Hey everyone...

Well since Jason is home I will no longer be blogging on
lifebackhome.blogspot.com (as it was created to reflect on our life back home while Jason was deployed).

However I do have a MYSPACE account if any of you want to keep up with me that way.

You can find me at

Thank you for all of your prayers and sweet comments that kept me going the 15 1/2 months that Jason was deployed! I made some very special friends on here and hope to hear from you all in the future as well. If you leave comments on here it will still go to my email address so I will still get your comments. If you have a Myspace account you can leave me messages there too... or if not you can still look at my profile on there to see how I am doing!

Love you all!!

TOMORROW he will be home - TODAY is our anniversary

Well my hubby will FINALLY be home... TOMORROW morning (Saturday the 13th) is the day!! YEAH!!!! The bus rolls in about 8:00 am and we will be at the Armory awaiting his arrival! I didnt think this day would EVER come.. but it is finally here! We are just all so excited!

Oh and my daugther Erin had an allergic reaction to her friend's bodywash that she used last weekend and she is broke out in whelps and itching. We have been to her pediatrician doctor and to the ER. We have her on medication and she seems to be feeling much better and the whelps should start going down soon. She woke up this morning and the whelps were almost gone already!!

Oh and Happy Anniversay to me and Jason. Today is our Anniversay!!! Too bad he couldnt be home today...but hey tomorrow is good enough for me!

My husband coming home..... while another family grieves

We originally thought it would be Saturday when Jason and his unit got back to Alabama, but now it looks like it may be Sunday (and/or even Monday). Either way soon,....very very soon my husband will be home with us again.

As I sit here excited about my husband returning home to me.. my heart is deeply saddened as yesterday I learned of a friend dying. A guy I went to school with named Kevin Jennings passed away Sunday at the age of 33. My youngest daughter Alex told me when she got in the car Monday (as his youngest daughter Hunter is in her grade). She said it was a "heart attack". I was later told it was an aortic aneurysm.

I havent talked to Kevin in a long time, but would see him and his wife in passing. I saw his mom almost every day picking up their daughters from school. I cant begin to imagine how his wife Audra, and their daughters are feeling, how his brother Chris must feel loosing his only brother, and his parents loosing a child. I pray that they find comfort in their precious memories of Kevin.

This just breaks my heart. This just really bothers me.

Please keep the Jennings family in your prayers!!
