Weather, and Deployment

i am so totally NOT in a good mood today! we had storms and tornado warnings last night, and im exhausted...the kids and cats were freaking out about it all night long...I went back to bed fora little while this morning, but i feel like crap now...This is January!!!! in Michigan!!! its suppose to snow dammit, not rain...my yard is a muddy mess....I need to get the fence down that fell when we had our last big wind storm...and now, its wet and too heavy for me to move...The city is already on my ass about it being down on the ground...most of the time i can do this by myself, but these are big heavy wet, wooden privacy fence panels! they are hard enough to move dry, now they are soaked...guess im gonna break out my hammer and see what i can do about taking them apart....not sure where i will stash the wood from them...

Nick called this morning...we got to talk for about 25 minutes this time...he has been tryin to call from his new cell phone he got out there, but it gets a crappy signal...so we are usually cut off within 5 minutes of him calling....we are both pretty pissed today....they want to give him his R&R only a couple months after he is there, instead of later...that would mean a whole year of not seeing him after that....that year would go so very slow...they are trying to schedule the men who have babies on the way so that they can be there around the time of the births....i understand that...and i understand they are married and we are not...but that dosnt make our love any less ya know? i have kids too..and although they are not biologically his, he loves them, they love him....and they miss him too....I am nothing when it comes to the Army, and i understand this....it just makes us mad.....We can handle it together....our relationship is strong enough, its just the point...
