Ok so I have only been home for a few days, and yesterday was hubbys first day back at work since I got back...

He walked in at 8:30pm and looked around....the kids had had baths, the laundry was done, the living room was clean, the dished were washed and his supper was in the fridge....

He said "how did you do all of this?! Did you just follow around behind them picking things up all day?!?! I can never get this much done!!"

I said "I did this every day before I got called up."

and his wonderful response was " Yeah but I didnt know how hard it was then!!"

So I got thank yous, hugs, kisses, my bath run for me and an ice cream sunday....

I am not sure if appreciation was worth a year away, but it sure is nice to have isnt it!!

Isn't it nice when they appreciate you?

But do tell, how DID you get it all done?

Congratulations on getting home safely!! I had read some of your other posts and was hoping you weren't in the units who got their tours extended. Good to hear that things are going well so far!

PS My brother was in Iraq with the 101st last year. Thankfully, he also made it home safely.
