Getting Closer

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 23, 2010 by juliannah

I missed a call from Cpl Honda on Friday, but he left a message and said he would call Saturday at 8:00 am. When I checked my voicemail and heard the static I knew right off I had missed the call. All is good since I did talk to him on Saturday. He still can not give me homecoming dates. I am still not quite sure where he is because of course he can not tell me and Twitter and FaceBook seem to be way behind real time.

So, I am just hoping for smooth sailing from here. Want. My. Son. Home.

On another note, today is a tough day. 8 months, Tuesday. Still missing our Lolly Pop Kid.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Kicked the Gremlins in the A**

We took the car to the dealer and they replaced the battery, which BTW went bad all on it’s own. Not driving it had nothing to do with it. The car is still under warranty so there was no charge! All is good here in deployed son land. So far. I am up early waiting for a call from said deployed son.

I missed a call yesterday. I saw it was from an unknown number and just knew it was him. Plus, I had a feeling he would call about his car. That has been a major stress for him. But, it is all good.

I am hoping for homecoming dates. Should be soon. I will update when I find out. Of course, I can not say for sure on here, but I will verbally tell all who need to know what is happening. Stay tuned. I am attached to my phone. Waiting.

Thank God, he does not have a Toyota!

Military Monday – We Have Contact Again!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on February 8, 2010 by juliannah

Well, after a month of no contact I finally received a email from Cpl Honda. Yes, it is Cpl Honda. He was promoted on Feb 1! He said he feels like he can get on with his career now. Career is an important word because depending on the day you ask he would say he might want out or he might stay in. I’m sure other military families reading this will agree with that statement.

He also said they are making their way back to this side of the world and that makes this mommie very happy! There is nothing better than homecoming! I have only been to one and that was for my nephew, Sgt. Red. You literally can feel the happiness and excitement in the air.

So I guess I can start thinking about what I need to get done. Here’s hoping the deployment gremlins will leave me alone. So far, so good. Knock on wood. I think threatening to unleash the cat on them may have worked.

So, yes I will start the thinking!

Waiting for the Light Again

I wrote a post a while back about waiting for my cell phone light to flash. When it flashes I know I have email. That is my primary communication with my son, Cpl Honda. The last email was January 5. Yea, one month today. Sigh.

I am calling him Cpl Honda because he was supposed to be promoted on Feb 1, but I do not know for sure. I could not find any pictures of promotion ceremonies anywhere, so I will have to wait. Again.

I did read where the cast and director of Avatar visited the ship. Very exciting for them I am sure!. I have not seen it yet, but I saw a preview and it looks quite spectacular! I like to see Hollywood supporting our military. I know there are quite a few that do such as Gary Sinise, Kid Rock and Dennis Miller to name a few.

Reminder. Don’t forget to check juliannahbydesign for my upcoming giveaway.

Any who, I guess I will just sit here and stare down my cell phone while singing, This little light of mine…
