I have been on-line all day today. I didn't win today, looked at that 638 that fell here today and didn't think twice about it. mglsr, sal and myself had it in our post, you'd have thought I would have played it.
I should have known something great was gonna happen today because my husband never once told me to get off the computer. All he said was, "I'm gonna let you tire of that thing yourself"
I have enjoyed myself to the fullest. My son Dezmond signed in and we were able to chat for several hours. It was so amazing that each word he typed was just as though I could hear his voice. I miss him so. He is doing well. His job is driving an ambulance and inventory control for now while in Iraq.
He has met people from all over the world. I know that he is experiencing things that I would have never even thought of. He loves poetry and did open mike quite often before he left. We even had a fund raiser to support troops family who were in the city and county near where we live. I never knew you could miss somebody so much. Sometime I still worry about his safety, but I realized today, that more than worry, I just miss him. Tomorrow for Sunday Dinner, I will have 2 of his Army buddies over and I am so looking forward to it. I get phone calls from them every other day or so checking on me. At times I feel like I don't deserve it but I am glad that they do and they call me ma' just like Dezmond does.
All I can say, is that I am glad that I was able to stay on-line today and even though I was on a while yesterday while my husband was out, today was so much greater. I enjoy being here sooo much and it's been great!
