I have been printing off my posts and comments and sending them to him. He says the guys love it when he reads them out loud. Who would have thought? I have a little following of soldiers... too cool!
Here is a little excerpt from his most recent letter:
"They're keeping us really busy here. That's why I haven't had time to write. I've also been really busy doing all the work the other guys either can't figure out or flat out won't do. Like sweeping the floor instead of just pushing around the dirt, and doing hospital corners on the bed.
"You'll love it when I come home, and keep the house clean just because it will drive me nuts (It's about time!).
"Looking at the pictures really makes me miss you and the boys. Keep them coming though, they're great! It makes me feel like I'm not missing out completely while I am gone.
"I'll be doing the gas chamber and the overnight stake out this week. It should be fun!"
Now, I don't know about you, but the gas chamber doesn't sound like a lot of fun to me... and it doesn't look at all like these guys are having fun:
You wouldn't believe how many videos of the gas chamber are on YouTube... crazy.
While I was looking for a good gas chamber clip, I watched a few graduations and family days and it almost made me wish I could go... actually, it made my heart sink low that I can't go. Oh, well. That's what happens when you have two little bundles of err... "joy" to take care of and no money for travel... bummer.
Enough of woe is me! Have an awesome weekend!!!
...and one last word. I just want to apologize for my lack of creative funniness. It is really hard to get inspiration when my inspiration is in South Carolina. Ben makes me what I am. He keeps me going. It has been really hard to come up with stuff without him around. But I am going to do some serious brainstorming this weekend, so I hope you will come back next week for some more of my nuttiness!
