Yooohoooo. Anyone home?
I came home Saturday from my nail appointment to find Husband sitting in my office installing a brand new 19" widescreen monitor. Ain't he sweet! It was a s'prise!

I have tons of emails to go through and I'm slowly getting there. Fortunately a lot of them are deletable, but being unable to sit for long periods in front of my home computer is keeping me from getting caught up with them as fast as I'd like.

I have many thank-you emails to send out to my birthday group, but want you all to know collectively that I have received from you.

Now to what's been going on with us.

Son is still living on his own, but struggling. I ended up going grocery shopping for him a couple of weeks ago because he was starving. His boss took time off from work and when boss doesn't work, neither does son, so he doesn't get paid. He had a choice between paying rent, electricity and groceries. Mom took care of groceries.

Puppies still sweet as ever. I know I keep promising pictures, and they are coming. I promise!

I had a test on my left hand this week to determine if I have carpal tunal or nerve damage. It's nerve damage. I'm now waiting to hear from my primary care giver about an orthapedic surgeon referral.

Husband is doing okay. He is continuing to keep a very close eye on his health. We're both eating better for it. We're both in the planning process of what we're going to do for the future. Right now we're discussing him re-enlisting for another 3 years. Yep, you read that right. Sigh. A Marine in his field has been forced into retirement and it's very likely that Husband will be getting orders to fill his billet. It's just down the road from where we are now, so we have to decide what we're going to do about that. (move further south, live on base or off base, etc.) Husband has been in unrelated meetings this week with many people, one who happens to be the decision maker as to where Marines in Husband's field get stationed. Hopefully by around August 10 we'll know for sure, but it looks like Husband may be headed back to Iraq if he is moved into that position. I have no idea how I really feel about this right now other than scarred spitless. I'm trying to not think about that right now though.

Stitching. Yes, I'm stitching, but very slowly due to my hand. It's my left hand and the hinderance is not being able to hold my qsnap for very long. I know I could use a stand, but I don't want to adjust to using one unless I absolutely have to. Old dog, new tricks kind of thing. :)

So that's a quick rundown on what's been going on.
