My name is ABW

I could tell you that tomorrow is my husband's last day of active duty.

I could also tell you that we cleaned the garage today and that we still have about half a ton of TA50 left.  We can't get rid of "this holster" because he used it in xxxx firefight.  The list goes on.  We still have the BDU's that he wore in Bosnia in 1995.  Ummmm......we were married in 1994. 

Then I found a picture of him in Bosnia.  He was so young!

I miss his clean shaven days.  He still--so far--has kept the GI haircut.  Gunner, if you are reading this, please pretend you have to be clean shaven every day!

I promise you that PT has not even entered his mind. 

I also promise you that if you are 5 years old and begging me for gum at 8:32 pm, which it is right now, that it won't happen.  Please go to bed my little man.

Speaking of Junior, he has been staying in school.  He lost a tooth, I actually bought boxers today in the hopes that he will be more comfortable in them.  Boys are not all peaches and cream!  I've learned more about stuff I don't want to know about than I want to!

Em turned 14.  How did this happen.  We got her a new cell phone, after she lost hers back in April for texting in class.  (It was disconnected before she returned home that day.)  She managed to drop it in the toilet a few weeks later. I am thankful that we know rice will solve the problem.

Abs is in orchestra after school two days a week, and we are still looking for a great violin teacher.  We had drama the other day where a girl who invited her to a party, uninvited her because some kids said they wouldn't go if she was there.  I was devastated.  I called the parent and explained the situation and the parent called back and the child apologized to me and to Abs.  My heart still hurts, but Abs wants to go to the party.  She's a tough one, so invitations aren't always extended to her unfortunately.  My poor baby.

We are babysitting my mom's cockapoo mix while she is out of town.  We love him.  I don't think she will love the fact that Gunner had him in our bed this morning.  The poor little guy was "crying" though.

I became a co-sponsor of the Science Club at school, God help me.  I have 18 4th graders right now.  I am thinking that my second graders were easier, but I am determined to make these guys love writing.  Maybe they need a blog.....

I spend entirely too much time at school preparing for the next week.  I am trying to get organized.  For me, that's a feat!

Gunner has gone overboard this Halloween.  He told me it's because he is always gone, and he wants to do every holiday to the hilt.  I'm the type of person where you put the tree up Christmas Eve and take it down immediately after the presents are opened.  I bet those days are gone.  It has been nice having him home.  I hope he doesn't think I am going to spend all Christmas vacation backing cookies!

Happy Halloween!
