Another interesting day, with a busy morning start. We got the girls to their pre-schools after a breakfast of Cheerios (seems to be their favorite), and then we went up to Camp Pendleton, for a USO "event." Actually it wasn't much of an event, it was simply a time that was requested by the USO, to interview some of the Wounded Warriors, and how the USO has been a factor in their military lives. Jason was volun-told to be there, and it was strongly encouraged that he wear his Dress Blues. Jason, being the good Marine, did just that, and went through the effort to make sure everything was set up correctly. He looked good, and as we dropped Jackie off (Stacy was dropped off first) we headed up to Camp Pendleton.

The interview took about 25 minutes, and it seemed like we were the first ones to get there, so actually that was a good thing. As soon as they were set up, Jason was in front of the camera. He had already seen most of the questions, so he was basically ready for what they were going to ask, and he did quite well. We were thanked for coming and we said our good-bye's, and then we were headed back home. Traffic wasn't too bad on the return journey, and we made it back in just over 30 minutes. There wasn't much to do afterward, so Jason took his shower (wounds looking good) and then he laid down. We actually stopped for lunch on the way back, so that wasn't even an issue at this point.

Tonight was quiet, since the girls are not with us for the next five days. I did a few things around the house, but it is so much more quiet with no little ones running around. I guess I was just too used to having them here. I only have a few more days and they'll be back. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Glad it didn't last that long so Jason could get home.
    Pour out your heart to the Lord! He hears! Praying!!!!!!!!
    Psalms 42:1-5 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

  2. You know I'm always here praying!
    Isaiah 43:1-3a But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel...
