December 16, 2008


The last time, I had a vivid dream about the welcome home ceremony. Last night I dreamt that the husband and I were back together in our kitchen. I was wearing the outfit I plan to wear to pick him up, and he was drinking a beer. I woke up with a jolt and realized disappointedly that it was just a dream.

Today has been a very long day. Right now was the original time I was supposed to go pick him up.

I thought I'd better get back to Real blogging today instead of this dumb personal stuff I've been doing. But I can't seem to concentrate on anything lately. I just can't get into the news. Even Blagojevich's bleep-laden tirades couldn't compel me to blog. Only to laugh at home and tease my parents about living in Illinois.

I'm just sitting here crocheting and looking at the clock. Maybe I ought to do some things on that list; it seems healthier than this Waiting Game. I thought about going in to work today even though I got the day off, but the only task I have left to do at work is to put together more of those foam structures. That definitely ain't healthy.

And I haven't heard anything else today, no more updates, no new timeline, no hint of things to come.

Just lots of crocheting.

No, no more foamies for now! I don't want you foaming at the mouth! :)

You're not a journalist. Relax. We come here for you, not for national or international news. Your affairs are just as real as "current affairs." And no one knows them better than you do.

I second Amritas on the no worries about not blogging current events. And crocheting is good, nothing wrong with that. :)

*Hugs* re: your hubby's delay coming home. That sucks, but hopefully he'll still be home before Xmas.

So sorry that you haven't even gotten an update!!! Crochet away... or maybe start kickboxing ;-). Or put the phone on *really noticeable* buzz mode out at the firing range??? ;-) It only helped me to get OUT when I was awaiting updates...

And seriously, *more hugs*.

Still trying to figure out if "cleaning the carpet" is a euphemism...

Whew! Waiting sucks.

First tip: Stop looking at the clock or the phone.

Second tip: Invite a friend over!!!

Charles looks thrilled in his doggie 'do photo. LOL

I HATE the waiting for you! At least you are crafty...I'm so not and that means instead of crocheting or knitting, I pace. Or, bake and eat everything as soon as it comes from the oven. If only I could bake, eat and THEN pace, I might not have to worry about gaining a ton??

CRAP!! I want this to be over for you!
