My husband is on his last day of reintegration. He's adjusting quite well, considering the tempo of his mission for the last year, and he's come away with minor woes, namely his back and feet. He's having trouble sleeping on our bed -- perhaps since he's used to sleeping on a cot or tank -- and he's waking up with a sore back. He also used to have the smoothest, nicest feet I'd seen, but this year in Iraq has just destroyed them. They're cracked and peeling and really awful. I just keep slathering him with Ben Gay and foot lotion, poor guy.

Also last night he and I were talking about all the myths that people throw around: all soldiers are poor, all Republicans are racists, etc. Today, thanks to RWN, I find a good article debunking the men-make-more-than-women myth.

Sarah - try this for cracked and rough feet - take some sugar and put either water or lemon juice in it until it is wet and able to be scooped with your fingers. Then lightly scrub his feet with it and the dead skin will come off and his feet with be smoother. I hope he can sleep better soon. His back probably adjusted to the weird sleeping places he had to endure and now regular sleeping is impossible. Glad he's home and tell him THANKS again for protecting our freedom. We appreciate both of you and your service to America.

Sarah, I wish I knew you and your husband. Because, if I did, I could send you a care package, thanking you both for your service and sharing your lives with us.

In the care package would be this;jsessionid=576157B0108CF5EF628B723137168FB7.jvm1

Best foot creme on the market -- and no smell (guys usually like that part). Incredible stuff -- it works on horses!

Agree..Barielle is GREAT. Small amendment to
Kathleen's recipe...I use olive oil and sugar
mixed in the hand to make the scrub..WORKS so
well. Tell your DH thanks again for his service
to our country. Come to think of it,THANK YOU did just as much in my book. All
military spouses do.
