Nerves

Today was fun with the girls. We went to our gymnastics play date like usual. Then hit the McDonalds for our usual Friday treat. All this time I am expecting our phone to ring, only to learn that really and truly they may not let him online or on his phone until______________? We don't know. I am literally sick over this. I fully expected we'd be able to talk or at least text during holding. I am very.... sad, for lack of a better word. Thankfully, the girls are being great and don't seem to sense anything out of the ordinary. They did say that they think daddy is missing them and that he wants to play "Pretty, Pretty Princess" with them the next time he sees them. They think it's exciting that he is "on base", but they obviously have no idea what this means. Tonight we are going to color Easter eggs. I tell you though, having my husband gone I realize how much I love him and how much he does for me and the girls. Maybe for Easter I will get a long call from him. Here's hoping.

Your kids are funny. I especially like the "Praise the Lord" line, haha. I hop they will let him call on Easter! Thats one good thing to look forward to. So far for us, the army has been nice as far as Holidays go. In fact, on Thanksgiving DH got to call me several times and it was the best Thanksgiving I had ever had :)

I'm sure he'll get to call on Easter. After all, it's a day of new beginnings-Praise God!
