Well, sorry I haven't been posting much, but witht hte puppy, and my hubby leaving, I have had my hands full. He left Monday, and won't be back for 4-6 months! A few weeks ago, I announced I got my license, and was so happy, don't yah know? not even 48 hours after Rob leaves, my car dies! They say that as soon as they leave everything goes wrong! Last night when I got home from work, I went to turn the car off, and it won't turn all the way on or off,the key is stuck in the middle position, so all my dash lights, the AC, and lights and stuff are on, but the motor won't start or turn all the way off. I had a neighbor come by and disconnect the battery, so at least it wouldn't wear down. today when I got to work I have to talk to my friend, who is going to school to be a mechanic if he can possibly come by and look at it, and see if he can fix it, or what, i may be needing to

The only stitching I got done, was yesterday I worked on Dolphins Domain, while the puppy was at the vet's getting "fixed". But right now I just don't feel like doing much of anything. I feel a little down and out right now, yesterday I was so excited, I had my car, was able to get around and started thinking, "Hey! this deployment stuff won't be so bad," and then "Wham!" now I feel like we are back to square one. No car, have to take the bus to work, have no way to get my puppy around, my friend/neighbor, the one who helped me disconnect the battery last night took me this morning to pick my pup up from her surgery. I am just pretty frustrated. but I am not going to get too down about it, until I know what can or cannot be done about the problem.

But! on the other hand, DH called me this morning at 4, it was great to hear from him. Because last time we had talked he said he didn't think he would be able to call for about a week, or a few days at least. Well, I am going to go try to get into some stitching, before I have to get ready for work. Bye!

I hope your car gets fixed soon... and it's not too expensive! Having the ability to get around on your own would definitely ease the pain of deployment a little bit. 4-6 months is such a long time to be apart!

I'm so sorry about your husband's deployment. That would be so hard.... and now your car.... when it rains, it pours! But at least you have your beloved little puppy, and he will help ease the emptiness. Hope you get your car back very soon, and I understand totally about times when you just don't feel like stitching, even though it does help to get your mind on it to ease your troubles. It's just getting started that's the hard part. Enjoy your new baby!

(((((Lana))))) I feel so bad for you. I know the independence a car brings. And to have this happen right when your husband leaves is awful. Chin up!! I am sending positive vibes your way that fixing the car won't be too bad on the wallet and that the next few months go by quickly for you. Cuddle with the puppy. It will make you smile.

Lana,
I'm sorry your husband had to leave. I will keep him and his troop and all troops in my prayers. My sisters dh was deployed to afghanistan a year ago. I still have in my yard a yellow ribbon to support all troops. I will not take it down until each and everyone is home from Iraq and Afghanistan. I hope you get your car trouble worked out. Please do not feel as if your all alone. I as well as others are here for you and praying hard for your husbands safe return. If you ever feel the need to chat You can always email me. Do not worry you will get to your stitching when you feel the time is right. Until then keep your chin up and a smile in your heart.
Hugs,
Carolyn

Hi Lana!
I understand how hard it is to be separated for such a long time... The beginning is always harder, as time goes by, you see the end of it getting closer, and things will improve...
You certainly didn't need that car problem on top of it, and your current state of mind makes it overwhelming, when this is finally something that will certainly be fixed quickly. I hope it won't be too expensive, though...
Give your puppy a hug, you'll be surprised to see how well they perceive our mood...
Lots of hugs!
