takes flight i believe at 1a.m. or something like that i was a little concerned for a little while there he didn't seem to chippery the last few times we chatted from our conversation i think his excitement going to Iraq has diminished or at least he said he didn't care one way or another whether he went which is different than his initial desire but he says he's happy and all is good he also said he had no clue when he'll be back, which doesn't surprise me at all regardless when he comes home, i'll be setting some time aside for him even if all he wants is to hang out with just me and not go see his grandparents just as long as he makes it home safe and sound God bless him! God bless all our troops! it's time to wrap up Iraq and bring our soldiers home!!!!!
