Happy to hear my brother and husband were okay...but regardless this is still family! Wether you know them or not.
My heart and prayers go out to the family. The 293rd will be home in July next year, bring home my husband and brother...and all the other men and women that deployed on July 28th.

Holding my breath...

Is exactly what I was doing on Friday night. Alicia, a good friend of mine, who's husband is my husbands gunner had heard that 1 person was killed and 2 others injured in their group. It was difficult to sit and wait, not knowing. We were told their would be a briefing the next day at 3pm for the wives and family if they could make it. Well with me in Florida, that doesn't help much.
I didn't know them...but my heart goes out to their families.
But I must also add that I am so angry. And I don't know how to write without sounding like im ragging on my FRG group, but SERIOUSLY?! The people that where actually contacted were told 3 different stories, a platoon was MADE UP, the FRG leader ended up turning her phone off, as we're sitting here going "Okay, I haven't heard from my husband/wife".
I feel like that hasn't even touched upon the surface of how I feel and what happened.
But I really don't want to vent on a blog, when I know there are FRG leaders out there that do a great job keeping people informed and what not.

Besides the point, my husband is fine and will be here on R&R in 10 days! Although, my time is cut short because he is visiting family in Michigan before coming to Florida. Regardless, I get to see him and im pretty excited!
My brother is in Germany last I heard on his way here, so im happy that they're both okay!

But please do keep the 293rd MPCO in your prayers, as well as all of the other men and women that put their lives on the line every day!

Wish I had more to say tonight...

I wish I had more time to jump into blogging every day. It seems about a month ago I had all the time in the world. And now since the move and getting a new job (Subaru! Very excited).

Nothing much has happened, I got my couches. Although, the company they decided to ship them through busted the leather on one of the not very happy about that.

I've been pretty sick today...not wanting to move much.

The hubby is doing well, I heard from him today. Just 2 1/2 more weeks and he'll be here for r&r, very excited.
He'll be visiting family in Michigan and then on his way here.

Well, time for bed. Mandatory drug test tomorrow...Yuck.
Night, night!
